Watched Too Big to Fail

it made me sick to my stomach - I hope everyone gets a chance to see this -

Also watched Margin Call and there was something said in that movie that the big guys NEVER lose no matter what they did, they always come out on top

What a totally fucked up country we live in

1. Correction...

 

While it is true we live in a totally fucked up country, the worse news is that we live in a totally fucked up world. Multi-national corporations have no respect for borders. They take their corruption wherever they want.

2. We always treat "the market" like it is some god

we have to serve and pay homage to.
We all listen to the business news called "your money" when in fact it is not our money. We worry when the money that is not ours doesn't grow and feel good when the money that is not ours grows. We are willing to take it on the chin to help the money that isn't ours grow.
We are conditioned to bow and serve "the market"
That is the same as buying into the "job creator" bull shit. Just watch how many here will say we have to make sure "the market" grows.

4. Right! The House never loses. Just like Vegas.

As a matter of fact, it's so much like Vegas that one could be mistaken for thinking of today's markets as casinos. And the house always wins.
