One can't know the misery they go thru maintaining and staffing an Aspen ski chalet; a Caribbean island they own, along with it's 6,000 square foot mansion, that New York 5th Avenue penthouse and that old English manor in London.
And the horrid expense of buying and staffing a private $60 million GulfStream jet and a fleet of Rolls-Royce's, Bentley's and Mercedes-Benz limos.
So dig deep into your pocket and give, give, GIVE until it hurts.... which it will, as soon as the Rothschild flunkies running the USA, Ireland and Greece get through imposing austerity measures that will steal from the poor and give to the rich.
"Money to get power. Power to protect money"
A comment on the Youtube video page of this documentary says it all:
"Shit rolls downhill, money uphill!"
The Stench of US Economic Decay Grows StrongerAmerica will soon be a country that has the rich, the super rich and the poor and very poor. Goodbye middle-class, you've served your purpose.
Meanwhile in America the sheeple remain content with, or blind to, their role as sheep to be slaughtered to feed the rich. The Obama administration has managed to come up with a Deficit Commission whose members want to pay for the multi-trillion dollar wars that are enriching the military/security complex and the multi-trillion dollar bailouts of the financial system by reducing annual cost-of-living increases for Social Security, raising the retirement age to 69, ending the mortgage interest deduction, ending the tax deduction for employer-provided health insurance, imposing a 6.5% federal sales tax, while cutting the top tax rate for the rich.
Even the Federal Reserve’s low interest rates are aimed at helping the banksters.
In addition, America’s elderly are finding that fewer and fewer doctors will accept them as patients as a 23% cut looms in the already low Medicare payments to doctors.
Our children and grandkids will be slaves, living under the bootheel of tyranny, brought on by those 'Too Big to Fail' Wall Street banks; the Federal Reserve and fighting those endless 'Wars for Wall Street and Israel.'
Former Assistant Secretary of Housing under George H.W. Bush Catherine Austin Fitts blows the whistle on how the financial terrorists have deliberately imploded the US economy and transferred gargantuan amounts of wealth offshore as a means of sacrificing the American middle class. Fitts documents how trillions of dollars went missing from government coffers in the 90's and how she was personally targeted for exposing the fraud.
Massive amounts of financial capital have been sucked out the United States and moved abroad, explains Fitts.
"Massive amounts of financial capital have been sucked out the United States and moved abroad." Gosh, wonder where all our money MADOFF to?
Fraudster's Partners are tied to Senior Israeli Criminals and Israel's Notorious Money-Laundering Bank in New York - so, where did the Money go?P.S. The rate of interest I'm getting on my savings account DROPPED again this month from 0.07% to 0.05%. If this keeps up, soon I'll be paying the bank charges just for the privilege of parking my money in their safe.
Where did the Madoff money go? Said to be as much as $50 billion, the key question about this huge scam remains unanswered. After examining 7,000 boxes containing the documents of Bernard Madoff's ‘investment’ company, a U.S. bankruptcy court meeting revealed that there was ‘no evidence’ that any of the money had been re-invested in 13 years, the BBC reported on February 21, 2009.
Think I'll go out and buy some more ammo, this shit has got to stop and STOP NOW.
No, The Big Banks Have Not "Paid Back" Government Bailouts and Subsidies
“The trading profits of the Street is just another way of measuring the subsidy the Fed is giving to the banks,” said Christopher Whalen, managing director of Torrance, California-based Institutional Risk Analytics. “It’s a transfer from savers to banks.” The trading results, which helped the banks report higher quarterly profit than analysts estimated even as unemployment stagnated at a 27-year high, came with a big assist from the Federal Reserve. The U.S. central bank helped lenders by holding short-term borrowing costs near zero, giving them a chance to profit by carrying even 10-year government notes that yielded an average of 3.70 percent last quarter.
But these days, trading isn't risky at all. In fact, it's safer than walking down the street.
Because the US government is lending money to the big banks at near-zero interest rates. And the banks are then turning around and lending that money back to the US government at 3%-4% interest rates, making 3%+ on the spread. What's more, the banks are leveraging this trade, borrowing at least $10 for every $1 of equity capital they have, to increase the size of their bets. Which means the banks can turn relatively small amounts of equity into huge profits--by borrowing from the taxpayer and then lending back to the taxpayer.
