"In a time of universal
deceit, telling the truth
is a revolutionary act."
- George Orwell
Dylan Ratigan was the one pundit on cable news
that actually had substance and truth coming out of his mouth.
This clip of Ratigan erupting on live TV is from
a couple months before Obama's reelection,
but the facts and numbers he goes over
in this video are genuine and accurate,
and are just as relevant today as the day it was broadcast.
The video segment exposes issues in our
political, financial, trading, and taxing systems
which are well known to those within the systems
yet the problems are routinely dismissed, avoided or ignored.
Those with the power to make these situations better
are occupied creating purposefully distracting scandals,
grandstanding, and endlessly pretending to be
doing something productive or beneficial for the country
while the reality is that these politicians are doing
just about anything EXCEPT the things they were
actually elected or appointed to do.
