    I wasn't saying that it was "ok". I was saying that it's how things really are in microcosm. A glimpse of reality, if you will.

    @ Philip
    Rest assured those controlling this election would make sure the lone voice of sanity – Ron Paul is not elected.

    @ chrissy

    Absolutely. I wonder if those lauding this most vile of acts on these blogs are even Americans?

    "Needs to be done"? The Fed located here has been audited countless times over thee years. But not by US. The federal reserve/central banks in the US are nothing more than branch-banks of the BIS. They funnel our income tax dollars through the IRS in the Caymen Islands to the BIS bank, and then loan our income tax dollars back to us with interest. The worlds federal reserves run the worlds economies, and the BIS runs the world's federal reserves, even here. What say you Mr. Obama?

      I have read everything you have posted in the past.
      I have agreed with you on this subject then, and I did today. You still feel the need to mock me, as you do every post I make.
      I'm with chrissy; I'M sorry I posted an agreement to you.
      I assure you, it will *never* happen again.

      Good afternoon, saywhat.

    Hi saywhat. Yep. Ron Paul has been downplayed from since the time he won CSPAC. remember? Sarah Palin got like 8%. I catch news clips from time to time, and it seems like the medias critique of RP is 'canned'...like they are just mouthing words. At least they haven't resorted to the Mr. Mcgoo angle.

    And to all you countries trying to emulate the *new and improved* US version of Democracy, be careful what you ask for, you just might get it! With all the corperate and government corruption included! Bonus!

    @chrissy. You insinuated that my urinator/territory marker angle was like me saying it was ok. All I was saying was that these men p/ssing on people demonstrated exactly what's been going on the entire time Afghanistan has been occupied by US. Poppy production is up 800%, for example. That might not ne p/ssing on someone, but it's close.

    The BIS is a private reserve and once the money is in their hands, It's no longer considered OUR money. The federal reserve is also accountable to no one, not even the US citizens. The only threat is to take away the USD,Ha HA...don't think that's gonna happen.

    "So the private banks own the Fed (and other central banks), and the central banks, in turn, own BIS. Interestingly, Spiegel points out that BIS is largely immune from regulation, oversight or taxes"

    is not subject to any jurisdiction other than international law.

    Central bankers are not elected by the people but are appointed by their governments. Nevertheless, they wield power that exceeds that of many political leaders. Their decisions affect entire economies, and a single word from their lips is capable of moving financial markets. They set interest rates, thereby determining the cost of borrowing and the speed of global financial currents.

    *CPAC. Ron Paul won it two years in a row. Last year he got 30% to Romneys 23%. Then the media began hooting for their repective partisan darlings and virtually ignoring Mr. McGoo.

    We got crossed. Let it go. Anyway, none of you really want to see what the world's federal reserves have been up to. It paints a picture of just a few men running the worlds economies. We already have a One World Order economy. International borders fall for profit, not for people. And the big ones fell long ago. They just need to scare you into abandoning your patriotism in favor of protection. 9/11 scared you. But what they have in store will scare the living sh/t out of you. People will be flushing their flags down the toilet hollering "save us. save us". Save from what? I know. Do you?

      Hey Philly, I know what's on your mind with Paul...really. You know he's literally our last chance before complete economic collapse and total disorder. Paul has to get it or it's OVA.
