“The screwing of the American middle class continues with pensioners losing benefits. Americans don't seem to realize this doesn't happen in well managed nations. I'd be curious to know how Detroit's pensions we effect by the '08 economic crisis. Were they invested in AAA rated mortgage back securities sold by the Wall St. con men? Other nations don't allow huge pension short falls. Pensions are well regulated. Citizens in high quality of life nations accept their tax responsibilities. Low tax policy benefits the elite a concept that has been sold to the American people to their own loss.”

“Why is everyone surprised? They were elected on an anti government platform, and they have been successful in making government less effective. Who benefits with making the government less effective? Anyone who wants to maintain the status quo. The moneyed elite are content with the status quo.

“Standing Ovation. When half the population are living an intergenerational substance existence, the economic system is not working. The myths regarding our political and economic systems are crumbling. The truth can no longer be avoided. Democracy has been corrupted, the monied elite write the rules for their own benefit and sell their beliefs to the uninformed to support their own oppression. History shows us a corrupt system will not last forever. I hope we can evolve to a fair just system before any thoughts of violence.”

“Share holder rights? What? With 40% of assets owned by plutocrats, share rights are not even relevant, of course it's a tax issue.”

“On the Pot issue Canadian policy is pandering to American interests. The American security/ prison industry support the present status quo.

On the domestic front America uses it's drug policy to disenfranchise minorities, militarize policing and oppress it's under class It's time for rational policy to stand up to American Conservative influence Enough is enough”

“Just because the cost of the food is outrageous does not mean the portions are. The quality of the product and preparation contribute far more to the price than the actual amount of food being consumed. Or did you really think they put the equivalent of $600 worth of groceries of your plate?

So no, I don't see a moral issue. Starving kids in Africa can't eat money any more than you or I can.”
