Did Bankers Buy the Presidency ?

Barry, My Liege :

Your Justice Department recently dropped criminal charges against Goldman Sachs in a publicized case [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/09/goldman-sachs-justice-department_n_1762455.html?utm_hp_ref=business].

This action gives the appearance of an impropriety because Goldman Sachs is a contributor to your Presidential campaigns.

My Liege, such an appearance can create doubts about the independence of your office, regardless of facts.

We live in times where the Federal Government of the United States of America has been proven to be and is perceived as corrupt.

While you may have the opportunity to correct our drift toward oligarchy in a second term, your legacy may not reflect your actions if you allow any perceptions of impropriety to persist.

Such appearances can brand you as another corrupt politician.

That would be your legacy.

In order to create a positive image in history, your administration should be perceived as aggressively pursuing those firms and individuals who contributed to the economic collapse of 2007 and 2008.

My Liege that does not seem to be the case.

More to the point, such appearances of impropriety encourage actions by others which harm the Economic National Security of the United States.

It gives the impression that wrongdoers will not be prosecuted as long as they make sizeable campaign contributions.

And, if that is so, then why would any person take trouble to be honest when honesty is not rewarded at the highest levels ?

Remember what Jesse 'Big Daddy' Unruh said about lobbyists : "If you can't eat their food, drink their booze, screw their women and then vote against them, you have no business being up here."

My Liege, we would like to think that you are in the right place to protect us from the oligarchs.

Your faithful servant,

Ryan Favors Glass-Steagall ?

Barry, My Liege :

A report from marketwatch.com has Paul Ryan in favor of restoring Glass-Steagall.

Read it here: http://blogs.marketwatch.com/election/2012/08/13/is-ryan-really-good-for-bankers/

My bet is that he will recant that position within five days, after he will have been bought by bankers.

Your faithful servant,

UPDATE 11.30 BANKS SPECULATE IN Food, Water Shortages

Barry, My Liege :

Today's drought in the United States of America will have severe effects on food importing countries.

The resulting food shortages will result in riots and social unrest.

NOVEMBER 30, 2012 - Here's something that makes it worse for us all : banks are SPECULATING in food supplies, thereby making famine worse.

Article here : http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/11/barclays-food-speculation/

That social unrest will affect the Economic National Security of the United States negatively.

Predictions are that Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sudan, South Sudan, and Egypt will face social unrest when food prices rise.

My Liege, you may recall that the Arab Spring was created when food prices rose to the point that many families could not eat.

The State Department reported that 60 food riots were results of the recent food shortage in 2007 and 2008.

It will happen again.

This is in addition to current famine conditions in Niger, Chad, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Somalia, Zimbabwe Kenya, Djibouti and Darfur.

The long term future does not look better.

The National Intelligence Council [http://www.dni.gov/files/documents/Global%20Trends_2025%20Report.pdf] estimates that 21 countries with a combined population of 600 million are either cropland or water scarce today.

That number will INCREASE by 36 countries with a population of 1.4 billion people by 2025.

New entrants will include Burundi, Colombia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Malawi, Pakistan, and Syria.

Barry, My Liege, what are our plans to address this question?

Will we leave the poor to starve?

Or, will we beggar the United States to prevent it?

These questions require answers, My Liege.

Your faithful servant.
