Why do we always have Jews running and ruining the American economy?

Why do we always have Jews running and ruining the American economy?

It seems like in recent years we have always had Jews at the head of the Federal Reserve Bank and Secretary of Treasury. Even now with Obama, he is considering which Jew to appoint to Treasury.

The question is why?

Why is it that every time my wife wants me to vacuum, she gives me the lecture about being thorough?

A guy wif a vaccum cleaner canna only be so nimble.

x=area to be covered, in square feet

y/t= rate at which vacuuming can work, where t=researchable time

m=toys and other weird things that you have to avoid when vacuuming.


Can someone help me with this simple math?

I don't think you understand the way that economics work, MaGZ. You see, at least in a market-based economy like that in the U.S., one needs to encourage an environment of active consumerism. You need consumers to spend money, in order to maintain and grow the economy.

Now, when Jews are running, they need to buy running shoes. And sweat bands. And shorts, and shirts, and sports bras, and heart rate monitors, and all sorts of other stuff. And when they buy that stuff, they are helping the economy, not hurting it.

If someone were to accuse the Jews of not running, and thereby ruining the American economy, I might take this whole Jewish Conspiracy thing more seriously.

Mod WarningFolks whilst the thread's title may seem to indicate that this is intended to be a humorous thread it is in fact a "Conspiracy Theory" section thread so either respond to the conspiracy theory of the thread title and opening post or don't respond.

Um....the Jews who worked for Clinton ruined our economy? We had a budget surplus after Clinton....remember? It seems like the ones who always end up screwing up our economy are white protestant republicans. maybe we should keep them from powerful positions.

Any evidence of this "ruining"?

Often, seemingly iron-clad logic can lead to subtle errors when the premises are flawed.

IMO:

1) The economy has been better, but it's not ruined.
2) The economy is not being run by Jews.
3) Always is a long, long time.
4) The Federal Reserve Bank has limited powers, as does the Secretary of the Treasury. Unlike Santa Claus, the Secretary can't just make anything happen.
5) Obama is, no doubt, trying to find a competent, experienced, politically compatible, perhaps even politically expedient person to be Secretary.

Why is that?

Perhaps you could give us some clarification, MaGZ. At least since World War II, the US economy has been the most successful in the world. That's a stretch of about 60 years. Is this because the Jews were running it, despite the Jews running it, or unrelated to any supposed control by the Jews? In other words, are the Jews responsible for the successes as well, or just the failures?

Is it just the Jews, or do others also bear responsibility. Henry Paulson, for example, was raised as a Christian Scientist. Is he not part of the problem, or did he convert to Judaism?

Since overall the US economy has done pretty well, could you give us some concrete examples where Jewish policies have hurt the economy?

I've also used this site to look at the USA in comparison to three other countries, http://www.indexmundi.com/g/g.aspx?v...c=tc&c=us&l=en - if it is "the Jews" that are "ruining" the USA economy they should stop whatever it is they are doing since they seem to be doing the opposite to ruining!

I was going to say: seems to me the economy has been ruined far worse by a lot of White, Anglo-Saxon Protestants. Seems to me since that's the case, it couldn't hurt to let the Jews take it over. They might actually be doing the economy some good.

I think you're missing the point here.

If they're good with money, they must be Jews. Ipso facto.

If the economy is doing well, it is because the Jews are in power, and using their financial acuity to amass greater personal power and influence. If the economy is doing poorly, it is because the Jews are in power, and using their financial acuity to destroy any/all opposition.

Your whole "white, Anglo-Saxon Protestant" thing is an obvious red herring.

No, you're the one who has it wrong. If they are Jews, they are good with money.

"Seems" is a wussy word. Either we have always had Jews at the head of the Federal Reserve Bank and as Secretary of the Treasury, or we have not. If the former, please provide evidence. It really can't be that difficult to find if it exists.

MaGZ doesn't need proof. He has THE TRUTH!

Never mind he has no EVIDENCE of anything, never mind that this is another attempt by him to spread his racism and hate. Frankly, I see no evidence that Jews (or anyone else) would benefit by decimating the American economy. Quite the opposite, in fact. If anything, I would think Jews, (and everyone else), would be pressing to see the economy improve, unless you're that truly scary Jew, George W. Bush.

Oh, wait. He's not Jewish, is he?

The US is bankrupt with more debt than can ever be payed back. So far, the answer has been to create yet more debt. Perhaps the delusion that we can live off interest to be paid back by infinite growth has reached its logical conclusion and the pyramid scheme is collapsing. Time will tell. Things look very bad!

I don't think this has anything to do with Jewishness, btw, though there are unsavoury historical reasons why Jews engaged "in the one business where Christian laws actually discriminated in their favour, and became identified with the hated trade of moneylending." *[12]

In countries where other professions were open to them, such as Muslim Spain and the Ottoman empire, one finds more Jewish blacksmiths than Jewish money lenders. The high tide of Jewish usury was before the fifteenth century; as cities grew in power and affluence, the Jews were squeezed out from money lending with the development of banking." *[13]

It's not an answer it's a necessity. If the creation of money is done by debt which means interest is added to the creation of money then you've created a situation where there is always more money to be paid back than there is in existence.

You can either make up this shortfall with foreign sales or investments ( from a foreign source ) or you have to create more money. which means ore debt and more interest.

This requires an infinitely expanding economy and if the economy can't keep up then there's inflation.

no it's not... all being discussed in the Fractional Reserve thread anyway.

Nothing wrong with money lending. Nothing wrong with charging interest for it either. What's wrong is lending out money you don't have by creating it out of nothing and adding interest on it. Which is how the current system works and why it is so bad.

So I'm guessing we shouldn't expect much of a reply.

I'm actually a little afraid about my "Buschenheimer" comment above. I can just see what's gonna' happen. The good ol' Google-bots are gonna' index this thread. When people are looking for information on The Evil Zionist Conspiracy, this thread will pop up among the results. Some intellectually-challenged and overly-gullible individual (which describes an awful lot of people who will be doing that particular search) will read my post, and accept it as being true.

Next thing ya' know, there's gonna' be places all over the net stating authoritatively that Bush's real name is Buschenheimer.

Well, it's on the Internet, so it must be true!

Bush is a secret Jew just like Obama is a secret Muslim.
