How to bring down the System-I’m mad and won’t take it any longer…..
by Bruce Krasting
There are a lot of angry people out there. I see it every day in my writing. All you have to do is look at the comments at a site like Zero Hedge to realize that fact. To some extent you saw this in the last election. Those who vote (less than half the population) sent a message and as a result there has been a significant change in the political landscape.
But what do the voters get for sending the message? A slap in the face. A few weeks later we get a monster tax break for high end earners, a roll over of the tax treatment for hedge fund mangers (just obscene), another $120 billion “stimulus” that won’t do a damn thing but add to the debt and an extension of unemployment payment for yet another year (now three years!)
If you pay bills (who doesn’t) you know that all banks, credit card companies, utilities, insurance companies and all the others are just nickel and diming us to death. Every month I am nicked for some damn thing or the other. I think the FinReg rules that were supposed to protect the average Jane or Joe actually just codified what the bastards could charge. As a result we get hit with new fees, charges and higher costs.
The very frustrating part of all this is that there is not a thing you can do about it. Go write you congressperson, you’re lucky to get a form response. Get on the phone to your CC provider and bitch over a $25 late charge on a $15 balance? Good luck.
