While I am not much in to the concept of promoting conspiracy theory, politics, espionage, or personal opinion, I do find the last two weeks have defiantly built on to past existence.
Wall Street hit the worst low in 7 years last Monday, crippling financial giants in the likes of AIG (American International Group) only to be saved with the consideration of the United States government.
One week later and my personal beliefs in theory have become stronger: there is always a catch.
In the news today it is reported that the FBI is investigating four major U.S. financial institutions whose collapse helped trigger a $700 billion bailout plan by the Bush administration. Prior to the major decline of last Monday’s stock exchange, the FBI investigation was targeted toward 24 financial corporations within the United States over the past year to rule out accounting fraud, insider trading, and failure to disclose the value of mortgage-related securities and other investments.
It is obvious that the government personally has interests in preventing the fall of such financial giants. It is also becoming apparent that their interests also stretches to the point of finding fault within these organizations. But why? How will they choose to enforce misconduct to the companies that they have stretched billions of dollars of American money to protect from failure? Would the United States government take control of companies that were funded with American dollars if they were deemed “misconducted” operations? If so, then what?
1984 could be closer than we think, at least the concept.
I do not want to be considered a “paranoid” American, however I do not mind the term “cautious” as a description. While I am supposed to have faith in my government to make the right choices for the people, the economy, and all else, I am being filled with doubt that the people still have control over their country because of reasons unknown….
