The Wealthty Elite are using a Ponsey Derivative Scam scheme to increase their wealth, ie using politicians to get countries into debt ( with your taxes, what happenned to our future fund?)
and when they drive markets down and because they have emassed a sum of wealth for them selves they come in and buy up resources for cheap to ensure future profits for themselves , mostly to the detriment of the indegenous population .
Imagine you hire a cleaner to come into your home and do the cleaning then they turn around tell you you have to pay them more
and you have to pay more for everything ( phone electricity water)
and they want you to employ more of their mates to help them do their job and your keeping these people employed??
Does the above piccy have anything to do with why we let them do these things to our soverign country or is it the flouride in our water?
