"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
Deprive the people? Wake up homeless? Surely here was a man who had first hand dealings with fractional bankers and their bagmen.
Instead of bailing the bankers out, US lawmen should be jailing them in some maximum security prison as a harsh lesson to others. Congress, and the missing-in-action mainstream media, should call a swindle a swindle and a fraud a fraud. The Judicial branch of the government should hand out indictments like breath mints. Instead, the monetary magicians were rewarded with nearly a trillion dollars of your children’s money, by McCain, Biden and Obama and more than 70 of their fellow Senators and some 260 Congressmen.
More dangerous than standing armies? Check. Swindling futurity on a large scale? Check and checkmate.

Instead the Banker Bailout Bill sent a crystal clear message to ALL Americans: Fuck You. Voting is for the hopelessly deluded and clueless. Elected representatives and public servants neither represent, nor do they serve the public in
BOTH presidential candidates, self-styled mavericks claiming to protect the middle class, broadcast their sincere desire to continue the policies of their predecessor, George Weimar Bush, by voting for the gift to Wall Street. Apparently, the only real change that will remain is the hopeless feeling of loose change in our purse or pocket.
Neither McCain nor Obama seemed to notice that war and debt were related. During the so-called debates, both men named various countries they intended to attack if given the opportunity---
The twin Dubyas of Virginia, Warner and Webb, also voted for the swindle. John Warner, soon to retire, left a legacy of dementia with his last two notable votes: for the authorization of US troops in any domestic disturbance and for the Wall Street bailout. One clearly related to the other.
James Webb posed as a Democrat do-gooder when he ran and won his Senate seat in 2006. But the former pulp fiction writer and Pentagon maverick quickly caved to the money powers rather than serve his
A moneyed aristocracy? Really, here in
The clumsy spokesman for that moneyed aristocracy, George Weimar Bush, quickly approved the bailout. He nearly fell over himself to get to the podium. Print more money now, he pleaded. Take that money to a fellow named Paulson, in small bills, tens and twenty billions, and leave it at his feet. Do it now and don’t ask any questions.
“Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not,” replied Jefferson prophetically, from his grave (pictured) at

Curiously, by contrast, Congressmen today appear wholly owned, without any hope of eventual freedom, or the desire for either liberty or integrity. Born free men, both McCain and Obama willingly enslaved themselves to powerful special interests years ago, along with most of their fellow slaves and indentured servants in DC. All they ask is that you enslave themselves to them.
Evidently, Baker never read any

By contrast, we Americans have only lost our country, international reputation, retirement funds, any sort of true representation, and several million jobs and homes and some ten trillion dollars, with the possibility of martial law thrown into the mix at the slightest whim, should we protest too passionately.
POSTSCRIPT: Since the nearly trillion dollar giveaway, stocks have fallen a thousand points. Anybody besides me believe that a round up and arrest of various bankers for fraud wouldn’t have had a more beneficial effect?
