Leo Gerard Gets it: Banksters cycled through World Bank takeover Italy and Hillary Clinton 'wants to quit to run World Bank'.

If you think for one nano-second that Hillary Clinton would make a good Vice President or good anything for the American 99% you are higher than a kite!

Folks, Hillary is a Bankster Extraordinaire on the scale of Timoth Geithner and both are an EXCURIATINGLY BAD reflection on Obama. WOW, it is imperative that everbody understand this if you want Obama to be "all he can be" for the 99%.

US Bank and Tarp

Thom,

I can not speak to why the person you talked about on the show today did not get a mondification loan but what I can tell you is we (at the bank) were told all of the tarp money we were given was given right back. We did not want it and were the first bank to pay it back in full.

Now I am just a grunt worker so all I know is what I am told by upper management and that is what they told us within months of when the tarp money was given out.

Love the show.

Reform Congress

One simple way to help get money out of politics is to cancel all retirement programs for all members of Congress.

In my opinion, serving in Congress was never intended to become a life long profession. Why should we provide retirement or any other benefits after service is rendered? Take the incentive out of career service so we can get some new blood in Congress constantly!

Trust me, it isn't Michael Moore or any of his Hollywood pals.

A vote for Obama does not indicate Approval, just choosing the lesser of two horrible HORRIBLE evils!

assuming there is nothing but Obama and another republican to vote for

Brad Friedman: A true investigative journalist looks into the insanity of our electronic voting system

One of the best things about having a web site named “Wisdom Voices” is that we are privileged to profile and feature individuals who have the courage and vision to speak truth to power in today’s world. We all have the need to be heard and our site provides us the avenue to let others with great wisdom do the talking.

Northern Wisconsin: Permit given to mine for gold in Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

Say good bye to that ecosystem. Also, I'm curious, the fact that they are destroying a NATIONAL forest makes me think this isn't entirely Walker's doings - if even Walker had anything to do with it at all. Hmmmmm,....federal?!

Obama: Since EU debt crisis “threatens” US Economy, it makes sense to bail-out European affiliates of Wall Street Banks.

Don't worry, Bernanke and the Gang won't flaunt the fact that he's doing it. If not an outright cash hand-out, then it will be some monkey shines involving monetary and fiscal policy, as well as interfering in the open markets.

Does anyone remember?

I'm having a problem remembering something that was on one of Thom's shows that happened in 2011 or 2010, I believe. He interviewed a fellow who was a documentary filmmaker who had financed a project with credit cards. The project went in the tank and he was stuck. He then found strategies in dealing with banks by telephone and subsequently wrote a book about it. If anyone remembers the name of the book and/or the author, I would appreciate it. thanks.

[The Birth of the Koch Clan: It All Started In a Little Texas Town Called Quanah ] Yasha Levine exiledonline

Here is an interesting profile of HARRY KOCH from http://exiledonline.com/the-birth-of-the-koch-clan-it-all-started-in-a-little-texas-town-called-quanah/

To quote from the text: [Public relations were a revolutionary development, giving ruling elites a powerful new way of controlling a democratic society without the constant need for brute physical force. Harry Koch was right in the middle of this transformation.]

Occupy the First Ammendment

Most every American is familiar with the part of the First Amendment guaranteeing the freedom of religion, or even the freedom of speech, but I thought it was important to elucidate the other 3 of the 5 freedoms outlined by the Founding Fathers. It was no coincidence that they saw these rights as the key to standing up to tyranny and combined them into one item to begin the list of Bill of Rights.
