    Oh it's definitely the guy working six days plus overtime and barely making ends meet for his family. No way it could be those who earn a million dollars a year, pay little or no taxes, send their kids to a private school, don't worry about their family going to some shithole desert 10,000 miles away and dying in the sand. It's definitely not their fault.

    Why don't the 45MM join the happy ranks of the unemployed and stimulate the economy?

    There is no phrase that shrieks, "I'm a fucking tool and a moron" like "Wall Street Greed"

    Did you pay any attention at all to the bank thing. The government bailed their useless asses out and now they are setting on $10 trillion and it's almost impossible for those who really need the money to get a loan. It's GREED!

    Also...forget about jobs. Until they can get rid of Barack Obama there won't be any jobs.

    Of course I paid attention but I disagree the problem is banker greed. The problem is the government officials (Fed, Congress, etc) that meddled in the banking and mortgage industry. THEY created and enforced laws like the Community Reinvestment Act. THEY created the Fed, Fannie and Freddie. You can't blame the banks for acting exactly as our dear leaders in Washington told them to. Of course, I did not and would not support bailing them out but again, the problem isn't that they took the bailout money, the problem is the government that handed it out in the first place.

    When the unholy collaboration between state and business seek to screw over the taxpayer, the answer is not bigger government. The answer is limited government, equal justice and free markets, none of which we've had for at least 100 years.
