Just so you know where all the money went after that “crash” of 2008. It seems not everyone crashed. In case you haven’t been paying attention…
According to Oxfam, the world’s rich are getting richer, leaving hundreds of millions of people facing a life “trapped in poverty” as global “inequality spirals out of control”.

truckloads of U.S. and Western aid has been flowing into territory controlled by the jihadists, assisting them to build their terror-inspiring “caliphate.”
Not only that, they’re paying cash bribes to the head chopping jihadists in order to allow the shipments through.
. It is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, European donors, and the United Nations.
“The convoys have to be approved by ISIS and you have to pay them: The bribes are disguised and itemized as transportation costs,” says an aid coordinator who spoke to The Daily Beast on the condition he not be identified in this article.
Paying off ISIS is technically “material support for terrorism” a crime here in the US. Anyone besides the government who does it goes to prison (or worse).Another indicator of the glaring fraud this entire fiasco truly is.

CDC has already published that up to 1.4 million Ebola cases may affect Africa by January 20 of 2015. Perhaps this explains some of it…

While the UN fund has received pledges of about $20 million from various governments, it has received only $100,000 in actual cash deposits, and that from only one country, Colombia.

David Swanson reviews the new expose by James Risen, who is being persecuted by CIA and Obama for telling the truth.
The root of the problem, as Risen sees it, is that the military and the homeland security complex have been given more money than they can reasonably figure out what to do with. So, they unreasonably figure out what to do with it. This is compounded, Risen writes, by fear so extreme that people don’t want to say no to anything that might possibly work even in their wildest dreams — or what Dick Cheney called the obligation to invest in anything with a 1% chance. Risen told Democracy Now that military spending reminded him of the Wall Street banks. In his book he argues that the big war profiteers have been deemed too big to fail.

Democrats’ hypocrisy on corruption, plus some gags about the email spam.
I was calling out this email harassment in 2007-8 when Obama emailed me daily, or twice even. Took Stewart long enough.
