Economist Paul Krugman's July 3, 2011 NYT op ed on the Corporate Cash Con being perpetrated by the global Pluto/Chiron criminal banking syndicate lays out clearly the power elite's scheme now throttling America's neck with Reagan's old 'trickle down' economics scam.
And Thom Hartmann renounced on his broadcast today (Tuesday July 5, 2011) the 'trickle down' theory of economics which didn't work then and hasn't and won't work now. Not for The Commons anyway. That'd be the rest of us who are not members of the select few (or acting as their servants.)

Hint: the Saros Series of this Solar Eclipse (1 North) repeated on August 11, 1999, the Mother of All Eclipses that Nostradamus forewarned about with its Biblical references emphasized: the mid-degrees of the Fixed Grand Cross: Oxen Point (15 Taurus), Eagle Point (15 Scorpio), Lion Point (15 Leo: see sidebar for more on this degree's impressive symbolism), and Angel Point (15 Aquarius, aka, the Center of Humanity degree - DeVore.)
That's one reason why I prefer economists like Paul Krugman and Robert Reich to take part in the public debate. They express monetary theories and their consequences with what comes across as a humane point of view, what I might call a 'For the Commons' mentality.
And without that, what has the world got besides a global herd of rough-shod riding criminals, thieves, and political operatives fronting for the plutonian power-grabbers who direct them to beggar us all?
Dismantling America is their grand scheme, long in planning, and now being implemented in a social network or marketplace near you (fraudulent Neptune now at '1 Pisces' = "A Public Market.") The US Cash Cow has been milked dry and is being sent to the lower pasture.
Why, yes! Americans can start the experiment 'America' over. Re-gearing and calibrating our country for manufacturing again is being done here and there yet it must become our modus operandi. Family, religious groups, and community institutions (food banks, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, Boys' and Girls' Clubs, and other social aids) need our support. Plus, no one can know if they'll be the one to need a leg-up one of these days, right? The way this crew is acting, that is. Covet, covet, covet!
So the way I figure it, we-the-people are in this boat together, folks, it's the ruling class who have deserted what they intend to be a sinking ship of State. Yet if they are the ones who make up The State, may they shipwreck themselves while we sail to a brighter shore in a re-commissioned tugboat we call America. If we're of-by-for ourselves, the Invisible Government of The Masses will take up the (disputed) mantle of power and put on trial or toss out the brigands and charlatans...the usurpers.
No! It is not for Republican or Democratic politicians to brazenly wear the mantle of power for their authorization to do so wilts without Our Support. The legend is that America was founded so that the mantle of power belongs in truth to we-the-people; if diverted, then the character and identity of the "United States of America" ceases to exist. What Zionist *Utopians desire to build in its place, we've already seen in part since the 1980s when the top percent of citizens began raking in larger and larger profits, while the rest finagled to get by.
Why do I squawk? Why dissent? To be American is to dissent and I do so because America is my only nag in the race. And though political partisans may be a necessary evil for a nation that practices 'politics', we don't have to accept their lack of moral standards and secretive, high-minded allegiance to whatever creeds have ensnared their fancies for greatness.
This is no game, for Machiavellian types play for keeps: success at any cost as long as it's someone else's loss. This is currently and starkly illustrated by highly placed Republicans who bet on the US economy to fail.
As for the current political theater we're being treated to by Washington politicians, presidents, and operatives, let's glance in Thomas Jefferson's direction for a little wisdom along the Common Good lines this blogging gnat prefers:
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
Amen. (Scott Walker. Corporate Welfare. Big-Bank Bailouts...)
July 4, 2011 US is 235 years young
As the US begins a new year, may the Bush Tax Cuts expire and may tax loopholes for wealthy corporate jet lovers be closed. May US corporations pay their fair share in taxes. May militarist monarchs be stopped from dismantling our state governments, raiding workers' pension funds, and further ripping into our social safety net in order to give balding corporate geniuses on a mission an unearned financial 'break' they won't spend to boost the US economy.
How clear is it that outrageously wrong 'sacrifices' are forced upon the American people by the US government every time a baby, child, or a pregnant woman goes hungry in America?
*Utopians = radical Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries (Ebertin.) We may wish to watch the disruptive path of Uranus in Aries as its separative mission becomes clearer and the quirky genius nears the end of Aries. For next up will be 00 Taurus to 1 Taurus, which is sometimes called, Hitler's Trigger degree, for he ramped up violent actions when it was triggered by a planet or two. It's his natal Sun degree indicating his life purpose or mission which his occult associates encouraged him to set up as a Quest for a new world order - to be administered under Adolf's thumb, he expected. Or, did his psychotic career mainly showcase the ego of a megalomaniac and sex fiend warped by a cruel childhood?
Which reminds me of the cruelty of US politicians forcing hunger and want upon American children, circa 2011. Why? Because wealthy bankers and their cronies desire more lucre of the filthy variety.
