Vassals of Wall Street Won Nothing They Can Keep - Their Wealth is Already Corrupted

in response to reader comment: Wall Street has won ... as always

Methinks you give Wall Street too much credit; or that the powers that be have any power over Candidate Obama. Wall Street has little or no power over Candidate Obama and Candidate Obama's oblique disdain and loathing for Wall Street are overpowered by his own sense that he thinks he knows better than they do what America needs. The health or survival of such are not on his priority list by this estimation.

The earlier observation of his collusion with Islamic sensibilities is closer to the mark, especially when viewed with the outcomes of any of the Arab uprisings. Benghazi would be a more arguable example.

Candidate Obama's familiarity with Chicago style politics is a better source of insight into the machinations that produced the results America is seeing the day after. While there are some that see nothing except some innocuous connections with the financiers behind the Wall Street scenes, those political favors were not for the investors, but for the base support that were bailed out the same time the institutions like GM were as one example.

The free that are categorized as parasites are definitively not free; they are slaves to their plots of financial overthrow of things not only in America, but worldwide in order to enrich themselves at the expense of the victims of their plotting. There are under Scriptural notice that if they do not repent, cease and desist, their expectation of riches will be left to those who survive them, for those riches will not be available in the afterlife.

That Wall Street won might have some validity in the context that they gamble on schemes concocted to produce a return on the investments; but there is a big caution – Wall Street is vulnerable to their own compunctions and they cannot escape the big bubble they have created for themselves. When true wealth is not being created by true productivity and they are compelled to extract the wealth of others through inequitable misappropriation of public trust monies, the time is quickly upon them when there is none left and they themselves become vulnerable targets of others with envies that cannot be stopped.

In could get scriptural and provide the descriptions of the mechanisms of their folly; but we'll not belabor that now. Let it be sufficient to say, what goes around comes around and that time is already upon them.
