    And it's from more than 100 years ago. 1896 as a matter of fact.

    It sums up the anti-semitism, the hatred for capitalism, the hatred for free enterprise, and the greed for money that someone else has earned.​

    It's a perfect example of how the left NEVER changes. You think the OWS is the next best thing, but the truth is, the ideas behind it are as old as your great, great, grandpa Lennin.​

    Look who gets demonized in this picture! The Jews, Wall Street, Democracy and the list goes on. Looks like it could have been drawn yesterday by an OWS protestor.​

    Wall Street destroyed the world economy with a $516 trillion dollar derivatives Ponzi scheme, and no one went to jail for it.

    You are on the wrong side of the barricade, my friend.

    Is that the next step in OWS, the Deliverance option? If so, I would keep it to yourselves, don't you think?

    I wasn't aware Wall Street could raise taxes and pass regulations that hamper business.

    Thanks for enlightening us on that!

    A £516 trillion derivatives ‘time-bomb’
    Not for nothing did US billionaire Warren Buffett call them the real ‘weapons of mass destruction’


    By Margareta Pagano and Simon Evans
    12 October 12 2008

    The market is worth more than $516 trillion, (£303 trillion), roughly 10 times the value of the entire world’s output: it’s been called the “ticking time-bomb”.

    It’s a market in which the lead protagonists – typically aggressive, highly educated, and now wealthy young men – have flourished in the derivatives boom. But it’s a market that is set to come to a crashing halt – the Great Unwind has begun.

    Last week the beginning of the end started for many hedge funds with the combination of diving market values and worried investors pulling out their cash for safer climes.

    Some of the world’s biggest hedge funds – SAC Capital, Lone Pine and Tiger Global – all revealed they were sitting on double-digit losses this year. September’s falls wiped out any profits made in the rest of the year. Polygon, once a darling of the London hedge fund circuit, last week said it was capping the basic salaries of its managers to £100,000 each. Not bad for the average punter but some way off the tens of millions plundered by these hotshots during the good times. But few will be shedding any tears.

    The complex and opaque derivatives markets in which these hedge funds played has been dubbed the world’s biggest black hole because they operate outside of the grasp of governments, tax inspectors and regulators. They operate in a parallel, shadow world to the rest of the banking system. They are private contracts between two companies or institutions which can’t be controlled or properly assessed. In themselves derivative contracts are not dangerous, but if one of them should go wrong – the bad 2 per cent as it’s been called – then it is the domino effect which could be so enormous and scary.

    Our government destroyed the world economy, not wall street.

    Negative reps for you, idiot!
