However, all of this could have been averted if people kept their money in *community banks* rather than large national or multinational banks. Keep your money in your socks, in your mattress, in your floorboards - not in banks! If they have it, you don't. Keep that in mind in the future.
Start movements for receiving your pay in cash. Pay your bills in cash. Remove banks from the system. They crept into this position when they realized that it was convenient for us, but bankers are by nature greedy and we have fed that trait in them until we created a horrifying monster. The credit institutions grew out of the awareness of our weakness. *We* must take responsibility and bring these monsters down with our own actions now. Get rid of your bank accounts and get rid of your credit.
Our society must change now. We must be that change.

This video also explains why most every press conference in America is orchestrated so that they know ahead of time who is going to be asking questions and what those questions are. They don't want Obama having to speak without the teleprompter telling him how to answer each question. They certainly wouldn't want the Comrade in Chief embarrassing himself when confronted with pitbull journalists such as this Irish gentleman and his crazy desire to know the truth.

I live in Ireland.
This journalist, While commendable and righteous, Does not represent the majority of Irish people.
Yes, We are all pissed off, Yes, We hate bankers and callously spit their names, But we are a castrated nation. We refuse to make change for ourselves. We seem to be waiting for some Superman to whisk us up and save us from our oppressive Government and big Europe.
No, We Irish people don't want change, We don't want stability, We just want to stand around and complain. Because that's all Irish people do, Complain.
Maybe I'm just bitter, I've always hated Big Europe and Banks. When things were good I despised how people were spending money, I got told to promptly STFU, And now, That the #e has hit the fan, Everyone and their mother's suddenly knew "How it was going to happen all along!" and they know exactly how to fix the crisis and so on and so on. No, To hell with this country, To hell with the people of this country, I am not Irish, I live in Ireland, I was Born in Ireland, But I am not one of these imbeciles, I am not Irish.

Nice.. well said, and is certainly the feelings of most Irish people..
But I have to say, he asked "why" .. and I'll tell you "why" the Irish have to bailout banks that have no relation to them, to insure European bond holders and international stake sharers .....
You joined the European Union.
And because you joined the European Union you deserve everything that happens to you.
