Artificially pacify, dollarize, rebuild infrastructure using crony contractors, anoint lackeys, IMF/World Bank loan with bonds underwritten by TBTF bank and guaranteed by taxpayer, lackeys steal money and deposit it back in TBTF bank, emerging nation can't even pay interest on loan, default, TBTF bank owns all resources and labor in the new nation until next revolution.

Don't mess with a time proven formula.

 Except when they are in danger of defaulting they get Structurally Adjusted Programs (SAP) in which the IMF rolls over the debt via new loans then imposes policies of austerity (entitlement cuts, higher interest rates, lower wages, ect..) and privatization of any national resources and companies that are left. After yrs. of austerity then comes the revolution in which they switch sides and support it or hijack it.

As outrageous as this statement may seem, it's really not.  Someone out there will use it.  I can imagine something similar to the following...

"A free Libya will give humanitarian access to Sudan.  If you are against freeing Libya, you are racist."

Typical US citizen behaviour: displaying a behaviour that has no existence on the spot and stating later the consequences of it.

 

US citizens use race card as an example to show how the use of it is stupid.

Nobody used it save the guys who used it as a way to show how bad it could be. Very US citizen.

The US citizen nature is eternal.

Ya think that actions have consequences?

How about I start a country in which I get 150 years head start, I get to create wealth and you don't, and then after the 150 years we call it all even?  Businesses would love to have a long period in which they can control the market (head start).

Do stupid shit and it'll come back to bite you- blowback.  And that's pretty much what's happening now.  And no, I don't like all the affirmative action stuff either, but it's the price of earlier (stupid) decisions.

US citizens have perfected the art of making money out of blowback.

US citizens look for blowback, they are to antagonizing others, spoiling for a fight.

Bully type. And just like bullies, when the action starts, all the antagonizing done previously does not matter, the US, just like bullies, is always a victim.

When the Constitution gets in the way, just ignore it.

I think George Washington, Benjamin Franklin or maybe even Thomas Jefferson said that.

And what's more, who wants disunity when Constitutional violations are going on?  Spoils the whole centrally planned, global cooperation party.

Would John Boehner please report to the Central Banker party room for the special "gathering" behind the heavy "door"...paging John Boehner.

Senators Raise Concerns on DOJ's Interpretation of PATRIOT
 


1) House and Senate Renew PATRIOT Act With No Modifications

On May 26, the House and Senate renewed three controversial provisions of law related to the USA PATRIOT Act that were set to expire the next day.  The renewal was passed in the form of an amendment to an unrelated bill, S. 990, that itself temporarily extended authorities of the Small Business Administration.  Despite efforts by individual Senators to introduce modifications to the Act's intelligence authorities, the final bill simply renewed the expiring provisions until June 1, 2015 without changes.

I've always thought it ironic that the most treasonous piece of legislation ever enacted in the United States is called the PATRIOT act. I guess patriotism is the last refuge of the traitor.
