  1. This is a tricky one. I can totally understand why the government needs to insure depositors of a large bank in order to prevent a larger banking collapse . But that does mean using taxpayers money to in effect subsidize those bigger banks and their wealthy depositors. Smaller community banks are not necessarily afforded the same luxury. Could this be another example of the failure of the capitalist model.

  2. Bekah I always have a little giggle when you send me a video that you clearly haven’t watched or understood yourself. Had you watched the video you posted you will see that David Sacks explains precisely the point that I was making. That point being that Money was flowing out of the regional banks and into the Systemically Important Banks. That Bekah is the free market at work. In Economic parlance it is known as a zero barriers to entry or exit and it is enhanced by the almost perfect information that the internet now provides. (That too is as assumption of perfect competition). David Sacks postulates that the federal reserve did the right thing. He may be right in terms of protecting the banking the system but as I stated that can mean a transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich! It is indeed a tricky one and goes to prop up the idea that maybe we need better forms of protection than this capitalistic free market model provides.

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living varied experiences as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.
