Greenspan's Body Count: Alfredo Pimienta, Georgina Pimienta, Priscilla Pimienta, and Emily Pimienta

It's not just the speculators and homedebtors who are victims of Greenspan's easy money. Even those wise enough to sit out the bubble and rent can be caught in the economic devastation after the collapse.

Today's story comes from San Diego, where a man and wife killed their two daughters before killing themselves.
The couple was facing financial difficulties, [police Capt. Jim] Collins said, but he would not elaborate on what those were.


Prudencio De Los Reyes, a neighbor on the other side of the Pimientas, said he didn’t suspect anything was wrong with the family. But, he and his wife, Rosario, said they believed Alfredo Pimienta “looked worried,” last week, the way he paced up and down the street and didn’t engage in small talk like he usually did.

What a tragedy. The elder girl was about to graduate from San Diego's renowned charter school High Tech High and go on to study at Cal State Sonoma.

Alan Greenspan, this family's blood is on your hands.

Greenspan's Body Count stands at 169.

On May 20 2011-one week ago my fiance James, ended his life after losing Medicaid benefits.

He suffered from severe PTSD and was denied medical benefits due to draconian budget cuts here in Washington State.

He had just purchased a home and feared losing everything due to medical debt.He could no longer afford medication. Could no longer see a doctor without having insurance- and chose not to use the emergency room as his "primary physician."

I am outraged at the "system" that coddles banking criminals and greedy corporations over the common man.

We must fight this abomination that plauges this country-

I'm ready.
