Why don’t more nations follow the example set by Iceland and throw corrupt bankers (financial terrorist) in prison?
I did not know it until I watched this video, but the Federal Reserve protects bankers from certain types of criminal prosecution.
If there are no punishments for breaking the law, what is the deterrent? If bankers can make loans to companies they know are going to fail, then buy the company for pennies on the dollar, what is stopping them from rigging the market?
The more I learn about American banks and the federal reserve, the more I understand how rigged the system truly is. If you want the honest truth, the average working class family has no chance against the banks who can print money out of thin air.
Now that the last bomber has been caught alive, now what?
Since the bombers are mulsim, will there be a backlash against people from the middle east?
Will the public demand aid to the middle east stop?
Since one of the victims was chinese, how will this affect china-USA relations?
Can we expect to see more vigilante attacks on people from the middle east? Unlike nations in the middle east, here in the USA Islam is a minority. Instead of Muslims beating Christians up, Muslims will be the victims of vigilante attacks
In the middle east it seems muslims can inflict violence on all over religions with no fear of retaliation. But here in the USA things are opposite in middle east. If a muslim does some kind of attack, non-muslims take revenge on other muslims, and even people that are mistaken for muslims.
Someone on facebook sent me a message and asked what I thought about the Boston bombing.
Short answer – what happened was terrible and I hope the SOB that did this is brought to justice.
Medium answer – How do we find justice for killing and maiming others?
Is putting someone in prison justice?
Is putting someone to death for killing others justice?
Lets take Timothy McVeigh for an example. Did putting him to death bring justice to those he killed and/or injured? At the time putting Timothy McVeigh to death may have sounded like a good idea. But in the long run I think he got off light. Timothy McVeigh is dead, and we still have to live with the memory of what he did.
How do we find justice for people who had their legs blown off, or had a son killed, or had a daughter killed?
Putting someone in prison is not justice, that is punishment.
As most of us have forgotten, on Feburary 19th, 1942 Executive Order 9066 signed by franklin d. roosevelt allowed Japanese-Americans to be detained without due process.
Never forget, never again.
The problem is, it can happen again. All the US government has to do is point at someone, say they are a terrorist, and that person can be detained forever without due process. By due process, I mean having their day in court. There is no formal charges, no hearing for bail,,, no nothing. the person is arrested, sent off to a camp, and never heard from again.
Why has the US government granted itself the authority to detain people without due process. I don’t know which one is more dangerous to national stability, an overzealous government, or foreign enemies.
Why would the government fear due process? Why not give the person their day in court?
During the Cold War, we could point and Russia and say “they are the enemy”. Today, it sees the US government points at everyone and says “they are the enemy”.
When the founding fathers created this great nation, they knew what they did not want to become. Due to the atrocities committed upon the 13 colonies by the king of England, the founding fathers knew what an oppressive government was. From that starting point, a system of checks and balances were put into place to ensure the rights of the people would be protected.
Executive Order 9066 signed by franklin d. roosevelt was challenged in court. The supreme court failed to protect the people from an overzealous government. That is what the founding fathers did not want. When the system of balances fails to protect the people, the people can only blame themselves. When a Republic fails, its due to an uneducated voting populace.
While the people blindly voted to same two parties into office, those two parties conspired to strip the people of the rights. While the people slept, the US government declared war on its own citizens.
