47. Despite the celebratory messages from the White House and MSM....

....celebrating and catapulting the "Economic Recovery" meme,
ONLY the 1% has recovered.
The rest of us have fallen even further behind,
and the rate of the Working Class Economic Tailspin is INCREASING.
All "they" need now is One More Ring to Bind Them (The TPP "NAFTA on Steroids).


The 25 year plan is almost complete,
and has worked beautifully as designed.

*UNIONS have been destroyed

*Wages and Benefits are in a Race to the Bottom

*The Safety Net is in tatters and being quickly defunded,
and BOTH parties get to blame "The Sequester" and claim its NOT their fault.

The Sequester was a brilliant strategy that gives BOTH Parties involved Plausible Deniability, just like the perfect timing of the Wall Street Bailout,
the heist that was committed during the narrow window between administrations,
letting BOTH side point their fingers at the other.



Right now, forty percent of Americans make less than the minimum wage from 1968.

These things ^ do NOT happen by accident.
They take careful planning, preparation, marketing, buying the right politicians, message control, and the suppression, intimidation, and marginalization of any opposition,
or even those who ask the embarrassing questions.

These craven, gluttonous, elite sociopaths are very, VERY good at what they do.


You will know them by their [font size=3]WORKS.[/font]
