"'You've got these companies sitting on trillions of dollars in cash,' said Karl Rove, architect of Republican George W. Bush's two presidential victories. 'Why are they not spending it? Because they are afraid of what's coming and they don't want to be left short.'"
What a bunch of horse manure that is. They have had the money parked at the Fed earning interest. They used a bunch of the money to pay bonuses. They used a bunch of it to game the carry-trade system. They used a bunch more to consolidate their monopoly stranglehold on the American people and whole world by buying up better but smaller competitors, buying up market share so they can set prices against you: the "little" people.
They are now clamoring for entitlement cuts to "balance the budget" on the backs of the people they've already raped via the whole crash-and-bailout Ponzi scheme that is the whole house of cards called Wall Street. They want to keep inflation down via unemployment to keep down wages so they can rape and rape and rape and keep the "value" of the money they stole via Henry Paulson at the US Treasury and Ben Bernanke at the Fed and Alan Greenspan before him and Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner now in the Obama administration. They are all liars and criminals. This is kleptocracy by the plutocrats for whom Karl Rove works. They butter his bread. He kisses up to them. They give him the microphone to try to dupe you into believing the biggest lie on the planet that is that the superrich create wealth. They stymie the creation of real abundance. Wake up!
The country was doing vastly better before their kind came along and took the people via their confidence games. The sooner you throw them all out the better. Clean the Temple! Let them all repent.
Karl Rove speaks evil. As for brains, is he even one step up from Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck?
