What media? You mean tha newsy whorescum who sometimes forget themselves (like Brian Williams, formerly with ABC, and that Canadian fellow, Gian what's-his-face, formerly of CBC and now in jail) and continue lying once they get off the air? The very same Amerikan media owned by five corporations, themselves financed by just two major banksters which nobody seems to know who they ownership is?

So all those SEC filings I've perused over the years, all those GAO reports, and various other books and reports and filings on deferred income and hedge fund managers and hedge fund people and private equity types is all lies?????

I think not, mofo! So how's about putting up or STFU! And to those ignorant of forensic finance, the super-rich and the hedge fundsters and private equiteers routinely give themselves "loans" from their offshore monies, which means they transfer their money back themselves in not taxable form, since their so-called "interest" they pay is not only non-taxable, but is really just transferring more money offshore!

Contrary to your ignorance, there is a parliamentarian procedure (I believe it is called "mediation") which allows the Executive branch to invoke it and therefore allow for a one-vote only majority on financial legislation, as opposed to the usual two-thirds majority required. (This only applies to financial legislation.)

This was invoked many, many times during the George Weasel Bush administration, but has yet to ever be invoked during Obama's time in the White House.

Excellent points, overall, his record is the best, it is on a few individual items where he falters, i.e., voting down the food stamp legislation and then stating he had second thoughts about that vote, and not being VOCAL ENOUGH about jobs offshoring and the use of foreign visa replacement scab workers!

Sanders is very skeptical of the H-1B program, ...

Huh???? It ain't about skepticism, and if Sanders, a congressional critter, and supposedly with a law degree, still CANNOT figure out that it is AGAINST THE FRIGGING LAW!!!! American workers cannot be replaced unless it is proven that no qualified workers can be found, AND SINCE THEY ARE in the effing position to begin with, that goes against the law.

But it isn't really about progress or innovation or creation, it is about the dismantling of the economy, while extracting as much profit as possible until the sad end. With every job, so goes a piece of the GDP, and now, in dramatic comparison to the 1950s and 1960s, the bulk of the tax base of America derives from payroll taxes, which the super-rich certainly don't pay, i.e., Amerika is so very effed!

. . . only really works in the labor market we are told, since it is completely inoperative everywhere else!!!!!

And taken a bit further, with a bit more modern historical research, NAFTA was about the same thing: new regs allowing for foreign ownership of Mexican banks (within one year of the passage of NAFTA, or signing by Mexico, 90% of their banks became foreign owned), when then favor Big Agra, which speedily moves in to take over the agriculture industry, while payouts go to Mexican politicians favoring the privatizing of those farmlands occupied by Mexican subsistance farmers, who are then forced off their lands, and thus journey north to America, to continue the downward trend on wages at the lower levels, etc., etc., etc.

Not really, me thinks, since those klepto-psycho-greedheads only dwell on money and their greed.

Given that all those so-called think tanks were founded and financed by the super rich, and whenever they claim one is "liberal" --- like the Brookings Institution (where one finds the Hamilton Project, founded by Robert Rubin, to privatize EVERYTHING), nothing could be further from the truth!

Then when you consider that former psychos from various bloody dictatorial regimes are employed at these so-called think tanks, since the Wall Street-owned American gov't invested in criminal elements to overthrow their various democracies (Iran, Guatemala, Honduras, Brazil, Chile, etc., etc., etc.), and then when the psycho-crooks there fall out of power, they have favored immigration to the USA, whereby they immediately are senior fellows at these stink tanks, and that almost daily our news is provided to us by various newsy whorescum interviewing swine from these stink tanks defining what the so-called news is --- Amerika is soooo over.

While I probably don't agree with this fellow's political beliefs, I do confirm that he is on the right track, i.e., One World Bank, which owns One World Corporation and One World Financial Exchange, said One World Bank controlling the One World Currency, of course:

Oh, you mean how the NSA goes after financial intel for Wall Streeters and the ultra-rich?

Sorry, David_Hart, but you are falling for their trap, and allowing them to define everything, including the latest in bullcrap charges.

In fact, this is to redirect attention from the actual cause, which is internalization, which is the purchase of almost 100% (like around 93% to 96%) of all public stock purchases by the top banks and hedge funds from the major brokerage firms. Then they do these trades they have purchased on their own internal systesm (known as dark pools), thus they control the public trades, and they have the insider data as to the trends --- really almost complete command and control.
