Something to contemplate, many feel this way. Is it what it really seems to be, or is there something more to it than we really see. Stimulate the masses to other ways of thinking, maybe wake up a few and they may begin to awaken from their slumber.

this one has been around a few times. It's a good one, and worth seeing again.
Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it.

This is rubbish. Its not a banker, its an actor. I say this thread belongs in the HOAX forum. All he needed to do to make the video any more corny is ask for some Grey Poupon.

you are missing the point. What he is saying is true, no matter who he is.
it's the way the world is run and how we are enslaved to debt.

that maybe so. an Actor he may , then the appearance of things usually turns out to be. for instance your avatar looks like a Yorkie , but with a bit of adaptation and visualisation i can see a Mop


you are right tho he's probably an actor reading a script borrowed from our shared stage.

I get it, but its not that simple. For example, sports cars aren't built because bankers want us to go into debt. They are built because people desire them. People go into debt to buy them because its easier than saving up to buy one. Say a nice $30,000 car costs about $600 a month for 60 months to finance if you put nothing down. If you put away $600 a month for 50 months, you would have the money to buy the car outright, but you would have to wait four years to buy the car put you wouldn't pay any interest.

While the banks are thieves, its not when it comes to simple consumer loans. They are thieves when manipulating the investment markets, or when they charge exorbitant interest rates for credit. But if they loan a person money at a reasonable interest rate, they help provide the engine to our economy.

In summary, banks are not the enemy. Its the lack of regulation thanks to Government (Clinton and Bush, and both parties in congress) that have allowed the banks to get away from their legitimate purpose.

Yes he is an actor, but the point is crookedness and the fact that, yeah, so what are you going to do about it. So it's a mixture of poking fun and sarcasm and really is anybody with very deep pockets and have morals able or brave enough to do something about it?.

Of Course, blame the Jews. Its funny, is that Louis Farrakhan? Who ever he is, notice, he says first, "two Jewish bankers" then says "The international bankers" which clearly implies many non-Jewish, perhaps christian bankers?

Why doesn't anyone ever start a sentence, Asian investment banker Brian Kim, or Christian banker Allen Stanford...

If you are a thief, you are a thief, regardless of which fictional bible story you believe in. Why is every time someone who happens to believe the Jewish fictional story, it must be pointed out that they are Jewish?

I agree, and the only way to fight them is to live like our grandparents did and tried to teach us to. The society that has evolved is just plain greedy. the banks are capitalizing on that. Can't blame them, but to ignore it would prove disastrous.

Yeah, they are in rich people's pockets, but its not just bankers. There are rich oil people, rich doctor lobbies, rich manufacturing people, rich military research people.

My point isn't that Bankers are all good. My point is that banks in general are a good thing that have been manipulated into a bad thing, and it is our politicians' fault. Our politicians should be in our collective pockets, but there isn't enough intelligent people out there to really force an honest and open conversation about reforming the government. Lobbies should be illegal, all campaigns should be financed out of a public pot, there should be no political contribution to any campaign, and anyone caught taking under the table money should be tried for treason.

I'm sorry US Supreme Court, Corporations are not people and should have first amendment rights.

Actually people don't desire sports cars. The desire for sports cars is created by advertising.

In fact the desire for all things we don't need are artificially created.

Capitalists create artificial desire for material possessions in order to make profit, and enslave the people in their system of artificial scarcity of needed resources.

I bought my first Corvette after helping my friend work on his. I did not even know what one was prior to assisting him put the thing back together in his garage. I would not consider that advertisement.
