WallStreet hacksters

The Wall Street protests are a defining moment. People realize that buy-low-sell-high Wall Street is a Ponzi scam that pumps money out of the lives of the middle and working class and into the pockets of those who own the GOP and the best Republican politicians that money can buy.

Long past is the economic era in which corporate stock was owned to gain dividends from the real production of goods and services. Today, Wall Street "instruments" are nothing more than chips in a house-always-wins game of moneychanger financism that cannot be stimulated back to life. It is a cancerous game of greed that is eating away the American Dream.

Regardless of the economic bill of goods that supposed "experts" keep trying to sell to the public, young and old Americans know that this economy is not getting better; it is getting sicker and sicker.

It is time for the nation to go to work and put people to work building the new infrastructure that empowers all Americans with their own individual free enterprise.

In pursuit of this purpose, the nation needs to go totally electric with an advanced power grid that accommodates the dispersed generation of so much wind-turbine, thermal well, solar converter, and surf-sea produced power that it can be licensed for free individual use, and also electrify a national system of low-cost fare-and-laden rail. This will end the rationing of opportunity of the moneychangers that occupy the temples of government and end the nation's indenture to international oil empires.
