One response to “1st colonial independence, now let’s do fossil fuels”

    I’d say that we should try to eliminate neocolonialism next.
    The people of Central Falls, East Providence, and Woonsocket, to name three, have seen their local governments taken over by state functionaries whose first loyalty is to the same bond ratings agencies that were corrupted in the last financial debacle.
    Throw the mayor in jail and let the judge who drives to town in a Porsche run things– is the name of that particular tune.
    Independence Day is rightly celebrated as an American victory over colonialism.
    Too bad that we see, almost every day, that too-big-to-fail is rule by the banks and the bond ratings agencies; in short, a euphemism for neo-colonialism.
