America’s Pussy Riot

I’ve read (and listened to) Kunstler for nearly 20 years, but last week he just lobbed his most powerful grenade yet.

Last week Mr. Obamas Department of Justice dropped its case against Goldman Sachss CDO swindling operations – a case that was served up on a silver platter by the report from Senator Carl Levins Senate subcommittee hearings. Not one lawyer in the entire DOJ took a public stand against that act of gross negligence. Its only the latest in a long string of failures-of-nerve in the desperately needed rescue of legitimacy in American affairs. Every agency head, every person in authority in Mr. Obamas government has evaded the single-most pressing issue of our time. From the center of power to the margins of power and everywhere in between, real masculine courage is absent.

I completely get the general disgust among my liberal friends for Mitt Romney. I have plenty of my own, but I see no reason for excitement or enthusiasm for Obama — for exactly the reason described above. On top of Obama’s failure to roll the heads of Wall Street, he’s continued Bush’s slash and burn of our basic civil liberties. Agent of change, my ass.
