Elizabeth Warren: Our Economic Cassandra

This vid dated almost exactly two years ago. It is almost an hour long. After listening, you will never again be excused for sitting quietly by and listening to some moron complaining that "Nobody could have EVER seen that coming."

Warren is far and away smarter, more critical, more lucid a thinker, and more humane a person than anyone in ANY position of authority in Prez. Shamwow's regime. She is the ONLY one with NO POWER.

If Prez. S were serious about reforming the conditions that resulted in the recent melt-down, he'd give her a real job. That he doesn't/didn't/hasn't/won't speaks volumes.

But, Woody, the ShamWow really works, y'know?

I agree, Sparkle. It "works." But what does it do? Absorbs stuff. Which it is my firm belief it is "thePrez" true job. To 'absorb' all the latent rage, dissatisfaction, and disappointment that is manifest out there in the teabaggers and tenthers and birthers. They were getting close to starting to blame the (white) oligopoly for their troubles. Obama gives them somebody to hate who only accidentally belongs to the owner's class...
