Republicans saw Obama as Easy Mark

Republicans saw Obama as Easy Mark

Republicans and the filthy rich from the beginning saw Obama as an easy mark. Decades ago, supporting my educational pursuits driving a hack, I was advised not too look like a target out on the streets, for “you could be just driving by and they would see it in you…and they’ll be on you like vultures.” Sad to say, I think Obama, radiating his red-state/blue-state enchantment, may have been seen a mile away as easy pickings and someone who could be rolled. It’s even possible his election may have been helped along because they saw a chance to cash in on such naivete. It’s possible they saw Hillary as much more a threat to them and sought to direct events his way.

And where does that money come from? Well, the not-so-rich — pension funds, 401k accounts, your retirement, your portfolio…

Then, of course, that money they extract gives them political and other power to take other things from you–more money, your rights, your health, your happiness, your country. sorry to be the bearer of bad news *sarcasm*

i worked the market online for over 10 years (off and on, full-time). it is set up to suck money out of the unsuspecting (notice those e-trade ads, e.g., they want to attract the "innocents" is the message, not that it is so easy a baby could do it).

There is insider trading, and market-making..outright manipulation. The regulations went out the window, so you have a fairer chance at gambling. (I’m serious. One of the richest gamblers in the world shunned the market after, as he put it, he "got robbed.") I
