Happy Thanksgiving week to all of you! This week’s doubleheader by our podcaster extraordinaire, Mr. Burr Deming (creator and chief author of the fabulous blog Fair and features not only the one titled above, but also one called “Complicated Financial Fraud Made Very Simple”.  Un the first, In the first, Burr asks us to consider what might have occurred if…

But imagine the result if the President had directed immigration reform by executive order, but had gone much farther than anyone thought will happen.  Suppose, on top of that,  the President directed some very tough words at those who would criticize his executive order,    Here’s a prediction. We will be reading about that precise event as Congress fails to act.”

 In his second fabulous podcast, Burr tells of the anger and frustration he felt with crooked Wall Street mortgage bankers as he watched a recent brilliant interview Amy Goodman had on Democracy Now! with investigative journalist Matt Taibbi and former JP Morgan Chase  attorney Alayne Fleischmann. Having seen this same interview,  I share in his justified outrage.

But someone has come into our lives who makes it just clear enough. Maybe we can bring a few of the hostage takers to justice after all.”

I am an American Dissident trapped in a country where poor and middle class people are constantly being exploited and lied to by a very rigid and conservative plutocratic elite. I believe in government OF, FOR, and BY the people, not one controlled as it now is by corporations and special interests.
