In the heyday of the Soviet Union....

....any time some segment of the centrally planned economy would crater, the powers that be in the commie party would shoot the administrators for a lack of commitment to the commie ideas or some such nonsense....the idea being that any failure within the system must have been a problem of insuitable commitment because the commie system was fine and dandy....
anyhoo....

I'm 18 minutes into this clip and apparently the reason there's so much rampant fraud in the financial sector is because the people running the show just weren't adequately committed to truth, justice and the american way...

I mean, the basic point that the best way to rob a bank is to own is straight up and this is fraud on a massive scale....but the rest of this rather misses the biggest bank and the biggest fraud of all....the Federal Reserve...el banko maximo, the bank of banks, the oddly owned Corporation that can create money for itself by punching a few more 0's into the computer...

...how does this dude have a 30 minute conversation on banking in the US and not mention the Federal Reserve once?

he cries for more regulation, but who the ______ does he think will do the regulating if not the same people that are bending us over right now?

Just made it to the end -- his basic recommendation??? Fire the folks running the show and put new ones into management positions...yeah that ought to work.

I've never met a Jewish banker...

I met a Jewish teller once...



[also - does circumcision affect the feeling of getting screwed (over)?]

I wish I could watch this video so I could stay on topic, but I'm at work...

I just love derailing threads that I don't know anything about (but this is already more interesting than anything else in the Political Arena...)

why would you want to have the haters proven to be correct?

then all we would hear is "I told you so!" from people that are really disgusting, and pretty much in the wrong.

For the record, 'Alexamenos' is a masculine name.

Underdog is (in part at least) jewish, hence i was simply supporting his desire to be the head greedy banker in the united states....

If we were debating who should take over the job of head inbred banjo player, then it'd be nice if one of the baptists in the house stood up and requested the nod.

ok that was a cheap shot aimed at baptists...sorry guys....but I am baptist, so it's ok for me to make fun of the toothless inbred baptists who can't read.

Bingo-bango...

The American economy is based on a fraudulent currency system and the rest of the world is losing faith in it... "In God We Trust" doesn't mean a whole lot in the face of Chinese economic expansion - a currency needs to be backed by material wealth (resources & production), not philosophical ideals...


[although I should clarify that the Fed doesn't operate under the same philosophical principles as most American citizens - "In God We Trust" really means "we don't have the gold to back our currency so we'll pretend like our money is faith-based even though the Fed controls how much cash is in circulation at any given time and charges interest on every dollar printed which keeps the American taxpayer in eternal debt and diminishes the value of the dollar exponentially..."]
