All 400+ pages of junk politics! What makes me mad is this original bailout started at 3 pages... THREE, by the time it hit the floor it was 400+ with pork.... WTH!
Some of it is pork, but giving an unknown person (remember the secretary of the treasury will change in January) the authority to spend $700,000,000,000 with only 3 pages of directions is not the greatest idea either.
I probably have close to 400 pages of documents for buying a house; which is a much simpler often repeated transaction.
I saw that there were some ridiculous and insulting things tacked onto this "Bailout "Bill. We deserve to know who pushed for them, why, and then have the opportunity to vote them out of office. This whole thing was difficult enough to stomach at 700 Billion, now that it's loaded with wasteful spending I'd like to see it fail.
Push the play button. I watched about 40 mins of this video. It was interesting to say the least but when it stated to blame the IMF and World bank for the current crisis I lost had to close it.
Has a bizarre beginning but picked up after a few minutes
I'm at the point where he asserts that world banks are basically a form of slavery. Though it's fascinating, it sounds like a deeply thought out distortion of capitalism, basically saying that working to pay my mortgage is slavery to the bank that my mortgage is from...a really strange way of translating paying off debt.
The high quality of the sound & video production leave me questioning who produced this...where's the actual link?
It almost comes off like a KGB propaganda video....or some anarchist group looking to stir the pot.
