Wall Street exists only for the benefit of Wall Street! Modern Banks are Institutions that ''Hoover Up'' NOT ''Trickle Down'', anything other than shit!! The World Bank & IMF are organisations set up after WW2 to reconstruct Europe but after inception of Cold war they have become part of the tug of war between Capitalism and Communism and are now part of ... The Global Banksterocracy!!! However, digressing here now,so I'll try to come back to make a more thoughtful reply later.'Til then,consider Automated Algorithmic High Frequency Trading is a massive problem!

Hey Nevada :) good to see you stop by! Reality truly sucks right now - when one considers how broken our system of governance is and how deathly ill our society is that Drumpf actually could be a candidate and so much worse that he actually got elected!

"Do Stock Markets Make Sustainability Impossible?"

In a word = YES

The stock market promotes corruption to get the most out of nothing and shaft the investor that bought into your scam!

The more faces a broker rips off of investors the more millions in bonuses that broker will recieve!

"With open arms, Mounties help refugees who walked across the Canadian border"


Richard Wolff, economist, touches on these ideas and the chaos our economic system, focused on profit alone, produces.

Yanis Varoufakis on the unsustainability of the markets:


Max Keiser on the unsustainability of the markets:


Gar Alperovitz on the need for a new economic system:


Gar Alperovitz, "Some Requirements of a Steady-State Economy":


From the Alperovitz link above:

"On Corporate Growth and Corporate Power

So long as large private corporations must meet stock market demands for ever-greater (often quarterly) profit increases, they must “grow or die.” This dynamic is diametrically opposed to the need to slow or halt overall growth and resource use in general. And it also runs directly contrary to the need to control carbon emissions in particular. Additionally, corporate political power commonly acts as a powerful obstacle to progress on other vital ecological issues—as we have seen in the United States with the failed climate change legislation and continued efforts to discredit climate change science."

ROBERT REICH for all his speeches in support of Occupy, many of which were at actual occupations. He tirelessly explained our failed economic system to the people in a way they could understand.

More self-regarding US Exceptionalism, huh?! Some news for you MrG, USA isn't the only multi-ethnic, multi-religion society on Earth now, or in history!! In fact .. best comparison is actually Imperial Rome!!!

By the way - ''transcendence'' will come from humanity realizing that Esoteric Judeo Kabbalist; Gnostic Christian; Sufi-Muslim; Hindu / Buddhist Yogi; Zen Master or Psycho-Spiritual Adept of - ANY creed or none ... that our Spiritual Nature is either Universal OR it is non-existent ie. it is for everyone or no one! NO one tradition has either unique insight of or access to, the Numinous, Eternal, Immutable ..Ein Sof, Ommmkar, Ha Shem, YHWH, call it what you will!! It is ALWAYS ''e pluribus unum'' - for it was always ''e unum pluribus''!!!

The USA exists because of Christian Colonialism; Religious Refugees and Asylum Seekers .. and later Revolutionary, Liberal (relative to the times), Secular Humanists. God, had less to do with US' inception than The French Revolution. The First Amendment was as much about keeping all religion at bay in the ''government of the people'' as anything else. Also, what do you mean by ... ''the dominion of the U.S.''?!

NO refugee & his or her family, is coming to the US to ''subvert (y)our way of life eventually in the name of "religions" grapes and the USA is plenty strong enough to deal with ANY half-wit, who may think so! STOP being &/or wanting to be ... scared and outraged!! US Wars & Subversions, supported by NATO, are THE cause of misery & mass migration in the world today & to deny that, would be exceptionalist!!!

The only real ''liberty'' we have left is the freedom to think for ourselves and see and connect the dots we can glean and glimpse. Don't waste it on fear and hate .. like Oligarchy & Deep Govt. wants us to do ...

As the Conservatives' wet dream had it, our government is being run as a business, fast, efficient, and splat, the only problem being that it's not a business. Anyone who has kept their ear to the wall during the election campaign has no surprise of the contents of the very impressive Blitz of campaign-promise executive orders(which the Conservatives greatly decried as unconstitutional when they had come from the previous administration).

The U.S. will ALWAYS be a "Nation Based on Law." We'll simply get He-brewed extreme interrogation techniques, institute A.S.S.(》amerikanische Staatssicherheit《), use Israeli bulldozer-led "clearing" of legal settlements on occupied Dominion, declare Chinese "judicial sovereignty" wherever needed by our unsinkable aircraft carriers, and borrow from Allah's Laws, Shari'a.

Lit-hu-ania has the greatest waLL of all, visible by Allah, but doesn't it really belong in S-Iberia, north of Beijing of the Middle Kingdom, to block the Huns(Yellow Germans, the Moors, or White Russians, eh?)? Alla-hu Akbar!

As you could predict tRUMP's victory, you should also ask yourself, ''how''?! I speculate that reason is a combination of knowing how deeply programmed by RW Corporate MSM you know ''Turkeys Voting For Thanksgiving'' Americans to be AND the fact that .. Hellary Rotten Clinton was such a totally disastrous candidate - from such a disastrous and dishonest Dem Party Machine!! BUT frf ... there are more people organizing for more issues than EVER before & it has only been 3 months - since tRUMP was ''elected'' by ... less than 20% of adults in USA!!! Reform Dems - OR Thirrd Party For The People before 2020, frf?

''Kill The GOP''? Right - Good Idea! Care to remind us ''how'' again?!! Because they've got House, Senate and 44 States and being GOP-Lite and cheating Bernie Sanders AND USA's 99% worked so fkn well for DNC/DWS/HRC and corporate Dems ... right?!!!

USA has been deeply programmed by Corporations & Corporate MSM a& RW Oligarchy, DESPITE fact that Bernie took 22 States and .. ONLY cheating DNC Scum, kept him from winning the whole shooting match!!! So sure ''Kill The GOP'' - that's heavily backed by Oligarchy, ''Citizens United'' Corporations and RW Turkeys Voting For Thanksgiving OR say fuck Sell-Out Dems & establish a Proper Pro-99% Party!! Abraham Lincoln split The US Whig Party and then, won as a 3rd Party Candidate on <40% of the vote!

per aspera ad astra ...

Assange is stuck in Ecuador's Embassy in London, with trumped up charges from Sweden hanging over him, as a pretext to extradition to USA. He does NOT work for Russia ... tho' that doesn't preclude them or others using & playing him. The Podesta E-mail leaks are authentic and there's no question that they are genuine. The came from inside the DNC. Look into Seth Rich and please - STOP pining for HRC, frf!

Concerning being stronger together.

A reply I sent to Liz Warren in regards to a e-mail where she stated that the world just got a little bit better with the withdrawal of Drumpf's nominee for labor secretary.

-> Where is the concerted united and very vocal outrage of the rest of the democrats? His appointees are pure poison and yet you all basically act as though this is just another day in the neighborhood!



This was made very clear when none of you rallied around Bernie Sanders and his whole campaign platform - NO - INSTEAD sHillary Rotten Clinton was pushed down the public's throat even though WE DID NOT WANT HER and her lip-service attempt to steal Bernie's campaign platform!


You lost seats to the republicans - AGAIN!!! - on issues where they are blatantly against the working man = YOU LOST!!!!!!!!!!

Do You Understand how serious this trend IS ?

It is about the destabilization of the USA due to failure of government to represent for the Public!

He's more like the pretentious and garbled Pistol yet at times curt and disjunct like Nym.

Sorry not familiar with the reference.

Too bad He's not just comic relief but only very darkly humorous and mostly tragic.

Yes Drumpf is a very dark & tragic comedy - too bad for the rest of us that this dark and tragic comedy is not fictional but is actual reality that I fail to understand how he got elected. Till the whole 2016 election process travesty happened - I guess I just didn't realize just how deathly ill our society is.

What would be perfect comedy (funny comedy) would be if Drumpf drained the swamp fulfilling his campaign promise by implicating all of his administration as well as quite a few in congress in his illegal schemes/maneuverings/personal enrichment schemes launched from the white house.

I would probably fall over and die from uncontrollable laughter!
