  •  A crooked casino is not the place to gamble (13+ / 0-)

    As the word spreads out, Wall Street will become irrelevant.

    •  The problem is (8+ / 0-)

      that the remaining pension funds and retirement accounts are all tied into Wall Street.  Individuals can choose not to invest (but that's a small percentage of the population).  People are roped in through those other means.

    •  You've missed a huge point in this scam. (3+ / 0-)

      Coerced participation is essential, and after 40 years, that is locked in.

      All of the institutional investors are required to put our money into this rigged game, there isn't anyplace else for them to go. Eventually all of that money will be in the hands of the banksters as well, no other outcome is possible.

      This is not like a casino in that casino patrons enter and gamble voluntarily. This simply an ongoing mugging and rape committed by "our leader's" backers.

        us.  In the 70's, they stole our pension funds and created a government agency to pay 40 cents on the dollar.  In the 80's, they created 401 k's, and the rest of the forced participation in Wall Street casinos.  In the 90's, they robbed the banks with CDO's, Default Swaps and other pinball games.  In the 00's they combined all of these with MERS, real estate monopoly houses, and now they are buying up all of the available real estate with OUR money that they got in the bailouts.   There is not one national or extranational bank that has not engaged is outright fraud and massive record keeping crimes.  Our cities and towns were inveigled into crappy investments by their investment advisors, who were playing against them, and wrecking public pensions, municipal infrastructure and the peoples' ability to govern themselves.  Now, in Michigan, the governor ends democratic rule when the financial warfare that has decimated municipalities came to its end.  Now, all of the remaining assets will be sold off to pay the same crooks and vandals that took the money from the first 3 4 or 5 stages of this invasion of the money snatchers.  There is some value left to us.  How long will it be, and by what means will it be grabbed from us by the 1 percent and their hired quislings, I.e. Politicians and regulators.

        Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.
