We all see those rabid people in the media attacking what is basically an unknown "nobody" for simply wearing a MAGA hat while voting days ago and he was later fired from his job for supporting Trump (which I thought was illegal, so IDK if these stories we keep hearing are real or not). So if everyday "no-one's" like this get so much attention and repercussions for simply wearing a hat and voting against the "accepted" party, then I would say that there is another set of people who are hundreds of thousands if not million times more deserving of this kind of targeting, harassment and such, and the people I am talking about are the people behind the 2008 financial crisis. The reason these people weren't attacked is because Obama was in office and he was actually MUCH more violent with his police force than Bush or Trump, among the threats that were made against people seen to be "harassing" or "assaulting" these wall street criminals.

Well the tide has shifted and what was not accepted as far as harassment and even assault, now seems to be an every day thing by some political groups who follow people to restaurants, invade people front lawns and kick in their doors among many other TRULY DEPLORABLE things (this time it is accurately used to describe the people - but ahhh - isn't is always like the left to project??).

So I want to make a list of all the people who helped destroy the country from 1999 until 2007/8 as well as the companies who did this, the banks and bankers who did this and or supported this and then we need to know the people who helped cover it up and or provide the get out of jail cards and their golden paracutes (such a dumb name, you'd think they'd crash quickly with gold as a parachute...)

I'm sure these people have made billions or even trillions on the $ stolen from the American people over the last 10-20 years and I think, given the correct motivation, that these people just might find it in their best interest to make some philanthropic/charitable donations. If not maybe they can expect the same kind of treatment that the media has given the big
to by never condemning the left when they do it.

There are also other reasons to track who these people are who profited so obscenely from the 2008 crisis, and that is for when the time comes for 'the people" to re-collect the money which has been stolen from them. We need to track who these people are, if they have financial trusts, who they marry, who their children are and who they marry, what charities they give money to (if any and or if it is a "shell charity" that allows them to retain control of their $$ should the gov come after it for their crimes - this WILL NOT stop the people from extracting their kilo's of flesh).

So I'd like to know the names of people, company they worked for, crime committed, amount of money they "lost", how much they were paid b4 the crash and how much afterwards (in all forms of payment). We also need to know the regulators who protected these slime balls and gave them cover for their massively illegal deeds.

I think we are going to find that much of the money is already "gone" and I would be willing to bet that it was used to build things like underground bases/bunkers/hideouts as well as stocks for these places. On top of that they probably have standing armies on call so they can be extracted should the need arise and they can be shuffled off to their crypt - oh, I mean bunker. I also have a feeling that much of the $2.3 trillion that was questioned on 9-10-2001 was also spent on these "black projects", the DUMB's (deep underground military bases) - and the reason they were so "black" is because building bunkers to withstand the apocalypse is kind of something that needs hidden, so what better way? 9/11 - and it traumatizes the nation so they forget about the "accounting error" (Shut up shills, your explanation doesn't hold water - regarding that the money wasn't lost).

Money is not so much a thing as a concept. Sort of like God.


The Treasury has been earning a return on most of the money invested or loaned. So far, it has earned $338B. When those revenues are taken into account, the government has realized a $96.6B profit as of Oct. 17, 2018.

think of it this way

instead of bailing out the consumer and paying their debt off so they could keep their house or offering a way out they threw the money at the big banks

there is a lot of things they could have done with a trillion dollars but they just put it into the hands of the bankers

I know General Motors was on it's deathbed without a bailout. 120 million of that was eventually paid out to the victims of the deadly ignition switches that GM knew were defective, but still did nothing about until the death toll forced them to.

Affordable-housing goals established in the 1990s by the Clinton administration led to a massive increase in risky, subprime mortgages. Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac & the commercial banking system (all banks) are to blame, including the Federal Reserve Bank, which has been devaluing our currency since 1913. Its all going to happen again too because a debt crisis can't be solved with more debt.

I still can't believe they bailed out GM. Their cars are also lower quality now then before the financial crisis. That's what happens when you don't allow the free market to weed out bad businesses. I just hope they don't bail them out next time they go bankrupt.

These things are a prime example of why socialism is bad compared to free market capitalism. Think about how many automobile manufacturers which operate responsibly are hurt by allowing companies like GM to continue bad business practices. Think about how many Fords would have been sold & how many good jobs would have been created if GM & Chrysler were allowed to go bankrupt under a free market capitalist form of government. We might even have a couple new car manufacturers to replace them or Ford might not be discontinuing most of their car models. We do have Tesla, so all is not lost but how many more Teslas would sell if GM and Chrysler no longer existed?

They all benefitted. If one of the big banks went down, it would cause a chain reaction with the other banks. Also, unfortunately none of them ever got punished for it and made billions from it.
So they have an incentive to do it again.

The old saying, always follow the money applies.
The major beneficiaries were the bankers.
There are 10 banking lobbyists for every politician in DC.

Nothing happens in DC unlesss there is a financial incentive.
I have a bridge to sell you if you think politicians care about any poor people that do not have millions to purchase them.

Right - a concept. Next time I have to pay a bill I'll pay them in concept instead of money. In fact I'm going to call my mortgage company right now and tell them to conceptualize my payments coming in from now on.

But I have a couple of really simple questions first...

How many people got pre-approved for a mortgage that they couldn't afford, and took the loan anyway?

How many people took that large mortgage, or any note for that matter, and actually read their entire contract before signing?
