Use Iceland As An Example

Surely everybody remembers the economic crisis of 2008………can you remember all the debate of whether to let the thieving banks to go bust of not?  There was also a debate on whether the CEOs of said banks should be held responsible…….how about the term “too big too fail”?

I have written about what Iceland decided to do in the past……and today it looks like their plan was far superior to any plan we had here in the states……

Maybe we should take a good long look at what Iceland did…….and learn from their example…..

This Shadow Government Agency Is Scarier Than the NSA

The internet is full on conspiracy theories of this governmental agency or that agency that is controlling our lives…….we have already seen just how involved a group like NSA is spying on us……we also have heard about these shadowy groups that are in control…..the Bilderbergs, Illuminati, Free Masons, etc, etc…….but is there really some shadowy group that we should be afraid of……a group that is always keeping us under their watchful eyes?

I found this article while doing some research and thought I would share it……what do you guys think?

Millennials Chart a Different Foreign Policy Course | The Fiscal Times

I am an old fart and that makes me what the media likes to call a “Baby Boomer” born as an aftermath of WW2……..my granddaughter was born in 2002 and that makes her a “Millennial”……and she will be this country;s future and I am so glad.

The Millennials were born between the years early 1980’s and the early 2000’s…..and a recent study has shown that they are a group that could do great things…..that is as soon as we can eliminate the old farts that still think in Cold War thoughts…..

They seem to be grasping the ideals that I have preached for 50 years….well me and a wealth of others……..maybe there is some hope for this country after all……

Racial Dog Whistles, The Confederate Flag And The Long Shadow Of The GOP’s ‘Southern Strategy’ | ThinkProgress

With all the shootings and death that has occurred in the last year something needs to be addressed…..I know many do not want to talk about such things but believe it is here and it is real…..

Racism is not disappearing……instead it is starting to run sort of rampant……it took the Nazis about 20 years for their ideals to be put into action……and today the thoughts and the desires from the 1950’s are starting to surface and at an alarming rate…….

So yeah…..we DO need to talk about it and find a way for it to disappear forever within our society…….

Who Is a ‘Terrorist’? by Justin Raimondo — Antiwar.com

Since 9/11 the mosy favored word in the MSM was been “terroists”…….they see a terrorist at every turn……I guess it is part of the propaganda campaign to legitimize all war as long it is against those damn terroists…..

But since the shooting in South Carolina there has been a move to call it an act of terrorism……there is a lot of blowback on using the term even from the FBI…..but a great question has been asked……Who is a terrorist?

A question that needs an answer……

The Pacific trade deal has all kinds of protections for businesses — but not for workers | GlobalPost

Obama’s newest fight with Congress is the trade agreement that he supports, the TPP…….we are told all about how good it will be for this country……Obama and his conservative supports are pulling out all stops to make this thing happen……..

The problem is, at least for me, that all the promises and talk has all  been said before……that time by Bubba Clinton and his abortion, NAFTA……for all the good they told us it would do just somehow did not help any body but business…..the workers were screwed….as always……the TPP will be NO different.

If this is such a superb deal for the country then why is it a secret?  Why is it not possible for us to see the agreement before it is finalized?

TPP will be nothing but a con to promote and protect business…..workers will be left at the curb…..as they always are in these “good” deals……..
