Perfect commentary on the ultra-rich and their political sycophants here. I have to confess our Corporate Masters have expertly steered a potential class revolution into an effective war on publicly elected officials, who, to give them their due, are largely beholden to the exploding coffers provided for their political survival.
NPR commentary trumpeted “modest” projected gains on the national employment picture. I’d prefer a way to hold corporate feet to the fire and say ten million jobs or else we start dismantling and go local.
Really, people should be mad as all get-out at the financial picture which, except for the addition of millions to the unemployment lines, seems just like business as usual. Even from my view as a gainfully-employed homeowner, I can tell you I get refi offers for my above-water home about every other week. And after I did refinance with my local bank in August, the loan has now been sold or reprocessed three times before ending up with Freddie Mac.
You won’t get much wind of this sort of populist criticism in the corporate-financed Tea Partition movement.
