<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON -- With the economy in a slump for nearly four years, corporate executives and conservative politicians have repeatedly invoked "uncertainty" as a major barrier to American job-creation. The "uncertainty" jab is a go-to talking point for any congressional Republican looking to tag President Barack Obama as a tax-raising, regulation-obsessed foe of American businesses.

But according to banking data compiled by economic research firm Moebs Services, the uncertainty plaguing the American economy has nothing to do with government regulations or taxes on millionaires. It's an uncertainty driven squarely by consumers and small-businesses who are worried about their short-term financial prospects. And it's been going on since well before Obama took up residence in the White House.

Since the end of 2007, bank customers have pulled over $900 billion out of certificates of deposits at major U.S. banks, parking their money in checking accounts and money market deposit accounts. Banks pay customers interest to park their money in CDs, but pay out next-to-nothing for money market accounts, and still less -- usually nothing -- for checking accounts.

"These are enormous shifts," Moebs Services founder and Chairman Mike Moebs told HuffPost. "We haven't seen stuff like this since the 1930s." </div></div>Read more here:

Friedman, Reagan and Thatcher were fascists. They planted the seeds for the RW fascism that has taken over our country

The Shock Doctrine clearly showed the pattern undertaken by Bush/Cheney and the Neocons, after 9/11. We all watched as all of their actions, buzz words, secrete energy meeting, corporate/government corruption, took over our country, from invading Iraq, to the exploitation of religion and Nationalism to sell their narratives.

They used fear to pass through the selling off of America to Corporate interests, and that was their Neocon plan, long in advance of the attacks, waiting for the right opportunity.

Now we have a super energized, anti human rights, radical Religious Right, helping the Fascist Noecons, with the blessings of the powerful RW Supreme Court's fascist decisions, all ex;loiting the religious rights' own ignorance, all in concert, holding America hostage and working overtime to create a full-blown Fascist State.

Be afraid, very afraid of any prospect of another Republican in the White House again.

Review Friednman's impact on Chile', and the Reagan/Thatcher results on the poor and the Middle Class.

The Shock Doctrine provides ample proof, of shadow Republican Fascist policies.

Did you ask who MOEBS SERVICES (http://www.moebs.com/AboutUs/Clientsserved.aspxhttp://www.moebs.com/AboutUs/Clientsserved.aspx) might be? Of course you didn't ... they spoon fed you what you wanted to hear.

Sadly for you, I did.

Moebs Services is a suburban Chicago tool of the democratic party with clients such as:

American Bankers Association
Americas Community Bankers
Bank Administration Institute
Bank Marketing Association
Consumer Bankers Association
Independent Community Bankers of America
Financial Managers Society, Inc.
Mortgage Bankers Association of North America
Agency for International Development
Credit Unions Executives Society
Credit Union National Association
Eascorp
Education Credit Union Council, Inc.
National Association of Federal Credit Unions
U.S. Central Credit Union
Wescorp
World Council of Credit Unions
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
Congressional Banking Committees
Federal Home Loan Bank
Senate and House Financial Services Committees
U.S. State Department

And their primary service seems to be aiding the banking industry on how to leverage overdraft fees for the greatest profitability.

Ridiculous claim, considering who the founder, Mr. Moebs, is.

He's a Chicago School economist, and I know of no Democrats who agree with the Chicago school of economics. That is the Milton Friedman monetarist school of thought, with Mr. Moebs studying directly under Freidman himself. The Chicago school skews libertarian to conservative to Republican.

No question about it. Fear is always the Repiglican tactic. All of the Bush/Cheney/Rice "Mushroom Clouds" BS, protectionism for the war profiteering thieves, and Wall St. crooks, all the result of Repiglican policies.

The gall of this Repiglican Congress blaming Unions, American public Workers, anything and everything except where the blame belongs, right on their own policies...thenn they followed up with dog whistle lies that turn their own policy debts into WMD's, for their re-election spin by blocking progress and recovery, with their Debt threats....

They take a few of the President's words out of context to fit their fear mongering lies and slander about him, same thing they have done since before he won the election.

Same method used by the right on this forum....

Hidden agendas, fear mongering, blaming average Americans for their own costly corporate suck ups AND GIVEAWAYS to the rich and corrupt.


It was the Repiglican Congress and George Bush who put us inTO THIS debt and corruption trick bag...and we have plenty of proof.

Now, the scariest thing is a glance at the line up of candidates from The Stupid Party! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif
