I keep hearing a commercial on the radio that begins with something about how it’s no shame to find yourself inthese days especially with all of the credit card companies who try to lure you into bad debt and banks with their practices…and I think to myself…When do you ever hear the words LURE and PREDATORY without hearing the word CRIME or DEVIANT right after them?
Unless of course you’re an animal in the jungle somewhere where there are jungles and creatures who want to eat you for lunch or dinner.
Once upon a time banks were institutions that existed to help people or communities to grow stronger through savings plans and investments and home or business loans that were affordable and designed to fit your needs and what you could afford.
But that was before luring and preying were decriminalized I guess… Now when the banks do it, it’s our fault for letting them.
Isn’t deregulation great? Whenever our government deregulates something they take the immorality and the illegality right along with it too so that corporations and institutions and people no longer have to worry about whether or not they’re doing the right thing…Just do it! It’s the other guys fault now.
Some folks say that we have too much government and others that we don’t have enough. I say that we just don’t have enough of the right kind of government…
The kind that’s of the people, by the people and for the people…remember that kind?
Eleven score and seventeen years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal…about 1 score and 13 years ago we started to deregulate it…
Now, it seems, all bets are off.
Freedom: It’s what’s for dinner
