The Crisis

Please listen and think.

The Government took our money out of the economy and gave it to the banks.

The banks are hoarding this money and giving themselves bonuses, gambling in more risky ventures, and finding ways to scam the consumer. We are in a state of moral hazard; no penalties for banks and politicians that commit crimes.

This hording of money  and their irresponsi­bility has cut the flow – liquidity – into the economy forcing you to drain your savings and pension just to survive.

The banks are cutting credit, they are squeezing business to cut back employees, make those who are left work harder and longer for less and forcing all of us to fall deeper and deeper in debt to them. This is eroding our standard of living and pointing us as a nation and people towards the direction of a 2nd and 3rd world economy. A sharp divide between the rich and the poor. A place where the middle-class can not survive.

Austerity is being forced upon the American people against their will.

This austerity is not your responsibi­lity.

Debt is not a crime, Foreclosur­e is not a crime, Bankruptcy is not a crime.

Fraud, Larceny and Theft are crimes. The FED, the Big Banks on Wall Street and the politician­s are committing crimes.

Until these banks and politician­s are stopped your future, all our futures will consist of endless chaos, poverty and debt.

Take action now – get loud!

These guys mean business and they are NEVER going to come around in your favor, you can bank on that.

This system has to end. All the quantitati­ve easing and bank bailouts only maintain this corrupt system. It is keeping fraud alive.

The wealthy and the corrupt political powers bought and in charge have to fall. Their present debt, hidden by an Act of Congress, surpasses the world’s economy.

We have to close these banks and arrest the crooks.

We are being held hostage and will never free ourselves from the shackles of these banks until we put an end to them.

We can start over, history is proof.

Iranian Health Care for Mississippi

Over the last several months, American representatives and Iranian officials have swapped visits and trade secrets. No, they’re not politicians — they’re doctors. In the last 30 years, Iran has cut its infant mortality rate by 70 percent; that’s something to pay attention to, regardless of a nation’s nuclear ambitions.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a group of physicians in the Mississippi Delta hope to open “health houses” modeled on the 17,000 medical outposts in Iran. Since 1980, Iran has had small clinics in each rural community, staffed by trained members of that community focused on preventative care. These nurses’ aides then go door-to-door performing routine tests and determining if anyone needs to be referred to the hospital. “The community health workers will know who has diabetes, who has high blood pressure, who is 10 or 12-years-old and pregnant. They will know it because they live in the neighborhood and see them at church or the corner store,” said Dr. Aaron Shirley, the state’s first black pediatrician, who has spent his career working with Mississippi’s rural poor and is leading the charge for a three-year, $30 million health house pilot program.

Mississippi has the highest infant mortality rate in the nation, running neck and neck with poverty stricken nations such as HAITI – 50 percent higher than the national average, and ranks near the bottom in many other health metrics including obesity rates, teenage pregnancies and diabetes. “I ain’t never heard of Iran. But we could sure use somebody’s help,” said 80-year-old Erleen Smith, who lives alone in a drafty shotgun shack in Baptist Town, Mississippi.

Americans Thrust Into Poverty

“A new comprehensive economic survey shows that the recession has plunged 2.6 million more Americans into poverty, wiped out the household income gains of an entire decade and pushed the number of people without health insurance up to 46.3 million…

The nation’s poverty rate rose to 13.2 percent in 2008, up from 12.5 percent in 2007, the Census Bureau data showed. That was the first significant increase since 2004 and the highest level in 11 years.

In all, 39.8 million Americans were living in poverty in 2008, defined as an income of $22,025 for a family of four. The last time there were that many poor people was 1960, although the nation’s population was smaller then.

Almost one in five children younger than 18 are living in poverty, with the total number rising from 13.3 million in 2007 to 14.1 million in 2008.”
