Are We Truly Cognizant About Who Defeated Single Payer/Public Option And Why? ("Beware of Darkness"!)

"The stock exchange is the only thing holding back the borders!" And the defrauding of the American people, but that's just for starters. Len Hart, the Existentialist Cowboy does us proud with his dissection of exactly what has brought us to this pretty pass. (Emphasis marks added - Ed.)

Prof. (David Ray) Griffin may or may not share my conviction with regard to the probable cause to indict high level members of Bush's administration . . . his new book most certainly strikes deep into a conspiracy to defraud the American people even as it waged treasonous war against it. Therefore, we should not be surprised that the government of the United States is 'pimped out' to huge multi-national corporations and foreign nations who take a proprietary interest in it. Why would they not?

They own it; they own us; they own you, having bought the US and with it the awesome power of the Military/Industrial Complex. While the Praetorian Guard auctioned off the Roman Empire to one Didius Julianus the government of the US has since perfected, 'improved' upon Julianus' one-time sale. The US government is an on-going auction in which the US is routinely 'pimped' on 'K-street, sold to the highest bidders the services of Congress, the White House and even the US Supreme Court.

Did you hear that a shoe was thrown at the head of the International Monetary Fund (about time!)? No? Too bad about that mainstream media non-reporting.

I saw the movie Capitalism: A Love Story yesterday due to the largesse of one of my local supporters and was totally captivated by the courage of Michael Moore. He may have missed what I had hoped (previous to seeing it) might be a good opportunity to explain clearly what happened to our annihilated 401K/pension/investment(s) in last year's fraudulent run on Wall Street's institutions, but I've got to admit that when he wraps several of the buildings on Wall Street with the bright yellow "Crime Tape" you see in gritty neorealist TV shows at the movie's end, he wins the hearts (and the attention) of his audience for good.

Some tidbits follow (to whet your appetite - as if you really needed some urging to go).

Elizabeth Warren, the Congressional Oversight Officer, has to concede when asked by Michael "Where's our money?" that she doesn't know.

Representative Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) says it was "almost like an intelligence operation."

No. Not "almost."

Filmmaker Michael Moore talked with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Tuesday evening about the failure of the healthcare reform bill’s public option to pass, twice, in the US Senate yesterday. Moore asked where is the Democrats spine in the healthcare reform debate?

Moore has long been invovled in the debate over public health care, and in 2007, he premiered a documentary, Sicko, which compared the for-profit, non-universal U.S. system with the non-profit universal health care systems of several other nations.

“Some of the Democrats who voted ‘nay’ today said they did because they knew a bill with the public option wouldn’t pass, and getting some bill is better than no bill,” CNN’s Anderson Cooper remarked. “Even Social Security, when it was first passed, it was nothing compared to what it ultimately became.”

“That’s correct,” Moore, “but I can’t stand listening to whiny Democrats, saying, “Well, we shouldn’t even do it because it won’t pass anyways.”

“That’s not how Republicans think,” he continued. “You know, you gotta admire Republicans, they have the courage of their convictions. They just put it right out there. When they want to do something they just do it. They don’t go, ‘I don’t know if we should invade Iraq, people might not like that.’ They don’t care. They just go ahead and do it.”

“What is wrong with our side of the aisle? Where is the spine? Where is the courage?” he asked. “‘Oh, they might filibuster.’ Really? Let ‘em filibuster. Let them read from cookbooks for twenty-four days. I’d like to see that. I’d like to see what the American people would do while they watched the Republicans read from cookbooks for twenty-four days reading from cookbooks filibustering something that should be a human right. The right to see a doctor when you get sick and not have to worry about paying for it.”

Cooper then asked if Moore thought Obama was spineless.

You're soooooooooo right.

And "Thank you, sir!"

You'll notice I'm not afraid of much of anything. They've already taken everything from me.

My job. My housing. My family support.

Again,
