As many of you know, the Omnibus Spending bill is being "fast-tracked" through Congress. Buried in the 1,600 page bill, (which allowed the public only hours to review), are many destructive "mini-bills". Among these are: the removal of the paltry Dodd-Frank regulations on Big Banks & Wall Street. Also: Federal Pension reductions, (presaging the coming moves to reduce Social Security). Also: FDIC insurance on exorbitant derivatives, which will bilk taxpayers and private bank accounts for many $trillions, once that market bubble crashes - not if - when. There is also a 10x increase in gift allowances for members of Congress. And, there is the global faux-treaty, the TPP, (Trans-Pacific {trade} Partnership), has been cloistered in this bill. All of this is a monumental outrage.

After downed airplanes, Russia, ISIS, Ebola, & race polarisation - there comes the release of the CIA Torture Report. I have been studying the latter, and it is clear to me that this issue was expertly planned to divert attention - into partisan blame-placing, while the Omnibus Spending Bill was being sneaked through, behind the smoke and mirrors. I HAVE to write more on this diversion soon. Please stay tuned.

If any of you can post now about either of these issues - the Spending Bill, (and/or the TPP), and the release of the provocative CIA Torture Report, I urge you to do so.

In the mean time, please follow this selective link to my journal, where I have written about some important issues, with you in mind. 1 - The immanent DERIVATIVES catastrophe. 2 - The suspicious deaths of between 36 and 55 bank CEOs and managers this year. 3 - The TPP - (contains a wealth of links).

I am working on writing additional relevant posts, now that my living situation has improved a little. So feel free to check in on my jnl every now and then. If you have been interested in the current subject of Police Abuse, (& militarisation), you may find several posts via this mm101 link: http://madman101.livejournal.com/tag/police%20%2F%20abuse - I have, in the hopper, a mega-post on this subject, which I hope to get back to finishing soon.

These are dreadful times.

Hopefully, some of you will get active and contact your Congress persons over this Spending Bill, at least!!!

A Canadian Journalist Recalls His Banker Days, Or Was The Soul-For-Cash Exchange Worth It? : In the aftermath of the "Greg Smith" phenomenon, where now a variety of sources (for now of the terminated kind, but soon likely from those still on the payroll) have stepped up against the Wall Street and D.C. omerta, it is assured that we will see many more such pieces before the coolness factor of public employer humiliation. It is our hope that these lead to an actual improvement in America's criminal corporate culture... - http://www.zerohedge.com/news/canadian-journalists-recalls-his-banker-days-or-was-soul-cash-exchange-worth-it

VIDEO: New York City declines to prosecute Naomi Wolf for Occupy arrest:
Guardian - Naomi Wolf will not do hard time for walking on a sidewalk as part of an Occupy Wall Street demonstration last October. New York officials have announced they have declined to prosecute, and the case has been dismissed. Wolf, a Guardian contributor, was arrested in New York after a confrontation with police officers who had set up cordons to restrict the movement of Occupy protesters outside an event for the Huffington Post, to which she also contributes. - http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/us-news-blog/2012/mar/05/new-york-city-naomi-wolf-occupy
