For a weekend plethora of articles you may not find better than the following list if you're up for econo-crisis/financial collapse/government-and-banking fraud issues and what to do about them.
Apologies, but I couldn't refrain from tucking pithy comments in between each one...but I don't believe I've ever heisted any money from you, so perhaps you might forgive me my pithiness eventually, yes?
"Liquidate the Banks; Fire the Executives!"
By Mike Whitney
While Congress approved a mere $700 billion in emergency funding for the TARP, Geithner and Bernanke deftly sidestepped the public opposition to more bailouts and shoveled another $3.3 trillion through the back door via loans and leverage for crappy mortgage paper that will never regain its value. #

A Plea To President Obama: Don't Bankrupt America
By Sarah van Gelder
President Obama's massive giveaway to Wall Street threatens to bankrupt the federal government and undermine the agenda that got him elected. Here are some first steps needed to change course. #

The Looting of America
By Barry Grey
The New York Times on Thursday published a front-page article that provides further insight into the economic and class interests that are being served by the Obama administration's economic "recovery" policies. #
(Pluto-Chiron = plutocracy; oppression; class warfare; corporatism and any other ism you'd care to name including fascism, racism, militarism, and imperialism; disenfranchisement; primal violence, etc. America's natal Pluto-Chiron midpoint at '9 Pisces' is conjunct her natal Ceres, asteroid of nurturing and security, which worked well to some degree with plutocrats running the middle class show - and vastly enriching themselves - until the jig was up at the New Millennium...
and now everyone - even the myopic among us who can't be bothered with ugly old Politics - can see its tendrils curling around the foreclosed-upon porch steps...
Pluto and Chiron had their Great Conjunction on Dec 30, 1999 - upon US natal Ascendant (Sibly chart = ASC '12 Sag') - and were in parallel mid-August 2004.
'12Sag' is also transiting Pluto's position on the morning of 9.11 (opposite Saturn on US Descendant.) And Dick Cheney's Secondary Progressed Pluto-Chiron midpoint was sitting upon his Progr'd MC (The Goal) on the morning of 9.11.01 - but you really must view his Progr'd chart for 9.11.01 to appreciate its aptness. -jc) Thanks for the heads-up, Anonymous - Cheney link should be de-typo'd now.
Revive Lincoln's Monetary Policy
By Ellen Brown
The bankers had Lincoln's government over a barrel, just as Wall Street has Congress in its vice-like grip today. #
(So Lincoln monkeyed with the central banking system's gravy train and we know where it led our 16th president one dark night: Ford's Theater and a death bed. -jc)
Howard Zinn on Class in America: Video Interview
"In the United States we are really brought up to think there's only really one class. That is, the idea of class conflict, class struggle, that is foreign to American culture." says Zinn. "We're brought up to think that we're part of one big happy family," according to Zinn this is simply a perpetuated lie that contradicts the reality that a large percentage of the population doesn't fit in to this happy family model. #
(Isn't that what governments are for - perpetuating lies? Which doesn't make it right. It makes it perhaps more wrong because their lies and frauds adversely affect - and rob - millions of people. But they think they're above all that lower class 'following laws' nonsense! -jc)
Okay, I'll hush for now about all this ugliness. It IS ugly, I agree.
Yet tomorrow morning is a new day and I shall leap up jubilantly because, as I hope you already know...He is risen!
