20 Inarguable Facts You Need To Know About The U.S. Economy

Want to know how Congress and Washington get away with screwing you every day? It’s simple: Stupidity.

A Pew Research Center poll released on Sunday (7/22) shows the following amazing results:

  • 47 percent of those polled believe the TARP program was entirely created and implemented by President Barack Obama.
  • 52 percent of those polled believe that the Glass-Steagall Act was the law that created Welfare, Food Stamps and Unemployment Insurance.
  • 43 percent believe that the majority of TARP funds were paid to consultants and advisors of Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

So, rather than rant about the grotesque ignorance of the people who participated in this poll, I’m just going to provide some incontrovertible facts about the Troubled Asset Relief Program, and the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933.

What you do with this factual information is your business.

Gary, I tend to agree with the thrust of your post. There is a George Washington quote that goes something like, ‘freedom/country can only be maintained by a politically active and informed citizenry’, something like that.

I am aware that many don’t keep up with politics, read the news, etc, but it seems impossible that anyone could ignore the level to which our gov’t is bought and sold by the Corpocracy.

One can postulate that if Newt had become president, thanks to his casino friend, there would be a representative from the Macau casino consortium sitting on the town council of every town USA.

People must know that we are 16T in debt and have some question as to how we will pay that off.

If the people are aware they must be alright with it as there are no serious talk of 3rd parties, etc. We do have cspan. It’s not that hard, IMO.

Really gets me going that folks aren’t up in arms over Article V Convention. Seems we are doing a retest of the ole frog in hot water theory.

Otherwise, we have the Corpocracy we deserve.
