Okay, well as you might deduce from the title of the article. I'm not real concerned about hearing the propaganda for electing Romney. I've listened to him, observed him, considered his ways of doing business, considered his beliefs in the religion he professes, watched the lies continue to pour out of him, like a desperate criminal whose only chance of being accquitted is to convince everyone that his lies are true, and they shouldn't believe the truth they should believe his lies.
Why Mitt is just a good ole boy, who is worth millions. You know he earned every penny of it. He never caused others to suffer for his gain, never cheated anyone or leveraged a companys' assets in order to make money and then forced the company and the lenders to lose money and their futures by declaring bankruptcy. You know something about GW Bush and Mitt are the same. They say they were business people with experience running a business. Yeah both of them took businesses and ran them into bankruptcy while personally making money from it !! Oh and yeah I can provide links. So if you want proof go to some of my past articles about Romney and look at the links about his business dealings. Look up GW Bush's business history. A real loser, just like Romney.
Self centered con men out to make as much as they can, while not caring about the lives they destroy all around them. The right wing propaganda spewers believe in that kind of America. Where wealth and power make cheating people out of their lifes hard work acceptable. Don't believe it ?? Read this links' article about the Bush's during Reagans presidency.
The S&Ls, the Mob and the Bushs
During the 1980's hundred of Savings and Loan Banks failed. Those bank failures cost U.S. taxpayers over $500 billion to cover federally insured losses, and much more to investigate the bank failures (Pizzo, Fricker, and Muolo, 1989; Brewton, 1992; Johnston, 1990). More than 75% of the Savings and Loan insolvencies where directly linked to serious and often criminal misconduct by senior financial insiders (Pizzo, Fricker and Muolo, 1989: 305). In fact, less than 10 percent of bank failures are related to economic conditions, the rest are caused by mismanagement or criminal conduct (Pizzo, Fricker and Muolo, 1989: 305).
A good example of the Savings and Loan failures can be found in the activities of Mario Renda, a Savings and Loan insider who often worked in close collaboration with organized crime (Pizzo, Fricker and Muolo, 1989: 123-126;302). Renda served as a middle man in arranging about $5 billion a year in deposits into 130 Savings and Loans, all of which failed (Kwitny, 1992: 27). Many of these deposits were made contingent on an agreement that the Savings and Loan involved would lend money to borrowers recommended by Renda, many of whom were organized crime figures or people entirely unknown to the banking institution involved (Kwitny, 1992: 27).
Equally good examples of financial misconduct in the Savings and Loan scandal is found in the activities of the Bush family. In some cases Bush family members helped skim Savings and Loan funds which were delivered to outsiders as a part of deals involving lucrative payoffs to bank directors. In other cases, members of the Bush family intervened to influence decisions involving highly speculative and unsound investments involving loans that would not be repaid if the venture was not profitable. And finally, the Bush family’s political connection served to protect those guilty of misconduct in the Savings and Loan scandal (Kwitny, 1992: 24). ...
George Bush, Jr.: Insider Information, Oil, and Baseball
The present President Bush has also reaped significant benefits from some highly questionable business practices:
Bush sold $828,560 worth of Harken stock [on June 20, 1990] just one week before the company stock posted unusually poor quarterly earnings and Harken stock plunged sharply. Shares lost more than 60% of their value over 6 months. When Bush sold his shares, he was a member of a company committee studying the effect of Harken’s restructuring, a move to appease anxious creditors. According to documents on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, his position on the Harken committee gave Bush detailed knowledge of the company’s deteriorating financial condition. The SEC received word of Bush’s trade eight months late. Bush has said he filed the notice but that is was lost (Hedges, 1992: 57-59).
At the time of the stock sale President Bush was fully aware that Harken Energy was in a serious cash flow crisis and was about to lose millions of dollars (Yost, 2000). Bush was investigated for insider trading, but on October 18, 1993, Bruce A. Hiler, the SEC’s associate director for enforcement, wrote a letter to Bush’s lawyer stating that “the investigation has been terminated as to the conduct of Mr. Bush, and that, at this time, no enforcement action is contemplated with respect to him” (Lardner and Romano, 1999: A1). Hiler’s official letter went on to say that it “must in no way be construed as indicating that the party has been exonerated or that no action may ultimately result from the staff’s investigation” (Lardner and Romano, 1999:) It is instructive to note that head of the SEC at the time of investigation was a supporter of then-President Bush, as was the SEC’s general counsel (who later acted as George W. Bush’s private attorney) (Yost 2000). In addition, Harken, despite its poor performance and large losses, paid unusually high salaries and benefits to President Bush (Hedges, 1992: 57-59). Bush was allowed to purchase stock options at a 40% discount, paid for by company loans that were frequently forgiven (Hedges, 1992:
There is much more in this link that just paints a picture of the corruption of the Bushes as well. You may ask why I would bring that up since Bush isn't running. It is to show the consistency of the GOP for the last 31 years. Since Reagan took office this kind of crap has been going on and on. Now they want to put Romney in office when he has shown he's not afraid to bankrupt and strip companies for his financial gain.
Yet they will try to tell us it is good for America ??? Really Really ????? I don't think so. I remember when Americans could live a decent life and buy a home. Most Americans right now can't even find work that pays well enough to rent a home, let alone save for a home. Yet the GOP/TP offers us someone who outsorces American jobs as his way to make money !!!
Yeah !!! That is the GOP/TP'ers who can't even see their own stupidity in their supporting this. It doesn't help them as most of them are not wealthy in the least. It in fact hurts them and America as it only continues to lower wages here and make our work less profitable to the workers while giving larger profits to the corporations.
Also, one must consider that we the tax payer pay for all the crap they do in the long run !! So all this criminal activity, we the tax payers pay for it. While they the GOP/TP lawmakers give the tax breaks to the wealthy who commit the crimes and allow them to profit from the financial malfeasance they claim they need in order to stay here and do business !!!
I say get the F*** out then but we are keeping a percentage of your wealth. You earned it here and there is a cost of doing business in America. Pay your taxes or go to prison and forfeit your wealth !!! These clowns believe we are not worthy of dealing with honestly. They believe that wealth and the accumulation of it is what is important. They are wrong !!!
We have a chance to kick their lying butts out of congress as well as re-elect president Obama and assure that they will not continue to destroy America !!! It is my considered opinion that if you love America, you must vote for America and not the globalism of the GOP/TP'ers.
Romney is a globalist as shown by his business pursuits and the end of the financial trail. His money is mostly out of America, so are his business interests.
President Obama is an American with the understanding of America's place in the world. We are a leader, not the only leader as Romney and right wing globalists would try to paint us as. We must compete, but also have the moral high ground. Romney has none of the moral high ground nor the answers to Americans competition questions. He sees the answers as us taking less pay for more work while the costs to us continue to climb.
