Wall Street And DC Greed At The Core Of Our National Crisis, Obama Plans To Spread Our Wealth Globally!

There are many kinds of greed in this world. On Wall Street we can glimpse the “hoarding of treasure” greed, the greed to pull in as much money as fast as possible and then waste the rest of your life as the uber consumer showing off your trinkets and comparing them to the trinkets of others.

There is also ideological greed, a need to be the answer to all humanity’s problems of the day. For some reason people cannot just look at problems and face the myriad of gears and interconnections and trip wires that make them nagging problems in the first place. Instead the dumb down the situation and see simple minded solutions (trust me, as an engineer with a deep scientific background I see the human trait all day, every day). Once the obvious and clear solution has been created in the mind, all who stand in the way of our pending hero are simply part of the problem, or agents of evil.

This is how liberal ideological greed met up with Wall Street greed and created CRA, and later the loosing of lending requirements on mortgages and the current financial debacle. The Wall Street types took over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and with the support of liberal democrats in Congress who thought if you give a person a home they will take care of it (instead of earning it), people in Fannie and Freddie went on a dangerous lending spree – all the time lining their pockets with mortgage money based on how many bad mortgages they could sign up.

Democrat and Obama allies Raines and Johnson turned Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the ACORN of lending institutions. They raked in billions of dollars, recklessly invested that money in people who had no idea what they were getting into, and  walked away millionaires. This is what happens when liberal ideological greed meets Wall Street greed.

And America is waking up to the realization that we don’t need to change America, we need to fix DC to remove the Wall Street greed from the equation of government. We don’t need to ACORN-ize our energy sector (as Maxine Waters threatened to do recently) or our Health Care system.

But that is what is going to happen if the liberals get their hands on all three centers of government. I think America is smart enough to play forward the worst case scenario with Obama and Co. And I think they got a clear glimpse of that when Obama finally admitted he wanted to share our wealth (aka hard earned money) with the less fortunate. Presumably to include a sea of illegal workers who already tap into every public service in this country while avoiding the full responsibilities.

Michael Barone summed the election up well this morning in one paragraph:

Can Joe Wurzelbacher, Joe the Plumber from Ohio, change the course of this campaign? That’s one question that was raised at the third presidential debate. Wurzelbacher is the man who, in a moment caught on YouTube, confronts Barack Obama on his plan to raise taxes on people like him. Obama, sotto voce, replies that he wants to “spread the wealth around.” In the third consecutive week in which the headlines of the financial crisis have prompted both candidates to denounce “Wall Street greed,” the image of those whom Obama would tax higher was suddenly not an investment banker but a plumber.

To be fair it is not Joe who has to do anything, it is America. We all have learned how the nexus of Wall Street and DC conspired to destroy around 40% of this nation’s wealth in a couple of weeks time. Liberal policies enacted with gusto by the money handlers who became rich – and who donated some of that ‘wealth’ to politicians and invested in the DC Political Industrial Complex. Obama plans to FURTHER cripple this economy by spreading our wealth. His liberal allies want government take over of our energy and health care private sectors. They want control of our information flow and free speech.

Obama needs America’s resources because, contrary to what you may think, he is not going to be spreading our wealth inside our borders – he has different plans for our money folks:

Barack Obama vows to ‘change the world’
Barack Obama has vowed that he will “change the world” even as he urged his supporters to guard against complacency.

Obama has a lot of foreign policy plans to feed the poor and raise them up. To do that he needs to surrender our wars and cut back the military. But even that is not enough to ‘change the world’. He will be taxing our ‘greedy’ companies to make retributions to all those we have wronged. He is as naive as he is stupid.

The only thing worse than Wall Street Greed is DC greed. The latter comes with the force of law and the ability to force the people to act. At least in the free market the choice is left to the consumer how and where to spend their money. Do not think DC greed is the lesser of two evils – it has never been.  And never trust a politician with a God-complex.

    He’s serious. I have heard him say he would ‘change the world’ at least 3 times. This means several things to me. As CiC, I expect him to put our military in places they should not be. What’s to stop him if they control all three? He will ruin our military and I never hear a word said on the subject. Must be one of those taboo subjects for The One’s world. Not a word at the debates.

    Reparations. This is what’s coming. Farrakhan is practically jumping for glee. Good ole Rev Wright and his ‘whitey’ hatred who says he is Christian but his idol is Farrakhan. Somebody please look at that silent man behind the curtain……..Rep Conyers.

    And finally, our world tax that is called Global Warming.

    If Barrack Hussein Obama is elected, he will change the world. Damn shame only Americans will be paying the bill.

    Obama, the Messiah or Anti Christ, depending on your view of him, promised to “spend $1 trillion to bring Africa out of poverty,”
    during the primary. I heard him say it on Fox News. He also said recently that “this is a rich country.” and everyone should have affordable housing, health care, etc, and “this country can afford to see that every last American has it. ”

    Apparently it has not sunk into his thick skull that this country is bankrupct. Bill Clinton arranged for the transfer of our manufacturing base to China when he gave China “Most Favored Nation” status and allowed them to under mine our manufacturers by dumping cheap slave labor made goods on our market. It took a while before our factories decided they had to move to China to compete, and now the loss of our manufacturing base is being blamed on George Bush. That deal was sealed before Bush took office.

    The saddest part is that so many Americans will believe anything they are told, and will turn to the people who got us into this mess to get us out by doing more of the same and getting us in deeper and deeper.

    Time to hit the RESET buttton.

    Yes they are sheep but very few are telling the truth in the media.

    WE should educate them first.
