Austerity for the masses, free money for the banksters, or we're all dooooommmmmmmeeeeedddddd!!!!!
So says The Economist.
Frankly the doomed part might be right if the Euro Zone goes under.
Or even if it just hits a deep recession and tilts the rest of the world into the abyss with it.
But it's these same arrogant assholes who are clamoring for bankster bailouts or we're going to see Lehman 2.0 x 2 who caused all this shit in the first place.
How come the austerity comes for the masses, but the banksters and hedge fund criminals who caused all of this stuff get to ride off on huge waves of free, newly minted cash?
I'm not an economist, I'm not a political scientist, I'm just an English teacher with a skeptical nature, but my sense is that these people have no idea what the fuck they're doing, are making things worse rather than better with all these imposed austerity measures, and when the Lehman 2.0 x 2 crash comes, the disorder and chaos that is set to be unleashed is going to make the Great Depression look like the Eisenhower Fifties.
No wonder they're clamping down so hard and heavy on the Occupy encampments and such.
And no wonder they're unleashing all that Homeland Security technology on the Occupy people.
They know, man.
And they're scared.
Imagine what happens if we get Lehman 2.0 x 2?
People are pissed and living in fear already.
And some are finally waking up to not only how dire the circumstances are, but just who it was who caused this mess in the first place.
People aren't going to put up with this bailout for the banksters/austerity for the masses shit a second time.
And they're going to come looking for the arrogant assholes who caused the disaster.
