MUST SEE VIDEO: Dylan Ratigan Breaks Down The Economy & Jobs In His Epic "Network" Moment

Posted by: Noël Jones

No has explained the real problem with our economy and our 18.2% jobless rate in this country better than Independent commentator Dylan Ratigan did today on MSNBC, when he got totally passionate, called B.S. on everybody, broke it down in plain-speak, and called out those responsible on both sides of the aisle in no uncertain terms, including the president.

Here's his opening:

"We’ve got a real problem…this is a mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it, republicans aren’t doing it, an entire integrated system, banking, trade and taxation, created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now."

Dylan Ratigan is the only true Independent that I've seen on cable news--the only one calling out the entire system and both parties in collusion with the banking industry at once. He's also the only person on television that I ever heard during the Health Care debate call out the pharmaceutical cartels that drive costs, while everyone else was focusing on insurance companies. Even though the channel has as many pharmaceutical commercials as anyone else, he did it. I only heard it once, but he did dare to call them out.

This guy is the real deal--I strongly recommend following his show on MSNBC. The rest are all extremely biased toward the left, but not this guy...he kicked ass and took names today!

I'm reposting part of a reader comment that was posted in response to the Ron Paul post--it pertains here:

"Ratigan's video rant on the deficit was right on the mark in every way and I'd be supporting a position like his if it wasn't for a few unfortunate facts.

First, the poor corporations he named as being forced to do business in China because of NAFTA's distortion of markets are the same corporations that wrote the damn law in the first place so they could suck the life out of the middle class and pile up cash in Cayman Island bank accounts.

Second, he may have great ideas for solving problems of the previous century's economy but is one of the many unfortunate souls who are still unable to grasp that we aren't going back to business as usual regardless of how bad we want to. Energy reality won't allow it.

Congress is clueless. The President is lost in raptures of false recoveries. The media primps unknowingly for a chance to preside over the national train wreck.

Like I said yesterday elsewhere:

Don't believe them, Don't fear them, Don't ask anything of them.

Good to hear his rant and expect there are many of us who feel the same.
