    And can their movement be taken seriously when they got happy when Kanye West showed up? They're ok with Kanye and Russell Simmons being millionaires but its not ok for someone who made that money through business?

    What's the difference for the protesters?

    There are lots of greed complacency and laziness among the corporate sector.
    They have more than enough resources to solve our country's problems but do nothing.
    They send jobs overseas to save a few dollars while their own countrymen go without.
    They support Communism in China while heaven forbid we ever have anything that resembles "socialism" in this country.
    You say people should get off their lazy behinds and tell them there is no excuse for them to be on welfare or what have you, but when corporate america sits and does nothing, you and bigeasy give the same tired excuses, and say they don't have to contribute to any sort of common good. But if they aren't contributing to the common good, then they are contributing to the common evil.

    Also, who are you calling the "smart" ones? A bunch of minimally educated redneck hillbillies (I wonder how many of THEM are on welfare?) that go to Tea Party rallies with guns promoting the assassination of the President and other liberal lawmakers?
    you would have to tax everyone making over 200K at a 100% rate to balance the budget.. ain't gonna work... what that tells you clearly is that we don't have a "rich not paying their fair share problem"... we have a runaway govt spending problem... so no, corps can't solve our problems... billions and billions of new regulations have hit businesses since obummer took over... corps are not lazy.. their just not going to sit back and take it in the shorts when they can avoid it.. they would rather build and hire here, but govt regulations, unions and the highest corporate tax rate in the world is the problem... not our most successful citizens in the private sector;

    citizens doing business with china does not mean they support communism anymore than our purchase of saudi oil indicates acceptance of sharia law and the abuse of women over there...

    corporations have always operated under the # 1 goal of profits and they only hire when their current workforce isn't sufficient to handle the demand for their products and services... "evil" is when you run up 4 trillion in debt for our children to have to pay...just so you can get political favors and kickbacks in political donations... solyndra.. and now another one who got close to a billion and moved the jobs to mexico.. that is what evil is.. not when you are part of a group paying the lion's share of the taxes only to watch them get pissed away by anti american democrats who don't care about the country's future...

    you wanna bet who pays more in taxes between occupy wall streeters and tea party folks?...really?... you wanna go there? the guy who brought a rifle did not threaten anybody... it was over the top but he was just demonstrating his 2nd amendment rights... tea partiers didn't go to jail for disrupting businesses and defacating on police cars.. the occupy wall streeters are calling for violence right now ... anti capitalism signs are the norm and that is what made us # 1.. .tea partiers protested govt and it's distructive and wasteful ways... our govt is like a family making 22K with 160,000 in debt.. that is what is going to destroy our country if we don't act... the tea partiers are patriotic and care for our country's future.. they love our country.. the occupy wall streeters HATE America and only want to confiscate the property of others..they don't want America to thrive...

    spot on alex.. fannie and freddie wrote the loose guidelines and bought the loans...they are indeed govt intentities... banks made tons of money until the bust happened... some service providers covered up the delenquencies to keep the lending going.. but they are not going to jail or get in trouble because they have the politicians by the balls ... check out the gov of NY and his past position with HUD if you want to know how things work.. repubs tried to curtail and rein this stuff in but had they hollered louder, the left would have accused them of denying homes to poor people.. the repubs tried but they should have shouted louder and done the right thing instead of being afraid politically from the left and the 4th branch of govt which is the lamestream media

    Yeah, I figured that article would get that kind of response.
    Tell you what Alex, you and Big Easy can have this board.
    Neither one of you is interested in any kind of debate or sharing differences of opinion.
    You are both convinced that you are right and anyone who disagrees with you is wrong.
    And to top that off, both of you feel obligated to make nasty comments about anyone who posts something different than what you both believe.

    MTJ- No wonder this board is dead.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again. There's no point in talking to the spoiled brats that make up the insane lunatic fringe that make up the Conservatives of this country (Including those two)

    PS: I don't support us buying Saudi oil either.
    And as far as regulations go, "The reason why they want a smaller government is the same reason why criminals want less cops on the street."
