Thread: Elizabeth Warren calls out Wall Street

  1. Default Elizabeth Warren calls out Wall Street

    Looks like there are politicians who have the moral courage to "call out" Wall Street after all. Here is an article on Elizabeth Warren's speech, and the article contains a link to the speech if you want to listen to it.

    Whether she runs for President or not, its high time someone in Washington is speaking out against Wall Street cronyism and bailouts.

    She's was very passionate for sure. And not a word I would disagree with.
    The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

    I love her. She is one of a tiny minority who is the real deal. There is a move by Obama's former campaign staffers to get her to run for President.
    I hope she does. Otherwise it will be Clinton v Bush- again.

    That would be good. She would pick up some of the Republicans upset with the bankers and who would never tolerate a another Clinton.

    Maybe she could get together with Senator Sanders (Ind.) who also esposes some progressive economic policies and/or Jessie Ventura, who also is apparently taking a look at a Presidentia run.

    Do you mean Bernie Sanders? He is from VT. Have not heard much from Ventura of late.

    America was based on a healthy distrust of governments. If so that would even moreso apply to corporations. Look at what we have now.

    I should have phrased that better : "Independent Senator Sanders (Vt.)"

  9. Default The Empire Strikes Back

    Wall Street donors really dislike Elizabeth Warren as a VP pick

    While it appears Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is on Hillary Clinton's short list for a running mate, it seems like Wall Street donors are doing everything they can to stop that from happening. One anonymous Democratic donor told Politico, "If Clinton picked Warren, her whole base on Wall Street would leave her. They would literally just say, 'We have no qualms with you moving left ... but if you are going there with Warren, we just can't trust you; you've killed it.'"


    Warren has been open about her interest in being Clinton's running mate, telling MSNBC, "I am ready to get in this fight and work my heart out for Hillary Clinton to become the next president of the United States." She has drawn a lot of attention during Clinton's campaign, especially from Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump. "Pocahontas? Is that what you said? Elizabeth Warren? ... She is a senator that is highly overrated. She has passed very little legislation. She has been a real disaster for a lot of people, including the Democrats, who quite frankly can't stand her," Trump said.


    Both Clinton and Democratic challenger Bernie Sanders have dropped Warren's name throughout their campaigns, fueling more talk that she's a popular pick for the second-in-command. Warren has met with Clinton at her home in Washington, D.C., and at the candidate's Brooklyn headquarters. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has yet to announce her pick for VP or say when she'll make her choice.
