Alan: Of course, it's not about truth. It's about Trump representing a "Fuck You Finger" to The Establishment.
Tragically, the working class cares so little about truth that it doesn't matter where Trump's finger is going next.

What Happened With "Poverty" During The Obama Administration

Alan: Although this chart suggests that poverty remained constant during Obama's tenure, it actually declined by 5.5%.

That's more than one in twenty poor people who are no longer poor.





Financial Regulation Rein In The Banks, Or Let The Market Work. (How "The Scam" Works)

Alan: Make no mistake. 

The "Free Market" works.

It works to create "boom-bust cycles" that benefit the rich because only the rich are positioned to profit whether markets are booming or busting.

Here's the deal...

First, The 1% makes money "running markets up." 

And then they make money "running markets down."

The bottom line is this: the rich profit even more by booming AND busting.

Take Trump as an example. 

Devious Donald has always been clear about his love for bad markets because, in his particular market, the collapse of real estate value provides opportunity to "buy low," knowing full well that "when the market turns" he'll be able to "sell high."

When the rich use "the free market" to arrange "boom-bust cycles," they literally make out like bandits because they are robbing the value that gets lost in down markets.

Only the rich have enough money to buy ravaged assets whose value is depleted during plunging markets.

You, on the other hand, lose everything you've got.

During "economic busts" The 1% scavenge the ruins.

And you, my friend, are left holding the (empty) bag.
