46.2 million Americans – that’s 15.1 percent of us – now live in abject poverty. We rescued the Too-Bigs, now they are tossing families into the streets and demolishing their foreclosed homes. People are struggling to survive in tent cities right here in the United States of America. World-class tax dodgers are downsizing and outsourcing us, quite literally, to death. We are considered no more than collateral damage, mere sacrifices upon the Altar of the Almighty Buck.

We’re with you, Alli!

So, to all of the arrogant, avarice-driven, oh-so-entitled, Armani-clad, champagne-swilling vultures who stand a’smirking upon those fancy balconies: Buh-bye!
Can you hear us NOW?
Paul Grignon‘s “Money As Debt” videos do a great job of explaining how we reached this point, illustrating just how large a sinkhole-ridden Ponzi scheme the entire global economy has become, and why moving our money into locally-controlled, non-profit credit unions or small, community banks is a critical step toward ensuring our own survival.
