The 2011 Wall Street Rioters are rioting at the wrong place. They should be in front of the Federal Reserve building. Fed is the Head, while Wall Street is only the hands.

The federal reserve is an evil organization that thrives on death and misery. The ultimate goal of the federal reserve is world domination and population control. All the major wars were started with the help of the federal reserve by using fake actions or blatant inaction. Useful idiots and brainwashed followers have helped the federal reserve look legitimate, but it is really just a gang of super rich criminals that only care about themselves and no-one else. The federal reserve uses the basic belief systems of people to cause fear in the population to drive the people to do things they should not.
The Biggest threat to humanity is not Global Warming, the Biggest threat to 99% of humanity is the Federal Reserve. It's only a matter of time before most of the world population is murdered because of the federal reserve. Every thing I'v seen and read points to this future.

THe instution that allowed a stock market crash, that was expected to be another recession to turn into a depression. Bywhich should of added more money into the economy to stimulate spending, growth and eventually decrease unemployment. Failing to do this, the money supply in the banks fell short of expections, which caused a run on the banks. Which then further worsened the crisis.
The Federal Reserve controls interest rates to loans given out to banks, in order to control the money supply.
