Yesterday, we saw the story of the Roussaeu family (see Mammon is Hungry, by Surly), who had been misled, cheated and scammed by Wachovia and Wells Fargo until they had been taken for all of their savings and their home, and until Mr. Roussaeu finally decided to take his own life. Now, his wife and stepson have nowhere left to live, no one left to support them and no possibility of justice against the agents/banks who destroyed their lives. That is simply the type of hyper-consumerist, exploitative culture we have become – one in which the largest, wealthiest and most powerful get away with murder every day and the smallest and most vulnerable bear the weight of all their sins combined.
Today, we present another view of how the business world in America is nothing more than a front for hard-handed Mafioso tactics designed to extract the wealth, spirit and soul from the many and offer them up as a feast for the few. Indeed, there is a very significant chance that our next President, who takes office within a year, will be the King of Callous Wealth Extraction himself – Mitt Romney. Mitt was the CEO of Bain Capital, a VULTURE capitalist fund that conducted leveraged buyouts (i.e. BUST OUTS) of various businesses, ran them into the ground and strip mined all of their assets until there was nothing left.
He intentionally ruined thousands of peoples’ jobs, savings and lives for his own personal gain, and, now, we are actually contemplating making this guy the next President of America. As much as that reflects poorly on the citizen consumers of America, it’s also true that we have been left with no other choices. Right now, it’s between Don Romney and President Obama, and, make no mistake – BOTH of them will be forced to do to America exactly what you see being done in the video below:
