The Making of a Toasted English Muffin and the Greatest Madness: While I do think that some of the London violence is copycat and that some perpetrate it solely for ability to steal, I believe generally human beings are prodded to violence by a deep sense of social outrage and anomie. It is anger about things they cannot control and it is about a life that sees no hope. I understand this anger and share much of it about this country as well. I feel immense fury when I realize those responsible for the Greatest Recession in 2007 have received NO punishment and people on Main Street have received no justice. They see everything for which they have worked with diligence, dwindle.
I experience even more fury when I helped elect a president I loved who has not yet projected the vitriol promised against the forces of Wall Street and their Congressional lackeys he vowed to stop. They continue still to perpetrate this global economic monster NOT for the middle class but for the top 2% of wealth. What is happening now GLOBALLY is related to that. The youth who riot, do not understand the interconnectedness of it all.
The fraudulent scam that Wall Street and The City (London’s Wall Street) pulled in the early 2000’s while government stuffed its pockets with Wall Street gold, struck at the global heart. The people of the European failed economic states prompting the anger in riots can, in pertinent part, thank a system of greed-gone-wild with the help of a gentlemen’s agreement with power. They transmitted this mendacious viral contagion to the innocent while the guilty walk away with trillions of middle class money.
Were they creating jobs with the loot they received from us? No, they were buying yachts! Wealth, we should have learned, does NOT trickle down to us but trickles up to them. We pay and they play. The riots one sees in London have spread elsewhere and I believe will continue unless we force those to pay who rightfully should. Riots, I believe fearfully, are coming to a country near you UNLESS we stop those who turned a blind eye to Wall Street fraud, punish the guilty and put people back to work.
All of Congress, all of Parliament, all of Wall Street and all of The City eat like gluttons while the rest of humanity starves.
Wake up! Wall Street, The City, its Parliament and Washington stooges are NOT your friends. Through your vote and your voice get rid of the Machiavellian immoral scum who defrauded the middle class. Then regulate and punish those who are guilty of this fraud. Make power work for you and not for the top 2% whose money, corruption, greed and graft created the toasted English muffin and, I believe, the Greatest economic Madness man has ever known.
