Living Large

“There’s a storm coming, and when it hits, you’re all going to wonder how you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.”

Selina Kyle character talking to a 1%er in the Dark Knight movie.


Banker parasite

People who dismiss the unemployed as “parasites” fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without spearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society.

Freedom

The illusion of freedom [in America] will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.

Frank Zappa


Holder defends bankers

The last big bank bailout was not in the form of money. The Bank Mortgage Settlement Deal was a bailout where changes in the law were made to retroactively transform banks’ illegal behavior into legal behavior.

David Petrovich


 

only banks create money

It does make sense however, when you fully understand that money is the most powerful arbiter of justice in the world and those who administer the creation of money through debt are THE most powerful people in the world.

Thomas Brown

 

only banks create moneyNo money gets into circulation without going into debt to a bank.  There is no other source.  The United States issues no sovereign money!  Therefore Americans are not free people.  It is time for us to admit the truth and either do something about it, or stop blowing up stuff on the 4th of July believing a myth.

Damon Vrabel,  Harvard Business School

Henry Ford on monetary system

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.

Henry Ford


 

QuantanamoBack in the ’50s and ’60s, kids used to say, when one of us did something the others didn’t approve of, “Hey, it’s a free country.” I’ll bet you haven’t heard that expression for many years. Back in the ’70s, there used to be a joke: “America will never have concentration camps. We’ll call them something else.” Guantanamo, and the long rumored FEMA detention centers, are proof that it wasn’t a joke after all.

Doug Casey


 

War for profit

War is a LIE. Not the “lie” of ideologic or religious causes, but the economic truth of competition between global capitalists for control of resources including minerals, precious metals, oils, cheap labor, and markets. If endless war wasn’t profitable … we wouldn’t have it.

David Swanson


 

happy gamblers

Friedrich Nietzsche


resistance to tyranny“Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.”

Benjamin Franklin


Corporate control of politics

In fairness to the impartiality of the Supreme Court, the poor as well as the rich have the right to spend unlimited amounts of money for political purposes.

Rudy Avizius


 

no bailout for Iceland banks

In other words, the people of Iceland have not had their future mortgaged in order to bail out a bunch of greedy bankers.

Peter Krauth


Wall Street greedCan you think of a better business model than being a Wall Street bank? You hand out 500 million credit cards to 118 million households, even though 60 million of the households make less than $50,000. You then create derivatives where you package billions of subprime credit card debt and convince clueless dupes to buy this toxic debt as if it was AAA credit.

James Quinn


Banker Debt

Debt is backed with debt, based on debt, dependent on debt and leveraged with yet more debt. For example, today it is possible to buy a bond (i.e., lend money) on margin (i.e., with borrowed money).

Keith Weiner


 

criminal bankersWall Street and major European banks usurped unprecedented money making power.

They steal it.

Steve Lendman

Eric Byler


Edward R. Murrow

A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.

— Edward R. Murrow


Massive Mortgage fraudThere’s no doubt that the banks are happy with this deal. You would be, too, if your bill for lying to courts and end-running the law came to less than $2,000 per loan file.

Gretchen Morgenson


Making money from both sidesThe mortgage debacle was equivalent to all the big car companies manufacturing cars that they knew were going to crash and buying life insurance on the people that they sold the cars to knowing that they would die so they could collect on both ends.

Peter Grandich


 

Who was behind the assassination?

“Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce…and when you realize that the entire 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 depression originate.”

President James Garfield, 2 weeks before his assassination.

Food stamps really are a subsidy to businesses that do not pay their employees enough money to feed their families.

poor pay most in taxesIt is true that 50% of American workers pay no Federal income tax. It is also true that 50% of American workers make less than $25,000 per year. If these workers are employed in Philadelphia they pay 4% city income tax, 3% state income tax, 7.65% Social Security and Medicare tax, 6% sales tax on everything they buy, 15% state and federal taxes on gasoline, and they pay city and county property taxes whether they own or rent.

James Quinn
