Billions have been shuffled into the private "banksters" that Obama said he was going to crack down on. He hasn't.
Had several trillion dollars actually been spent on projects like they promised I think things could have been slightly different and maybe your business might have benefited. I personally don't know anyone who has benefited from stimulus money. What I do know is that every turn fees and taxes are going up as a result.
We've basically dug ourselves into a deeper hole and the results of the spending are not apparent IMO. Like I said a couple weeks ago. The son of b****es haven't even taken the time to repaint the stripes on I-70. That is the one of two major highways in Colorado and they can't even make that a little easier to travel on at night? Instead BILLIONS are being stolen right in front of our very eyes.
Furthermore we're continuing down the same path of war. There is no change there. Billions pissed away on the war and to countries like Israel while hard working Americans like yourself nut are closing your business.
Yeah we can look back and blame Bush. It's easy to do and he deserves his blame. Well I blame Bush, I blame Americans who took money from banks that they shouldn't have, and I blame our congress and Barack Obama for continuing down the same path as before. Lastly I blame each and every American for letting it all happen myself included.
I've always said. At some point Americans will get angry. If and when we do maybe we'll get change. But for now there is no change. It's more of the same if not worse. Don't tell me you didn't have business during the Bush economy Nut?
Originally, right after the crash, I bought into the Keynesian idea that the government had to pump liquidity into the economy in order to get things going. The best way to do this is directly. Start projects. Put people to work. Instead, we funneled billions to bankers that refused to make loans or loosen credit. It's clear now that the banksters and Wall Street crowd have only one, abiding interest - their own pockets. And everyone else can go **** themselves. In fact, they are now pumping that taxpayer money into new derivative schemes that will cause even greater destruction down the road. But given that they also own half the Congress (IMO), there's nothing Obama, or any other president, can do about it. Of course, telling them they're "too big to fail" is about the worst possible thing you could do. Between China and the banksters, we are serfs. In other words, in the immortal words of dortoH (where did he disappear to?), we're ****ed.
