Some will die in hot pursuit
And fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

    Yeah and we are not alone! Wise guy! Your just ignorant attacking the messenger and not the message which shows just how that densest your mindset is.

    If you think our form of government is looking out for us/you then tell it to all the dead veterans who fought the communist! For now we have free trade with them now and all sins are forgiven! Regardless of the leaders that told them to die for it! Regardless of who side is right!

    How many souls have died under governments saying they served their country in truth and justice while later they (governments} are proven wrong.

    Your remind me of Obama and his two face statements of accepting all governments and international bankers as our friends.

    serf

    If you don't know the past history of governments then your doomed to repeat it. I hope you get your Chance Mr. perfect.


    http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/financial-weapons-of-mass-destruction-the-top-25-u-s-banks-have-222-trillion-dollars-of-exposure-to-derivatives

    During the great financial crisis of 2008, derivatives played a starring role, and U.S. taxpayers were forced to step in and bail out companies such as AIG that were on the verge of collapse because the risks that they took were just too great.

    But now it is happening again, and nobody is really talking very much about it. In a desperate search for higher profits, all of the ?too big to fail? banks are gambling like crazy, and at some point a lot of these bets are going to go really bad. The following numbers regarding exposure to derivatives contracts come directly from the OCC?s most recent quarterly report (see Table 2), and as you can see the level of recklessness that we are currently witnessing is more than just a little bit alarming?

    Citigroup

    Total Assets: $1,792,077,000,000 (slightly less than 1.8 trillion dollars)

    Total Exposure To Derivatives: $47,092,584,000,000 (more than 47 trillion dollars)

    JPMorgan Chase

    Total Assets: $2,490,972,000,000 (just under 2.5 trillion dollars)

    Total Exposure To Derivatives: $46,992,293,000,000 (nearly 47 trillion dollars)

    Goldman Sachs

    Total Assets: $860,185,000,000 (less than a trillion dollars)

    Total Exposure To Derivatives: $41,227,878,000,000 (more than 41 trillion dollars)

    Bank Of America

    Total Assets: $2,189,266,000,000 (a little bit more than 2.1 trillion dollars)

    Total Exposure To Derivatives: $33,132,582,000,000 (more than 33 trillion dollars)

    Morgan Stanley

    Total Assets: $814,949,000,000 (less than a trillion dollars)

    Total Exposure To Derivatives: $28,569,553,000,000 (more than 28 trillion dollars)

    Wells Fargo

    Total Assets: $1,930,115,000,000 (more than 1.9 trillion dollars)

    Total Exposure To Derivatives: $7,098,952,000,000 (more than 7 trillion dollars)

    Collectively, the top 25 banks have a total of 222 trillion dollars of exposure to derivatives.

    If you are new to all of this, you might be wondering what a ?derivative? actually is.

    When you buy a stock you are purchasing an ownership interest in a company, and when you buy a bond you are purchasing the debt of a company. But when you buy a derivative, you are not actually getting anything tangible. Instead, you are simply making a side bet about whether something will or will not happen in the future. These side bets can be extraordinarily complex, but at their core they are basically just wagers. The following is a pretty good definition of derivatives that comes from Investopedia?

    A derivative is a security with a price that is dependent upon or derived from one or more underlying assets. The derivative itself is a contract between two or more parties based upon the asset or assets. Its value is determined by fluctuations in the underlying asset. The most common underlying assets include stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies, interest rates and market indexes.

    You/it left out a very important part

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington's_Farewell_Address

    Credit and government borrowing
    Washington provides strong support for a balanced federal budget, arguing that the nation's credit is an important source of strength and security. He urges the American people to preserve the national credit by avoiding war, avoiding unnecessary borrowing, and paying off any national debt accumulated in times of war as quickly as possible in times of peace so that future generations do not have to take on the financial burdens that others have taken on themselves. Despite his warnings to avoid taking on debt, Washington does state his belief that sometimes it is necessary to spend money to prevent dangers or wars that will in the end cost more if not properly prepared for. At these times, he argues, it is necessary for the people to cooperate by paying taxes created to cover these precautionary expenses. He emphasizes how important it is for the government to be careful in choosing the items that will be taxed, but also reminds the American people that, no matter how hard the government tries, there will never be a tax which is not inconvenient, unpleasant, or seemingly an insult to those who must pay it.

    I think the voting public are the one's with cow-bells here in the USA.They switch back and forth between the two party system with smoke and mirrors exchanged and presto they are corralled into debt slavery.

    Nobody here even touches on our Founding Father's leadership of how to manage our Great Republic it's a testimony of ignorance.

    I have an eye.

    Does it count as all-seeing if I need bifocals?

    Don't need to know anything about the matter except that I don't like going to the woodshed.


    Maybe you don't go.
    LOL! Your responses to this thread only further serve to reinforce the contention in my OP.[:D][:D]
