    Of course they do.... That's the REAL basis of Capitalism. Those with the CAPITAL win, those without, lose.

    Why do you think it's called CAPITALIZING on someone else's misfortune?

    That's why the country was DESIGNED to have elements of Capitalism AND Socialism built into it. Too much power either way is guaranteed misery.

    It's amazing how blinded parts of our population is. Why can't they see that what they are calling for is going to hurt them and hurt them badly?

    They've been sold a bill of goods that are financed by the same people that want to rule the world with an Iron Fist(of money) and CAN'T be voted out!

    And they call our duly elected government a "Tyranny"? Wait till the sharks come cruising(if they get their way).

    King is simply stating out loud what all too many of the people running the GOP at present believe. To them, anyone working for a living, whether with their hands or their minds, are not truly human. To be human, they, like their hero, Ayn Rand, believe that you have to be totally amoral and take from others without giving anything in return.

    King, and those like him are the enemies of all that work for a living in this nation. From the school janitor to the scientist in our great institutions of learning, King despised them all.

    Unless you form a union and seize your fair share of the wealth created by the sweat of your brow. For it will never freely be given to you.
