    Republicans and Democrats Offer Support for Massive Wall Street Bailout

    Flexing its political muscle, Congress insisted on a package that gives lawmakers a stronger hand in controlling the money than the Bush administration had wanted. The rescue plan casts Washington's long shadow over Wall Street with the federal government taking over huge amounts of devalued assets from beleaguered financial firms in exchange for more oversight.

    The Patriot Act was the beginning of the end of the republic.

    No.​

    It merely proves to those of us paying attention, (who have the horse-sense to understand what's really going on) that the REPUBLIC hasn't really existed in any meaningful way since 1913.

    The REPUBLIC handed control over the money supply to a PRIVATE CONSORTIUM OF BANKERS.​

    These masters of the monetary are America's REAL leaders of the nation.​

    When our government gave the FED control over the money supply, and agreed to pay the FED interest for BORROWING money from it, which the FED invents as needed, our government became a TOOL of CONTROL employed by the FED.​

    Get this stright... the FED controls the GOVERNMENT and NOT the other way around.

    Our government takes orders from the people who get to create legal tender, folks. The government take its marching orders from the FED because the Government "borrows" money from it.

    The GOLDEN RULE is in effect.​

    Hence this so called "bailout" is really nothing but the banking community showing us that they, and not our government, control the economic health of this nation.​

    We know that sham of this supposed constitutional republic is up if we're intelligent enough to look at the mechanics of what is happening RIGHT NOW.​

    Where does the FED get $700 billion?​

    It doesn't have that money, right?​

    It gets to INVENT IT, and then lend it to the USA AT INTEREST?

    Does that makes sense to anyone here?

    Can you lend money you don't have? The FED can.​

    If you do not understand the above, then you can continue to think that our nation is run by that shadowpuppet threater called politics that is playing out in Washinton.​

    But the privately owned corporation that is the FED just shook down the US government for a vast amount of money, and proved to me that the government has NO CONTROL whatever over the banking community.​

    Atlas didn't shrug, ATLAS pointed a gun at our collective head, folks and we dance to their tune.​

    I hope so. I sincerely hope so. It is not what it once was. Now all we have is a deeply divided nation with representatives who are partisan hacks who are willing to stand on TV and piss out one lie right after another. Like they did this week with Senator McCain. Pass our money back and forth in their grubbly little hands. Intimidating thugs one and all. I hope Washington and Wallstreet burn to the ground.

    donkeyshit, you did'nt have a problem with Palin's email being hacked into and published on the internet, so you shouldn't have a problem with the gov. knowing which library book you check out.

    Not really. The Reppublic was long gone before that.

    Most of the invasion of privacy laws, most of the laws that make this place a police state, were already in effect because of the War on Drugs.

    Mostly the Patriot act was about putting the various police forces of the FEDERAL STATE AND LOCAL GOVERMENTs under control of one grand organization...Homeland Security.

    The rope was already around FREEDOM'S NECK, the Patriot ACT merely tightens it enormously.

    No.

    It merely marks the first time many of us have noticed that our government is a slave to the FED.

    Many gold bugs, far right wingers and far left wingers have been telling us this nation is based ona lie for decades now.

    I didn't believe them AT ALL until the SAVINGS AND LOAN bailout.

    Now, as I hear our Congress debating this newest wholesale THEFT, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the whole system is a sham.
