That sounds great! We should ALL vote Green.
I had to stop about ten minutes in.
To do what she wants would require the abject disposal of the remaining remnants U.S. Constitution.
I can get all of this Left wing voodoo from Obama.
I do however have some questions.
She mentions all of the new low paying jobs. This is nothing new. My question is who created the economy that breeds these jobs?
Were we not warned of this a couple of decades ago?Giant Sucking Sound - Ross Perot 1992 Presidential Debate.flv
She blames Wall St. and greed for our problems. To me she comes off as an anti-capitalist. If that's the case what would she prefer? It sounds like she would like more of what we currently have. Forced income redistribution only at a higher level.
Well let me tell ya, it takes a high mind and lot's of dough to think that way! Or, you're just angry and disappointed that someone just might be successful and have more than you do.
Well, to me jealousy is just as bad as greed, and riping apart a Country and it's economy is no way to level the playing field it is just a petty way to ensure equal misery!
Why not fix the currency and give ALL the opportunity for prosperity?
Why not adhere to the Constitution and have just and proper "weights and measures" and a medium of exchange that is equal to all?
She prattles on about Austerity Measures being implemented here in the U.S..
We are deficit spending like the house is on fire and only cash from the Federal Reserve money hose will put out the fire!
This Nation is hemorrhaging cash and she wants to spend MORE!
The Green New Deal? What the hell is that?
We have had the New Deal, The New New Deal, and now she proposes the Green New Deal?
They are all "tax and spend" your way to prosperity ponzi schemes!
She has the audacity to invoke the "programs" of the 30's like they were some magic bullet that "fixed" the economy.
All they did was make a Depression a really GREAT ONE and centralize even more authority in the Federal Government.
What she leaves out is the fact that many Corporations and individuals did very well in the peak of the Depression thanks to free market CAPITALISM that did an end run around the efforts of the government to strangle the economy.
Cheap and easy money inflated the bubble of the late twenties and when it popped and the interest rates went up minimal percentage points it wiped people out by the thousands. That is EXACTLY what the Fed is doing today with QE1, and 2, and now 3.
Read this text given in testimony to our Congress in 1934.Recently in one of our States, 60,000 dwelling houses and farms were brought under the hammer in a single day. 71,000 houses and farms in Oakland County, Michigan, were sold and their erstwhile owners dispossessed. The people who have thus been driven out are the wastage of the Fed. They are the victims of the Fed. Their children are the new slaves of the auction blocks in the revival of the institution of human slavery.
The Fed has said it will "buy" 40 BILLION of junk balance sheet crap from banks a month for the unseen future. Great, where does the Fed get it's money? From magical money fairies that poop green pieces of paper?
She uses words like New Deal and Green Emergency plans, and Sustainability.
Well, I know what the New Deal did, I know what the New, New Deal did.
I am well aware of what the new crowd of "Sustainability" people are about. And, I am well aware of what "Emergencies" named by the government cost in both cash and freedom.
No Thanks, we have enough of that already, and Obama can dish out more than enough in the future.
This is nothing but more of the same with a different face.
