And this is essential. The only people complaining about "systemic corruption" are the people who's lives dont work for them. Since my life is perfectly fine Im not going around looking for "systemic corruption". This is how personal experience colours ones view of the world.

And who's fault is it that their life is not working? Is it a bankers fault? I doubt it. Is it the system? Maybe just a little. Is it their own fault? To some degree. Or is it just that life is a tough place to be and sh*t happens? Or is it a mix of all of these causes rather than only the big bad Corporations fault? Would the people in this persons community even have any employment at all if it werent for that Corporation?

Anyway, undesirable circumstances are multi-causal and cannot be solely attributed to some Government or Corporation.




Addressing the fractional reserve banking system is a point that is agreed on by a large portion of status new agents, from libertarian to liberal.


I agree that there must be something better than Fractional Reserve banking. All in due time.

corporations fuel NASCAR and this is good. WIthout it, I wouldn't get my Sunday nap in. Without my Sunday nap, I would fall asleep during my overnight shift at a big corporation that processes credit card transactions and moves over 1/2 the worlds money via the banking system. if i fall asleep during my shift, i'll get fired. if i get fired, i'm not eligible for unemployment so i won't even be able to sponge off the government. and what kind of world would we live in if a NASCAR fan who works for big business helping the banking machine make money, can't even get assistance from the gov't which took a mandatory chunk of his bi-weekly paycheck simply because he was employed?!?

The corporations need to learn or put in policies that curbs greed. Greed by its definition cannot control itself and is never satisfied, that is why it is greed.

It is because of that greed that taxpayers had to bail out too big corporations and too big banks.

And we will do it again, because greed does not check itself.

I am glad you are not un happy with the banks and their practices, I personally think there is systemic corruption,
I think there are many people who do too. Hopefully the status quo will remain the same for the sake of your
perfectly fine life and the others who are perfectly fine.

I am not sure why you are big bad-ing corporations again??? Did something happen to threaten their existence in the last three hours?



Anyway, undesirable circumstances are multi-causal and cannot be solely attributed to some Government or Corporation.


I agree

From the looks of things, I think they are safe, any attempt to challenge the banking practices will be met by many people who are perfectly fine, fearing that it is the final communist push or preemptively covering them under the auspices of corporate goodness. All three work well, if those fail, there are other ways to ensure
the status quo, maybe someone else will come and demonstrate.

From Canada Free Press on the Day of rage(notice same name as the Bill Ayers Day of Rage sponsored by Weathermen in the 60's)


“Bring your own tent!” is the message sent out to protesters on the social networks. Recession-bound people, some of whom are trying to move their families in with relatives, live in cars and sleep on park benches, not tents.


The poor forced to take to tents are not paid the least bit of attention by George Soros, and no one pays them to shout lofty chants like “Eat the Rich!” while standing around on Manhattan sidewalks.


Unlike protesters who call activists to action and take pictures with their cell phones, the genuinely poor had their cell phones shut off by not being able to pay the bills and their rusted out vehicles repo’ed.

and the government has done such a bang up job so far with over half this country dependents of the government with no other means of support.

thats what the day of rage was all about they want money other peoples dont care how or the ramifications of it.

it truly is pathetic and yes the current potus has been a part of it as much as his staff and those who he "listens" to.

those who have more can afford to share the wealth so how about government sharing its wealth of power and control to the little people instead of keeping them down.

I hope one day I can help do away with all monopoly laws. If I can accomplish this, and achieve my goal of removing any and all legal limitations, then I'll finally get to do what I truly want. In this new world, after I've sucked everyone else dry of all resources, accruing near limitless wealth. There are several things I'd finally get to remove from my wish list. I would,

1. First take people like neo96 and buy them (in the future utopian reality there are no government regulations).
2. I'd stick these hypothetical people in a polarized glass box about 4'x4' with a single slit that faces a dark wall.
3. Every day I would insert food and make sure all their medical needs are taken care of to ensure the longest imaginable lifespan possible.

I would do this and wave at them in cheery amusement. I would do this as the king of the world. Unfettered by mere trifles like ethics and other problems. Because as Nietzsche showed, the superior man need not have limits!

What a grand day it will be!

The sad part is this group of people just choose to do such a powerless thing as stand together and speak. Instead of gettting a new job or something that will actually have an impact in the long run. "We have too much time on our hands" Is all I hear and see. Another sad thing is that these people have the time to meet at one place and get nothing done.

I did feel bad about that and still do - sorry, sorry sorry! But now it is you who is doing the name calling, which kind of puts the big "H" label back on you.

A thick skin is required here, so I can't apologize for giving that advice.

yeak alright havent read too much then becuase i have posted this link time and time agian.

us population 310 million

us number of officially employed 112 million

numbered of unemployed 24 million

number of the us "work force" 139 million

social security receipients: 65 million

food stampers and welfare :45 million

take a look at household assest 58 trillion

take a look at corporate assets 15 trillion

so whats the math say when you add up all the welfare around 135 million who are dependents of the government.

all this anti corporate crap when what where those household and corporate assets agian?

but by all means dont bothering looking it up for yourself too much work involved

people just have to be spoon fed so they can dismiss it at their leisure


edit on 18-9-2011 by neo96 because: (no reason given)


Also forgetting that a corporation started welfare. Wasnt it J.P. morgan?

The government just doesnt work right if people dont get everything they want.

good luck trying to buy me

yep go after people who make money instead of those who print it and control the entire wealth of this country

thats not wall street no matter how much people think it is.

whats money? an empty promise guaranteed by the government who makes more promises to the point that they are worthless.

I do not understand the teabaggers in this thread bashing this protest as not real. I have yet to see a teabagger protest that was not organized and setup by the likes of freedomworks.

welfare started in 1935 per the new deal and has been added ever since they just dont want to call it what it is.

total wealth destruction and enslavement of the people of this country to their own government their sole provider.

wrong questions to be asking

first one is where are they making their money

people are still missing the biggest point that most if all always dismiss

1 dollar in 1913 has the value of over 22 today so do the math

millionaire? yeah rights
billionaire yeah rights.

22 billion back then would have the value of over 22 trillion today.

going after the wrong people
