There's no good reason whatsoever not to put the unemployed to work right now on needed public projects (even if it's just picking up litter to start with, but there's plenty of work that needs doing that wouldn't take much pre-planning) paid for and run publicly. The obstacle is greed. The money is there to do it.
The government is planning another wave or two or three of cash to the banksters even while they will move to cut entitlements and unemployment, etc., under the pretext of heading off inflation but really to protect the value of the banksters' tens of trillions of stolen tax dollars. That should not be stood for by the people. Frankly, if Obama does that again, it's impeachment time.
The problem though is that Congress will have voted for more of the scam before Obama signs it. The whole place (Congress and the White House is a den of vipers).
O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. (Matthew 12:34 KJVR)
There are very, very few in either place (Congress or White House) with much if any heart. Even the ones lionized by the left and by the libertarian capitalists are wimpy. They routinely cave in. They rarely raise their voices in passionate speeches (too phony "civil") to motivate the masses and then follow through themselves. It's all pathetic, actually. Perhaps we can encourage them though to do more, to stand up and not sit back down even if they lose their seats.
I'm for full public employment now. To Hell with the banksters living high off the hog at everyone else's negative expense. Let's bring the greedy pigs down to Earth but stop short of doing to them what they've done to everyone else.
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. (Matthew 7:6 KJVR)
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. (Matthew 23:13 KJVR)
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (John 13:34 KJVR)
It is real love to tell everyone all of this. It must all be said. To hide it is to truly hate everyone, to have not much if any love.
We don't have to starve the banksters to death. We just need to stop them from stopping others from being able to take care of each other. We need to feed and clothe and house and heal and do all the other things. The banksters are only standing in the way. It's time we walked right through them.
The Federal Reserve is a closely held (private) system owned by and operated under the orders of a handful of banking dynasties. The national currency was privatized under false pretenses. The result is the National Debt that never had to be. The result is the income tax and vastly higher taxes to service the National Debt interest-only payments to the banksters and their ilk. The Federal Reserve does exactly nothing to earn anything. The US runs a deficit. It issues bonds to the Fed. The Treasury prints the Federal Reserve Notes against those bonds. The government (people; tax payers) then owe the interest on those bonds. It's an idiotic cycle that does nothing good at all, only bad!
That whole cycle is useless except that it gives the private bankers a huge cut of the proceeds of the scam. Those banksters then use those proceeds to do whatever they want, including lobbying the Congress and giving campaign contributions and hiring away members of government, etc., not to mention living in their mansions and having loads of servants.
It's all at the expense of everyone else but more than anyone else, the very poorest who get no share because the richest have millions of shares more than anyone needs or should even want while others starve.
Re-nationalizing the US currency would immediately allow the US to pay off the national debt and thereby completely eliminate the interest portion of all income taxes forever. All the hard work of people to earn the money to pay that portion of their income tax payments would then be going to something other than unproductive interest payments that only further enrich the crooks whose ancestors set up the whole scam. The money could go to 100% solar and wind and geothermal, completely free (no energy bills for you to pay anymore) energy for all. That system could power all the transportation needs too and also for free – no borrowing or debiting anything to go anywhere you now may but only if you pay. Think of what that would mean in terms of improving everyone's quality of life.
This is not brand new information. The national currency aspect has been known for centuries now. The US Constitution was founded on the principle. It's just been hidden from the people by the banksters and the corporations they own or control through debt, including all the major media and publishing companies. They also control the textbook publishers of the most-used textbooks in public schools. Children are not taught these truths in the schools. You won't find it in typical home-schooling materials right now either.
The Constitution says right in it that the Congress is to issue the money and set the value, not a private bank! There is no way that that can be interpreted away using other powers of Congress either. It's an express, Constitutional requirement rendering the Federal Reserve Act unconstitutional and whether the bought-off US Supreme Court so-called Justices would say so or not. Most of them, even though they're all puffed up with themselves, can't think beyond the bubble. They attained their positions by going along with the scam, not by doing anything good, brave, noble, or truly intelligent.
Don't let the bought-off propaganda artists try to fool you into thinking that this is all too complicated. It's not complicated, and it's not hard. Economics is easy. Only the inner workings of the scam once you are inside the bubble and can't see anything beyond and aren't ever told anything beyond makes things appear to be complicated and hard. It's a fake! Many people know it too, but they are too bought off or cowardly and selfish to say it.
Start clamoring for the national currency to be re-nationalized.
Talk up using new money issued by your government to pay off only those portions of the National Debt that are held by the non-scammers. The scammers need not be rewarded further for their evil dealings. The people owe them nothing except a strong rebuking and to never follow them again.
Talk up a fiat currency that is pegged exactly to real productivity. That's industry that produces real goods and services that people need. It's not loans! It's not what's called finance capitalism. It's not what you think of as Wall Street (even though Wall Street itself is a ghost town in terms of stock brokerage anymore – it's a museum). It is what you think of as "Main Street" and "Mom 'n Pop" and that sort of thing. It's also freeways, not toll ways. It's everything public that you can use and access now without having to open your wallet first. It's public sidewalks. Imagine having to drop coins into a turnstile before you could walk beyond your property. If the banksters get their way, you will be billed by private corporations ultimately controlled by those banksters to do just that, only you won't have coins of tokens but scanners will read the nanoparticles in your body fulltime, everywhere – talk about Big Brother watching you, and Big Brother is not a merciful God but rather Satan incarnate. I kid you not.
