Greetings good citizen,

What does it mean when so-called ‘investors’ behave indifferently to market information that the rest of us find, er, ‘disconcerting’?

Is it really as simple as asked:

Markets Shrug Off a Disappointing G.D.P. Number

Although data showed the economy expanded at an unexpectedly low 2.2 percent annual rate in the first quarter, the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index capped its best week in a month.

And answered?

I’m going to ‘vent’ a little bit here but I’m saving some for later.

‘Our government’ (and I use that term in the loosest possible context) bows to the ‘investor class’ who finances BOTH SIDES of the political divide.

WHY doesn’t the ‘investor class’ give a flying fig if US GDP is in the crapper?

Could it be because their ‘interests’ are being served better…elsewhere?

Let’s see what this article has to tell us:
Outsourced: American Corporations Create More Jobs Overseas Than At Home

With the nation’s unemployment rate still above eight percent, millions of Americans are looking for work, and the country’s biggest corporations are hiring. According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, however, many of those corporations are adding jobs overseas at a faster pace than they are at home. Even worse, others are cutting their domestic workforces while adding jobs in other countries at a rapid pace:

Those companies, which include Wal-Mart Stores Inc., WMT +2.70% International Paper Co., Honeywell International Inc. and United Parcel Service Inc., boosted their employment at home by 3.1%, or 113,000 jobs, between 2009 and 2011, the same rate of increase as the nation’s other employers. But they also added more than 333,000 jobs in their far-flung—and faster-growing— foreign operations.

The companies included in the analysis were the largest of those that disclose their U.S. and non-U.S. employment in annual securities filings. All of them have at least 50,000 employees. Collectively, they employed roughly 6.4 million workers world-wide last year, up 7.7% from two years earlier. Over the same period, the total number of U.S. jobs increased 3.1%, according to the Labor Department.

Now I’m (naturally) pissed.

The fucking morons who ‘own’ commerce in this dumbfuck country have put their interests ahead of those of this nation…which is TREASON any way you want to slice it!

The ONLY way it is NOT TREASON is when the same dumbfucks responsible for exporting our manufacturing base have seized control of what passes for our ‘justice system’.

[It’s not treason if you’re the one who gets to decide what is or isn’t treason.]

Oddly, a little closer to home, it’s not theft when they steal your retirement funds with their CDS, it’s a ‘bad investment’ that everybody but you knew about ahead of time…and the fucking bozo fund manager went ahead and sunk your money into it anyway!

So, I will ask (rhetorically,) how do we ‘fix’ this, good citizen?

I say rhetorically because we already know the answer…we CAN’T!

The tools are beyond our reach. It is up to our (corrupt) elected officials to fix our justice system, so it would prove extremely foolish to allow them to do so.

Which is to opine that we are incapable of trusting the repair of our justice system to the same people who broke it.

Which leaves us no alternative but to wipe the slate clean and start over from scratch.

Worse good citizen, we already know what the upcoming election will bring; four more years of the same (or accelerated) bullshit we’ve suffered with for the past four years!

It also means four more years where nothing gets done about the badly broken economy.

Are you prepared to apologize to your children for bringing them into a world that has no place for them? A place where they will likely be ‘exterminated like vermin’ (if they don’t starve to death first?)

Their deaths will be (if they are even acknowledged) dismissed as a sad case of being in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time’.

Where their most grievous error will be that of gathering in sufficient numbers to make their extermination effective!

It is a badly broken world we are passing on to our children…but they don’t know that!

The bad news is they think things are the way they are supposed to be!

We do them a great disservice if we don’t disabuse them of this notion, the corporate owned media ain’t gonna do the job!

NOW is the time to start thinking about your ‘legacy’…

Don’t put it off.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
