Glass-Steagall: How would I have qualified for my first Home Loan. Was I a high risk? Probably. But I’ve paid my 11 and 7/8 % compounding interest loan off and refinanced that home and bought another paying my bills on time for the last 26 years and as a result have one of the highest credit ratings you can receive. And I do that with a lower middle class income. Now, what did the Federal Government gain from that loan in the way of profits, (relatively little.) But if they did that to millions like me, they raked in a fortune. But maybe Glass-Steagall is what made that possible.
I was an Honorably Discharged Veteran, served 5 years 3 months active duty and 7 months inactive and would have served more under the right circumstances but I had a problem of being in an “All Professional Military” and after 5 years qualifying for welfare accomplished when the Fed saw to it through hyper-inflation took IT ALL back all the gains my income made when I entered Service. (What the government gives out, it takes back through Collusion like NAFTA, REPEALING GLASS-STEAGAL AND NOW TPP removing our sovereign constitutional protections with his stroke of a pen.) | Collusion is an agreement between two or more parties, sometimes illegal and therefore secretive, to limit open competition by deceiving, misleading, or defrauding others of their legal rights, or to obtain an objective forbidden by law typically by defrauding or gaining an unfair market advantage. It is an agreement among firms or individuals to divide a market, set prices, limit production or limit opportunities. It can involve “wage fixing, kickbacks, or misrepresenting the independence of the relationship between the colluding parties”. In legal terms, all acts effected by collusion are considered void.
Veterans come home broken people who get pushed into the depths of the background while their bodies deteriorate and the Liberal VA funds expensive Statues and ignores the needs of our disenfranchised Veterans, and Liberal POTUS’s go on lavish trips all over the world while Rome Burns to the ground. BARACK NERO OBAMA.
I look at our nation as an animal with a long breath. It breaths in and expands until it reaches it’s limit, but then, instead of a long steady exhale, it blows it’s resources out very quickly more like a sneeze, (Bank Failures i.e. Too Big To Fail, removing safeguards like Glass-Steagall to insure the greed of those empowered to protect our money don’t have to any more and can walk away with fortunes footed by taxpayer dollars and broken pension funds while those very same taxpayers lose their homes, their families, their jobs and their childrens futures to outsourcing, homeland security, open borders and the elimination of our Constitution (NAFTA/TPP.)
I really feel he can be, but his needs to stay a billionaire outweigh some considerations I have in regard to his service.
Yes we need to lower taxes, (no argument there.) We need to build an infrastructure comparable to Europe, Japan and China, (like mass transit, renewable energy without polluting the air we breath and adding to the COPD death toll.)
We need sufficient fossil fuels to keep us going until modern technologies are designed. Some examples would be power plants that use mirrors for steam generation. Horizontal wind mills that don’t pollute the skyline like, ( the super expensive to purchase, keep and maintain,) huge vertical windmills made in europe do.
Forest management that harvests dried grasses and underbrush to use in steam powered generators or biogas powered generators and in doing so, creating fire breaks to manage the growth of forests so we don’t lose lumber and old growth trees to fires.
We can manage fires by utilizing fuels from refuge, dried summer grasses, and cut underbrush that power generators by the use of controlled discharge and filtration whereby clean exhaust using filters and double burners that are easily cleaned and disposed of that don’t waste those resources and burn for months at a time during the summer and exhausting manpower and resources including the fuel, chemicals and precious water supplies during droughts needed to harness and fight preventable wildfires as a part of forest management.
Reliable, comfortable, safe and affordable modern mass transit for short trips of 200 miles or less in States Like California, Oregon and Washington. (Current technology get’s at least 100 mpg in rail transportation.) We can do much better than that with proper wheel and rail design improvements.
Resurrect factories in Detroit and Chicago? Only if they are designed with filtration units that don’t jeopardize the air and water quality of surrounding communities, and decimate wildlife to extinction.
Power generation from sewage and dump waste.
All of this without disenfranchising the American Citizen that pays taxes, and supports the system. Corporations all too often have loopholes where there are zero taxes paid yet their corporations rake in Billions of dollars. As long as they don’t pilfer the coffers that were meant for needed Social Programs like Social Security and Medicare I don’t have a problem. Illegal labor forces are a problem when they don’t contribute to the tax coffers that support their own medical needs, roads and bridge repair, and the safety net as SSI was intended.
That means that the regular Joe and Jane are paying for the infrastructure, the military, social security, and all the other projects that often waste money by supporting illegal immigrants, instead of improving our culture and civilization, that were launched by the likes of the Clintons, (or should I say the Clantons.)
We need to all get involved and be proactive in our communities to make sure budgets don’t go over actual costs as they so often do because of the “pull” someone has in city hall.
We just have to pull up our collective sleeves and make good decisions.
Donald can be a force for positive change and remove the shackles of liberalism in this country. Too often promises are made just to get elected and then Pandora’s Box is opened to the tax coffers that fuel our Military Industrial Complex that selectively enriches companies while gutting Social Programs for seniors. Gutting the coffers of the Post Office.
My Home Town has gone from a pristine forested rural area close to fishing, camping and hiking wonderlands to an overcrowded streams, roads, and lakes and a sense of tension brought on by people commuting from high-stress jobs, in a rush to get home.
Friday traffic to get to the sporting events at the local schools and colleges contribute to the desire to escape at any cost. Fishing and camping grounds crisscrossed with ATV’s, motorbikes, and all kinds of disruptive behaviors that didn’t exist when I was young. (There was much more respect in every kind of way back then than there is now.) It wasn’t perfect but there was a sense of order then that has been replaced by “Natural Consequences”.
One thing I like about the German Language is it has respect built in, until you go to Berlin, Cologne, Bonn, Frankfurt, and the bigger cities where they have abandoned that respect in favor of “Natural Consequences”.
Their language is morphing into our English. “It’s Cool To Be Disrespectful” but they hate Americans because we haven’t had it handed to us in modern warfare. They are like teenagers watching a fight and hoping the tough guy gets his butt whipped by a tougher guy.
When that happens, then they will be responsible for the world supply of oil and keeping radicals from mass shootings in their gay bars and defending the USA from harm’s way.
We lost a lot of people in WWII fighting against the AXIS powers. It was a combined effort of the resistance, England, Russia, Canada, Australia, China and the Philippines and even European support that overpower the Huns, Italians, and Japanese in WWII. It went right down to the wire and the allied forces got a break that allowed them to overcome the AXIS powers.
To say that we haven’t lost wars is just wrong. Vietnam was a lost cause. We are in a holding pattern with Korea. China is ignoring any power that the US holds in the Pacific. If you want us nuked to make a point, then what’s left of the planet will be yours to clean up, because on that day all hell will break lose.
You Europeans don’t have the levels of radiation released at Fukushima that has polluted the entire west coast adding to the already high levels of Cesium dumped there by the Nuclear Power Plants that don’t know where to put the radiated barrels of spent plutonium. My Mother, Sister, Mother-in-law, sister-in-law have all suffered from Cancer and the treatments to get back their health.
We’ve been promised by the Egg-Heads in Europe and America since the 50’s that by now Fusion would be harnessed for power generation, but they are so smart that they forgot that promise. All their math and all their theories are bunk and their egos have written checks our bodies can’t cash.
So now we have to put up with a medical profession akin to street drug pushers who push high blood pressure medications, give you medicines that put you in the hospitals not keep you out of hospitals. They have created specialisations that profit from the now high cancer rates brought on by the reckless use of nuclear power, industrial plants, and unregulated discharges into drinking water.
All that said, I’m voting for Trump because there is no alternative. The only alternatives are higher taxes, less jobs, inflation, or worse, stagnation.
The opposition is weak, a fraud, and was in the White House and looted the treasures that belonged in the White House, worse than common thieves, perverts and liars and now they want back in to deregulate the Banks like they did last time, and send more jobs across our borders like they did last time and loot the treasury like they did last time.
We don’t have many choices because this system is wrought with corruption no matter who gets in office.
I’m not sure what the answer is. Switzerland has a direct Democracy, but since they are neutral, have huge money resources in their banks, and are not like the other countries in the world it would be hard to fashion our government like theirs. They make double in wages and salaries than the rest of the world.
Black Lives Matters is a pseudonym for Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia Law that blacks filled with hate use as they build armies to kill non-muslims for dissing Allah. It’s just an excuse to hate and kill, and has no foundation in Love, Family, or Peace as they claim. They teach their four year old children to hate, kill, and overcome those whom they feel have wronged them for whatever reason and they are here in America, their hate fueled by the Current Whitehouse members.

The IRS has discovered more than 1 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal immigrants, but officials never bothered to tell the taxpayers themselves, the agency’s inspec
