Economic Nuremberg Trials?  The War On Economic Terrorism.  Oh, And Happy Solstice! (June 25, 2018)

. . .

K          “The victors prosecute war crimes against the vanquished.  When he had extra ordinance after a mission, Chuck Yeager followed orders and strafed innocent German civilians on the way back to the air base.  He later commented that he counted on America winning the war so that there would be no untoward consequences.  In America today, the economic criminals are given carte blanche to commit crimes without consequence.”

J          “They are free to strafe the public.  ‘Economic Terrorism’ is the problem and the crime.  We the people are the vanquished, but if we are ever victorious we need to conduct public trials.  The Republicans are owned lock, stock and sinker by the financial interests; the Democrats are owned hook, line and barrel by the financial interests.  Neither party will ever hold those who commit economic terrorism accountable.”

K          “The ‘Economic Nuremberg Trials’ are the only answer.  The political system is too corrupt to offer recourse.  The legal system is too corrupt to offer recourse.  The only way there will be change is if the change is demanded and pursued by the populace.”

. . .

K          “Look.  Listen.  The public is restless and restive.  And may not continue to rest.  A restless friend remarked that the lights may not work in the near future, but the light posts will always work.”

J          “A co-worker says he regularly sharpens his semi-automatic pitch fork.”

K          “When the Collapse comes, there will be little public appetite to conduct something as dainty as a trial for the brigands who circumvented the rules and the laws and the rule of law in a country without the rule of law.”

. . .

J          “The grievances are percolating and festering, but too many are avoiding and opioiding.  At this time, the anger and the outrage are being directed inward not outward.”

K          “The populace is just barely getting by economically and psychologically.  God bless them, but they do not have the understanding, the fortitude, the energy or the courage to get behind the effort to combine due process and justice in a country without due process or justice.”

J          “When you get right down to it, the people are dispirited and defeated.  Nothing will be done.”

K          “Broken and broke.”

J          “But the truth and justice thing sure was a good idea while it lasted.”

Bumper stickers of the week:

You show me a great fortune; I show you a great crime.

“Those who make peaceful revolution [resolution] impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”  John F. Kennedy (Ted could have polished/improved/cadenced the statement by saying “peaceful resolution” rather than “peaceful revolution”.)

“I hold it that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing.”  Thomas Jefferson

We live in a country with many, many, many rules and many, many, many laws, but we do not live in a country that believes in or adheres to the rule of law.

You cannot get out of bed in the morning without violating some section of title 18 of the United States Code, the federal criminal code.  In fact, and as a matter of law, you cannot stay in bed in the morning without violating some section of title 18 of the United States Code, the federal criminal code.  In practice, the United States is a system of men not laws because men and women opt from the panoply of laws that punish all behavior and decide who is and who is not imprisoned.

There is no law.  There is only ideology.

Let’s call a truce in the war on drugs, on poverty, on women, on blacks, on browns and start a war on economic terrorism.

When the mountain calls, don’t let it go to voice mail
