Try to control your temper as you watch this PBS FRONTLINE documentary aptly named “The Warning”.
Well the great triumvirate is gone but now there are others who are trying to do it again to another brilliant and knowledgeable women, Elizabeth Warren [photo to left]. Please look into this and convince yourself as I have that we need to rein in the greedy narcissists on Wall Street and their buddies in congress.
We can't think Republican or Democrat here. There is too much money flying around to both parties. Google "Elizabeth Warren" and please do a little homework and look into the background of Elizabeth Warren, the “Congressional Oversight Panel” and the "Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)". If you come up with a reason not to have Warren as head of the CFPB please let the rest of know what it is.
Here is a dialogue between David Gregory and Mitch McConnell on “Meet the Press” Sunday May 29, 2011.
David Gregory: Elizabeth Warren, would you back her or would you join Republicans to block her nomination?
McConnell: Well we’re pretty unenthusiastic about the possibility of Elizabeth Warren … uh … we’re pretty unenthusiastic frankly about this new agency and we’ve sent a letter to the President saying some changes need to be made in the CFPB, the Consumer Financial Protection Board, because as it’s currently constituted it answers to no one and I think could be a serious threat to our financial system.
Here are a couple of links illustrating her knowledge and brilliance. Even the pundits are overwhelmed.
She is obviously so much more knowledgeable than the other people on the panel. This nation needs Elizabeth Warren.
Listen to her put these two pundits in their place and talk their language about how ridiculous the current regulating agencies are.
Here’s an indication that she won’t be pushed around but she needs help. She has to become known to everyone in the U.S. The electorate has to understand how brilliant and knowledgeable she is. She could be the savior of this country’s economy if given the power to EFFICIENTLY and CONSTRUCTIVELY regulate Wall Street as only she can.
Here are some things you can do thanks to the Coffee Party Annabel and Eric <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
1) Write to President Obama, and demand that he not be bullied. He must nominate Elizabeth Warren to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He knows that she is the most qualified for the job. In two days, we have already sent over 1,000 letters.
2) Write to Congress, and let them know that we want strong consumer protection. An independent agency with Elizabeth Warren as the director can be the start of a firewall protecting us from abusive banking practices that led to the financial crisis of 2008. In two weeks, we've already sent 14,000 letters.
3) Join the thousands of Americans who have commented on Patrick McHenry's Facebook page to let him know how we feel about bullying and corruption.
I have two issues that I intend to spend the rest of my life promoting:
1. Political Transparency
2. Electorate Education
I believe that the solution to these two issues, by definition, solves all the other problems in our government.
I may need some help.
