“This is the best commentary on the Egyptian affair I have read since it started.
We must realize that the same "System" for which Mubarek stands is one backed by the US Government and Wall Street. This System has institutionalized Fraud, established Corruption in power, delegitimized Government and obviated the former American System based on success through hard work and honesty.
By rendering the American System invalid, the US Government, Wall Street, world wide Capitalist Cronyism has also vitiated the Ideology and Philosophy that were the intellectual roots of the American System. The American Ship is afloat on a sea of chaos without an anchor. Right and wrong are no longer determinate. We have lost our foundation, our faith and, as a result, our sense of Security as a nation and a people.
Institutionalized America does not want Americans to know this, and they are mostly in denial themselves about the failure of their "Mubarek Style" rule in America. No wonder they cannot deal with the current Egyptian situation.
“Been a professional technology innovator all my life. The problem America has is capitalizing on its own innovativeness. As long as technology designs developed in the US are exported for profitable exploitation by foreign manufacturers and cheap labor Americans will not benefit by American innovation.
The issue is less about increasing innovation in America than about supporting exploition of the resulting technology by Americans for American wages and profit.”

“I agree that failure to capitalize on our innovations is the actual problem, as opposed to a failure to create innovations.
I disagree that exported innovations don't benefit Americans. While we lose out on potential jobs, we still benefit from the creation of some new product which can improve our lives.”
“Powerful seflish interests will be against a national recovery -- international capitalists and leftist socialists. The kind of programs/projects Mr. Borosage talks about could only occur under a nationalistic economic surge and would require massive government funding. Although Mr. Borosage may not realize it, he is talking National Socialism here.”
“The Tea Party paradigm is narrow minded. The American Revolution was against the English Colonial Capitalists and Crown, but this time We are the Americans and the English -- just different parts of the same national system.
The English had their problems -- supporting a military that maintained colonial rule while the colonies were exploited by English trading companies (e.g. Hudson Bay's Company and East India Company [selling Tea]) -- so they had to tax commerce on intercolonial trade in order to pay for the Crown's support of the English Empire.
Taxes were not the only issue - the English quartered soldiers in American homes at American expense to save the Crown's money. England actually gave up America in order to send all troops where they were needed in India -- a much more lucrative English colony.
It is time for Americans to understand their own American Revolution and the part they played in it -- and the interests of the Other Side (England = Free Market Capitalists + US Government control).
If the people who started this "Tea Party" paradigm event cannot see the Full Paridign of interaction of institutional forces all within America, they have failed from the beginning.
It's true, the Republicans lost -- they are The English.”
