I discovered this on FB this morning: Bill Clinton to Millennials: You Are Everything That’s Wrong With This Country, Please Vote for Hillary. According to the future First Husband, “If all the young people who claim to be disillusioned now had voted in 2010, we wouldn’t have lost the Congress, and we’d probably have our incomes back,” he said. Blaming the victims for the stupidity of his wife is beyond ridiculous. The banana man has spoken… the gutless spume of a cyborg autarch preaching to the poor and excluded, the overtaxed and underpaid worker, student, and generally out of work or part-timer uninsured Millennial. It’s as if someone had programmed him to relay the switch diagrams of the Oligarchic paradigm into moral deliberations for the insane.
The guy was garbage bagger then, and still is… back then he praised them, now he wants to vilify them? What a piece of work… A sex pot with a smug pocket book smile who makes a living conning the rich and castigating the poor and intelligent among us. While his affectless and robotic wife struts the stage of imbecility threatening and waving her ignorance before the world like a Mata Hari of the jet set robbing the secrets of the world, spying on the rich and famous and holding it over them like a sledgehammer for her bankrolled run for dictator of the U.S.A. Lobby’s in her hidden hand, sunglasses to hide her metal eyes, and a voice that rings false even as it spatters her constituents with promises of an American Dreamland. Like her forbears she is the mimic of a sordid gamble, a queen whose only realm is the illusory vision of corruption and control, a world depleted of its resilience and handed over to the dictates of billionaires and plutocratic autarchs.
This from the man who in 1993 contrived the Accident of 2007 by deregulating the banks. The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999 and commonly pronounced ″glibba″, (Pub.L. 106–102, 113 Stat. 1338, enacted November 12, 1999) is an act of the 106th United States Congress (1999–2001). It repealed part of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933, removing barriers in the market among banking companies, securities companies and insurance companies that prohibited any one institution from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and an insurance company. With the bipartisan passage of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, commercial banks, investment banks, securities firms, and insurance companies were allowed to consolidate. Furthermore, it failed to give to the SEC or any other financial regulatory agency the authority to regulate large investment bank holding companies. The legislation was signed into law by President Bill Clinton.
The act is “often cited as a cause” of the 2007 subprime mortgage financial crisis “even by some of its onetime supporters.” President Barack Obama has stated that GLBA led to deregulation that, among other things, allowed for the creation of giant financial supermarkets that could own investment banks, commercial banks and insurance firms, something banned since the Great Depression. Its passage, critics also say, cleared the way for companies that were too big and intertwined to fail.
Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz has also argued that the Act helped to create the crisis. In an article in The Nation, Mark Sumner asserted that the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act was responsible for the creation of entities that took on more risk due to their being considered “too big to fail“. Other critics also assert that proponents and defenders of the Act espouse a form of “eliteconomics” that has, with the passage of the Act, directly precipitated the current economic recession while at the same time shifting the burden of belt-tightening measures onto the lower- and middle-income classes.
And he wants me to support his wife? Give me a break!!!
