Enough About Osama Bin Laden

Once in a while I come across a blog post so powerful that I can’t just condense and link to it. It has to be seen in full. This is one of those posts.

Enough About Osama Bin Laden. When Will Wall Street Crooks Go To Jail? Where Are The Jobs?

I’ve heard enough about Osama Bin Laden. He’s dead and gone. It’s too bad it took nearly ten years to catch him.

It’s amazing how the politicians try refocus our attention from Wall Street crooks, unemployment, etc. Sure Osama Bin Laden is big news, but we can’t blame him for everything.

  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t cause the mortgage crisis.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t foreclose on folks and kick them out of their homes.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t ship our jobs to China and Mexico.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t tell us Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t cause the after-tax incomes for the top 1 percent to raise by 281 percent.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t make us cut spending on food for pregnant women and their children.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t propose to put Medicare in the hands of insurance companies.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t tell General Electric they didn’t need to pay taxes.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t invent off-shore tax shelters.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t cause our unemployment problem.
  • Osama Bin Laden didn’t keep us from prosecuting Wall Street crooks.
  • Are you getting the picture?

    Yes Osama Bin Laden was a terrorist and I’m happy he’s out of the picture, but I suggest we might be straining the gnat and swallowing the camel when it comes to putting too much focus on folks like Osama Bin Laden and allowing our home grown pseudo patriot over paid corporate CEO’s and corporate stooge politicians to re-distribute our wealth to the top 1 percent.

    Osama Bin Laden didn’t really need to attack America because our own home grown pseudo patriot over paid corporate CEO’s and corporate stooge, draft dodging politicians already had a plan to destroy America and we are seeing the results of their plan come to fruition.

    To all this I add: Osama Bin Laden didn’t bomb the Qaddafi residence in Libya, killing Qaddafi’s youngest son and the son’s three small children. Bin Laden’s assassination blew the Qaddafi massacre off the news, but I don’t want it forgotten. I don’t know about Qaddafi’s son, but I know for sure that those children didn’t deserve to be killed by America.

    1. I was just screaming this during the evening news. I am very frustrated with the T.V. news lately. I mean they ran a story on “the plan B” of the Bin Laden raid. I don’t want to know what might/could have happened! And even with Qaddafi, they reporting on the most mundane information. The media can be terribly irresponsible.
