Biinary arguments and false dochotomies (left vs right, rich/poor, evolution/creation, etc etc) stoke the emotional fires that so successfully get these threads off topic and the entire body politic into a frenzy. Here is left and right : anarchy and autocracy. The rest of that debate is smoke and mirrors.

There are the .1% rich ( Gates, Buffet, Tepper ) and then there is the old, old money but they are so rich they are off the radar. I do not believe for a minute that the old money families like Morgan, Rockefeller, Mellon, Dupont, Warburg. Rothschild, Edison, Fisher, Hearst, the major players of the first part of the 20th century have just drifted off to country clubs and trust fund heaven. These families ran the show for a long time and they were insanely wealthy a century ago. This a level of rich on a different planet than the nouveau riche ( Gates).
I find it interesting how the family names of such powerful old money are now invisible. I suspect these families have not lost interest in influencing the direction of public policy and public distractions as well. Its brilliant when you think about it. Good luck to the wall street protesters.

And how exactly do YOU know what these protests are about? From what the protestors are wearing and how old they are? Because they look scruffy compared to the people you play golf with? Because you can tell by looking at them on TV that they are self serving parasites, unlike the Banksters and JOB CREATORS who are Doing God's Work®?

You know what? Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Prize winning economist, has endorsed the protests. I am sure you are a lot smarter than he is, so I will just accept your judgments without question.

(i have some of the same views they have, accept to me its a govt issue/size than anything to do with capitalism)

if we dont 'exactly' know, then how do you know? i can get a pretty good idea of their message from the interviews ive seen.. i dont listen to what other people tell me they are about..

u can look however you want to in america, thats the amazing part.. you can also be protesting about how lifes not fair, and blaming others, instead of doing whatever you physically, emotionally, mentally can to better yourself and your community.. living in america it seems like its always someone elses fault. gimmie, gimmie, gimmie..

growing up in school they thought us to not listen to what others say about us, and it only matters whats inside that counts.. to me thats bs.. id rather have pride, take care of, look presentable, and among other things have a level a self respect that combined with the will can propel you anywhere you want to go and help anyone you can along the way..

i see life like a football game, be as determined as possible to be prepared and skilled enough to conquer it on your own.. dont leave it in the refs hands to be able to decide the game..


dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

You're right, it's nobody's fault that the banksters and their wholly owned politicians crashed and burned the economy and looted the wealth and the future prospects of the 99.9%, INCLUDING YOU, with their idiotic, reckless, traitorous and illegal scams.

Oh, wait. I get it now! It must be THE PROTESTORS' FAULT!

Why can't we all just get along? Why can't those protestors just go home and starve peacefully without interrupting the Fox programming that I crave of the Herman Cain 9-9-9® Plan, and Dancing With The Stars®?

...I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND that it is too challenging to learn the rules that I learned in 7th grade about the use of the apostrophe in contractions and possessives, that would be expecting too much.... but I did think that EVERYONE knew that there is only one i in Gimme

well from my post you would understand that i was exactly saying if you are able to be taken out by someone else, especially in america, look at what you did wrong.. maybe you didnt play the game right.. accountability.. dont give the refs the opportunity to decide the outcome of your game..

That sounds incoherent. One game I did play right was the one called "Language Arts" in Junior High School!

You guys being upset at 'greedy bankers' or lenders for taking advantage of an environment initially fostered by government, is like being pissed at a brown bear you cornered after he takes your face off.

I don't understand why I didn't get it sooner!

Oh, I get it now! When someone is taken out to dinner they should be gracious to the host and refrain from yelling at the referee on the TV screen showing the football game!

I understand your point: Winner take all and will everyone else just please die quietly. And you think of yourself as a winner, but if you aren't a beneficiary of the scams and aren't up there with the billionaires, you are just another sucker.

Is there a way to "double-thank" or even "triple-thank" a post?
