As Cities Start Going Bankrupt Investors get out of Municipal Bonds

    Corporate Fascist Banksters would go under if you took the fraud out of banking. 800 Trillion dollars worth of
    toxic worthless counterfeit derivatives are still off the books. It's a ponzi scheme.
    Wall Street is a criminal enterprise and the Fed
    is an enemy of the people.
    I say write all these fraudulent debts off and start over.
    Let's defund our Nazi Empire and spend the money here at home and pay for Healthcare and schools and eliminate student debt and write down the mortgage loans that skyrocketed due to banking fraud.
    We need all the banking regulations that Roosevelt
    Installed back and deal with these fraudsters with
    the Rico Act.

    For all of the Chapter 7, 11, and 13, we wish to thank the labor gangs, principally SEIU and Axme, for their tireless labors in exploiting the taxslaves of America...

    Let us forget all of the brilliant elected officials, who through their social justice ministries, aided and abetted this collapse?
