  •  Controlling the MIIC = Dodd Frank "controlling... (30+ / 0-)

    ...Wall Street." It ain't happening. The country was almost blown away, financially, just under five years ago. And, all the serious people entered into the Grand Kabuki known as Dodd-Frank to "handle it." Well, they handled it, alright! Now the TBTF's are much bigger, income inequality's a shitload greater, Wall Street's buying up homes for cash,  and we're still more than 2,000,000 jobs down from where we were in November 2007, when the Lesser Depression "Great Recession" (what a joke it is calling it that) first started.

    See Krugman from yesterday: "The Big Shrug."

    Now, we're going to "control" the "Military Industrial/Intelligence Complex."

    It's too bad the country's run by five corporate gangs: Big Energy, Big Ag/Food, Wall Street, the Military Industrial/Intelligence Complex, and Big Pharma. Because the only one that's "controlling" anything is them.

    And, anyone that thinks we're going to "CONTROL" the MI/IC, without a MAJOR realignment with regard to how we're looking at these matters these days,  is f*cking kidding themselves, too!

    So, people like yours truly make a big thing about all those "conspiracy theories," posting commentary from highly credible sources, like Jim Bamford, regarding the rise of our surveillance state, 18+ months ago, when Stellar Wind was first made known to the public, and here we are...AGAIN! And, exponentially worse than we were 18 months ago.

    Rinse! Repeat!

    Yeah, go sign a petition and write a letter to your congressman. See what that'll getcha...

    The definition of insanity: REPEATING THE SAME ACTION AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT.

    Our political system has failed us, and monumentally so.

    Don't mind me...you know, all these "conspiracy theories," and such....
