Some might say, “The ends justify the means.”
Some might say the “anarchists” seen at global economic leadership conferences are now getting what they wanted; what they protested for.
Today two Washington Post reporters said the President of the United States is “attempting to harness public anger over the financial crisis” to pass his budget.
Are we setting the future course of the United States and the world based upon anger? And if so, is that a good way to plan our future and the debt burden for our children and grandchildren?
And hasn’t the president himself fueled this anger expressing “outrage” at the AIG bonusus that were protected in his stimulus and known about for months by the Fed and Treasury (and Chris Dodd)?
So now the president wants to “bypass the traditional media and speak directly to the people?” Why? To fan and further fuel the anger?
French Worker Release Factory Head After Lay Off Threat
French workers released a manager of U.S. manufacturer 3M held hostage for two days in a labor dispute over layoffs, the company said Thursday, amid rising French unemployment and public outrage at employers.
A new poll indicated that French worker frustration remains high, with a majority of respondents predicting more violent incidents in response to the economic crisis. The hostage-taking was one of many recent efforts by French workers to protest the downturn.
Workers at a 3M factory in Pithiviers locked manager Luc Rousselet in an office Tuesday, demanding better for those laid off and better conditions for those who keep their jobs.
After discussions Wednesday that ran into the night, Rousselet was released overnight, company spokeswoman Catherine Hamon said. Rousselet, unharmed, then left the factory grounds.
