Rich enough to ruin us

At Bill Moyers’ review of the economy, Cuyahoga County treasurer Jim Rokakis said:

“Back in the old days when there was no sheriff in town, people would rob the banks. Well, here we are in the modern day era, and there’s no sheriff in town. The banks were robbing the people…

I learned a hard lesson: I learned that the Fed really is there to protect banks, and not to protect the consumers.”

Moyers’ contest is to bring us to our senses, and he’s not afraid to say we’re dimwits.

We can have grand days ahead I think while we throw out the libertine, stop usury, build our communities and restore liberty.

One of our first tasks is to put a wallop on our current class of politicians and the brigands both on Wall Street and downtown. What’s so difficult?
