    How many here actually agree with US government's $16 trillion bailout of European governments and banks at a time when your own economy possesses problems of its own?

    Seriously? Here is a post I made on 19 September 2011:

    Why are they protesting in USA? For those who recall my mentioning the American people would not be happy with USA bailing out Europe to tune of $16 trillion, there you go.

    EU BailoutóDonít Worry Be Happy

    19 September 2011

    ..............

    If more than $600 billion is not enough for the EUís share of bailout money from four of the biggest central banks in the world, then you have yourself one big insolvency problem. Once again, the solvency of the entire system is threatened. This is not just an EU bailout. The last global meltdown caused the Federal Reserve to create and hand out $16 trillion. That $16 trillion figure is a solid number. It came from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) compliments of a little provision Senator Bernie Sanders tagged on to last yearís Wall Street reform bill. (Click here for the complete report. This is an outrage!) So, if the U.S. Federal Reserve doled out $16 trillion the last time, how much will stopping this global meltdown cost? We will never know because the GAO Fed audit was an OTO (one-time only.)

    Hope you people do not mind my asking a couple questions.

    1. Are all posts moderated before being shown on this forum?

    2. How long does it usually take from time of posting to time such posting is shown?

    I ask this because my second post made is taking its time to show. I find this concerning.

    Hi Guru. I did not ignore your post, and post #2 was a reply that included a link to $16 trillion mentioned. I suspect it may be the included link that resulted in the post being moderated never to be seen again. I do not recall anything in rules related to links, so I am not sure.

    The protests are growing.

    Wall-Street style demonstrations with names like Occupy Los Angeles, Occupy Chicago, and Occupy Boston were staged in front of Federal Reserve buildings in those cities. A group in Columbus, Ohio, also marched on the capital city's street. And signs of support were rearing up outside the U.S. In Canada, a Wall Street rally is planned for later this month in Toronto.


    Wall Street protests continue and grow across the country

    Re: Occupy Wall Street Enters Its Fourth Day, Tensions Rise

    A Fox News producer and a protester with the Occupy Wall Street Movement had a testy exchange in an interview that didn't make it onto the air.

    A member of the movement's media team sent the New York Observer footage of Jesse LaGreca, the protester, politely but pointedly criticizing Fox News, as well as Griff Jenkins, the producer asking him questions. (Fox News has sent several producers and correspondents to the New York encampment; much of the coverage has leaned toward negativity or mockery.)

    The video shows Jenkins asking LaGreca if the movement took any cues from the protests in Greece and Europe. "I’d say that we didn’t take our cue leading off of anybody really," LaGreca says. "It became a more spontaneous movement." He then turns his sights on Jenkins, and on Fox News itself.

    "It’s fun to talk to the propaganda machine and the media, especially conservative media networks such as yourself, because we find that we can't get conversations for the Department of Justice’s ongoing investigation of News Corporation, for which you are an employee," he says.

    "We’re here giving you an opportunity on the record … to put any message you want out there, to give you fair coverage," Jenkins responds. "...You wouldn’t be able to get your message out there without us."

    "Take for instance when Glenn Beck was doing his protest and he called the President a person who hates white people and white culture,"LaGreca says. "That was a low moment in Americans’ history and you guys kinda had a big part in it. So, I’m glad to see you coming around and kind of paying attention to what the other 99 percent of Americans are paying attention to."

    Here is another one published by Forbes, quote:

    The Fed's $16 Trillion Bailouts Under-reported

    ...

    Sanders press release, dated July 21st, stated:

    ďNo agency of the United States government should be allowed to bailout a foreign bank or corporation without the direct approval of Congress and the president.Ē

    Link: http://www.forbes.com/sites/traceygreenstein/2011/09/20/the-feds-16-trillion-bailouts-under-reported/

    Unquote.

    Now, the reason this had become the subject of debate within forums I participate in UK is such bailouts of European Governments and banks were hidden. Further, when I and others informed the people we were laughed at and ridiculed until one by one we proved our arguments to be true. On reading some posts here, I suspect the same to be happening in USA. It appears the general population don't even know the extent their own governments bailouts of those mentioned, and at a time when your own economy is experiencing difficulties.

    The Wall Street protests have much in common with many protests in Europe, and there is even a Spanish column of protestors marching on Brussels gathering protestors from other member states as they go, and they are protesting the extent of EU austerity measures imposed not to mention the greed and corruption of the banks (does any of this sound familiar). There is much more to this, but that would take the focus away from your own people's fight, and that is the last thing I want to do.
