Amazing stupidity at its finest.
In 2007 the top 5 American banks controlled 43% of the American
Economy..and because the Mortgaged Backed Derivatives and Securities
Market, was unregulated no one knew how many were out there, not even
the sellers,..and when they started to fail..they turned to the Credit
Default Swaps Market to cover their loses..another unregulated market
were no one knew how many were out there..just how much risk the sellers
were expose to..
It turn out the seller of both markets had leveraged their risk at 30 to
40 times their available cash and liquid assets..Was GWBush and Paulson
suppose to just let 43% of the American Economy crash...What is scary
now is that the top 5 American banks now control 56% of the American
economy, and the GOP is not pushing to put the Glass-steagall Act back
in place...The GOP, and Mitt Romney, and Paul Ryan, are all pushing for
more deregulation of Wall Street ...
IN 1999 the CEO of Citigroup pushed hard for the repeal of the
Glass-Steagall Act a law that required the banks and investment firms to
keep peoples personal investments separate from the bank's risky
investment side...But Citigroup wanted that money to gamble with..and so
did the big Wall Street Banks..They said Trust US ..
Note the banks wanted our retirement money to use for risky investments
and when they won they kept the cash..and when they lost money like in
2007..they had to be bailed out, because they were too big to fail...
Well now the former CEO of Citigroup is pushing for the return of the
Glass-Steagall Act and even the breakup of the top 5 American
banks..Deregulation does not work ..
Not just people, but corporations can become dependent on the
And Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan want to let the Wall Street fat cats that
make their money off Capital Gains and Dividend have a Zero tax
rate...billions in income tax free..no money for America's roads,
interstate, bridges, or our military and veterans benefits...That is
just crazy..In the last 10 years the only group that has seen a real
increase in their wealth is the top 1%...

You sound like you're trying to be a free thinker. If you'll just take a look in the mirror you'll see the face of a spineless Marxist wallowing in class warfare. Your mentor, Barack Hussein Obama is going down in flames in November. His putrid stench will be fumigated from Washington.

Mittens and his campaign won't comment on this story;
"Being told to train his replacement was humiliating and surreal, but Tom Gaulrapp said the worst part was when the plant’s US flag was taken down before the Chinese engineers arrived.
Gaulrapp decided it was time to take a stand against outsourcing and the man he blames for the loss of his job: Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney, who founded the private equity firm that owns the Freeport, Illinois auto parts plant.
Romney’s ties to Bain Capital have burdened the Republican nominee’s hopes of winning the November 6 election as Democrats unfavorably paint him as a corporate raider who pioneered the outsourcing of US jobs to countries with lower labor costs."
Bain scumbags - with Romney and his "blind trust" benefiting from more outsourced jobs to china!

Calling it a "poorly conceived and irresponsible piece of legislation, pure and simple," President Obama made a public pledge to voters Tuesday that, if reelected, he would fight to repeal the recently upheld Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
In an address to the nation broadcast live from the White House, the president promised voters in sharp, forceful terms that the very first act of his second term would be to "strike down this unjust and unconstitutional law," which he said would place "an unacceptable burden on hardworking Americans."
"Citizens going to the polls in November should know that if they reelect me, they will not have to face the consequences of this bloated, oppressive act," said Obama, who called the legislation a "906-page monstrosity." "This law isn't merely an attack on our current health care system. It's an attack on our core values and what it means to be an American. And mark my words, an Obama administration will support those values, not destroy them."
"Frankly, this toxic plan is just another needless tax to pay—nothing more, nothing less," Obama continued. "It's harmful and it's wrong and I won't stand for it."
Blasting members of Congress for "voting to vastly overstep government authority," Obama said that under his leadership the federal government would not "reach into the pockets of honest taxpayers" to pay for the extension of health care benefits enacted by the legislation.
Obama added that if the plan goes into effect, it is "100 percent guaranteed" to bankrupt the United States within 10 years.
Proponents of the health care act have yet to respond to the president's numerous criticisms of the law, which he claimed would increase insurance premiums and force every American to receive subpar medical treatment.
"I'm going to say it in plain English: I will not let Obamacare stunt job growth, drive up the cost of health care, and cripple our economy—I simply won't let it happen," the president said. "Come November, should I be reelected, it will be my great pleasure to walk into the Oval Office, take my pen in hand, and sign a big 'adios' repealing this grave threat to our country's future."
Added Obama, "That is a promise you can take to the voting booth."

The Obama administration gave stimulus funds to so many companies that outsourced jobs it is mind boggling. GM(Government Motors) itself has outsourced many jobs and is planning to outsource many more.

Obama's Biggest Lie:'I'm Fighting For The Middle Class'
Politics: The president has positioned himself as a "warrior for the middle class," fighting against a ruling class of one-percenters. But a new book says Obama is really at war with middle America.
In fact, Obama hates the American middle class and all it represents, according to "Spreading the Wealth" by Stanley Kurtz. The president is secretly scheming to destroy it where it lives: the suburbs.
Of course, we don't hear that from the campaign.
As part of his "Middle Class and the Economy" bus tour, Obama last week traveled to Iowa and visited with a middle-class family in Cedar Rapids. He sat down with the McLaughlins at their kitchen table in a one-story suburban home and exalted their "hard work" and "all the things that make up a middle-class life."
At the same time, his campaign released a TV ad championing middle-class values and casting himself as a "warrior" for the middle class.
"I believe that the way you grow the economy is from the middle out," Obama said, adding he will tax "millionaires and billionaires" to help out the struggling middle class. "I believe in fighting for the middle class."
Baloney, says Kurtz. "Re-elect him and you'll see that he is after the pocketbooks of a whole lot more than just 1% of us," he warned in the book. "His real target is America's middle class, suburbanites in particular."
Added Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics & Public Policy Center: "Many suburban voters now planning to support him will find their incomes and their children's schools the targets of his redistributive schemes in a second term. The 1% slogan is a sham. If your income is in the top 50%, Obama is after you."
Citing recent White House policy meetings with radical community organizers, Kurtz warns that Obama is saving his most jarring initiatives for a second term, when he no longer has to court the middle class.
They'll see "concerted moves to force regional tax-base sharing on the states," he said, "and federal pressure to equalize urban and suburban school funding."
Kurtz, an expert on Obama's community-organizing days, says the president is following the playbook of his philosophical mentor, Saul Alinsky.
The socialist Alinsky wrote in "Rules for Radicals" that the best way to revolutionize society is to convince the middle class you are on its side. That requires talking and dressing like that group of Americans while issuing bland slogans about "hope" and "change."
"Tactics must begin with the experience of the middle class, accepting their aversion to rudeness, vulgarity and conflict," Alinsky said. This will anesthetize middle America "prior to the social surgery to come."
"Start them off easy," he said, "don't scare them off."
Alinsky and his disciples believe the suburbs create "structural racism" and "economic segregation."
The goal is to abolish them by pushing urban poor into the suburbs through a combination of discrimination lawsuits and regulations while redistributing suburban wealth to the cities through "regional equity" programs.
Alinsky's followers believe the middle class is racist and greedy. This notion, Kurtz notes, is what drew Obama to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's church and its attacks on the "the pursuit of middleclassness."
#5137 Sep 24, 2012
Kurtz says Obama's stealth plan to abolish the suburbs includes:
• Forcing bedroom communities to build subsidized housing units under the threat of HUD lawsuits.
• Forcing regional tax-redistribution plans on the states by conditioning receipt of federal funding on such "regional equity plans," which are now being formulated under the administration's Sustainable Communities Initiative.
• Using the carrot of federal funds to usurp state and local control of schools.
• Forcing public schools to adopt politicized curricula and lower education standards, which are now being formulated under the administration's Common Core Initiative.
The president's talk about defending and helping the middle class is essentially a smoke screen. Behind the scenes, he and his Alinsky pals are scheming to redistribute the wealth of the suburban middle class.

Now let's look at big bad Bain Capital
Since inception Bain Capital has invested in or acquired hundreds of companies including such notable companies as AMC Entertainment, Aspen Education Group, Brookstone, Burger King, Burlington Coat Factory, Clear Channel Communications, Domino's Pizza, DoubleClick, Dunkin' Donuts, D&M Holdings,Guitar Center, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Sealy, The Sports Authority, Staples, Toys "R" Us, Bright Horizons Day Care, Warner Music Group and The Weather Channel.
Since 2000 the following funds have entrusted some $1.56 billion to BAIN CAPITAL:
* Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund ($2.2 million)* Indiana Public Retirement System ($39.3 million)* Iowa Public Employees’ Retirement System ($177.1 million)* The Los Angeles Fire and Police Pension System ($19.5 million)* Maryland State Retirement and Pension System ($117.5 million)* Public Employees’ Retirement System of Nevada ($20.3 million)* State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio ($767.3 million)* Pennsylvania State Employees’ Retirement System ($231.5 million)* Employees’ Retirement System of Rhode Island ($25 million)* San Diego County Employees Retirement Association ($23.5 million)* Teacher Retirement System of Texas ($122.5 million)* Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System ($15 million)
According to Infrastructure Investor, Bain Capital Ventures Fund I (launched in 2001) managed wealth for “endowments and foundations such as Columbia, Princeton and Yale universities.”
According to BuyOuts magazine and S&P Capital IQ, Bain’s other college clients have included Cornell, Emory, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Notre Dame and the University of Pittsburgh.
Preqin reports that the following schools have placed at least $424.6 million with Bain Capital between 1998 and 2008:
* Purdue University ($15.9 million)* University of California ($225.7 million)* University of Michigan ($130 million)* University of Virginia ($20 million)* University of Washington ($33 million)
Major center-left foundations and cultural establishments also have seen their prospects brighten, THANKS TO BAIN CAPITAL. According to the aforementioned sources, such Bain clients have included the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Doris Duke Foundation, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Ford Foundation, the Heinz Endowments and the Oprah Winfrey Foundation.
Bain Capital is a fantastic success story while the taxpayer owns 500,000,000 shares of GM stock. We won't break even until it gets to $53/ share
The price today is 24.40/share. That is a paper loss of slightly over 14 billion dollars of taxpayer money.

Not only untrue, but you have no facts supprting your rhetoric. Here are actual facts;
Newly installed General Motors CIO Randy Mott announced a massive three-year plan to move almost all of GM’s IT services in-house, bringing everything from data centers to software development into the fold and taking work away from outsourcing companies such as HP/EDS, IBM, Capgemini and Wipro.
The plan is to move 90 percent of the IT services work in-house, up from only 10 percent today, says Information Week.
Insourcing to this extent will force GM to go on a hiring spree for software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts, and other IT pros over the next three years, says Information Week. And the automotive maker plans to create three new software development centers in the U.S.
