GOOD – A bail-In For America!

A Lesson From Greece…

Now that American bankers and the darlings of  Wall Street are wallowingmoney-1078267_640 in wealth again, maybe it is time they shared in the debt we and our children have been given by our great government bail out.   Here is a great story from “Good.” Donald Trump you should read this! A Lesson from Greece:  Time for an American Bail-In by Tim Fernholz

Because I feel this story is so important, I have added here a copy of  some of the text from the above web site in case it becomes inaccessible. Note though published several years ago, it is still incredibly relevant!


The Government is Finally Arresting Wall Street Bankers…For Losing Wall Street’s Money

Ed Freeman, A Real Hero….. and there are more!

You look up to see a Huey coming in. But.. It doesn’t seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it.Captian Ed Freeman_vietnam_freemanEW
Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you. He’s not MedEvac so it’s not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway. Even after the MedEvacs were ordered not to come. He’s coming anyway. And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety. And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times!! Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm.He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey. Medal of Honor Recipient, Captain Ed Freeman, United States Air Force, died last Wednesday at the age of 70, in Boise, Idaho May God Bless and Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn’t hear about this hero’s passing, but we’ve sure seen a whole bunch about The gov. shut down and Hillary running for president in 2016 (Whoopee!) and the bickering of congress over Health & OBAMA-CARE! BUT ZERO ABOUT THE PASSING OF  Medal of Honor Winner, Captain Ed Freeman Shame on the media !!!

Ed risked his life because he loved his countrymen, which means all of little people who he was fighting for and with.  He loved his buddies out on the battle field and his fellow Americans at home. After all, back then many of us believed we were there to stop communism and the domino effect. The new issue we are told to fight for today is Islamic terrorism and to be sure there is some reality to this.

But who is here to save us now?   Dwight Eisenhower warned us “beware the military industrial complex.”  What did he mean? There are lots of interpretations.  In my opinion, he was warning us that our country was about to get taken away from us not by foreigners but by those Americans (and their corporations) who were gathering too much power.  He was concerned that big corporations would control government and with that the military.  If this happened we, the little people, would be beaten and enslaved without we corporationsfiring a shot!

Look around you!  Our country is becoming a wasteland of struggling indebted slaves, like you!  You are one of those slaves who will pay debts to the Chinese until you die and leave this debt to your children.  Does this not tell you something?  Does it not tell you something when the corporate CEO’s of  the Transnational corporations, we have feared since the 60’s,  earn billions of dollars in “stock options” on top of the hundred million dollar salaries they earn?  At the same time you are concerned that you may need a welfare check to pay for food!   Does this not tell you something when the transnationals take away your jobs,  put you on welfare and then ask you to join the military and possibly die to fight for their right to cheap labor and other resources in a foreign country?  They want you or your children to die for their option to move their corporation to a foreign country.  Then they will use this opportunity to replace your job and your children’s by manufacturing there!

Remember the Feudal era where the king owned the land and the peasants and army died to keep him wealthy?  Well this is what we have become.  This is what they call an Oligarchy,  a system where all the power rests in the hands of a small number of vastly wealthy people,  the top 1% perhaps.  You (we) become their slaves by means of financial indebtedness and military servitude for causes that are not, for the most part, an attack on America.  I’m not denying 911,  but Iraq did not do it!

We need a hero!   It will not be X-men,  It will not be Superman,  It will not be anyone magically coming from the Matrix.  It can only come from one place, from our nation’s remaining Hero’s,  our military.   Those who have taken over our government,  those who have enslaved us,  those on “Wall Street”  who make a mockery of free enterprise each day and helped create our financial disaster are currently and comfortably empowered by the Military of the USA.  If they say shoot, you will be dead. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you protest too loudly Washington how has the “new military”  called Homeland Security, why? Maybe they realize the US Military is not their trained dog!  Maybe they realize, commanding officers, like Eisenhower,  still exist.  Maybe they realize that the US Military is a proud arm of the people of America and not a servant to bankers, CEOs and corrupt Congressmen!   Yes the corrupt congressmen have Drones in the sky!  There can be no insurrection by the people.  So make no mistake as much as I love the movie V For Vendetta,  I am not advocating you march on Washington with your pea shooters.

But what if the military still has hero’s like Ed Freeman, men who refuse orders to not rescue Americans?   What if our military could actually refuse an order from the Oligarchy that has conquered America?  What if we refuse to fight in Iraq for oil so that American oil companies can have oil to sell to foreign nations (they don’t bring it home to lower oil prices…. did you notice?).   What if  they rounded up congress and put them in a Federal Penitentiary, for life,  and we actually elected new officials who had short terms in office and no lifetime career opportunities?  After all serving in congress was to be a service not a lifetime job!   What if we told the CEO’s to fight their own wars,  higher their own armies and die trying,  or move their corporations home and pay the price of treason for bribing congressmen?   What if we made it TREASON to bribe a congressman with a PAC or other political payoff as the CEO’s have been doing to enslave you? What if the bankers and Wall Street magic men that were kept alive after the 2008 “crash”  with billions of dollars of “gifts”  putting you into debt, were put in the same penitentiary?  What would it be like?

We might have an honest system that our forefathers dreamed of and hoped to have founded.  We would be free from enslavement by foreign debt created by the crooks we call congressmen.  We and our children would have opportunities and a future.   Are there Ed Freeman’s who can dwight-eisenhower-q-1040cs071312see when American’s are bleeding to death and need to be rescued?  Are there Ed Freeman’s who are high enough up on rank to do something unimaginable and take back America from the Tyrants who now own America?   I believe there are. The question is will they? I certainly will not tell them to do so.  I would never dream of it!  But what if they see the world as I do?  What if they see the world as most of us do? What if our military cared about each and every American as Ed Freeman cared about his buddies. Are we not all in this together?

Is there evidence for such a  call to action?  Perhaps I am just missing how well we are about to do economically.  Perhaps I am missing the recovery that the news-media is talking about?  After all I am just one small person like you.   But, there is no harm in your reading more and thinking more.   Here is another opinion worth seeing…… Click Here.
