Angry and Spitefull Iam. Hate is a very strong emotion. Theese people have earned my direct attention and my strongest feelings.

Thanks to George Ure for brining this to our attention and Thanks to Bernie Sanders who website is down right now for making this known.

George is always a good read @urbansurvival.com almost as good as ATS. Start every day this way.

Anyway here is the Beef and how they put it to us one more time. Getting sore enough yet? No lube for us.

Hats Off to Senator Bernie Sanders:


Hats Off to Senator Bernie Sanders:
Your $4-Trillion Bailout Tab

With global economic collapse in the wings, at least someone in Washington has the balls to tell-it-like-it-is on the bend-overs and bailouts that accompanied the Housing Collapse:



"Jamie Dimon Is Not Alone During the financial crisis, at least 18 former and current directors from Federal Reserve Banks worked in banks and corporations that collectively received over $4 trillion in low-interest loans from the Federal Reserve."



In the Senator's press release we read with some interest who these 18 Fed-tied people are:

---

"1. Jamie Dimon, the Chairman and CEO of JP Morgan Chase, has served on the Board of Directors at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York since 2007. During the financial crisis, the Fed provided JP Morgan Chase with $391 billion in total financial assistance. JP Morgan Chase was also used by the Fed as a clearinghouse for the Fed's emergency lending programs. In March of 2008, the Fed provided JP Morgan Chase with $29 billion in financing to acquire Bear Stearns. During the financial crisis, the Fed provided JP Morgan Chase with an 18-month exemption from risk-based leverage and capital requirements. The Fed also agreed to take risky mortgage-related assets off of Bear Stearns balance sheet before JP Morgan Chase acquired this troubled investment bank.



2. Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of General Electric, served on the New York Fed's Board of Directors from 2006-2011. General Electric received $16 billion in low-interest financing from the Federal Reserve’s Commercial Paper Funding Facility during this time period.



3. Stephen Friedman. In 2008, the New York Fed approved an application from Goldman Sachs to become a bank holding company giving it access to cheap Fed loans. During the same period, Friedman, who was chairman of the New York Fed at the time, sat on the Goldman Sachs board of directors and owned Goldman stock, something the Fed’s rules prohibited. He received a waiver in late 2008 that was not made public. After Friedman received the waiver, he continued to purchase stock in Goldman from November 2008 through January of 2009 unbeknownst to the Fed, according to the GAO. During the financial crisis, Goldman Sachs received $814 billion in total financial assistance from the Fed.

I was pissed ten years ago......... Lots of good it does us. There are simply too many people that are lost, blind, stupid or selfish enough to do anything about any of it. This Country needs a serious financial collapse (inevitable as I have a ton of cash in the bank) before it will feel enough pain to grab these POS bankers and politicians from their homes and truly make a change.

Personally I am going to go after a true fat cat, they are better eating.

True that while I dont have money to burn I can still make a fire a roast up some cat. always leaves a bad taste in your mouth though.

I should maybe soak'em in salt water a few days to take out that gamey taste and top them with a bit of vinegar and honey. haha
