Right now fingers are being pointed, wagged, and extended in all directions.
Angry fingers. Righteous fingers.
Who knew what, when?!
Who said something?!
Who actually tried to do something?!
Well, in all directions except one.
Turns out the very people who are currently trying to “fix” this financial clusterfuck… are the very ones that caused this financial clusterfuck.
And can we really expect the Government and their benefactors to investigate themselves?
Sure, they’ll pretend to. But it’s all empty gesture. Sans substance. Theatre.
But the truth is out there. And we can thank our meth addict of a 24-7 news cycle for that.
So where are the clips?
Where are the told-ya-so soundbytes?
Where’s the proof?
Don’t hold your breath.
The emperor has no clothes, a small dick and a bad herpes outbreak.
The Government teed it up, and Wall Street knocked it out of the park.
But let’s not waste time by pointing fingers.
It doesn’t matter how this happened, it only matters what we do next.
Let’s just agree that everyone screwed up, and move forward.
It would be almost funny if it weren’t the exact polar opposite of funny.
Government changed the rules, and then acts surprised as the market finds ways to stay in business, and even profit.
But, really. Can a white knight in shining armor really save the princess if he was the one kidnapped her, raped her, stole her money, and left her for dead?
He’ll sure try.
