Links to re-posts — share the wealth!!
I’m not sure this is the right forum to put this in, but it can be re-located if needed. The idea is that we can use this part of the forum to show where we’ve gone out to other websites and linked or posted Chris’s material (within approved use limitations, of course.)
I just copy/pasted Chris’s latest blog entry on Citibank’s huge giveaway (with no strings) to Ticker Forum. TF has a large thread from a week ago where many people there piled on GM, essentially validating the premise that they should be called on the carpet for "not flying coach" to the meeting – pure demagoguery and press manipulation, if you ask me – and I thought Chris’s latest was an excellent counterpoint. It shows how exactly we are "undone" by our press and liberal establishment – trillions scot-free to the banksters, and not a farthing to industry.
There are very good reasons why they flew there in private jets (which should be obvious upon giving the matter even a little thought) and many other good reasons why Citibank (and the other banksters) should be challenged on many premises rather than given carte blanche with tax dollars and future obligations. This was just too powerful a contrast not to make it strongly, imo.
So here’s the link to Ticker Forum. I think it will be interesting to see how Chris’s column is received. If nothing else, it provides a barometer of how these ideas are received in the larger community of traders and retailers who follow TF. Your comments are welcome.
This is EXACTLY what this section is for. I need to post a sticky, but essentially, any syndication, forum posts, blog replies, blog entries, etc., should be posted here.
As far as Chris’ post, I just read it. I couldn’t agree more with your comments about the "private jet" scrutiny. This is EXACTLY the type of thing that can be latched onto by a malicious media (not to mention the power manipulators) and twisted to cast the big 3 CEOs as greedy, careless, hypocrites undeserving of any public support The last part of that is true, but it is even more true for the Citi CEOs who were essentially welcomed as distressed heroes. Somehow, I doubt we will see an SNL skit on that one…
Thanks for the link.
There are a number of sites and blogs that I’d been posting on, but keep in mind that this was long before any talk of a Chris Martenson brigade, so they were just casual mentions (I intend to be a little more attentive to the presentation in the future):
Also posted similar opinion type shoutouts at-
Both are popular conventional Canadian based news sites- although I can’t seem to find the links to them, maybe they purge it after a while?
I also wrote to http://www.neatorama.com, suggesting that they run an article on the crash course about a month ago- still waiting to hear back from them.
Seems to be a fairly strong consensus on this one!
I thought Chris out-did himself on this article – really superb. I posted it on Ticker Forum, and the first comment was from Karl, the site manager. I’d take that as an endorsement of the content, to say the least.
We ought to get Karl and Chris together sometime, imo.
Thanks for keeping up on this.
