I knew there was something fishy about our corporate-owned media ratting
out our corporate-owned government. It's simply a matter of which corporate
interests hang in the balance. In the end, working Americans lose, no matter
who they support in this financial surveillance fiasco.
to the reports in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, the financial
tracking program was part of an aggressive post-Sept. 11 effort to gather
intelligence, tapping into the world's largest financial communication network
for information on bank transfers.
The network — run by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial
Telecommunication, or SWIFT — carries up to 12.7 million messages a
day. Those messages typically include names and account numbers of bank customers
— private citizens and HUGE CORPORATIONS ALIKE —
that are sending or receiving funds.
That's where the buck stops folks. The NYT
doesn't care about us OR our privacy. They care about corporate freedom
to engage in unfettered shady financial transactions without ANYONE - especially
the corporate competition - getting a heads up through government surveillance.
And to that end, our corporate-owned media hopes to enlist the help of freedom
loving Americans under the guise of protecting our constitutional rights, when
really, they're concerned about their economic privileges.
We're in a no win situation. If we fight the surveillance, the corporations
backed by the media stand to gain, and if we don't fight it, the corporations
backed by the government prevail.
Working Americans are caught in the middle, like a hapless and hopeless nationwide
ping-pong ball - one way or another, we go where they want us to go.
We need dramatic change in America. What are you guys doing on the
4th of July?
