ROLLING STONE, MATT TAIBBI, GOLDMAN SACHS, READ IT!
There are a number of people writing about the financial crisis that created the economic crisis that affected nearly everyone, and this is a good thing. But, we need bloggers from all over the country to set the Internet a buzz. The TV news shows cover what they think brings them the highest ratings, and that is why the death of Michael Jackson is on MSNBC, "the place for politics" they say. Newspapers need advertisers to stay in business, and magazines are about the only thing left other than bloggers and 6 degrees of separation to spread the word. We need to spread the word about the fraud that was perpetrated on the American people by Wall Street. We know they did not do this by themselves. Wall Street did this with the help of Congress and the rest of Washington. We need to get a few million people knowledgeable enough to put pressure on our government to do the right thing. A small, very small number of people brought the financial crisis about and our Federal Government failed to protect the American people. Protecting the American people must mean more than protecting them from foreign or domestic terrorists. Protecting against the financial and economic crisis is just as important as protecting against a foreign invader. In my opinion, there are a number of people that should be brought to trial for economic treason or financial terrorism. What a few did to so many should never have happened, it is that simple.
Read the article in the ROLLING STONE magazine of July 9 - 23, 2009 by Matt Taibbi titled THE GREAT AMERICAN BUBBLE MACHINE: THE BAILOUT - HOW GOLDMAN SACHS RUNS WASHINGTON. Tell your friends to read this article, and get as many people interested in why we Americans suffered the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
I have great hopes for the Internet, as I know the American people do not want a repeat of this economic crisis again.
