Colma’s Costume last night.
Colma knows how to party
Well, Ross Perot is in the news (I thought this guy was dead) today with his comments that suggest due to our economy’s weakness and fragility that we could be “taken over”…according to the article below he didn’t mention who or how the take over would occur…I’m sure TBPers have many ideas on this. BTW check out Perot’s duds in this pic
I’m not sure if he was going for the Freddy Krueger look, you decide
America could be ‘taken over,’ warns Ross Perot
Former presidential contender and billionaire Ross Perot is worried that America is a sitting duck for an unnamed foreign invader. In an interview for his new autobiography, Perot said the nation’s weak economy has left us open for a hostile takeover—and neither presidential candidate is the man to save the country.
Citing an impending fiscal cliff, Perot warned of disaster. “If we are that weak, just think of who wants to come here first and take us over,” the former CEO of info-tech company Perot Systems told USA Today on Monday.
“The last thing I ever want to see is our country taken over because we’re so financially weak, we can’t do anything,” Perot says.
When asked for his take on the presidential race, Perot added, “Nobody that’s running really talks about it, about what we have to do and why we have to do it. They would prefer not to have it discussed.”
However cryptic he may be, this is the first political reckoning by Perot in years, ever since he withdrew from the political landscape after the fall of his Reform Party in the 2000 election. The man who ran the most successful third-party campaigns in contemporary American politics also expressed optimism about the current tea party activism and its efforts to “wake up” both Washington and the electorate.
Still, he thinks that even the fresh voices in the populist, small-government tea party movement aren’t focusing on the real doomsday issue: the deficit. Comparing the Washington establishment to a bunch of fiscal drunks, Perot is still waiting for America to undergo an intervention, before it finds itself owned by a new global power. “It’s like the guy who’s drinking—sooner or later, he’s got to put a cork on the bottle, right?”
According to Judge Napolitano’s Facebook page, his final episode airs February 13th, 2012. Rumors are circulating that he has been fired by Fox Business. Some members of the blogosphere have suggested that the below video is the cause. I highly recommend watching the video! Judge Napolitano doesn’t pull any punches in this 4 minute bashing of the American political system!
His “what ifs” are scarily accurate and more than a little frustrating!
Wow! This tidbit that came out exactly a year later about a Halloween party hosted by lawfirm Steven J. Baum should add fuel to the fire of the OWS movement and lend validity to cries of “class warfare”…. To think that this was encouraged let alone tolerated and encouraged as the “theme” of the party shows the hollow lack of compassion and empathy while showing the arrogance of some boot lickers who want to emulate their bosses’ swag at the expense of someone else. I’m sure these fuckers explanation is “buyer beware” which has been with us since Roman Law…this is where ethics and morality are supposed to come into play in a society in order to assist those less educated, less economically fortunate, and more trusting albeit gullible and niave of us who fall for predatory-styled scams, gimmicks and outright fraud….unfortunately the ruling minority have thrown those childish ideals aside to pursue their desire to become RICH and Famous or pimp their ride or crib just like the t.v. shows they grew up watching on the boob tube have bestowed prestige upon.
The fact that these two women below thought it appropriate and in good taste to clown on Americans who were foreclosed on illegaly and then mock the new “illegal” buyer as a squatter shows the gap in understanding between the majority of the upper 1% (those trying to please their masters in the upper 1/10th of 1%) and the remaining 99%; particularly the bottom 40%. The middle class is late to the party; but, with shrinking pension accounts, reduced wages, higher retirement ages, and reforms to Social Security that will inevitabely come, the Americans who once comprised the middle class and those still clinging to the middle-class title will be the mass necessary to tip the world into global insurrection against banker occupation (GIABO according to Max Keiser).
My views on this are not the norm right now….but what I see is nothing short of global riots, strikes and protests met with an iron fist police state. The iron fist will be wielded by a new financial order that will rise from the ashes of the current system that has flat-lined but been recesitated and is in a medically induced coma; breathing with help from a respirator. This has all been socially-engineered to this point. This is not to say that we should simply stand by and do nothing. Hardly! Just know that all these articles that incite fear and hate, although justified, need to be placed in the proper context of the bigger picture. TPTB’s trap has been set, the surveillance grid is being subtly erected everyday, while more and more people are waking up to the fraud and crimes against humanity that continue to happen and continue to go unpunished. This makes for an ugly next few years domestically; not to mention, the ramifications regionally throughout the world.
Top Foreclosure Firm’s Homeless-Themed Halloween Party Pictures Spark Controversy on Internet
(Excerpt from story)
The story goes like this: New York’s largest foreclosure law firm, Steven J. Baum, held it’s big annual Halloween party last year, as they do every year the Friday before October 31. Nearly a year later, a former employee sent photos from the party to NY Times columnist Joe Nocera. But unlike most Halloween costume parties, this one sparked anger: the pictures depict what appears to be a “homeless” theme, with employees at the Buffalo-based firm apparently mocking the very homeowners their law firm targets with foreclosure.
Anyways, enough of the rant on what I see panning out in the near future, what say you about the picture above?! Good taste? Poor taste? Funny? Classy? What say you?!
is it a moment?
or a GAME OFF! moment
