How many times? How many ways? Must we be told...

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." -Thomas Jefferson-

"See where Congress passed a two billion dollar bill to relieve bankers' mistakes. You can always count on us helping those who have lost part of their fortune, but our whole history records nary a case where the loan was for the man who had absolutely nothing. Our theory is to help only those who can get along, even if they don't get a loan." - Will Rogers, 1932 -

"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance. " - James Madison -

“Bank failures are caused by depositors who don't deposit enough money to cover losses due to mismanagement” - Dan Quayle -

"Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury" - Deuteronomy  3:19 -

“I have ever been opposed to banks, - opposed to internal improvements by the general government, - opposed to distribution of public lands among the states, - opposed to taking the power from the hands of the people, - opposed to special monopolies,” - Sam Houston -

"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation." — John Adams 1787 -

“A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain.” - Robert Frost -

"It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners... is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to
bind it to our country? ... Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence... would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy. If government would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its favour alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be an unqualified blessing. In the act before me there seems to be a wide and unnecessary departure from these just principles." - ANDREW JACKSON ,1828 - 1836 -

"Once a nation parts with the control of Its currency and credit, it matters not who makes that nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile." - William Lyon Mackenzie King 10th Prime Minister of Canada -

“A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don't need it.” - Bob Hope -

"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes... Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain." - Napoleon Bonaparte -

“What is the crime of robbing a bank compared with the crime of founding one.” - Bertolt Brecht  -

"I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hand the destiny of the people."- Reginald McKenna -

“O gold! I still prefer thee unto paper which makes bank credit like a bank of vapor” -  Lord Byron -

"The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes." — Abraham Lincoln -

“I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principles of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale” - Thomas Jefferson -

"Because bankers measure their self-worth in money, and pay themselves a lot of it, they think they're fine fellows and don't need to explain themselves." -James Buchan -

"There is two things that can disrupt business in this country. One is War, and the other is a meeting of the Federal Reserve Bank." - Will Rogers -

"A person who can't pay gets another person who can't pay to guarantee that he can pay. Like a person with two wooden legs getting another person with two wooden legs to guarantee that he has got two natural legs. It don't make either of them able to do a walking-match." - Charles Dickens -

"Blest paper-credit! last and best supply! That lends corruption lighter wings to fly!" - Alexander Pope -

"The private control of credit is the modern form of slavery." - Upton Sinclair -

"Beautiful credit! The foundation of modern society. Who shall say that this is not the golden age of mutual trust, of unlimited reliance upon human promises? That is a peculiar condition of society which enables a whole nation to instantly recognize point and meaning in the familiar newspaper anecdote, which puts into the mouth of a distinguished speculator in lands and mines this remark: -- I wasn't worth a cent two years ago, and now I owe two millions of dollars." - Mark Twain

Barron's Banking Dictionary:Usury - scroll down a bit to read what will disgust almost all.

COLAs, CPIs, and the $14 Minimum Wage |

COLAs, CPIs, and the $14 Minimum Wage | - "By today’s standards $14.41 an hour might sound like a lot for a minimum wage, but it doesn’t have to stop there. At the top 1 percent of the American income distribution, average incomes rose 194 percent between 1974 and 2011. Had U.S. minimum wages risen at the same pace as U.S. maximum wages, the minimum wage would now be $26.96 an hour."

Occupy Congress 2012

I would have to say no matter who you are, It is time to OCCUPY Congress.  If you think there is a reason to let Congress know that they are no longer working for the people.  Tell them that it is time for them to change and change things that are going on in the nation and around the world.  Whether you are tired of low pay, unfair taxes, unemployment, bail outs for to big to fail giants, no medical, high cost medical, unfair foreclosures, lack of ethics in congress or anything else then head to Washington D.C. for Occupy Congress on 1/17/2012.

This is not about any occupy movement!  It is about US!  It is about the people!  It is about stopping the apathy and taking control of the nation that is supposed to be a free nation, for the people and by the people.  We can stand back or do something.  It is completely up to US!
