News you can't use and could probably care less about
Credit Suisse and JP Morgan Chase get a slap on the wrist while millions lost their homes and just about everything else all while the banks are still make billions in profits. Here's an idea. Burn the banksters houses down and let them live in a cardboard box. And now we know why Bonnie and Clyde were looked on as heros.
Palestine verses Israel. Sitting there minding their own business when Israel takes out some of their leaders. Last I checked that is an act of war. And now Israel is blaming the Palestinians. Give me a break. The bully beats you up then blames you and wants to round up his posse to do it again. This is not to mention all the land they stole over the last 40 years.
Greece is set for another general strike on Nov 22. This would coincide with the Walmart walkout at 1000 stores here in the U.S. I'd say greed has gone too far with these guys. Top wages for an average Walmart worker? About $22,000 a year. Try raising a family on that. Greece on the other hand just had another round of tax hikes and pension cuts after having their taxes raised 29% just a few months ago. Is it true? Can you squeeze blood out of a turnip?
Syria continues to be Syria. The background in all that is so complicated it would take a rocket scientist to explain it. Because it involves Suunis, Kurds, Shiites, Alwates, Iranian fighters, Salafists, and backers from Russia, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran, the U.S. and who knows who else. I'd bet the only ones making any profit from this are the arms dealers and the undertakers.
