68. Actually...
Edited on Sun Dec-12-10 12:20 AM by Mark D.
It was over 1 QUADRILLION. It's unimaginable. Over a thousand trillion. Not actual money, but if the 'too big to fails' bet too much in that quadrillion casino, and lost, the risk of their collapse meant the Fed and others 'had to act'. Now I think it's more like ONLY 500 trillions in derivatives. We are being held hostage financially by these bankers. It's estimated the parent family of the modern banking system, the now-largely British Rothschilds hold from 100-500 Trillion themselves. THe US power-broker Rockefellers 'only' have 10-15 trillion. The total worth of everyone worth over a million dollars, worldwide, is about 55 trillion.

These numbers are staggering, and in the hands of a few. It's a big club, and we ain't in it. (George Carlin). Every year a trillion shifts from the bottom 99% of Americans to the top 1%, since 1980. Credit rose when income fell. A couple working full time today has the same disposable income ONE PERSON had working full time around 1960. Health costs for an average family projected to hit 20,000 per year soon, even WITH health care reform in place. Now we learn of this 'bank heist'. There's little left, and it's going fast, into their pockets and not hours. As Faux News, the Kardashians and Jersey Shore keeps us occupied.
