Question: To what extent do you wonder or know the neocons to be in league with Wall Street?

And Wall Street-ish entities, meaning, 1% motives and motivations?

I know that they installed Wolfowitz in the World Bank. Interested in what you know and think.

1. My opinion, only, based on omnivorous reading

The Neocons weaseled their way into government, cut deals with the Banksters, and proceeded to lose Latin America and the Middle East.

Meanwhile, the Chinese stole Africa right out from under their noses, and expanded in their own back yard (Asia).

The free-market-privateers succeeded in dissipating 100 years of America's economic process, while the banksters sank the euro and everything connected to it.

Now that both Neocons and Banksters have come up criminal, we the unaffiliated have two messes to clean up. If we have the will.

The Banksters have an upper hand at the moment, because they still have the money (and aren't in jail). But the global economy is in such dire straits that even the Banksters can see that the light at the end of that tunnel is an oncoming train.

Right at this moment, neither group is in the power seat. Because the people are rising in revolt. Finally.

And Obama, trying to be everything to all people, is the craftiest of the lot, and therefore, the one to watch.

If you want heroes, look in Latin America and Iceland. And Anonymous, and Occupy.

2. I do know that, thanks to some manipulation of wording and common since...

Small Farmers are getting put out of business. All do to how they have always afforded to grown crops and this new pattens on seeds.

That many corporations are taking advantage of the "Right to work" laws to break unions and hire people for only minimum/ unlivable wage.

And that, due to how the banks did business, many are losing homes. These homes were not affordable, however to make a quick buck, the people were lead to believe they could.

I wonder, by just looking at these three issues, if this is a coincidence or not? They represent what people need.

3. "Right to work" results in increased profits for corporations and the foreclosure engine does not

 

harm the very rich in the least, quite the opposite. It turns out that housing is an easy target for them with little downside in the process. Farming I don't know about but it's an excellent point.

4. They seem way to connected to be just coincidence that the Corps are so bent on keeping such control.

A long time ago many big business controlled housing and the company store. You bought everything at that store. You never made enough to pay them off or afford to get out of the housing. This was a great way to keep people from joining unions. If they even tried, the store would call the debt and they would be tossed out of the home. An example of people be thrown out was what lead up to the The Ludlow Massacre. The people, family's, were thrown out and the had to live in tents while they tried to protest conditions.


We now look at what is going on right now. We have people losing there homes and will need help soon from some where. We have Corps. that have patterned seeds. Right now a Farmer has a case being looked at by The Supreme Court. And There is an up coming case about the of DNA. This is a big control of food ( Company Store) and there has been talk, just at this time mind you, that some Corps. are looking buy some houses to help employees ( Company Housing again?). And now with the Unions going down....

I see us heading for a time similar to that of the 1920 and later. That is if country do not wake up soon. The Corporations enjoyed a large amount of power over people back then. They lost much of it with birth of Unions and the minimum wage. Now, thanks to some really stupid politicians, the minimum wage is working for the big business and the Union is losing their ability to fight for what people need.

Now, they may not have a "company store" yet, but with such control over the food supply that they are getting...

5. Exactly! A most salient point, one which has slipped from my vocabularly as of late

 

for some reason, despite it being the complete truth.

I encourage you to see my data dump on the over all subject:
