Man, I will tell you what is shit, blind ignorant partisan thinking. Free your mind for zen's sake. Saying information presented is not good information simply because of the source cited is one of the most blatant and easily spotted fallacies, it doesn't matter who does it.

Fallacy: Poisoning the Well

Fallacy: Ad Hominem

Never mind where the video was posted, it is the content of the video that is important. If you had freed your mind, and opened it up to useful information, you would not have remained so blindly ignorant. It just so happens that Bill Moyers is one of the most progressive, most trusted, and well respected journalists the left has. Sure he is a gate keeper of leftist information, but did you ever think that maybe Neil Barofsky just an honest non political public servant that is blowing the whistle on government/corporate collusion? It has nothing to do with left/right politics. Hell, most people know Moyers as more of a Socialist. To not know this bespeaks of either very little education, or very few years of experience.

Barofsky also shares his deep disappointment in President Obama for protecting — instead of reigning in — the big banks.

“I thought that if there was ever going to be a political figure that would take on the interests of Wall Street, it was going to be President Obama. And that just didn’t happen,” Barofsky says. “It was the exact opposite of that… He had the same ideology as Secretary Geithner and, frankly, the same ideology as a lot of those people who came from Wall Street.”"

Currently an adjunct professor at the New York University School of Law, Barofsky is the author of Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street, a behind-the-scenes account of insider dealing and mishandling of financial bailouts by the U.S. Treasury Department.

Bill and Barofsky share a larger conversation about the financial sector’s seeming omnipotence on this weekend’s Moyers & Company. Check local listings.

We just need the UN to monitor the whole goddamn country.

... and clean up our water.
Global dictatorship in the interests of the elites is not the solution. Currently the representatives to the UN are appointed by the elites, it is completely non-democratic. It is very much how rulers in ancient times used to rule over their slaves and serfs. No thank you. Though the internal working of the UN itself might be democratic, the representatives are representing the most wealthy and powerful interests on the globe, not the poorest and most vulnerable.

If they do represent them, the US would not be able to bomb and invade and fund insurgents where ever it wants. But the richest countries use the UN as a policy tool. And the elites in those richest countries decide how those policies will be addressed.

You do know in many cases, water is privately owned because of rights recognized by the UN. WATER, really. . . :rolleyes: If corporations can own water, I guess they can foul it up as much as they want.

Trust me, that is part of their goal, they want the UN, the IMF, the BIS, the world bank, all of it, to regulate, codify, and unify everything into one system. One big system they can manipulate and control, a system that everyone is locked into. It makes the corruption and thievery for them a lot easier.

Craigslist, the farmers market, bartering, alternative currencies, trading and paying in cash are their worst enemies. If they could pass a law keeping you from making your own clothes, and growing your own food, and have any chance of enforcing it, they would.

Not to get off-topic, but you have just given the best description of U.S. public schools, and the tenure system, that I've ever read. :thup:
