Three pieces about Goldman Sachs:

(excerpt from) Digital Journal/Op-Ed
The Goldman Sachs project — New world government?
November 18, 2011

“By leading the world’s economies into chaos, Goldman Sachs is creating a situation where they can replace key government leaders with their own people.
It’s a cheap con: scare your victim then move in to offer ‘protection.’

That’s the technique that’s now being used on a global scale to oust world leaders and effectively take over world government…”

The piece at Digital Journal points out that two world leaders, in countries where there are financial crises, have connections to Goldman Sachs:

Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos has ties to Goldman Sachs.

The Prime Minister of Italy, Mario Monti, “was an international adviser to Goldman Sachs from 2005 until his nomination to lead the Italian government.”

NY Parents and Children Rally Against Bullying

Children at Occupy Wall StreetNY Parents & Children Rally Against NYPD Bullies
March in Solidarity with Occupy Wall Street

This Saturday [Today, December 10, 2011], Parents for Occupy Wall Street will march with our children from Union Square to City Hall Park to deliver a “stop bullying” message to NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly and his boss, Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  This event will mark International Human Rights Day. The children will place 5,000 paper hearts, one for each peaceful protester arrested nationwide over the past three months, in the center of the park.

WHEN/WHERE: Saturday, December 10th, in Union Square at 11 AM, the children will hold a General Assembly, and paint the paper hearts.  At 12:30pm, we will march down Broadway to Foley Sq. (State Supreme Court) and then to City Hall Park, arriving at approximately 2 PM.

“We teach our children at home and in schools that bullying is wrong,” said Mark Hamilton of Parents for Occupy Wall St. “The violence by some in the NYPD against peaceful protesters is confusing our children; we are left to explain unprofessional and inexcusable actions.” Continue reading
