You saying we should adopt a really really bad idea because, hey, the last really bad idea was horrible but didn't kill us?
i wasn't defending, much less supporting carbon credit swaps. ridiculously useless for any purpose--slime bait comes first to mind despite an overall lack of interest demonstrated by so many truly despicable, rabidly aggressive flimflamming parasitic investment buncos. whooops. i seem unable to avoid that lil faux pas.
no matter how idiotically conceived or distastefully implemented, carbon credit swaps might only be fairly characterized as "really, really bad" by comparison to synthetic cdos in a universe in which out-and-out chicanery, degenerate greed, a total lack of empathy and full-on rabid weasel sociopathy were held in highest regard. For instance the very one inhabited by creators of and participants in "If I Wanted etc" (the concept and many of the main points of which appear to have been lifted in large part from an original piece authored by one paul harvey).
page 2! friends..if you're as fecaly impacted as those responsible for "If I Wanted" not even the good folks at serutan are going to be able to help you out
if those same people--and/or those who find their video so compelling--really wanted to help prevent america from failing and one of their main concerns was moles subverting america's financial systems, does it make any sense for them to totally overlook one of this country's 4 or 5 most devastating crises to present instead egregiously inaccurate scenarios to insinuate that catastrophe is somehow equivalent to a admittedly flawed--but so far innocuous at very worst--run-of-the-mill boondoggle?
as to the goebbels/larouche awards, larouche has spent most of his life proving government has no monopoly on propaganda. i can understand how nominating freeamericanmarkets.org might be considered insulting. given access to today's technology, goebbels and riefenstahl woulda really energized this video's target audience by adding hordes of jewish rats presided over by stepin fetchit.
