    • On December 18, 2009, by Zeo - We need to really look at the 5% of the population who have almost 50% of all the money and ask ourselves if this disparity should really exist and if it threatens our freedom to govern fairly. A blind man could see that from the president on down all of the politicians are on the payroll of this 5%. Think about it. How many times have we all said no and the congress goes ahead and does it anyway. Displaced people have been persecuted to carry the economic burdens of this catastrophe and forced to stare at life with no income or hope, while Wall Street is laughing all the way to the bank. It’s never about the populace, rather political self preservation at the expense of the people! Somehow, we have to get rid of all the ramped corruption. Forget politics, it’s cognitively dishonest thieves on all fronts, at any cost who bailout self serving wealthy people and corporations while they could care less about the middle class who need unemployment benefits to survive.
