  1. Those rat bastards. Not surprisingly this is good news because these are the people who are in unions , work in the public sector and if united against the banks, may have an impact on progressive social change and selective prosecution of the Global Mafia’s banksters and bloodsucking Bushiste derivative chimeras. Revolution lies dormant in the subconscious .
    When enough people awake from their bad dreams and find out the unthinkable is true, perhaps they will call their friends and begin the long task of confirmation, reversal of years of denial and the diligent application of appropriate pressure to reform and restore transparent and proportional democracy , accountability, honesty, integrity and hope to the people from which it has been stolen.

    Destroy the Too big to Jail banks and Corporate Royals. Off with their heads, I say.

    1. When those of us in our 50s and 60s allow THIS to actually sink in maybe then we will all rise up and GUILLOTINE all the bastards who did this: “In a way, this was a repeat of a shell game with retirement finance that had been going on at the federal level since the Reagan years. The supposed impending collapse of Social Security, which actually should be running a surplus of trillions of dollars, is now repeated as a simple truth. But Social Security wouldn’t be “collapsing” at all had not three decades of presidents continually burgled the cash in the Social Security trust fund to pay for tax cuts, wars and God knows what else. Same with the alleged insolvencies of state pension programs. The money may not be there, but that’s not because the program is unsustainable: It’s because bankers and politicians stole the money.”
      They have spent it, and now they think they have no choice but to lie us into believing ‘chained cpi’ is necessary to keep it from becoming insolvent! I say take all those billions the hedge funders and Wall Street banks keep rubbing our faces in and use THAT to make SS solvent again! WHERE THE FUCK IS ROBIN HOOD WHEN YOU NEED HIM?!

      Pwr 2 the ANGRY peons!
      GUILLOTINE GOVERNMENT LIES!

      1. Sis,
        Matt is exposing the way the Walker’s of this country are sticking it to the police and firemen after all. Nice.

      1. Cannot believe cruz and demint WTF blatant lies and propaganda the worst form of bombastic charlatanism and specious criminal disinformation. Well look at guv rick perry what a buffoon .

      2. We have our own buffoon governor here in WI. The Koch whore/tool Scott Walker. A total puppet for the corporate agenda.

  2. And pip-pip cheerio lovely post, hats off to Taibbi , Dickinson, Goodman, Greenwald, Assange, Snowden Wolff, posthumously to Hastings, Gandolfini, and the Kennedy trio who gave their lives for the day in the near future when the evil empire is brought down in chains and sent to hell’s bottomless prison industrial complex without passing go or collecting $ 200.00, no get out of jail free cards, no free parking.. Rise up fools. Read Formenting Rebellion , Sustainable Insurrection on a budget and Cyber-Sabotage for a good cause for Dummies.

    Use the methods of the Royal Corps- robo calling mass mailing and spamming – overwhelm your phoney congressional representatives and demand action. Pretend to be corporate sponsers and lobbyists.
