Thomas Peterffy's Dream

by Winsip Custer CPW News Service

I grew up in a socialist country.
And I have seen what that does to people.
There is no hope, no freedom, no pride in achievement.
The nation became poorer and poorer.
And that is what I see happening here.
As a young boy, I was fantasizing about one day going to America.
Making a success of myself.
The American dream.
America’s wealth comes from the efforts of people striving for success.
Take away their incentive by badmouthing success
And you take away the wealth that helps us take care of the needy.
Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer, but the poor will also be poorer.
People will lose interest in really working hard and creating jobs.
I think that this is a very slippery slope.
It seems that people don’t learn from the past.
That’s why I’m voting Republican and putting this ad on television.
I’m Thomas Peterffy and I’m responsible for the content of this advertising.

    This ad was placed on CNN between an ad for The Society for Human Resource Management and Ford Motor Company that used the Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe.....the everyman of the American work experience.

     "There is no rebuttal to Peterffy who backs only Republican causes and who as a founder of Boston Options Exchange, BOX,  that provides electronic order matching services to stockbrokers and traders and shared equity partnership with Citigroup, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, UBS and Citadel Derivatives Group, all with their own connections to the 'too big to fail' bailout of Wall Street," said Festus Green Pusley of the citizen bank watchdog group Brazen Banks Back At It Again.  "Boston.  Massachusettes.  Where Romney was governor.  Where the Tea Party was held against those damn monarchists and King George yelling 'don't tread on me!' Only to be comandeered by the new breed of monarchists who believe in the monopolists' creed:  Too big to fail. Too small to succeed without our blessing, so lick our boots."

     "There's no mention of the 1930's business plot of Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, John Burroughs, Charles Lindberg and Prescott Bush that would have had Marine General Smedley Darlington Butler taking over America with an equally distasteful option....not Communist totalitarianism, but Fascism.   A slave is a slave by any other name," said Pusley.

     "The American dream that Mr. Peterffy loves is the part about a common man like Mike Rowe working his way up with the help of others who encourage him, invest in him,  buy his product, trust his judgement, see his ethics on the street corner each day lived out in close community to others.... and know him long before he is picked off by Citigroup, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, UBS, Ford, Goldman Sachs and others needing a little guy as an example to show that the American Dream is still alive and well, but all the while promoting their bigger dream.  Their dream of an American imperialism, of too big to fail, of too small to succeed unless we say you can," said Pusley.  "Nobody's badmouthing success, but there is a huge difference between the success of vulture capitalists, monopolists and ethically challenged Enron, Columbia/HCA, HealthSouth, United Health Group, Tyco or Worldcom executives, S&L scammers or housing bubble bimbos and  the ethical, capital expanding venture capitalists who know damn well that Henry Ford did not invent the automobile, the wheel, nor the roads that taxpayers funded  so that his transmissions and engines didn't fall out of his Model T's half way between Detroit and Chicago", said Pusley. "But you cannot call what Columbia/HCA did in earning the largest Medicare/Medicaid fraud fine in U.S. history at $1.7 billion only to see their CEO paid $400 million in a severance package and to go on to become the Governor of Florida, for example, as success."   Pusley concluded "I'd take away that 'success' in a heart beat even though Mr. Peterffy may call that 'taking care of the needy'.  I'd like to see that called treason and some people shot...call me whatever label you want.  I call it class warfare and riding a high horse. Peterffy is right about one important thing...it seems that people don't learn from the past."
