O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of of… g-g-gra-a-ain
For purple m-mountain ma-ma-majesties
How I looted is pla-a-a-ain! Bain Capital! Bain Capital!
Shed your jobs for me
And crowned my hood a 1/4 billion good
For me me shining me
You have been hearing in the news about what amounts to a $3 billion bet by JP Morngan/Chase…which they lost. The totals grows day-by-day. I just wrote to to the president and my federal elected officials asking for protection from financial collapse. Please follow me andclick HERE to write the letter below (example) or use your own words. You will be taking to CONGRESS.ORG where you can easily write to Congress:
The recent news that JP Morgan Chase lost at least $2 billion in a matter of weeks on hugely risky bets shows once again that we need to rein in Wall Street and stop the banks from gambling with our money. For over half a century, the Depression-era law known as the Glass-Steagall Act kept commercial banks (where we have our checking accounts, saving accounts and the like) separate from high-risk investment banks. The government agreed to insure the deposits we make in commercial banks through the FDIC, but banks weren’t allowed to turn around and use these deposits as stakes in the Wall Street casino. That all changed in 1999 with the repeal of Glass-Steagall, which paved the way for the financial crisis and the massive Wall Street bailouts. WE NEED A NEW GLASS/STEAGALL AND THE VOLCKER RULE SOONER THA 2014. IT’S BANKING…BUT IT IS ALSO HOMELAND SECURITY.

In the United States, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. It falls near the end of Armed Forces Week, which begins on the second Saturday of May and ends on the third Sunday of May.
The first Armed Forces Day was celebrated by parades, open houses, receptions and air shows. In 1962, President Kennedy established Armed Forces Day as an official holiday. The United States’ longest running city-sponsored Armed Forces Day Parade is held in Bremerton, Washington. In 2009, Bremerton celebrated the 61st Armed Forces Day Parade().
Because of their unique training schedules, National Guard and Reserve units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any period in May. [Wikipedia]
