In your Face: From Democracy to Plutarchy

By: admin
Published: January 22nd, 2011

Many Americans think they live within a Democracy, which favors the freedom of the citizens of the state. Every 2-4 years they line up and elect people who they think will represent them in DC. Well it is time to wake up and smell the coffee… The elected Representatives turned to be whores a long time ago and now they bluntly represent not us, but the lobbyist, who decide what is good or bad for you and always as it turns out to be in the good or better interest for them…

Obama names GE’s Immelt to lead fresh push on jobs

U.S. President Barack Obama, in another shift toward the political center, named General Electric Co. (GE.N) Chief Executive Jeffrey Immelt on Friday as a top outside economic adviser to help lift hiring.

This guy Immelt a day before was appointed as economic advisor stated the following…

Column: China to replace U.S. as top economic power says GE CEO

“I came to GE in 1982,” Mr. Immelt told me this week in Washington. “For the first 25 years, until the bubble crashed in 2007, the American consumer was the definitive driver of the global economy.”

But Mr. Immelt said the future will be different. For the next 25 years, he said, the American consumer “is not going to be the engine of global growth. It is going to be the billion people joining the middle class in Asia, it is going to be what the resource-rich countries do with their newfound wealth of high oil prices. That’s the game.”

That’s the guy that is supposed to spur hiring in America?  And how good is he as a CEO since his company was bailed out by the taxpayers with TARP money?

General Electric, the world’s largest industrial company, has quietly become the biggest beneficiary of one of the government’s key rescue programs for banks.

Obama bailed out GE, now they will return the favor by bailing out Obama in the presidential  race in 2012

Do you really think all those channels will be objective and fair towards the presidential candidates that will be running against Obama in 2012?

And anyway what is the best way to create jobs according to Obama….more spending

Obama to Push New Spending

President Barack Obama will call for new government spending on infrastructure, education and research in his State of the Union address Tuesday…

Nope that is not a headline form 2009. It is from 2011.

You know what Einstein said about doing the same thing over and over again and hoping to achieve different results…. it is insanity…

    The fact that most Americans still believe they live under a democracy indicates that they don’t deserve to live live under one. Remember, the Plutarchy/Corporatocracy didn’t usurp our freedom, it was given to them freely via ignorance and laziness.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. But we have been deceived by the media extensively, and the military industrial complex’s coup de tat with the Kennedy assassination. This was a major turning point in the subjugation of America. Oh, how I miss my country…..
