"Gentlemen, I have had you watched for a long time, and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuff's of the country.
When you won, you divided the profits amongst you,and when you lost you
charged it to the bank. You tell me if I take the deposits from the bank and
annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true,
gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty
thousand families and that would be MY sin! YOU ARE A DEN OF VIPERS AND
I INTEND TO ROUT YOU OUT, and by the Grace of the Eternal GOD, I WILL
ROUT YOU OUT " !!
President Andrew Jackson
For those who refuse to learn from the past, are indeed doomed to repeat it.. ironic isn't it? For just a bit over a short century ago, President Andrew Jackson warned that the US Bank compatriots of their greed and detrimental actions would suffer retribution. Sad to think we are at the hands, once again, of vipers and the den they toil in is the Fed, Freddie Mac and the like .
Tragic that the drunk driver never injures himself.
