    Instead of trading Stock, the better move would have been to invest the $Trillions into new businesses in USA. Companies also sat on $5 Trillion all last year waiting for Romney to win. Now that the election is over with, lots of $money was distributed to stock holders in the 4th Quarter, 2012 as Special Dividends. The rest of the money will be used to expand business and hire employees in other countries during 2013. This is the price the US Economy paid for Obama-2.

    As if they would ever cross paths. The billionaire would be riding in limos and surrounded by security. The homeless guy would be surrounded by fellow inmates in a megaprison incorporated for profit detention facility.

    Perhaps, Dear Fuzzy, that is the shape of modern politics. Those who control the money will insure that any politician who takes office who is actually on the side of the people rather than on the side of the money is punished with failure. I don’t mean there is some vast conspiracy. I mean just what you are talking about. When it comes to laws and policies, the self-interest of the few is different from the self-interest of the many, and the sheer economic power of the few is now such that it is well able to protect itself from the majority, who can now be defined as “takers.”


    Wouldn’t it be nice if we could see ourselves as all in the same boat, a boat that will raise us all at the same rate when the tide comes in? In which the income of the few and the many were both rising, and at the same rate? In which rising profits were not tied to falling and stagnating wages and benefits?

    What you are posting about would be the kind of world that Jesus Christ was truly preaching. It would not just be nice, it would be a small version of the concept of Heaven!!!

    Corporations are sitting on money because they don’t want to and don’t have to repatriate it. And one of the reasons they can’t is because the last time the government allowed them to repatriate it without a significant penalty, they didn’t use it to create jobs, but to pay executive bonuses and dividends.


    Do it again, we get fooled again.


    But this is not just American in the 21st century but most of the world: socialism for the rich; capitalism for the rest of us.

    That’s correct about the corporations not using the money to create jobs. Too bad too few know that.

    You are a worm. But a disdainful one. Enjoy your new friends only they won’t even notice you unless you are one of them.

    What, you think Obama came up with this? All the way back in 1933? No he is just a late comer to the Plutocrat party. Their Grand Plan has been busy since at least 1980 and they have been doing well it seems. We are only one economic fall away from them taking over.

    Places like Bangladesh, you mean, where it’s still legal to kill your workers?

    Which is why some people are rabid about destroying all regulations. It should be AMERICAN workers slaving away for a pittance and having buildings fall on them!

    It used to be that way during the industrial revolution.

    I wonder if rich people are so brainwashed that they think the parable of the Good Samaritan is somehow “communist”……

    Only Barry’s rich Harvard buddies have done well the past 5 years.
