It’s good to have an intelligent President for a change and I think he’s taking what steps he can do do what is necessary. As the economic crisis worsens—which it will, he will be able to do things he is not yet able to such as nationalizing banks and creating pushing through real social progress.

Oh, more “disaster capitalism” and mediating without repercussions to guilty parties? I’d say definable YES, this is Obama’s plan.

Never in history has any society had a chance to correct the wrongs of capitalists as now. Never in history have their crimes been so blatant.

Examples: Federal reserve/IMF stealing more money while they hide trillions, stealing more land then 80% of Americas and world they already own, kicking people out of their houses and stealing their land, stealing more resources, abusing more farmers and indigenous free human beings ... the ones who actually put food on our tables.

Monsanto, the company that’s taking over the world’s food supply by patenting all basic food staples and replacing them with genetically modified [GM for short] non-life sustaining ones. It’s well known anything Monsanto let’s loose on the world causes birth defects, cancer, sterility and Death due to their pesticides. Their lobbyists, lawyers and employees are sitting in every part of government as elected or appointed officials.
If this continues I suspect they are will kill off 2/3 to 99% of world’s population. I repeat, they will kill off everyone but themselves and their involuntary slaves.
Due to Monsanto’s and other pesticides ALL bees are dying. Without bees pollinating plans we are all dead within 5 to 10 years.

WTO/IMF/Committee of 300/East India Company/British bankers [Yes, they are all part of same group]:
Are playing a game with everyone’s lives for their own ends and to fill their pockets. But more so to eradicate/kill all nonessential humans.

Israel, is a non country/state and has gained it’s foothold in Palestine through terrorism, assassinations, bombings and land grabs.
It has no right to exist in Palestine. Jews already have their own “Reserved Autonomous Region” between Russia and China:

Until these wrongs are corrected Millions and even Billions are going to die, land will become totally polluted, Earth it’s self will die at a very fast rate. Unless those greedy idiots are stopped and stopped NOW we are all in mortal danger.
