Navy Recruiters Exploited Market Crash

Posted by libhom Monday, February 16, 2009

The Iraq War has cut way back on military recruiting while increasing the number of troops needed to carry out the imperial agenda of the Bush Regime. When the stock market crashed last October, there was an opportunity for military recruiters. Navy Recruiters were right there.

They were pushing cards at Grand Central Station promoting a website, Navy For Moms. It's a combined brainwashing and support for women whose sons and daughters are in the Navy or who are thinking of being in the Navy. It leaves no room for Navy mothers who are against the war, and it only considers the notion that every mother should support decisions to enlist and reenlist.

It would be interesting to know if the military was aware of the impending market crash before it happened or if they just jumped efficiently on a situation that was advantageous to him.

Mayor Bloomberg also seemed to anticipate the crash with his budget projections. He predicted enormous deficits that couldn't be justified on the normal business cycle.

Many on the left were saying that our economy was facing deep crises based on concepts of fictitious capital and various financial bubbles. The public face of the right was one of exuberance and dismissal of anyone who said that their policies endangered us. Yet, a far right politician on economic and military issues like Michael Bloomberg acted as if he knew that the economy was facing a huge crash.

One has to wonder how many rightist economic figures knew the crash was on the way, but said nothing. I wonder how many of them made money off the crash.

    Gun nut, Kristin Gillibrand, New York's newest senator and Hillary Clinton's hand-selected choice to replace her in the senate, keeps two rifles under her bed!

    I'm blogging it as we speak.
