Chicago Traders Send A Message To The Protesters “WE ARE THE 1%”

This is the Chicago Board of Trade. Look at the windows in the middle of the photo.

The above photo was taken by Gene Taylor, a professional photographer who is following the protests. You can check out his website here.

I hope the people that put that up are not identified…

    It was Durbin who introduced Obama to the veiled power people who control this country to the path to the presidency. It was R. Emmanuel and others who left Obama’s cabinet after completing their mission to destruct and obstruct the lives of the 99% of the American public. Step out of the box and you’ll see that you are part of the 99% and not the 1% within the 99%.

    @lies is all they tell

    I am going through the same thing and did not know which way to go. I had a lawyer file the BK for me but he wanted nothing to do with fighting the bank and the house stuff so from that point I have been on my own. I will tell you that it has been very very difficult. My understanding is that in most cases BK only stalls the foreclosure process. I filed a chap. 7, listed the mortgage as contested on the schedules and prior to discharge filed an adversary proceeding. I am not giving advice; only telling you what I have done. If you go to:, read everything he offers on his site to get educated about the process. There are other really great informational sites available. If you can, go to an attorney for advice. I don’t have that option as I live in a state where all the lawyers are “pro” banks. My chances of eventually prevailing are none to zil, but I will carry through the process and as I told the judge, I DEMAND to have my due process! Best of Luck and let us know how it goes!

    Many are fooled into thinking all of the devils are on Wall Street…….Michael Savage said a couple of weeks ago, Chicago is running the country……from behind the scenes….and I believe him…I live here, I see it first hand….the corruption is soo bad, they just plain ignore us…..Not a word from Mayor Emmanuel about all of the fraud..NOT A WORD FROM GOVERNOR QUINN OR THE ILLINOIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY OR SENATOR DURBIN ABOUT A MORATORIUM ON FRAUDCLOSURES…..ALL QUINN CARES ABOUT IS LAYING OFF MORE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, RELEASING ILLEGAL ALIENS FROM PRISON EARLY AND GIVING ILLEGAL ALIENS KIDS FREE COLLEGE….NOT A WORD about Occupy Chicago protesters at the Fed… and for me, that says is all…

      • lvent says:

        lies is all they tell, there are no such lawsuits that I know of…these commies never thought they would get caught stealing America and now they know we are on to them……I think the line in the sand is being drawn a little more each day….

      • lvent says:

        lies is all they tell, I am so sorry to hear about the diabetes from the stress….stress can bring it out…that happened to my Grandfather though his father had it, the stress of losing his mother brought it out…..just keep a close eye on the sugar, that is what is soo important…if the sugar is not controlled, that is when you get complications………..I get conflicting stories on the bk….Some say save it, some say it does not matter, just file….that is precisely the problem, we can’t trust anyone…….this is no way to live…

      • lvent says:

        lies is all they tell, We had A+ credit too, for 26 years…so dont feel bad, this is not our fault…this was an evil commie plan…Have faith, we will overcome this evil!

    • lvent says:

      I mispoke…Michael Savage said that Chicago is running the world, not just the country….if they are, one thing is for sure, they are running the world as a proxy for the Vatican/NWO.. Dirty filthy thieves, commies, all of them..!!.

      • lies is all they tell says:

        please email me i can not sit here and wait for them to sue me i did nothing wrong. see this post you are right about chicago all obams hench men

      • lies is all they tell says:

      • lvent says:

        Was just flipping through the channels and Geraldo was reporting live from Zucatti Park at the Occupy protests. He said the people might LOOK FUNNY and some are OBNOXIOUS…(he should talk) but, they have a legitimate beef and this is definitely going to be resonating for a long time…..One protestor held up a sign that read, DEMOCRACY, NOT PLUTOCRACY…..!!!! We The People are breaking down that Foreclosuregate!

      • lvent says:

        They are evil and they are all working for the NWO…they have hijacked America under the guise of Americans and their weapon of mass destruction is false debt enslavement…they thought they would get away with forcing all of us to believe this was all our fault, we caused this and we rang the country up for $140 trillion….No one believes their lies anymore….that is their massive $140 trillion dollar collateral fraud debt, not ours…Make all of the criminals pay, including the traitor politicians who allowed this to happen to all of us and our country….This is our country, not theirs…..!!!!

    • I vent…I thought I read that California is going to give illegals or illegals kids free college…..were they not a state that not long ago was crying they were broke ? Funny…how states can find money out of air…..and our kids have to pay for college……..

  4. Andrea Guice says:

    Whoever it was that wrote the “we are the 1%” forgot to put “devils” at the end of it! That’s certain. True ‘human-beings’ feel. Wall street is a ‘manmade mechanism’ (machine) without a soul! These fools only believe in greed. Their Endgame: Hell.

    • lies is all they tell says:

      its their fun. they are bored an deprressed. remember money does not buy happiness it only helps

  5. albi says:

    The Chicago traders are actually 100% FOS. Someone needs to make them an offer they cannot refuse.

  6. Reuben Nieves says:

    Once the 1% devours the 99% they will turn on eachother until there is 1 tenth of 1 percent or less.

  7. Maybe they looking for a provocation and then they can call the protesters violent

  8. Ronmamita says:

    Just think “GREEN TOILET PAPER”!
    They only have more “GREEN TOILET PAPER” than the rest of us!
    The REAL elites are not there, they are the in castles and royal palaces.
    deciding when to implement the next step in their global game.
    When to call in the run on the banks and lock the bank doors to cause riots because the people can’t get
    their “GREEN TOILET PAPER” anymore.
    Then the wealthy financial brokers will wakeup to realize they have a lot more “GREEN TOILET PAPER” than others but it is WORTHLESS “GREEN TOILET PAPER”

    PLEASE, remind everyone to not panic when the financial collapse occurs. Simply barter and print local currencies and we will survive and recover…

    • lvent says:

      Ah, I for one am not believeing the NWO FEAR TACTICS….they are going down…their whole evil plan is a failure…..Ireland announced today, they plan on exiting the IMF….THE U.S SHOULD RIGHT NOW START COINING ITS OWN CURRENCY….AND REMOVE ITSELF FROM THE WORLD BANK/FEDERAL RESERVE…. DEBT SLAVE TYRANNY…Bloomberg reported today that there is no plan yet in place for the unwinding of the big banks…….They are going down, down….

  9. lvent says:

    The top 1% criminals in the country, is nothing to brag about…evil bastards…See the you tube video, 9/11 Coincidences….Episode 17:

  10. Daniel says:

    I can remember several years back, I think it was 2004, me and a dozen friends climbed in a van and drove thru the night from Boston to D.C. to take part in Bob Schultz’s “We The People” rally, We marched to the Capital building we shouted “obey the constitution” and “you work for us” we were very loud. Anyhow, their were federal employees on the balcony of the capital building taking a smoking break whatever, as they turned to go back inside they flipped us the bird!!! I remember thinking that they see us as peons, peasants!!!!

    • lvent says:

      Soo true Daniel…they treat us like shit…and those arrogant pieces of shit think they are better than all of us, the have all been shitting on us for decades!!!…..It is time to return the favor…!!!

      • lvent says:

        Their motto for us is, kick em when their up, kick em when their down…kick em when their up, kick em all around….Time for all of us to kick all of their deceptive, sneaky, lying, thieving, corrupt, criminal asses out..and throw all of them in prison, where they belong…and take our stolen wealth and our hijacked country back…..I was watching Brad Meltzers Decoded the other night about Fort Knoxx….they were saying these crooks stole all of our gold out of there….. They said rumor is there is nothing in there, that is what they are really guarding, the secret, not the gold.. and if the people knew they would go nuts….!!!

    typo corrected:

    it’s like the iconic photo that shows the wall street greedsters sipping champagne
    on the balcony of cipriani wall street
    and taunting the protesters below.

    (they were taunting the protestors by saying things like, “get a job!”

    asshats. people lost their jobs because of Them.there are NO JOBS because of Them.)

  12. Fury says:

    the chicago traders’ sign shows exactly why they are hated by the 99%.
    they don’t get it — the suffering they have caused.

    it’s like the iconic photo that shows the wall street greedsters sipping champagne
    on the balcony of cipriani wall street
    and the taunting protesters below.

  13. Pitchman says:

    They are symptoms.

    Wall Streets crimes and Washington’s complicity make them legitimate targets. Many of these sociopaths have to go. They are however, the minions for a larger more evil construct. That is a monetary system that demands constant growth of debt and war. And that criminal enterprise is controlled by the central banks (THE FED) and those behind them.” – Inflection Point

  14. lvent says:

    They are all so proud to be criminals who got away with it!..and Obama is a pompus ass too. Obama had a meeting with the bankers not long after his election and told them that he was the only thing standing between them and the pitchforks….I think it is way past time he got out of our way.

  15. Katheryn says:

    The 1%ers love only 1 thing…money money and more money no matter how they get it where they get it just so they get it The 1%ers are amoral The 1%ers would sell their own child if the price was right There is no level low enough to which they would not stoop to grab another dollar they will spend their after life in solitude surrounded by stacks of gold and money, the only thing in life they could love…but there won’t be any need for it there! the ultimate retribution!

  16. housemanrob says:

    …’s sociopathic and pychopathic……….common criminal behaviour……

    • lvent says:

      Time to open up a can of American whoop ass on them…meet some of the bottom 99%……the Latin Kings ring a bell?

      • lvent says:

        Those signs would be nice targets to use for target practice..

      • Fury says:

        i just just the same phrase on another thread.

        a big ol’ can of whoop ass is what is truly needed!

        ordinary people are far angrier than gangs.

        in other parts of the country, people drive cars are are far more isolated.

        in nyc, you feel the tension and anger in the air because you walk and take the subway.

        people are really desperate and mad. everyone is yelling and fighting on the streets.

      • lvent says:

        Fury, if things get any worse, they will be on our side…and…..I would rather have them on my side..

  17. lvent says:

    They are ringing hells bells..

  18. lvent says:

    They are not lying….that is where all of the put bets were placed before 9/11…My local media reported yesterday there have been no arrests made yet at occupy Chicago….Looks like these smart guys are asking for it…They have some big cahones thats for sure..they “think” they are safe.

  19. leapfrog says:

    Such “bravery” from 4 stories above the “unwashed masses” teaming below. I suggest you take your 1% message to the streets below and see what happens then…

  20. Katheryn says:

    Not Stupidity but rather Arrogance

  21. Javagold says:

    i would bet this a set-up… one is that stupid

  22. Katheryn says:

    No surprise here. Everything illegal thing they have done is blatant and in your face. I guess they figure they haven’t been blatant enough, so they are “drawing” a picture for the 99% deadbeats and idiots to make sure we are aware of “They” the elitest 1%. It’s IN YOUR FACE and there’s nothing you can do about it..nannie nannie na na. The thing is…they seem to be right…dear Lord.

    • leapfrog says:

      Yes, the laughable thing is THOSE people are not the 1% They aren’t rich enough. They aspire to it though and think of themselves as the 1%, while they are only minions and lackeys for the 1%. As George Carlin said, “Its a club and you ain’t in it.”

      • Katheryn says:

        George Carlin told it like it is he didn’t give a damn what anyone thought we need more GC’s

      • PL says:

        You nailed it.

      • lvent says:

        They place the bets, buy sell and trade for the criminals by alot of insider trading..and they make alot of money by being proxies for the ruling elite…They all make ALOT of money off of the backs of all of us..

      • The Bible says their riches are their only defense but it does not last forever…and it is theri only reward on this earth…and that we are not to be snared by the riches of this world…that does not say that we are against all who have legally earned their wealth….
