Got a call yesterday about an "opinion poll".

What a dishonest bunch of hooey.

The Dems are preparing an all out attack on "wall street" and "big banks" for the upcoming elections.

The first couple questions were basic, then the propaganda started.

Each "question" started with a statement... Like:

"In 2008 wall street and the mega banks almost destroyed our economy and our country with their illegal and reckless activities....
Then the phony question...
How strongly do you support tougher Federal Regulations on the banking industry?

For over 10 minutes they kept hammering the premise that wall street and mega banks are to blame for all our economic woes AND more Federal involvement was the answer.

Finally after 10 minutes of this crap I got this question....
"Since you don't feel that tougher regulations against wallstreet will fix the problem, what suggestions do you think will?"

I asked if it was an open ended answer that I could answer as I liked or did I have to choose one of their pre-written ones.
"uh...answer as you like"

First I explained that the very premise of almost every statement they made to set up their phony "questions" were manipulative lies based on a minute shred of truth. Told him the Socialist class warfare message the Democrats have chosen to run on is a looser and people aren't buying it anymore.
He became a bit argumentative at that point and tried to point fingers at the banks. \:D (yeah right, they are conducting an opinion poll and value my opinion..Ha! )

Told him the problem wasn't the banks or wall street, the problem was our Federal Government is too big, too corrupt, and is selling favors like a crack ho on a Saturday night.

He then asked some questions with a disgusted tone about me being a tea party member. ... "Nope not in a tea party I'm an independent who reads."

Then I got asked how many years of schooling I had finished. \:D

Dude lost interest in my opinions and started asking personal information about my income etc.... That is when I told him it was none of his business and I had to get back to work.

Wonder how long it will take to get my audit letter in the mail..

Something tells me you won't make the nbc poll that has 90% of Americans blaming business and rich people.

Wall Street is the problem, as is DC. Both have worked together since the 1980s (probably before that) to financialize the economy. You can't separate the two.

You should have asked these questions. If the Dems are going after the banks, then why -

Did Bill Clinton repeal Glass-Steagle? Why did Clinton agree with Rubin, Summers and Greenspan to not regulate derivatives? Who is Brooksley Born?

Why does Holder consider the big banks "too big to jail"?

Who is Alexei Aleynikov and why is he the only Goldmanite to do time?

If Obama is so anti bank and Wall St, why were his largest campaign contributors in 8 and 12 Wall St banks

Why won't Obama's SEC do anything about HFT? Why won't Obama's CFTC do anything about gold and silver manipulation on the Comex?

Why hasn't HSBC been criminally prosecuted for laundering drug cartel money?

Why hasn't any bank been prosecuted by the US Justice Dept for manipulating LIBOR or for ex trading?

Yeah right, the Dems are going after the bankers. That pollster needs to follow the money.

Why did Obama surround himself with Rubinites - Summers, Geightner and Lew

Where did Obama's chief of staff Daley come from? Ditto his Sec Treas Lew?

I can set my watch by these shenanigans. Check back at 8:30am Eastern Time. Wall St, the banks (I.e., Fed) and DC have no role in this. Of course not.

Banking makes me want to jump out a window.

Very lucky for me that my bank is only one floor.......
