    There are two kinds of people in this world:
    People who just want to be left alone, and
    People who won't leave them alone.

    "There ain't no countries no more."
    from the movie They Live

    I haven't watched the video, but I have been screaming about the evils of limited liability for a very long time. The process of incorporation lays off accountability; that is why the bad guys get away with such severe and inexcusable exploitation. This is what is known as the 'corporate veil', it allows for the responsible parties to function in their communities without having to answer for their actions. There is no check on immorality, unkindness, and greed.
    Management: "We have to do what's best for the company/shareholders, you are all fired and our operations are moving to Bangladesh."
    Employees: "Who are the shareholders?
    Management: "There are thousands of them."

    Ever stop to think how much harder it would be to exploit people if the one responsible for the exploitation could be pinpointed and confronted? That person would have to face his community at work, in church, at the supermarket, at the bank...etc. Limited liability is just a clever scheme to circumvent consequence.

    Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. <br />And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.<br />Mark 16-17

    I hear ya, and agree completely.

    Remember Barnacle Bob? He had posted about CAFR and Walter Burien way back. I'd forgotten about it.

    That's what the OP video is about.

    Here's another shorter video with Burien.

    I am almost embarrassed that I hadnt come to the obvious conclusion that they must take tax money and invest it...it is like a huge hedge fund that municipal, state and federal corporations dont have to pay investors on! Just take profits and accumulate assets.

    And the truly mind numbing part is every kep player in washinghtin knows this how it works

    Knows that money is bursting from the seams

    Yet still goes before the people and screams

    WE ARE BROKE AND YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP MORE IF YOU WANT A "RECOVERY"

    Only a Sociopath can hold two diametrically oppsosed contructs so massive in their head at the same time and sleep well at night in the knowledge of it.
