Clash Of The Titanic Bloodsuckers

In case you didn't notice; there have already been what are essentially five too-big-to-fail bank bailouts in the United States – and now there's another one planned into the U.S. budget. The big banksters have now moved beyond stealing from the poor, the middle class, the upper middle class, the young and the unborn. They're now after money from the sick, the elderly, and even other members of the oligarchy. 

 
The big banksters are now after a bigger piece of the Federal budget. With the recent sequester, the banking industry is poised to take taxpayer money from the military/industrial complex and the health “care” industry. This could get bloody. Maybe it already has.

...Oh, nobody told you that we're working on our sixth bank bailout?
Well, the term “bailout” is just so incendiary. So, they simply called the bank bailouts something else.
Of course, B.S. by any other name is still a smelly pile of bovine excrement.

Why would those in power want to lie to us?
Because they want to hide an injustice – being done to us.

Lies from our “leaders” are not to be taken lightly.

Thirty years of the LIE of “free market” capitalism has led to oligarchy control of America – and they are taking advantage of us in every way they can.

For more than three decades we have carelessly watched as our Nation's companies morphed into monopolies. There's been a constant stream of news reports about mergers, buyouts, takeovers, hostile takeovers, multi-billion dollar (bankrupting) lawsuits, over-regulation for the little guy, and even what is effectively “corporate anarchy” for the big guys.

Apparently, the way to win in our form of capitalism is to monopolize an industry, sell practically instant garbage (that has to be replaced often), and charge whatever the market will bear for it. Oh... And two more things, if you're particularly sleazy; get the laws changed to favor your business, and get as much taxpayer money as you can. And if your company screws up in spite of all those unfair advantages, be too-big-to-fail.

 
As you may have noticed; four major (monopolistic) industries control most of what happens in the United States. These industries are the too-big-to-fail banks, the military/industrial complex, the fossil fuel industry, and the health “care” industry.  

These four industries rely heavily on taxpayer and ratepayer monies. We're talking billions and billions of dollars – our dollars – for each of these industries – every year!

The recent sequester has cut into the profits of two of these industries; the military/industrial complex and the health “care” industry. And why? To pay down the National debt. But the mass media never seems to mention who's actually going to get paid. The “debt” is owed to the too-big-to-fail banks, of course.

Once you start to think about it, this sequester starts to look like another bank bailout. In fact, there are a number of what are effectively big bank bailouts we've had to endure:

Bailout #1 – the official bank bailout of 2008; TARP
Bailout #2 – the secret FED bailout; the printing of $16 trillion dollars to be loaned to the banks (including foreign banks)
Bailout #3 – the reduction of the prime lending rate to near zero to the big banks (so that they could borrow money for next to nothing – and pay out next to nothing to savings accounts
Bailout #4 – the $40 billion dollar a month FED buy out of bad mortgage-backed security debts 
Bailout #5 – the sequester
and now:
Bailout #6 – the proposed reduction of Social Security benefits

Of course, with the exception of TARP, the mass media won't call the big buck bank payoffs bailouts. Apparently, they're hoping we won't notice the money to pay down the National debt is money for big banks. Or at least they're hoping we won't notice until it's too late.

Which brings me to the latest distractions; the bombing of the Boston Marathon and the poison letters sent to President Obama and Senator Roger Wicker (R-Miss). Both of these stories are very newsworthy. However, we can expect never ending coverage of these events. Which is a little curious. Because there isn't much we, as citizens, can do about them.

But on the other hand; we could work to stop the Social Security cutbacks. We were. Public resistance was building up against the austerity measures aimed at Social Security. And now; losing our Social Security is suddenly on the back burner in most people's minds. How convenient...

I'm not saying the banks are behind the terrorist attacks. However, the too-big-to-fail banks do spend a lot of money on advertising in mass media news. What does that buy them? Silence. The for-profit “news” corporations know the score. They better change the subject about Social Security, or they won't get paid.

But who else wants the bombings on the front page? Homeland Security, of course. I'm sure they weren't too thrilled about the sequester cuts. In fact, I'm sure they're already working overtime trying to get that money back.

It's quite likely that the rest of the military/industrial complex secretly cheered about the terrorist attacks too. They knew the American people weren't falling for the North Korea hype.

Let's face it; one little-bitty country with a couple of nuclear bombs isn't really a threat to us. Attacking America would just be “Assured Self Destruction.” We all know that if the U.S. wanted to, we could literally vaporize their whole little country. We all realize that the only way Korea would ever launch nuclear weapons on the U.S. is if they were desperately losing a war with us. In other words Korea's only practical use of nuclear weapons is as a last ditch act of defiance.

After the invasion of Iraq and the accusation by then President George Bush Jr. that North Korea was part of the “Axis of Evil,” you can't blame Kim Jong Un for being a little paranoid. So, what does America do? We yank his chain...

The U.S. conducted military exercises recently right near North Korea. They knew the new leader of North Korea would just have to say something about it. And then U.S. mass media jumped on his statements as a threat to attack us. And this all happens right about the same time as the sequester... Things like this don't just happen. This blatantly looks like a contrived threat to stop the Federal cuts. I think most Americans would concur. We were never fully convinced Korea was really a threat.

And then the Boston Marathon gets bombed.
How convenient...

Homeland Security faces funding cuts from the sequester – and suddenly there is this slaughter of the innocents. This “terrorist attack” just doesn't look that plausible.

Nonetheless at this point, when it comes down to National politics; it doesn't really matter who did it. Homeland Security will react to this just as if it were a false-flag operation. That's right; expect just what you saw with 9/11 (unending terrorism hype). What really matters is; this act of terrorism can be used as an excuse to get more taxpayer money. The Boston Marathon bombing will be used over and over again as an excuse to refund Homeland Security and the military/industrial complex. Never mind the fact that even before the sequestration cuts, with billions of taxpayer dollars funding anti-terrorist efforts; they failed to prevent it...

Homeland Security failed us. And they will be arguing that we reward them for that – with more taxpayer dollars.

And the military/industrial complex failed us in the Middle East. America now spends more on “Defense” than the next 12 countries combined – and we are less safe now than we were before we (for lack of a better word) invaded Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. etc. Of course; what the military/industrial complex really wants is not more war, but more taxpayer dollars. Nonetheless; if that takes another war....

This all reminds me of a George Carlin quote on a bumper sticker I recently saw; “Fighting for Peace is like Screwing for Virginity.” 

(Guess what: Only the American public is going to have to suffer the austerity consequences of the greed of the Titanic Bloodsuckers. The Obama budget request already includes returning 80% of the sequestered military/industrial funding – already!)

As I mentioned earlier; there are four major monopolistic industries that run most of our country. I haven't spent much time on the health “care” industry. The recent austerity moves are most likely to hurt the profits of the health “care” industry. I pity the sick. But I don't pity the health “care” industry. We have the most expensive health care in the world and America ranks as the 40th country in life expectancy. Our health “care” industry has failed us also.

I also haven't mentioned the fossil fuel industry. But they are so big that even the banksters can't take their tax monies. In fact, they are so big that they can force America to run the Keystone XL pipeline across America to sell oil to foreign countries, so that they can raise their prices on us! Moreover, the fact that they secretly hold back renewable energy development so that they can continue to poison our air, land, water, and destroy the balance of our atmosphere - makes the fossil fuel industry the biggest failure to humanity in history! 

And the too-big-to-fail banks? Everybody knows the banksters have failed us. The takeover of America is just another hostile takeover for them. But they're not the only ones. This is just what monopolies do.

In the short run (shorter than our lifespans), the Titanic Bloodsuckers haven't failed themselves. They want to take as much money as they can get from the taxpayers and the ratepayers. In this, they've been very successful.

This isn't about terrorism.
This isn't about National Security.
This isn't about helping the sick.
This isn't about energy independence. (That would mean generating our own power.)
And this isn't about saving our economy.

This is about taking your money.
This is about taking you savings.
This is about taking your tax dollars.
This is about taking your wages before you ever even see them.

Our taxation system has become a racket – that just funnels our money to the biggest monopolies – who don't give us anywhere near our money's worth. But that wasn't good enough. Now they're cutting our government benefits, that we taxpayers pay for, to boost their profits. They're manipulating our money, so that eventually it will be virtually worthless. And they're driving down our pay, so that they can keep the profits for themselves.

President Obama stated in a recent speech:

So to change Washington, you, the American people, are going to have to sustain some passion about this. And when necessary, you've got to send the right people to Washington. And that requires strength, and it requires persistence.”

After five years, it has become obvious that even the most powerful man on the planet, the President of the United States, can't get real change without the American people forcing the system to fix things.

Though President Obama's speech was about gun control (which I believe is mostly a distraction), it applies also to the budget. Social Security is about to be whittled away while the bloated and ineffective military/industrial complex is about to get almost all of our hard fought sequester cuts back – and the too-big-to-fail banks are going to get another bailout.

The Republicans are the Party of austerity.
But the Demcrats have become only the Party of less austerity.
Only the people will have to suffer austerity.
The Titanic Bloodsuckers will take all of the tax money you pay, and then want more.   
Please, don't be distracted.

To do nothing is to willingly become a slave to a dysfunctional system that will ultimately crash in upon itself.

Thanks for sharing your great post. I’m starting with the most obvious idea. However, it’s actually one that’s sorely lacking

on many web design blogs. Advise people on the different styles, graphics, structures and

functions a website can have. People want to be inspired and guided through the

possibilities that exist. They also want to know you really do understand the many

complexities of designing a website.
