Seceding Separating From Wall Street
Texas Governor Rick Perry was a bust in the Republican Presidential primaries, but I credit him — sort of — for coming up with the best (and possibly last) solution to this country’s “Wall Street problem.”
Namely, what to do about an out-of-control, parasitic, havoc-wreaking, corrupt (and corrupting) segment of the economy and — dare I say — broader culture. (Yes, I know, but what do I REALLY think about them??).
It was Perry, of course, who threatened a Texas secession in response to out-of-control, “Socialist” policies emanating from Washington.
Not really viable, but he was definitely on to something.
With real financial reform off the table; no accountability whatsoever for egregious lawbreaking; and a political and regulatory system that can only be called thoroughly “captured” by said Wall Street interests . . . what’s left to be done?
Take a page from Perry’s playbook (no more “P’s” . . . promise 🙂 ).
Namely . . . figure out a way to separate the rest of the country from Wall Street.
Hey, Apple, Facebook, Amazon.com, Twitter, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, and Costco (yes, Costco).
I bet there’s some money in it if you figure out how.
