I also wonder if the folks at the top have been compromised, and they actually want to destroy the US. They could be working for the Saudi's, for example. Or some other foreign entity.

For those in power, how can they be happy with how their names will go down in history. Are they truly only concerned with the here and now and could care less about a legacy? There's already need for change but with each passing day I feel we're getting closer and closer to some kind of revolution in the US.
This site is maintained by the Economics and Statistics Administration and combines data collected by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, like GDP and net imports and exports, and the Census Bureau, like retail sales and durable goods shipments. The site simply links to the relevant department’s Web site. This might not seem like a big deal, but doing it yourself–say, trying to find retail sales data on the Census Bureau’s site–is such an exercise in futility that it will convince you why this portal is necessary.

We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

Did anyone here any rumors or reports that Japanese banks may be holding the bulk of the bad sub prime loans? I thought I read somewhere that they will be reporting in March and someone claimed the numbers won't be good.
