Wall Street sold our manufacturing base to China and started selling off our municipal infrastructure to foreign investors to keep their cash flow going. When they couldn't make enough doing that, they started selling derivatives based on bad mortgages. They are running out of stuff to steal. A big chunk of what you pay at the gas pump goes to these weasels. Remember when the banks froze up in '08? The first thing that happened was the price of gas went down because they couldn't drive the futures market anymore.
They have been destorying third world countries for decades and they are doing it to us the same way.
