#TOLDYA On Goldman

You ask "How can Goldman Sachs be running at 545 times leverage relative to its assets?"
And the answer is, because Goldman Sachs and the United States government are, for all intents and purposes, the SAME. FISCAL. ENTITY. And if anybody has any explanation other than that, I would love to hear it. And again, I would just encourage you to look at the people who are populating the United States government, the bureaucracy, the federal reserve banks. And look at their CVs. Where did these people come from? They came from Goldman. ‘Kay? Again, I don’t like the whole conspiracy theory worldview, but sometimes it’s real. And when it is real, you have to be brave enough to face it. That’s it.

Your Say

This is a bipartisan issue, too. It doesn't matter where people are on the political spectrum, they all think this is evil and horrible and that it must be stopped. But Goldman-Sachs and several other companies have so totally and successfully infiltrated the US federal government, they're like Hydra in the new Cap movie; its too deep, too complete, and too dug in to remove. You'll have to burn it down to get rid of it.

"You'll have to burn it down to get rid of it."

There's an app... err... an amendment for that...


Fixing the corruption that began with the Republican Party's implementation of the Hamiltonian "American System" of crony capitalism, fiat currency, central banking, "internal improvements" pork, regionally unbalanced protectionist tariffs and federal income tax won't be easy and it'll be a dirty job, but somebody's got to do it.

Call your State Rep and ask them: what are they doing, personally, about the out-of-control federal government? Explain to them why "Huh?" or "Nothing." are not acceptable responses, especially if they're running for (re-)election in a few weeks.

Andrew Jackson had the right idea with the Specie Act.

Jackson had the right idea on how to deal with Hamilton. That idea should be reconstituted, in mass.
