William Greider on Obama's form of Monoply: Real money, no losses to Playahs

William Greider writes about Obama's new type of Monoply game, one with real money for the Big Bankster Boiz to play with, no losses, and all provided for by the taxpayer. Us Joe Schmoes.

President Obama has invented a new board game for Wall Street money guys to play that promises to be a lot of fun. It's very much like the regular Monopoly game that kids play -- only better -- because this one uses real money, provided courtesy of the taxpayers. The best thing about Obama's game is nobody loses. Usually, the winner in Monopoly is the one who winds up with the most money. In the Obama version, the losers get any losses back from the government at the end of the game. The president has promised.

The guy is a genius. He located these two whiz kids -- Tim and Larry -- who are smarter than God about financial matters. President Obama commanded the advisors to solve the financial mess, raise the zombie banks from the dead and start the good times rolling again. This game is what they came up with. It's a very complicated game and not everyone can understand it. But the Wall Street titans smell hope. For this Monopoly set has no "Go to Jail" card in the deck.

Only problem? Taxpayers can't say they don't want to play. And if they get upset?

President Obama can charm them out of their anger. He might say, "Hey, guys, lighten up. It's only a game."

And, of course, "We're all in this togerther." And the parasites, they say, " Hey! Hold on a bit longer. We're not done feeding yet."

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

[Banksters] never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay

A hustle here and a hustle there
New York City is the place where [banksters] said
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
I said hey [schmoe,] take a walk on the wild side
