I'm not angry at rich people for being rich. I`m pissed at CEOs and Congressmen for fiscally raping us.

Same here. More I read about the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, the angrier I get.

Damn, those guys are cool... They are running a business. There is a demand, they are the suppliers. They don't start the wars, Politicians start wars. If a country feels it needs to kill people to ensure its prosperity, then they turn to whomever may supply them with the best means to supply destruction.

If there were no wars, these guys would still make money as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman have their hands in more than just missiles and bombs.

And by the way, one hundreth of a percent in America is 30,000 people, not 3.

And their combined worth is around 135 billion USD. Not even 1% of the national debt.

I've been laughing at the $500,000 that OWS has in the bank. For the protestor`s that are just attacking all the rich instead of the people controlling our government this money makes OWS now part of the 1%. I still support the OWS protestors that have an actual point.

EricWRN, it's apples an oranges what you are saying. The Bush administration was literally scaring the hell out of American`s with the terrorists boggy man.

I've been studying film, so I have a good idea what commercials cost. There`s no way in hell it costs 500mil to run a campaign, but the fact that can take donations from anyone opens it right up for corruption. Where`s all this money going, who do they owe large favors too, the 1%.

Seems to me you have to start at the beginning of the political process. It`s corrupt from the start, so there`s no way to fix it at the end. You have to change the policies from the get go.
