  •  The bastards took all the money (7+ / 0-)

    and they're hoarding it. That's all I care about. To me everything else is a distraction. You got no money, you got no freedom. I'm a single issue, simple minded kind of guy.

    We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.

    •  The NSA and the Federal Reserve could do something (0+ / 0-)

      … about "the bastards taking all the money and hoarding it." But they don't.

      There's a tendency for many Democrats to act as if anyone who criticizes the NSA or the FED is a (Ron/Rand Paul) Libertarian crackpot.

      Why, actually? How good a job has the FED done at, for example, maintaining full employment, which was one of its original reasons for existing? The FED in its present form obviously isn't serving the 99%; it just seems to be helping the 1% loot the country. Why do Democrats automatically defend it?

      I tossed out some ideas about what role NSA-type technology could have played in preventing financial meltdowns and banking fraud in this comment the other day:

      The Dutch kids' chorus Kinderen voor Kinderen wishes all the world's children freedom from hunger, ignorance, and war.
