    Friday, the 10th 2012, Goldman Sachs was pronounced free of charge! What does that mean? That they were not responsible of their actions during the 2008 crash? Why would the U.S drop the investigations? What does that mean for the future? That they are untouchable? Why aren't the Americans angry? Am I the only one? Where is Justice?

      Justice disappeared out the window as soon as the Rothschild's held the King of England's balls in their hands after the Battle of Waterloo, from then onward they have just been consolidating their deceitful hold over the world, now they reckon themselves powerful enough to ignore what we the people say, after all they control all the central banks and politicians, royalty and corporations, gold and oil and you and me.

      No wonder they feel cocky enough to order the dismissal of all charges against one of their pirate  flagships.

      It seems insane that one family, with how many members? can hold the world to ransom, and have caused wars that have killed millions of people, just for their profit and political manipulation, should be allowed to exist.

      This country has been under control from an oligarchic group since even before the federal reserve came into being. The people have been under some illusion that they are choosing the government to represent them but in reality the candidates are carefully vetted and paid to serve their oligarchal handlers. Think about it Bush? Was he some mental giant to have figured out how to get into the Iraq war? The reason why Obama was allowed to win was one that McCain was thrown at us and did the stupid thing they knew he would by picking Palin and two, admitted that he knew nothing about the economy when it was crashing. Obama makes no difference because once again the "Paid" GOP elite were there to thwart anything Obama tried to do. Obama let all the culprits of the crash off. Where is our voice you ask? Under a rock where they wish to keep it.

    Where is the "occupy wall street" spirit? Where are the people's outrage go? Why would they get away without convictions? Had it been you or I, it would have been different! Once again, where is justice? And why are the people apathic?

      Watching the closing ceremony of the Olympics, the Illuminatii festival of forgetfulness.

      They do not have any left after the police force formed to protect them turned into the fascists thugs in the employ of corporations, and beat them to a pulp for protesting.

      Because they are under the 'protection' of the Red Shield and as such untouchable.


      Once again, justice is hiding behind a Red Shield and will not come out until people destroy the shield.

      Judges and lawmakers know who they work for, and where their cash comes from, they are corporate whores as much as any other CEO.

      Fluoride, Ritalin, McDonald's Super Size, TV, Movies, public education system, vested self interest.... the list of reasons WHY they will not step up to the plate are the reasons that the Red Shield can be so blatantly immoral in their actions.

    I watched 13 hours of the congressional investigation against Goldman Sachs.  In that investigation, all they did was slap their hands for selling toxic assets to their own clients and then betting against them.  In another words, they shorted the market against their own clients.  One would think this would be a  criminal act.  But if all the laws that could cause a prosecution have been removed, then there is no criminal act.  That's what the Gramm-Leach-Bliley act did, it removed the laws that were in place since 1933, that were enacted by the Glass-Stegal act.  Glass-Stegal would have sent them to jail.  This is unfettered, unregulated capitalism at it's finest.  And now we have Paul Ryan who wants to carry this even further.  He believes if all that money flows to the top, it will somehow trickle down and stimulate the economy.

    Had people be a thinking mass, they would be demonstrating? We can't believe that the populace will act! Thinking individuals will. The populace will once more vote for a republican like Romney because he represents their unreachable ideal, giving him the power to fool them over and over! The wall-street crash and its end result is the perfect example.

      Here is how I see it works.  The campaign money comes from big moneyed interests that have a different agenda than the populace. But that money is used to brainwash the populace to vote for that candidate.  Once in office, they are beholden to the campaign funders to support theire agenda which has nothing to do with what the populace agenda is.  Therefore nothing gets done, except money continues to flow to the top.  The most important product today is money, not goods or services and the banks and wall street know how to make it flow from the people to the top.

        What does that mean for people like you and me, that we will be constantly trapped between the people and the elite? The mass that needs to be reassured and the elite that will pamper their ignorance. The U.S needs a third force. It can't keep on surviving between political parties that don't serve its interests!

    They control the money supply, they can foist any nation they chose into economic collapse. I believe there are protesters, many in fact, but due to suppression and punitive actions many protesters have become much more subversive, they have to be.

    It is exactly this resignation that I am against. Our acceptance that the game is rigged! It would be nice that we organize ourselves to protest against the inevitable (Goldman Sachs not convicted). We have a voice!

      It's not a resignation. It's a different type of direct action, I see your avatar is that of Anonymous- are they not subversive? Yet, they take action, and they know who, and how, to strike.

        It differs from the people, where are they? Months of fight in the occupy wall street movement and... now, gone with the wind? What were they claiming justice because of injustice? Now, lies the biggest injustice, where are they?

          The people, unfortunately Maxoxam, are Mc Donald's eating, Walmart buying, immigration hating, exceptionalists! They, I'm afraid, are the majority. The dumbed down. And then, there's those other people....Where are they? Who were they? How do they operate now? I don't know...just thinking out loud.
