When I was in third grade we studied Indians.  We made "Kachina masks" by getting empty 3 gallon cardboard ice cream containers and gluing feathers made from construction paper to them.

On the last Friday of every month, the Nuclear War Air Raid siren would test and we would all go to the back of the room and get our Kachina Masks, place them over our heads and hide under our desks.

"I can't see the bomb so the bomb can't see me."

I learned an important lesson there in third grade, on my knees under the desk.

Oh, yea, I forgot to say that the Nuclear War Air Raid siren STILL, some forty years later, sounds at 10 am on the last Friday of the month.  I somehow imagine that the third graders are STILL hiding under the desks with boxes on their head.  

This is a GREAT country.

Funny that Jim Willie knows where the money went, but Jon Corzine has no clue!!

We had a COMEX system failure in November.  COMEX was ready to default on gold and silver in November.  Rather than honor delivery demands in gold and silver- JP Morgan simply stole the money in the accounts that were going to stand for delivery.  They had their pockets picked while they were standing in line at the delivery window.  Notices of delivery were replaced at stolen accounts!
JP Morgan averted both a COMEX default and a European sovereign debt implosion, and notice that JP Morgan increased the amount of silver in their registered vaults by precisely the amount that was supposed to be delivered! 
This is just another financial 9/11, and THERE WILL BE MORE.

John admits he sold he stake in MF back in August.

Goldman advised John to get out and fold cuz Goldman was gunning him downm!!

John wasnt worried cuz goldman meet him in the alley with hslf the loot.

They call it a RTM. A rip off till maturity.

The way it works is Goldman and MF global keep bouncing funds berween them selves , through, soverigns and squid.

The farmers get tired of looking for their stolen money !!

And it was under the squid the whole time.

At least John admits that he has been thinking alot about it lately

Corzine gurgling as Ron Paul pours water on his face.

Ron Paul - "Where's the money douche bag?"

Corzine - "Can I call Obama?"

Paul - pouring water again - "Maybe you should call your maker!"

RP would say Corzine should be tried and jailed if guilty.  The clients should have done more due diligence on MFG before giving their money to them.  Government shouldn't get involved in private transactions except to insure fraud and theft gets prosecuted.

And this panel of stooges know that we just need more government, regulation, and funding. What a joke. The government endorses these shenanigans with fake guarantees on their legitamacy due to their regulations. Their regs are worth warm spit and we get robbed. More regs! More guarantees that these rigged markets are legitimate! Please keep playing sheeple! We need to launder some more money to ourselves! What a big bunch of bs!

Take away all the "government" insurance scams SIPC, FDIC, FHA, etc..., and let the whole ponzie, fraudulent casino come crashing down.  If Corzine walks from this, there is no rule of law anymore.  They stole clients money, just the same as if Wells Fargo took money out of your checking account to pay it's bills.  This is THEFT, and Corzine was in charge.  Corzine should also turn over his $50 million + net worth in the form of restitution just like Madoff had to.  

Anyone who still participates in this financial fraudulent without rule of law stock market deserves what is coming.  Buy some fucking gold and a gun, and tell them "out of my cold, dead hands" when they come to take them.

I'll gladly go if that is the ruling. But if you watched the movie or read the book, the narrator and tyler compromised on non-externally-violent solutions. They are simply much more productive.

You all cant have it both ways. If Obama is a puppet/teleprompter then he is complict but not the cause.

If he doesn't have the courage and intestinal fortitude to stand up to these scumbags then he is most certainly the problem.  He has taken more money from this slime than anybody in history. And he continues to take it. If he wasn't part of the problem he would end the bail outs and let them fail. If you aren't part of the solution then you are the problem.  By the way , I have read the book and watched the movie on several occassions. Do you remember the restroom scene? I don't see any place where I advocated violence.

My post was in response to the cheif, as others pointed out, ron paul is against torture. if you or any other space monkey want to advocate violence that is your thing. But if the sheeple got this type of solution associated with ron paul or anybody else who would actually improve our plight, we gotta get context built in there. The sheeple actually believe Donald Trump is a successful businessman for goodness sake and they think Ron Paul is extreme. again. we should let our voices be heard but with proper context.

*Chairman and CEO of MF Global, former Governor of New Jersey, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and former US Senator claims he had “little expertise or experience in the operational aspects of the commodity business”.   John Corzine was Chairman and CEO of the worlds’ largest derivative business by volume.  The shortfall in customer accounts may be as large as $1.2 billion, or 22%, these were supposedly “Segregated Accounts”.   (Segregated Account funds are separated from the operating accounts of the broker you're with).

 

There is more than 1 billion in customer segregated funds missing and to date no one has been held accountable.  The credibility of the entire US Banking and Brokerage industry is in question.  John Corzine will testify before a House committee today that he had “Little Expertise”.

"we , of the desert sand people tribe, never ever do anything wrong. its against our religious faith"

Uh what did that mean exactly, especially since Corzine's public faith is Jewish. 

In reality he is one of those Lucifer worshipers who believe themselves to be a god. (so do whatever you want right?)

If the Illuminati were gone, there would be no federal reserve, no eye of horus/lucifer on the back of the dollar, no "11" in Bank of America's logo, or creepy painting in their headquarters.

And I actually think Alex Jones is probably controlled resistance, used to discredit others.

I wonder- I have heard this recently too. There are many wolves in sheeps clothing. As Alex Jones himself once said- "Everyone has an agenda."  We all have to search for the truth and find out what is behind the people that we listen to.

Don't forget all those TV preachers.  Most of them are connected with the one worlders/globalist bankers/control freaks.  Ask yourself- how could Billy Graham be the pastor to all the presidents?  How could he have the high level access for some of his deals?  Interesting.

Oh, did I mention he is a 33rd degree Freemason?   just sayin'....
