Yesterday on Thom Hartmann, I saw a hypnotizing phone interview with R.D. Wolff author of Capitalism Hits Fan. Information was unveiled about things I had not fully realized. For instance:
In the 70’s, when wages began to stagnate and American workers were forced into a dysfunctional spiral of borrowing and debt that ultimately exploded in the mortgage meltdown. Click This Link http://www.rdwolff.com/content/capitalism-hits-fan-movie
Although, lucky for me, I escaped the inevitable mortgage meltdown but all the other negatives that had been happening to the American Worker, myself and my family felt.
The debt trap, 2 incomes and still unable to make ends meet, the rising cost of health insurance, the elimination of safety nets, the list goes on and on. We the middle-class have been pinched and pulled in every direction by the wealthy one percent power that had (and still has) taken hold of our capitalistic system. It’s been too long hidden from the collective psyche of the We who represent the middle and the bottom on the economic ladder. Thanks to people like Professor Richard Wolff, these clandestine maneuverings of the American Soul has been brought out of its darkness and exposed to light. One should never forget that knowledge is power and wisdom is strength. I hope we will be able to start a reversal in the way we were led (brainwashed) to THINK. I hope there is still time and the generations of We still to come will have a chance at the GOOD OLE AMERICAN DREAM. But forgive me, I am doubtful. thinkingblue
PS:On this subject:
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is advising the White House NOT to put Elizabeth Warren in charge of the Consumer Financial Protection
Bureau — a watchdog agency she invented and is most qualified to lead.
Can you sign our urgent petition to the President?
PETITION TO PRESIDENT OBAMA: Elizabeth Warren has proven that she is willing to stand up to Wall Street on behalf of consumers and is the logical choice to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Tim Geithner is a longtime Wall Street insider, and if he’s recommending against Elizabeth Warren that’s all the more reason to appoint her.
