Bloomberg has unveiled that the Fed “Pumped” liquidity for 770 BILLIONS (*), to the American Banks, go get over the financial crisis. That is, they pushed a button and created value from thin air. They did it covertly, in a way that wouldn’t set the markets on High Alert mode. So, I’m wondering if, instead of giving all that money to the banks, they gave it to the People? After all, It’s the PEOPLE that can’t pay their mortgages, not the banks, right?.
Now, in America there are more or less 528 millions people. So it will be about $15000 each. Not much.
But this line of thought doesn’t work very well, because we are giving the money even to the newborn. So, let’s move the thought to the FAMILIES, that are about 115 millions. That will bring the amount to roughly $67000 per family. Better already. With $67000, a family can start a business, work and create jobs… Restarting the economy in the process.
If we restrict the “Gift” to only the families in trouble, or potentially in trouble because involved in the damn subprime, then you will understand that the problem would have been solved altogether. Moreover, everybody would have a home, no foreclosures, people would have been working and happy.
Yep… But doing things this way would have caused the collapse of several banks…
(*): From Milano Finanza:
In the latest Global Financial Stability Report, the International Monetary Fund updated to $410 Billions the total amount of loss of the world financial institutions in the 2007-10 period. The losses are relative to the total of financial institutions.
« Nel recente Global Financial Stability Report, il Fondo Monetario Internazionale ha aggiornato a 4.100 miliardi di dollari l’entità delle svalutazioni del totale delle istituzioni finanziarie su scala mondiale per il periodo 2007-10. Le perdite si riferiscono al totale delle istituzioni finanziarie.»
Well, if the ALL THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS lost $410 Billions… Where did the $700 Billions that the Fed gave to the banks IN THE USA ONLY, go? In other words, WHO THE HELL STOLE $360 Billions???
WHERE DID THOSE $360BIL GO?
Greetings citizens of the world. We are Anonymous. Since the occupation of Wall Street began we have been watching closely as countless people in cities around the world have taken to the streets in peaceful support of the movement. A show of support for a humanity free from the benefit of the few at the expense of the many. Free from corruption in our political and financial institutions, and free from the injustices caused by corporate personhood and the oppression of others. This is not the Arab Spring, Egypt, Greece, Tunisia, nor The American Autumn.
This, is mass global awakening.
The lies and corruptions that have attached themselves to our system like a parasite have been exposed.
A way to rid our world of this parasite uncovered.
The cure lies in all of us.
This is only the first wave of our brothers and sisters to awaken to the lies and corruptions taking place around them. You, my brothers and sisters bear the weight of carrying this message to the masses. You must continue to hold your ground and stand up to help educate others to these injustices. The practice of active non participation in the things we deem evil, peaceful protests, and large scale community education efforts are things each one of us can continue and teach others to help aid in the fight. This will assure us victory against tyranny in our world.
We have already seen signs of this process beginning to take hold. With the successful transfer of 4.5 billion dollars on Bank Transfer Day, and 690,000 new accounts created at credit unions in the U.S. alone, we have taken the first strike against the banks.
This will not be the last.
Occupy protests continue to grow despite the puppet media, who is bought and controlled by politicians and corporations continuing to lie about numbers involved in the protests. They have said there is no clear message and otherwise down played and belittled the protests as a whole. Yet our message has still gotten out.
Political and corporate backed entities continue to try to adopt and corrupt the movement. Trying to turn it into a tool for their own purposes, yet they fail.
Worse yet, incidents of police brutality and the revocation of the rights of our citizens are growing more common place. Corrupt elements hidden within police forces around the world have begun to inflict terror and beat the otherwise peaceful protestors into submission. Mayors, and governing officials in cities around the world have begun to send in their dogs in an effort to stamp out the growth of revolution. They have taken notice of our actions and they are scared!
These crimes against our citizens do not go unnoticed, and must not be allowed to quell our efforts in seeking freedom. We must maintain peaceful despite these atrocities and not feed into their efforts to bring us down to their lowly level of existence.
The instigators of these actions are unaware that they are defeating themselves, for we are already at the third act of the famous quote; “First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you. then you win.”
There has never been a more exciting time to be alive in all our lives.
It is important that we not be bored or let idle time pass, for the seeds of revolution against worldwide injustice have been sewn. Yet without enough nourishment they will not survive and grow to full fruition.
Citizens of the world, the power for change is in our hands. We must continue to expose the truth to the masses.
Know your own power; inform others of the immediate threat of corporations, banking institutions and the growing takeover of world governments. Maintain true to the foundations of the Occupy movement. Fight greed, corruption and corporate control of our democracy.
Continue to denounce the involvement of entities with political and financial affiliations in the movement. Express your free right to assemble via global, large scale peaceful protests.
Our efforts must not simply continue.
Our efforts must grow.
Corrupt governments, police, corporations, banking institutions and those who oppress others. You cannot kill, or buy an idea.
You are the parasite, not our citizens who gather in peaceful protest against injustice in our world.
You are outnumbered, and surrounded.
The revolution has begun, and the end of your reign is near.
We will not stand for your atrocities and injustices any longer.
We are Bradley Manning, we are Scott Olsen. We are your brother, mother, and best friend.
We are people.
We are free.
We are one.
We are Anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
You should have expected us!
Italy is finally out of the “Berlusconi Era”.
Ok, now it’s the time for Mario Monti. Who is Mario Monti? A former Goldman Sachs man.
Now, I’m only an ignorant blogger, but in the Italian history, it NEVER happened that a Government was replaced so quickly. Looks like it has been completely planned from the beginning. I trul;y hope that Italian will never have to say “Oh, Berlusconi was better…”
Oakland made history on Wednesday. Exactly 65 years after the United States last witnessed a general strike — remarkably enough also held in Oakland! — the Californian city of 400.000 came grinding to a halt as tens of thousands of people walked out on their work, school and university to join a massive march on the city’s port.
The strike was a direct response to the violent police eviction of the Occupy Oakland protest camp last week, which nearly claimed the life of 24-year old Iraq Veteran Scott Olsen, who was struck in the head by a police projectile and was hospitalized in critical condition with a fractured skull and severe brain swelling. His condition, luckily, has improved, but the outrage over his critical injuring and the brutality of the police response more generally lingers.
During the strike, protesters occupied a number of buildings. Tim Simons, a local organizer told Al Jazeera that ”after the demonstrations today, people went ahead and took over an abandoned building — a foreclosed bank owned property — and turned it into a social centre. There was no provocation at all, other than occupying a building, which is part of this movement. [It] was a very peaceful, calm, situation until the riot police moved in.”
Once again, police used tear gas and flash grenades to disperse the crowds, arresting over 100 mostly peaceful protesters. A tiny minority of Black Bloc anarchists ran amok destroying shop windows and spray-painting walls, but more importantly, an enormous crowd of peaceful protesters managed to “effectively shut down” the city’s port, one of the largest in the US.
