Corporate Facism, Corporatism run amok. Putting everything before the individual...corporations, wars, foreign aid. This is absolutely ridiculous. While people suffer and lose their homes the BANKS were SAVED...what a sad day in history.

They are not "elected", they are installed by the corporate-financial complex.

"Installed" is the operative word.

It's been part of the plan, since the first bankruptcy was drawn up right after the Revolutionary War. It was staved off upon being paid. Then after the second bankruptcy, of which we've never paid off, it got it's foot in the door solidly and is evident by objectively examining historical events and even looking at all the fascist symbolism throughout our government.

Even the Lincoln Memorial depicts Lincoln sitting in a chair with arms supported by bundled rods, eagle has bundled rods in claws... etc.

For sure however, Lincoln insisting on a war this nation has never paid for and ultimately caused even a third bankruptcy in 1933, solidly set the stage for where we are today with things.

fwiw.... the cost of the Civil War, to every surviving US citizen, in real 1851 dollars, was 330 million each.It was also more expensive than the total of all wars fought since, until the turn of this century (we've finally outdone Lincoln with undeclared war in the middle east going on forever) and no wars fought since resulted in the loss of as many lives, also combined total.

It was a very evil and bad thing to do. De facto, it ultimately ended up enslaving the entire population of all civilized nations. Nirvana's "Man Who Sold The World" is about A Lincoln.

Well, the banks always pay it back, the people not so much. You're just talking about free shit, right? I can get behind free shit but I don't want to have to pay it back, it wouldn't be free shit then would it?

Don't compare the banks and the people cause the banks have to pay it back and as a people I have no intention of paying anything back.

the banks are using people's money...this is a ridiculous argument
