Has a ‘Katrina Moment’ Arrived?
Frank, let me help you with this....Katrina was "the Katrina moment". Obama is just part of the clean up crew, buddy. Obama is the new king, but the king still has no clothing. It's not about the man, we've been in a steady descent for the past 7 years..."The Katrina Moment" as you put it, was just the moment when the country realized how impotent and corrupt our government had actually become.
It seems like you're looking for Obama's jugular.....but shit bro.....we're all feeding off a dead carcass here. Obama didn't kill it, he's just trying to convince the rest of us it isn't really dead.
What made Jon Stewart’s takedown of Jim Cramer resonate was less his specific brief against CNBC’s cheerleading for bad stocks than his larger indictment of the gaping economic inequality that defined the bubble.
I thought it resonated because Stewart was the first person with a national audience to brush past CNBC's complicity in manipulating the market for naked short sellers. If you want to call it the "gaping economic equality"....that's cool....my mind is still trying to wrap itself around exactly what the fuck that means....but hey...I appreciate the semantic creativity.
The only MSM outlet that's coming close to exposing the truth of what has actually happened in our financial market is The Daily Show. If you want to see the really nasty stuff....go here:
