Both parties are now on the take from the same corporate lobbyists.
The jobs report is out, it's worse than expected. The national jobless rate rose past 8.5%. These #s don't even factor in under-employment. Most people have settled for lower wages, less hrs & fewer benefits. Underemployment is worse than unemployment. It's around 16%. This is madness! we keep bailing out & pumping billions into the lavish execs, ceos n cfo's. Their theory? it ($) will trickle down. They will be nice enough to give people loans. Washington is continuing to ignore outsourcing & free trade ('cause their global corp. buddies "rake in" higher profit margins, sending our jobs overseas). The upper management lives like kings w/ slave wages,no regulations,no quality control hassles, no worry about polluting,no social security,no benefits, dump your toxic waste in the rivers. Saves $. ............& our borders are still a joke. hhhhmmmmmm...wonder why? I've got news for you Washington! people won't be standing in lines buying up those cars & houses! We need to get control of our gov't immediately. Remove all lobbyists! Remove all corporate funding in campaigns. let them vote like "we the people" I'd bail from the market, nothing is regulated anymore. The SEC can't even enforce a reg- sho proposal. Nobody even knows how many outstanding shares are "really" in your stocks anymore. The SEC is one of the worst depts in the gov't. It's overpaid! & completely useless! I doubt they even show up to work 50% of the year. Nothing is being fixed, we're just spending a whole bunch'a $ & the top 2-4% of the wealthiest "bloodsuckers" in the world are circulating it amongst themselves. They have siezed total control! This is the largest class separation in history. Don't be surprised to see increases in welfare/or tent cities! I guess they will section 8 their gluttonous housing grab. They still haven't imprisoned the pigs who profited off of toxic CDO's,junk mortgage backed securities,flooding the mkt w/pools of toxic assets,rubberstamping tripple A ratings,writing out credit default swaps til no end. This AIG fiasco! (the black hole of spending) w/ trillions in credit default swaps outstanding! They were even greedier than Maddoff!
ps. you may want to look into bank regulations. The Glass-Stegal act was put in place in 1933 to avoid greedy wallstreet banking & taken out in 1999. Allowing bank execs to run wild! commercial banks are now "corrupt" Wallstreet banks. also the CRA "loose loans" act of 95. It basically takes out numerous rules of home buying n selling. Sound familar Fanny? Freddy? They are either incompetent or on the take in Washington. They have not put any regulation back in! Regulation that they took out. It's allowing rich criminals to steal so much, it's effecting the whole world!!
