Energy & Banking Criminal Racketeering
« Reply #120 on: December 20, 2014, 08:33:10 PM »
Latest FFDR now IN THE CAN!

In this one I pull in everyone from Al Capone to Smedley Butler to my Deep Throat informant from the Energy industry to skewer the Criminally Insane sociopaths running the Energy & Banking Biz.

From Smedley:

Quote
I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.
 
I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.
I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

A NOT TO BE MISSED FFDR

The email stream on this is VERY lively!

Can't wait to hear this one.
Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
Im a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Frostbite Falls Daily Rant Returns!- 2017 Year Rant in Review
« Reply #132 on: October 11, 2017, 09:26:10 AM »
PHEW!  I finished scripting, recording and editing my first Frostbite Falls Daily Rant in over a year.  I quit on doing these things because they are just a shit load of work.  Even more work if I want to drop it on Utoob with a slide show for illustration purposes.  Not doing that one right now, I'm burned out just getting the audio finished.

I did this one because as I mentioned in another thread, SUN☼ got a BIG DONATION from a Lurker who is a fan of the rants.  So this rant is my way of saying THANKS for this donation.  :icon_sunny:

I wish Diner Regulars were half as generous as Diner Lurkers. Most of the help I have had financially in running the Diner has come from the Lurkers.  Still net negative, but at least the lurkers keep this from being a total money sink.  The regulars are not too helpful.

The new Rant will go up for my Sunday Brunch article.  I did a recap of the last Year in Doom.  There was plenty of material to rant on.
