NOT creating jobs, and NOT contributing to the tax base!
By Jack E. Lohman
UPDATE: It has been estimated more recently to be $20-30 trillion.
Yea, I think these Fat Cats are going to be wide-eyed surprised one day. Once the foreign tax-haven politicians see the right moment, they’ll confiscate this “illegal wealth” for their own. Much like they do in Russia, and certainly in keeping with the trend.
And those who move off-shore will not have to worry as much about pirates as their own security guards gone bad.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. I love it.
Life is really a bitch, don’cha know?
Even now the Fat Cat bankers are supporting the reinstatement of Glass-Steagall, surely because they see the handwriting on the wall. Their strategy must be, push up to the brink and then back off a little, keeping most of your gains. Do this enough and you may become king!
Yes they are greedy, but they are not stupid!
The answer is the same…
It all boils down to the same old question: who is bribing the politicians? And the same answer: public funding of campaigns.
Few of us would have problems with our politician’s decisions if we knew that they were being made without political bribes changing hands. You know, getting a piece of the action!
