Financial Terrorism

It is important to understand what our government is up to right now with the the Treasury plan to help "private investors" buy and value toxic assets.

What I'd point out is that while the American public is mesmerized with the billions of taxpayer and Fed dollars being thrown around, the real story here is power, not money. Corporations who have been able to get the government to deregulate them for the last decade, now are getting the government to bail them out of the mess that deregulation got them into. This isn't a recipe for recovery, this is a recipe for the corporate takeover of government. You will understand once you watch the following video:

Also the article, "Bank Bailouts Financial Terrorism and You", is a must read.

I am very sad for our country right now.
