    Kyle tells you everything you need to know but haven’t yet learned about the bailout the Senate just passed 96-0. The one bright spot is Bernie Sanders got 100% unemployment compensation for everybody who makes up to $75,000 a year. Full pay, guaranteed. The rest of it?

    Merde. This is why political revolution alone will not work in this country. It’s going to take at least a general strike. That’s how corrupt our government is. That’s how dead our democracy is. Kyle doesn’t talk about that part, but that’s what I see. Great video, 17:36 and well worth your time, I believe.

    Hi ob,

    Yep – what took 9 months to accomplish in 2008 and 2009 has been achieved in merely 1 week.

    The Oligarchs, Corporations and Banks must be proud as they have managed to decimate the 99% for generations in a matter of days.

    America is Dead – Long live America!

      @thouartthat And they will keep pushing it until the lower 90% push back. They are convinced that a revolution won’t happen because it can’t happen here. Whenever a ruling class thinks this, eventually there is a revolution, or at least a strong revolt that leads to substantive reform.

      I think they’ll get away with it for now, but I don’t know if they will, or if they do, what it will take to trigger a real uprising. It will be another shock of some sort, quite likely from out of the blue. When revolutions happen, there are usually several such things in quick succession. The military rank-and-file and opportunistic officers often play major roles, for good or for ill depending on all sorts of stuff unique to each individual country’s situation.

      Aren’t I full of good cheer tonite? Sweet dreams.

        Hi ob,

        Agreed on all points and particulars.  At least we know exactly where we stand should we choose to act.
