Occupy Wall Street (Part 3)

A Real Estate Agents Perspective!

 

 

     I get really irritated whenever I hear a member of our government who is a so called financial expert claim that no one saw the financial meltdown of the housing market coming.  I was a Real Estate Agent from 2000 to almost 2005 and we all, agents, brokers, and loan officers alike, knew what was eventually coming.  It doesn’t take a financial genius to figure out that you just don’t sell $450,000 homes to people who could really only afford $225,000 homes at impossibly low adjustable rate mortgages of three and a half percent that would nearly double or triple over three to five years and expect everything to be just  hunky dory.  Quite simply, the government financial advisors who state that they didn’t see this coming are either outright liars or the most incompetent stupid financial idiots that ever walked the face of this planet.  And since we know they aren’t that stupid that only leaves the first choice above.

     And then for our government to have been complacent and allowed big banks and Wall Street to develop and implement a ponzi scheme insurance racket called derivatives that intentionally sucked the middle class dry was nothing less then securities fraud.  And finally, to have the gall to use tax payer money to bail banks out and not let them go bankrupt as payment for their misguided greed was utter and complete government mismanagement.  And with all that said, now four years later, not one person has been indicted and gone to jail for this treasonous crime against the United States.  Instead, they got bonuses.  Who says crime doesn’t pay!

     If this had been any average middle class American he or she would have never seen the light of day ever again.  Is it any wonder that the tea party or the occupy Wall Street movement are outraged.  This country, I’m sorry to say, is broken.  And as citizens of this once great country it is our duty to fix it.  Only elect politicians who do not use corporate campaign contributions and move as much money as you can out of large financial institutions and into small community run banks or credit unions.  They say that small businesses are the backbone of America, so let’s make them to big to fail!

Occupy Wall Street (Part 2)

Social Activism Against Social Injustice

     Occupy wall street is about feeling faceless in a vast social configuration where life has become nothing more then a number.  Bob Seger said it best with his song lyrics, “I feel like a number, I feel like a stranger in this town, I feel like a number.”  We don’t want to be numbers any longer and we have the social networks of both facebook, and yes, even myspace, as well as others to thank for this.  The social networks have given us our voices back and this movement has only just begun.  We refuse to continue to be witless consumers sucked dry by corporations, governments, and to big to fail banks, in a financial world that has truly lost its way.

     I find it humorous when I hear the media postulate that the occupy movement will somehow dissipate as the colder winter weather moves in, nothing could be further from the truth.  Oh yes, demonstrations may scale back a bit over the holidays and what not, but then will come the occupy spring of discontent as America moves into its full scale political arms race that we refer to as elective government.  And if you thought that this movement has already run its course?  Then I say just wait and see what’s coming both here in America and abroad. 

     This is a worldwide phenomenon that encompasses more then just greed and the haves and have not’s.  This is about respect, honesty, integrity, and everything that governments, corporations, and large financial institutions, seem to be lacking in their models of fair and just treatment for all.  These entities have a brief period of time to change their practices or this movement will see to it that they fail, or are otherwise voted out of their jobs.   An ocean gets its start with a single drop of water and it is abundantly clear that the single drop has had it with the status quo and can make a difference because this ocean of single drops refuse’s to remain faceless any longer.  Finally, there is no government, corporation, or financial institution that is to big to fail, and we the people can see to that, if necessary!

OCCUPY WALL STREET

 

It’s been beat into our heads over and over that the United States is fourteen plus trillion dollars in debt and then I read that Europe owes the U.S. a trillion dollars.  I go onto read that many other countries, Japan being one, owe America perhaps trillions more.  And this begs the question is there really a fourteen trillion dollar deficit in America or is this a shell game cooked up by god knows who to make it just look like we’re in the bottomless pit of debt?

     I’m really ticked at our government, the banking system, as well as all of the world financial regulators right at the moment, and I want some straight answers.  And if they can’t fess up and provide them, then I hope the Occupy Wall Street movement, brings you all down because it’s time to rewrite a whole lot of policy worldwide which includes throwing the whole bunch of you out of your jobs and starting over!  Catch my drift?
