    interesting quote that makes you think

    “If you believe in democracy you cannot believe in Socialism. Socialism is the poison that destroys democracy. Democracy means opportunity for all. Socialism holds out the hope that a man can quit work and be better off. Bolshevism is the true fruit of socialism and if you will read the interesting testimony before the Senate Committee about the middle of January… you will see that a majority of the college professors in the United States are teaching socialism and Bolshevism…The worst Bolshevists in the United States are not only college professors, of whom President Wilson is one, but capitalists. William B. Thompson [Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York] is teaching Bolshevism and he may yet convert Lamont of J.P. Morgan & Company… Frank Vanderlip [President of National City Bank] is a Bolshevist…”

    -E.L. Doheny, oil tycoon, 1919 in an interview with Barron's, illustrating the fact that the ultra-rich benefit more from socialism than the "99%," because socialism means the wealth is in the hands of the politicians, and those who control the politicians ultimately control the wealth.

    (btw E.L. Doheny is who Daniel Day Lewis portrayed in "There Will Be Blood")

    The bar for failure continues to be lowered for the Wall Street/Bankster types and the republicans desire to raise the bar for all others.

    Obama did nothing but preserve the status quo for the banksters. He's let the criminals get off from Jon Corzine to Goldman Sachs

    He had to - they were BIG campaign contributors and bundlers.

    Doheny was ruthless but he was an individual who was free to speak his mind. You're an idiot if you discount his words because he was an oil baron..

    when a GA dollar didn't go quite so far in PA as a PA dollar would
