* Review of a Documentary *
© - Tom Hyland - 7/30/2011
EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN SHOULD WATCH THIS FILM! A TEN +
EVEN THE RICH ONES! EVEN SOME OF ‘THEM’ WERE ‘DUPED’!
OH - AT THE END - BE SURE TO CAREFULLY READ THE JOCULAR ‘PUNISHMENTS’ THAT WERE DOLED OUT TO THE ‘FEW’ ... WHILE ABOUT A DOZEN OF ‘NAMED’ CONGRESSMEN GOT OFF ‘SCOTT FREE’! WERE NEVER EVEN PROSECUTED! AND ... THEY ARE THERE RIGHT NOW - STILL IN CONGRESS - BULL-SHITTING, AND ‘DIVVYING UP’ OUR TAX DOLLARS!
WHAT A FREAKING SYSTEM!
THE FOXES ARE ‘GUARDING’ THE HENHOUSE!
AM I SCREAMING? YOU BET YOUR SWEET ARSE I AM !!!
Before actually getting into the Documentary, I watched the Hollywood Version first, it stars Kevin Spacey as Casino Jack, and he does an excellent job in his portrayal. After seeing this, and having both the hairs on my neck standing up, as well as my bowels in an uproar ... I wondered just how close to the truth it could possibly be? DEAD ON!
They say that ‘Truth is stranger than Fiction’ - this becomes self-evident as the Documentary unfolds. ‘Wheeling & Dealing’ at its Finest Hour!
If you have never understood exactly what ‘LOBBYISTS’ do - you are in for a ‘Rude Awakening!’ JACK WAS THE GREATEST ... and there are Hundreds MORE!
This film has been so delicately ‘woven’ with excellent editing, interspersing actual video clip footage throughout. We see young Jack as an Organizer while still in college, representing ‘The Young Republican Party’. Several of his ‘contacts’ he acquired while in school will appear years later, to become very significant ‘pawns’ in his career-building.
His Charisma and profound persistence have probably never ever been surpassed by any other living being! The Hundreds of Billions of Dollars which he ‘BILKED’ from Native American Tribes is Unbelievable!
The number and names of fictitious organizations he established as ‘Fronts’ in order to both receive ‘Contributions’ (the ill-informed might call these ‘bribes’) as well as ‘Dole Out’ the well-hidden ‘Campaign Contributions’ to poor, unsuspecting ‘Died-in-the-Wool’ INCUMBENTS, along with aspiring ‘New-Comers’ ... is almost mind-boggling! Mostly for REPUBLICANS!
As his rise to ‘Stardom’ progresses through the years, Jack is proven as a veritable ‘Master’ at his trade. His Partner, Mike Scanlon, was as dubious as any real life character could be - the Plans, or Projects, which they hatched together were both cunning and daring! ILLEGAL? Who Knows?
Unbelievably though, when the ‘House of Cards’ finally was exposed and collapsed, Mike got off ‘Scott-Free!’ No prosecution - did no ‘time’ - still owns a Multi-Million-Dollar Mansion in Rehoboth, Delaware (an old DuPont Estate) ... and has somehow just ‘slipped into the shadows’ somewhere ...
HOW? WHY? Gee, did he KNOW Somebody?
As this true story unfolds there is actually a MURDER involved, a Greek non-citizen, who owned a Fleet of Casino Ships, which operated out of Florida - Miami I think. Who Owns it NOW? Was the murder solved?
‘Foreign Investors’ from American Marianas POURED MONEY into THE POT in order to foster ‘SWEAT-SHOPS’ which manufactured clothing with labels proudly stating ‘Made in the USA’!
Before the ‘Credits’ start to roll at the end, Text will appear on your screen, be sure to have your Remote in hand, to PAUSE and READ each one! Just WHO got WHAT, and for HOW LONG?
Only ONE Senator did 18 months in Prison, John Ney - and he is IN this documentary, telling his story!
When the Feature ends, you MUST go to the Special Features, and carefully Select and See each one! PHARMA - the Lobbying Arm for all the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers in America POURED BILLIONS of $ into getting THEIR WAY on controlling Drug Prices!
President Obama STRUCK a DEAL with them, so that the Government could NOT intervene in Price Control to SAVE POOR SENIOR MEDICARE
Participants any Money - so that his National Healthcare Act would PASS!
An absolute ‘GREEN LIGHT’ to PHARMA ...
Also, during BUSH JR’s ‘Watch’ - Medicare Part D for Prescriptions was a Total Farce, which BENEFITED ALL the Insurance Companies!
I have only hit some of the ‘Highlights’ here ... if you Don’t SEEK OUT this Documentary, and LEARN ... SHAME ON YOU! Never ever, in the future, claim IGNORANCE!
If this Travesty of Justice continues to occur, and Americans are Stupid enough to Re-Elect INCUMBENTS in future Elections, then ‘WE THE SHEEPLE’ will Deserve What We Get!

The following is a copy of a review sent to Karen, which I
Just posted ... it is Pertinent to the whole Sordid MESS!
KAREN: Nice story!
Back in the 'good ole days' it was a truism - "Safe as a Bank. ..."
Today, however, most of the big banks are just as CROOKED as the Big CORPS and CONGRESS - they got their 'BAIL-OUTS' but then began HOARDING their money - not LENDING any out!
Housing Development, Construction Loans, Mortgages, Small Business Loans have been at a STAND-STILL! Great for JOBS Creation, huh?
In addition, just for FUN - check the Wondrous Interest Rates they 'give' on SAVINGS!
My own Credit Union grants a very 'gracious' .05% on balances. Just last night while reviewing bank statement, was amazed to find that IF I had $500,000 on Deposit (that's a HALF MILLION DOLLARS) I would get a WHOPPING .75% interest - LESS THAN 1 PERCENT !!!
Besides not having any money LEFT to Save - they 'RUB SALT IN THE WOUND' for those fortunate FEW who do have money - OH THE GREED!
Suppose for one moment that you bought a Lottery Ticket and ACTUALLY WON A MILLION DOLLARS! WOW! What would you DO with it?
Put it in a SAFE BANK and stupidly earn a WHOPPING ONE PERCENT?
Invest it in REAL ESTATE that currently SUCKS?
Or rush out to GOBBLE UP STOCKS - which are so SAFE, to get a better Yield?
I understand that 'CASINO JACK' ABRAMOFF got out of prison last December 2010, after serving only 4 YEARS for the Biggest Scandal CONGRESS' has ever seen!
Maybe 'DONATING' your MIL to one of his BOGUS Companies could BUY you a 'SEAT' somewhere in Politics, and you could join the 'GOOD OLE BOYS' in RAPING AMERICA ...
and HELL - who knows, might Double or Triple your money, and eventually become PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! WOW!
"SAFE AS A BANK" INDEED !!! TOM.
