Wall Street vs Main Street

 

The fall of the stock market places a lot of futures in the hands of the uncertain.  One thing is clear, is that we live in turbulent times and nothing is for certain.  Institutions of trust and respect, banks and governments do not have the interest of shareholders or the governed at stake.  Who is to blame, and how do we fix this crisis?

 

                We are to blame, we believe the rhetoric and lies from IB to stockbrokers to so called media journalists, when the critical mass of greed, (stock market crash of 1920, 1984, dot com bust, our housing crisis) gets overheated the only end in sight is a prolong recession and depression.  We will not be able to generate a competitive workforce when you buy more than we export.  Our legacy of spending will eventually convert us to the Spainairds  and Romans of old another decrepit empire.

 

                What is our great legacy, the legacy of land stolen from Indians, and Mexicans, the legacy of a create open society, a land of immigrants and opportunity to a country at war with itself who convenietly outsources its jobs for a tidy profit for the fortunate few. 

                One thing is clear, it is honor, integrity and a rigid moral compass that will get us through this mess.  When men and women of high moral fiber live and make decisions to the benefit of the hard working people of our great society we will resurge.  When people make money the old fashion way, with local service and goods, hard work, a fair contract with their employer and community, and government takes a lot less, and people save and share with the unfortunate we will rebound from this era of greed, pornography and disinformation. 

                Government will not protect the people.  It is the job of the people to protect the people.
