    So now that Team Obama wants to hand over conplete control of the Banking System to the Federal Reserve... giving them the power to break up companies, and housing the new regulatory agency within the Federal Reserve itself all the Media Stories about just how bad the Investment Banks are .... really are... is coming to the Front Page.

    These companies have been "Bad Guys" for years and years.  This is nothing new.  This is just propaganda to push forward another horrendous bill.

    Do we need reform?  Maybe. We've had it in the past and both parties have chosen to ignore enforcement of existing laws.  Both parties have chosen to sell out to the Wealthy Elite.  Clinton signed off on the Republican sponsored repeal of the Glass-Stegal Act.

    This current attack on Investment Banks should have been done last year when they were pushing for Bailout Money.  But none of this would have furthered the Wealthy Elite's agenda.

    Now that their is legislation to give the Wealthy Elite complete and total control of the Banking Industry it's in their interests to put this out on the Front Page.

    Scam after scam.

    The Federal Reserve is NOT a Government Agency.  They are Private, Secret Bankers.  And Team Obama (with the backing of Republicans... which they will get) want's to give these people total control.

    Americans are being duped... and it's just too easy for the Wealthy Elite to do it.

    When are Americans going to wake up?

    And for the people who don't believe this... it's time to learn what the Federal Reserve really is... EVIL Power Mongers.

      For Obama, it's a page out of FDR's book, demonize the bankers to win elections and gain support for your agenda, but real reform isn't coming anytime soon.

    One thing is clear with Obama:

    wealth=evil, unless you are on his side.

    Since when did being wealthy make people evil?

    If it were not for wealth and capitalism, Bill Gates would not have donated millions, upon millions to charities. Yet, liberals give him no credit but they praise Oprah for what she does even though she donates a very minute amount of money to charities relative to her income.

    This all smells of another time in another country.

    So MikeNV, what's your proposal?

    SparklingJewelposted 8 years ago   this is clearly put, and a must for understanding...

    ...a proposal might be to stop playing into the system, like stop using big banks and go back to local ones and other small money institutions where they are more community oriented...

    or stop all investments that have middlemen that "multiply" your investments i.e. derivatives, etc...

    how to create sound money system, where money is actually backed by something substantial...

    I smell a rat.  Goldman donated near a million to the Obama campaign, now he's supposedly going after them???  I don't think so.  This is nothing more than a perpetual bailout authority bill. 

    ps  We're led to believe its the Republicans that are in bed with the bankers.  Check the facts.  Republicans only wish they had the support the Democrats receive from the banking and lending institutions.

    There can be no real reform until the Secret Bankers controlling the Federal Reserve are exposed.

    Plan = Abolish the Fed.  Put the money supply back in control of the people.  There is no legitimate reason to allow secret bankers to manipulate the currency.  It's just that simple.

    You can't cure financial disease by continuing to treat symptoms of the disease.  The FEDERAL RESERVE is the DISEASE!
