What the BNZ 'Is money good, is money bad' TV adverts actually prove

So the BNZ spin doctors in advertland sense the rising disgust by many at their industry's despicable greed and role in creating the global financial crisis. They ascertain that we are asking existential questions about money as the consumer culture collapses.

People start remembering that they are citizens when they can't afford to be consumers any longer.

However rather than remove attention from the bankers and their greed by asking philosophical questions of money, all the over produced, cast of thousands TV adverts actually prove is how much bloody money the banks have to spend on wanky adverts...

Big bank profits the price for stability - Bollard
New Zealand's big four Australian-owned banks earn more out of the nation than banks in most other countries, but that's the price that must be paid for a sound financial system, according to former Reserve Bank governor Alan Bollard.

According to Reserve Bank data, the big four locally incorporated banks' aggregate net profit was $2.78 billion in the 2011 financial year, the most since they collectively made $3.02 billion in 2008, before the global financial crisis set in.

...so while BNZ asks us if money is good or bad, they have increased their profits up 37% to $528 million.

If I was walking away with half a billion during one of the steepest recessions with 270 000 children in poverty and the highest inequality rates ever, I'd be wanting to ask pointless bullshit questions that don't go anywhere as well.

The 1% don't care if the 99% think money is good or bad, they just want you distracted so you don't notice them taking yours.

Like those ads about "drugs" - with the "actors" acting out various imaginary scenarios while the voice over intones "such and such a percent of Kiwis think driving on drugs is ok - do you" - who's paying for THOSE ads!

Okay...slick bulls$$t comedy skits flouted by banksters have to be admired if only for the desired effect the brain washing verisimilitude have on the senseless moronic gullible sheep who lap it up while safe at night behind the glaring potent bright light of hope masquerading as prime time television. Thank f$$k I am so poor as to not have the (waste of) money to be able to hook up the box to allow yourself to be pushed to the brink of total silliness. Now f$$k that! Banksters only want your money. Fraud is illegal.So is stealing. So just trick people into believing there is always hope if you stick with us.Banksters will always take. Oh, for the painfully short memories the masses hold.

I'm just going to post this YouTube clip again, in case anyone missed it in my other post today:
Banksters the world over (and their political stooges) have done more damage to the global economy than anyone seems to acknowledge.
The problem is NOT new: Thomas Jefferson in fact nailed it centuries ago:
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
