At this point, I'm not sure what was the biggest con job. But one thing we know for sure - the MSM bought it all, hook, line and sinker.

The mainstream media is completely worthless. That's the primary reason why HousingPanic, HuffingtonPost and a slew of other blogs became so damn relevant.

When Reagan got elected, the govt. stopped breaking up trusts and monopolies. In fact, it encouraged them by changing the laws (at the request of corporate America).

We now have concentrated media ownership. The 6 or 7 major "news" companies now control about 90% of what is left of print and television media. These corporate terrorists have mostly fired all the real journalists. What's left are people who print what they are told.

Print news is dead. Television news, that was dead before Reagan came into office.

Same shit, different day.


37.5% unemployment as US businesses continue to fold, stocks drop, and loan defaults SURGE as the great bush/cheney depression II kicks into over-drive.

Hell, we saw the con job starting back at bush's bull-shit election in 2001.

GW: "Daddy, daddy, Florida says we lost the election by 345 votes, and they want a recount of votes because it's to close to call."

HW: "Thats OK son, we dont need to follow the f*cking rules of this country, we can just use the supreme court to DECIDE WHO WON. Hell son, dont forget all our buddies own all the major TV, Radio and Newspaper networks too! FUck the American people, we're going to invade the middle east and drop shit loads of bombs, rob the banks, pump and dump the real estate industry, create a finacial crises and steal billions and billions of tax dollars for all our GOP war regime buddies."

GW: "Yeah, that's like robbing a country blind! Yee-haa! I cant wait for our fake attack on America too! I'll be a hero! We'll pump fear into the mass public year-after-year, and the idiot blind christian churches will think I'm jesus on a mission to kill the forces of evil!"

HW: "Way to go son. You'll do a fine job destroying America and the entire world. I can count on you and Dick and the rest of the republican party! "

GW: He-he-he....snicker..."And we'll get paid to do it too!"

HW: "I'm so proud of you son."

Easy - Obama - by a mile and a half. Biggest MSM circle jerk in history, and it continues to this day.

MSM is a tool of the elites.

It supplies info-tainment to misdirect public attention from corrupt insider activities.

Its demise is richly deserved.

What's interesting about that Krugman/McCulley quip about "housing bubble to replace Nasdaq bubble" is NOT that it came several months AFTER the housing market had REALLY started to take off, and YEARS after the housing market had been clearly humming along nicely.

No, the really interesting thing is that he was complaining about the stock market, and just a very few short weeks later, the market was at the VERY BOTTOM from which it then took off and nearly doubled into 2007. (And it was a double bottom, with the first bottom being nearly as low and only a month BEFORE the article.)

If Krugman sold all his stocks and bought real estate on the day of his article, it kinda was a good-news/bad-news situation for him LOL.

Obama haters are like tiny minded children. Their guys broke America into a million little pieces and they dare complain about how the adults are trying to cobble things back together.

Let's talk about the current con job who is giving more power to the feds. And you have bought it line hopok and sinker.

Good job posting the McGuire-Sosa steroid juiced fraudsters.

Man what a couple of chemically sodden assholes.

So how did taking your realtors advice turn out?

At the hearing in 2005, Sosa testified that “everything” he had heard “about steroids and human growth hormones is that they are bad for you, even lethal” and that he “would never put anything dangerous like that” in his body.

“To be clear,” he added, “I have never taken illegal performance-enhancing drugs. I have never injected myself or had anyone inject me with anything.”

I do not like Obama.

I never voted for Bush.

Obama was a US Senator and had his hands in the mess too.

Who has the pea brain?

The biggest con job happened years ago when the U.S. government afforded citizens the ability to write off interest payments made on their home mortgages.

This ridiculous tax policy is patently unfair and should be repealed.

But that would mean that "owing" for a home would become less expensive, and the privalege of renting would become more expensive.

Wait. Let's be careful here, because we just might do something that involves something called..oh I keep forgetting what they call it...common sense?

Your Very good at these type of posts Keith, stick to these.

Not only did the media 'buy' it, they were part of the architects of the scam. Who owns the media? Well, the answer tells you everything you need to know about their involvement.
