“Who do you think pays the taxes?” said one longtime money manager. “Financial services are one of the last things we do in this country and do it well. Let’s embrace it. If you want to keep having jobs outsourced, keep attacking financial services. This is just disgruntled people.”
He added that he was disappointed that members of Congress from New York, especially Senator Charles E. Schumer and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, had not come out swinging for an industry that donates heavily to their campaigns. “They need to understand who their constituency is,” he said.
So, there you have it in a nutshell: Banksters and other Wall Street big shots think they are doing a great job, and they are feeling short changed by politicians that they bought.
There is a global uprising going on. Maybe all the banksters around the world should be rounded up and cooked into stews for the hungry people. When you think of past revolutions, for good or bad, they usually had to do away with a certain class of people:Here are 3 examples:
The French revolution had to guillotine droves of aristocrats.
Stalin eliminated the the Kulaks.
Mao, as one of his first acts after assuming power, was to order 10 million Mandarins marched into the street and executed.
Whether or not you agree with the philosophies behind these revolutions, you must admit that they were effective. Hell, China is still rocking and rolling.
Now, as anyone who reads this blog knows, the Unknown Playwright is nonviolent and believes a nonviolent revolution is the best way.
However, is cooking violence? Give the banksters a couple of strong sleeping pills each and put them into big stew pots like something out of cartoons -- can slow cooking ever be considered violent? Add onions, celery, carrots and seasonings to taste. They won't feel a thing as they peacefully transition from sleep to food.
Here's what global banksters currently do:
Banksters fund both sides in wars, at a high interest rate.
Banksters keep the price of gasoline artificially high by manipulating trading prices on Wall Street. They have nothing to do with the actual production of oil but make billions.
Some banksters spend all day looking for ways to eliminate well-paying jobs for anyone besides other banksters.
Banksters create ways to separate the 99% from their money, and from the ability to make money..
Banksters undermine democracy by buying elected officials from the President of the United States on down.
Banksters cheat at every turn (think about the mortgage evictions and the phony robo signings, which the government has done nothing to punish the banksters for, even though they put millions out of their homes illegally.)
Okay, all that said, and being unsophisticated, the Unknown Playwright can only think of one thing -- Bankster Stew.
Think about it. Instead of another global Great Depression, we could have a Great Cookout. Mmmmmnnn.
