Several Billion Reasons to be More Upset

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Across America, the fit is really hitting the shan. Regular citizens are expressing well-warranted dissent, only to find out just how much their country has crept into the clutches of a police state.

The question is, why aren’t you among them? If you’re not, then here’s a few billions reasons to be upset:

To start, taxpayer-owned mortgage giant Freddie Mac has invested billions of dollars speculating that U.S. homeowners won’t be able to refinance their mortgages at today’s lower rate. At the same time, Freddie Mac has been actively limiting the refinancing options available to these same homeowners.

Simply put, “Freddie Mac prevented households from being able to take advantage of today’s mortgage rates — and then bet on it,” says Alan Boyce, a former bond trader. It’s absolutely criminal what they are doing. Or at least it should be. But these greedy bankers will keep it up until the hammer of justice crushes them.

On the other side of the world, another robbery is being perpetrated. The Department of Defense has lost another 2 Billion Dollars. Whoops! Well, if they got away with it before, why would they bother to change?

These thefts are utterly reprehensible, and should, especially for those of you who are American taxpayers, rile up a foul taste in your mouth. It’s the feeling of being taken advantage of, and it will continue to happen until you get off your butt, get your voice heard, and help co-create a brighter future.

Occupation Interrupted

We’re just a few weeks into the North American wing of the international populist movement towards a more just civilization, and already law enforcement is cracking down hard. Hundreds have been arrested in New York – ground zero for the Occupy demonstrations – and now Iowa and Boston can add their names to the growing list of victims of ham-handed security forces.

Silly police brass… don’t they know that arresting people can only add fuel to the fire? Heck, they’ve been gunning down and bombing dissenters in Syria and Yemen, and even that isn’t working. But jailing war veterans? Come on, that’s just begging for an uprising.

If their goal was to silence dissent, they could try what DC Police did, extending the demonstrator’s permit for another 4 months. But even that won’t work. These mass displays are showing no sign of fizzling out. There is too much to be angry about, too many reasons for the people to angrily reclaim their lost power.

No, this movement has only just begun, and no amount of suppression will stop us.


Man, what an exciting period in modern human history. Not since Wikileaks started Cablegate, or when Tunisia and Egypt erupted in successful revolution, have I felt this giddy. This is it! It is really happening. We are who we’ve been waiting for!
