?Obama later told a friend that the angriest he got as president in his first year was when he heard [CEO Lloyd] Blankfein? justify his compensation by saying ?that Goldman [Sachs] was never in danger of collapse. That was flatly untrue,? Obama said.
??Let me get this straight,? the president said.? ?They?re now saying that they deserve big bonuses because they?re making money again. But they?re making money because they?ve got government guarantees?.
??These guys want to be paid like rock stars when all they?re doing is lip-syncing capitalism.??
Jonathan ADLER in seinem neuen Buch ?The Promise: President Obama, Year One?.

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.
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.
