Sorry folks but there won't be any *mass awakening* until the *War on Coal* happend in which we have extreme energy shortages that these banks cannot function regulary. When people can't play their online games or watch sports or get drunk on beer then there will be people waking up and when they wake up is when things will get really scary for a while. You won't be able to tell terrorists from terrorist as they will all seem to blend in as people demand various fixes and use various measures to bring those changes.

I agree. Americans are total hypocrites.

Who would've thought that banks still have security cameras from the early 1980s! One would thought at least by the mid 2000s there would be a widespread change to make them all high defintion with high resolution screens. I wonder if these cameras still use video tapes?

Vic I agree many who control the banking industry are totally corrupt , but robbing a bank is not the way . Violent action just leads to more oppression , anarchy just screws the people on the bottom not the top ! During economic turmoil the top benefits the masses get totally shafted . Massive banking reform is needed but its hard to expect from those at the trough , the politicians . Vic I am more worried about the Communist Chinese controlling the currency because of their billion dollar surpluses with the USA dollar . Given away by the Americans buying cheap non USA made goods , Walmart shopper check the specials on aisle two . These shopper did not think about other North American Jobs , just the best price . To quote from pogo , I have seen the enemy and it is us .

Robbing the rich to feed the poor. Economy is so damn hard to understand, just goes right over my head. Somewhere, there is a pile of shiny metal that someone deems 'valuable' for whatever reason, then they print some numbers and faces on some special paper and those numbers represent that shiny metal. So it's all about gold,diamonds, oil, etc. Very interesting if you ask me. Back to the original sentence though...I think robbing the rich to feed the poor would be wrong, if they are legitimately rich. ie: Someone who started a business with money and invested money into it and worked their ass off to get where they are...but the corrupt bastards are the head of the snake that needs to be removed. They are the ones that should be taken from, stealing back what was stolen from you sounds fair to me.

I stand by my comment 100%....Jimmy, nice way to show your subservience to your masters, no matter how much they abuse you and your fellow Americans...I just wonder how far things would have to go before people would actually stand up for themselves and say ENOUGH! Public executions? Mass detentions? Everyone is up in arms when an apartment mgr. in Albany says tenants can't fly the flag, but let private businesses (yes, the Federal Reserve is a private business and is neither "federal" nor a "reserve"...) gut what is left of the American economy, and we are not supposed to do anything.. I think the magnitude of the theft is simply so great that many of us cannot comprehend it, let alone the "down the road" repercussions...which are not really that far "down the road". We, our children and Grandchildren will pay for our naivety and apathy, and our 100% aversion to violence no matter what the circumstances are. Like the Dodo birds wiped off the face of the earth, we neither flee nor fight back. I dont always agree with Jefferson, but this quote is especially poignant these days.. "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson

Nice Vic, way to show your intellegence by saying that it is ok to rob a bank! Maybe you should be a teller at the next bank someone robs.

Vic October 15, 2009 8:50 am (Pacific time)

The banks can rob us, but we cant rob them......I hope this guy and any other bank robbers get away.

I'm sure all his ex-bunkies in the Federal Prison recognize him
