Obama "doesn't make any sense at all"

Arianna Huffington appeared on Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" Tuesday to discuss Obama's recent move to review federal regulations agencies and his assertion that deregulation will create jobs.

Olbermann asked Arianna if she thought the president's move was "political pandering, some sort of sincere idea for job growth, or something else?"

Arianna responded that it seems the president has one priority on his mind. "It shows that his primary, maybe his exclusive preoccupation right now, is reelection," she said. "Because there is no other explanation. Obviously he wants businesses to stop just giving to Republicans and start contributing once again to his reelection campaign as they did in 2008, especially Wall Street."

She continued that she believes Obama's effort to deregulate regulation agencies "just doesn't make any sense at all. We need to have a big debate on how to save American capitalism."

I would like to inform Arianna Huffington, Keith Olbermann, Barack Obama, and the American people that American capitalism does no longer bear any resemblance at all to the fairness and equality that Jefferson and Franklin had in mind for this nation.

Are we aware that we have become, instead, a global monument to and advocate of the most extreme despotism in world history?  We ought be ashamed of ourselves (2) for abandoning Jefferson's democracy for extremist despotism in the name of people like Bernie Madoff, Rupert Murdoch, and Warren Buffet.

It is true, 'The American Dream Is For Sh*t.'  "Nearly 1 in every 4 U.S. homeowners with mortgages owe more on their home than it's worth." (2)

Bill Maher informs us that when Egypt and Tunisia overcome the entrenched money and powers that have kept them down for so long, "They must inform us how they did  it." (3)

American capitalism no longer has anything to do with American democracy. While we are being asked to explore "the middle ground between Science and Religion (4), there simply is no middle ground between science and religion, nor is there any middle ground between democracy and religion, not for over two millennia since Greece. Democracy was birthed by the natural science and natural philosophy that has been replaced the past half century with JudeoRoman despotism.

The United States is a failure. Jefferson's American Democracy is for the entire world, as he well knew.
