no one DESERVES that which they cannot afford.

Which brings us to the rider of the 'pale horse'... ;)

It seems to me that the system is so tilted toward the wants of the very few that even when they royally screw up by following their greed to new depths of depravity, they still win.

The government won't allow them to fail, so it kicks a trillion or more dollars to them, thus allowing the money lenders and speculators time to forclose on the poor to further enrich themselves.

TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA!



The problem you still don't seem to comprehend is people like ME are not the "very few"...it's people like you.

In fact, I'd go as far as to say the VAST majority of the world pays their own way through life.


I am quite certain that you are not one of the "very few" I was speaking of.
The "very few" are the ones with so much money that they tell governments what to do.

They can also afford to engineer social attitudes to produce supporters of their programs to funnel capital toward the top.
Enjoy the ride dude.

In the end, you'll still be a peasant like the rest of us but apparently quite happy in the knowledge that you've served your masters well.

End post with raspberry sound.

Those darn 'terrorists'... ;)

(I'll bet this could have been avoided if we had just gotten our grubby hands on that middle eastern OIL.)

That's funny, because my new work title of General Manager comes with the ability to rent my home out and have a private title of Slumlord...and I promise you, with nearly an extra grand in my pocket per month...I am enjoying the ride immensely.
