Goldman Sachs. Hmmmmm...two Jews that control one of the largest banks in the world. Let me see, the jews control the banks, they control the media, they control the United States Government, they control the military. No, there is no zionist cabal here, right?

How many other companies could you do this Venn diagram with that have similar positions within the hierarchy?
Probably several. I don't see the importance. Someone care to elaborate for me?

And that is just Goldman Sachs. Nice job. But it isnt surprising. High debt means high profit for the banks. Is it any wonder, that the bushes raised the naitonal debt through the ceiling? Who do you think sponsored them?
J. P. Morgan and Company; Frank A. Vanderlip, President of the Rockefeller-owned National City Bank; A. Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury; Benjamin Strong of Morgan's Bankers Trust Company; and [Rothschild representative] Paul Warburg." Tucker added "The 'Fed,' ... is allied with the Bilderberg group, which is composed of the world's biggest moneychangers--led by the Rockefellers and Rothschilds."
Thomas Jefferson speaking on the first attempt to establish a central bank in America:
“The system of banking is a blot left in all our Constitutions, which, if not covered, will end in their destruction. I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”
“The end of democracy, and the defeat of the American revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of the lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.”
“If the people ever allow the banks to issue their currency, the banks and corporations which will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
“Paper is poverty… It is not money, but the ghost of money.”
“There is an artificial aristocracy, founded on birth and privelege, without virtue or talents… The artificial aristocracy is a mischievous ingredient in government, and provisions should be made to prevent its ascendency.”
“The bank of the United States is one of the most deadly hostilities existing against the principles and form of our Constitution. I deem no government safe which is under the vassalage of any self-constituted authorities, or any other authority than that of the nation, or its regular functionaries. What an obstruction could not this bank of the United States, with all its branch banks, be in a time of war? It might dictate to us the peace we should accept, or it might withdraw its aid. Ought we then to give further growth to an institution so powerful, so hostile?”
"Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry, and commerce ... and when you realize that the system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation, and depresion originate." -President James Garfield July 2, 1881
It was earlier reported that MF Global, the brokerage firm formerly run by John Corzine, was entering bankruptcy with a shortfall of $593 million, or 11 percent of customer funds. Now it seems the shortfall is a tad higher—somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.2 billion, double previous estimates. A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money!
It's unclear what's behind MF Global’s earlier lower estimates, or where the other $700 or so million went. The Times reports that "authorities are still searching for the money, and are considering two possibilities. One is that MF Global used the money to meet trading partners’ demands for extra cash, which could come back. The other is that it was used to cover trading losses, which would be unrecoverable." Has anybody looked at how many pimped out cargo vans MF Global bought?
