There you have it, no wonder this little cabal has hijacked US tax dollars to be given as massive yearly bonuses to its banking staff... there is no regulation. Whatsoever.

The Venn diagram serves well to distill this type of information. Thanks, and I'll be on the lookout for your thread.

I have friends, too many, on Wall Street. Since high school their main goal as directed by their parents was to get into the "right" college, join the "right" clubs and then graduate and get hired into these financial institutions. All they've been doing since they were 13-years-old is learning how to chase to money and get accepted into the "old boys club" of Wall Street.

This simple diagram goes to show what a gravy train that gig is... I'm not actually sure hard work is involved, it's more about networking and knowing the right people to get a high paying job that gives you tax payer money as bonuses.

Welcome to reality, our government is controlled by bankers. I love how simple facts like this can be so earth shattering and suprising.

Very true. A simple diagram to help awaken more and more people to the actual "reality" that surrounds them. This should be the lede story on FOX. hehehe.

Yeah thanks for putting the venn diagram together. In the near future, I was planning on putting some sort of flyer together that describes how bankers run the government, and this would be a great graphic to include in there.

You gotta love how Obama constantly talked about greed and corruption on Wall Street causing the financial collapse, and he appointed a ton of those same crony bankers to his Administration

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?

I used to feel like a lone voice when I tried to spread this message....

Now, it is clear that others see the framework of the usurpation of our sovereignty; that's a good thing.

What is now left is to repeat the message that there is only ONE bank. It takes the form of a supranational cartel and it's infrastructure is nearing the final stages of complete global integration.

Right now that one 'agenda' is shared with various (a relatively small number) of separate groups of robber barons. But ultimately, in effect and execution, it is a singular entity... it' sole purpose is not 'altruistic' .. it's more 'aristocratic.'

Despite their posture as rational people, they remain adherents to the notion that "continuity" refers to their personal well-being and that of their personal posterity... our planet seems to be constantly under siege from this self-appointed economic royalty. They have caused the rise of even more repulsive and destructive ideologies... just as commerce and it's penchant for exploitation gives rise to it's own opposition (think corporate vs. collective bargaining) they engender their own obstacles...

In the end, I want to say that eventually we will begin to see the signs that all banks operate together... and those who fall out of favor are 'excised.' Banks have NO loyalties... they serve only themselves and their agenda.

OK.. rant over ... going now...

Gotta give credit where it's due, the diagram comes from Stephanie Herman on on It's licensed under creative commons, so it can be used freely.

No kidding, Obama did put many of these greedy fools in office. Such a hypocrite, but got himself on gravy train too and into US "royalty" with that move.

I hadn't thought of Bush in that context with the debt ceiling... no freaking kidding. Thanks for the info.

If anybody wants to read more about the Goldman Sachs govenrmetn links here is some good information.

Does Goldman Sachs run the government?

This is not a surprise to me at all. After reading works by G.K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc this is something that was predicted to occur over a century ago. Read ‘The Servile State’, it is perhaps one of the best explanations of how and why this state-bank-corporation alliance would form and what would come from it. Basically, capitalism alone was too unsteady and the assault on it by the proletariat was raising so in order to subdue the socialist rebellion they (the state and business) had to come to a formal conclusion on how to do this. Their answer was a welfare state; it would subdue the masses and keep businesses happy by giving them just enough to stay alive but not enough that it would harm profit. It would be the same arrangement as the requirement by law on having to guarantee very basic things to keep slaves alive and protect the slaveholders from an uprising against them.

From this arrangement it would also secure a permanent establishment made up of the banks, businesses, and government. But to those who are observant, such as Chesterton, this definitely was not a better elite than we had before: “Better the blustering bossiness of a baron than the poisonous power of the plutocrat”. Chesterton summed it up when he said:

“There has arisen in modern life a literary fashion devoting itself to the romance of business, to great demigods of greed and to fairyland of finance. This popular philosophy is utterly despotic and anti-democratic…The essential argument is “Specialists must be despots; men must be specialists… We must have commercial civilization; therefore we must destroy democracy”

Our country is run by a cabal of technocrats who are so far removed from the common life of the citizens they rule over that it might as well be a foreign leader. They are so far removed that they are almost connected with all of the technocrats across the world, more so than the people in their own city. We need leaders not technocrats, all they care about are statistics, opinion polls, and money. It is the age of modernity, the age of materialism, where finances triumph culture and politics. Where you cannot rise up unless you are already at the top, us commoners are damned. This is not the nation of Washington, Jefferson, and Adams.

A leader is who we need, a man who is not afraid to march into battle side-by-side with a poor farmer boy from Texas and a middle class girl from Queens. Who in times of crisis would prefer listening to the orders given by the brave man who stepped forward, without questioning his intelligence, wealth, or anything else, rather than listen to the multi-millionaire money changer. That is who we need, but that is the same type of person, the one who embodies true democracy and the American spirit, that our plutocrats despise. We need a George Washington again!

“A degree of silence envelops [George] Washington’s actions; he moved slowly; one might say that he felt charged with future liberty, and that he feared to compromise it. It was not his own destiny that inspired this new species of hero: it was that of his country; he did not allow himself to enjoy what did not belong to him; but from that profound humility what glory emerged!” – Francois Rene de Chateaubriand

Insider trading for Congress keeps them all wealthy and compliant. Goldman-Sachs just finished their first ever "prefect trading quarter" where they made money on every single trade! Are they psychic? No, this is what happens when you have all the information and power to make sure every trade is profitable.
The system is rigged courtesy of our corrupt Congresscreeps.
We should put them all together on a small island with limited resources and nothing but machetes and see how their cooperative spirit and sense of sharing works out.

For Christmas I'd like to give each of them a nice kick in the tail.

Government Sachs. Here's more reading about congress insider trading from USA Today via 60 Minutes.

WASHINGTON – A long-ignored proposal to ban insider trading by members of Congress gained new traction this week following news stories that reinforced the public's low opinion of Congress.

Measure to ban Congressional insider trading gains steam

It's amazing how slowly but surely these events have unfolded, right under our noses, to result in the outright "legal" theft of US Tax dollars. These people in government and executives in finance are insane. Quite literally.

They hold all Europe as well ...

Our Friends From Goldman Sachs

It turns out that not only Monti (Italy's new Prime Minister) and Papademos (Greek equivalent) used to work for Goldman, but the new head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, is also a from Goldman employee.

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?

Reminds me of this guys interview from about a month ago that mysteriously took a nose dive to the bowels of the internet less than 24 hours after it surfaced.

That's good, but how come it only shows those from the Clinton and Obongo administrations? There were plenty of these vampires appointed by the Bush crime syndicate, too.

Obama is a scoundrel who politicked (lied) his way in office on a message about change from the corrupt bush years.

Meet the new boss same as the old boss.

Undeniably sickening. What better way to "solely" occupy DC, as some here rabidly demand, than by occupying WS as well?
