    and you think because a bunch of progressives, socialists and demotards wanted to buy the votes of the many by taxing the few constitutes our forefathers by all means do so. Its an idiotic claim.

    Sorry but your daughter is an idiot because I doubt that she even knows what she is protesting. Instead of wasting her time there do some good and give all her money away so stop with the BS. What purpose does the protest do and just think how that protest is going to look on their resume.
    This is one of the problems I see with the internet

    What you think of my daughter means nothing to me, that said I am sure that you and I would be having a very different conversation in person

    I never said that "all" of Wall Street is scam, however anyone that knowingly participates in an action that causes the prices of life essential products to increase like oil speculators are bottom feeders, any one who supports bills that support the Chinese economy at the expence of American workers are bottom feeders, any one that participates or supports predatory lending is a bottom feeder, bottom feeders are people who know that their actions hurt others and do not care, they are more motivated by greed then by country.

    Can you ever respond to a post with an answer instead of questions?

    because the rich still pay a majority of all the total taxes combined. and they don't get any additional benefits for doing that

    I never get answers from you. Total tax burden has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COST OF RUNNING THE FEDERAL GOVT.

    Fannie and Freddie played a small part in the economic meltdown:

    "More than 84 percent of the subprime mortgages came from private lending institutions in 2006 and the share of subprime loans insured by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac decreased as the bubble got bigger (from a high of insuring 48 percent to insuring 24 percent of all subprime loans in 2006).[48] Despite conservative criticism for government lending programs as the main cause of the crisis,[49][50][51][52] much of the crisis was independent of government home loan programs.

    The Republicans pushed the repeal of the Glass Steagall act and Clinton signed it. I am for its reestablishment, are you?
    So I guess you admit now that we did not have adequate regulation of the banking industry?

    From what perspective TD?

    In total more of the lower classes income goes towards taxes than the wealthy. Hence a higher tax burden on the lower classes or IOW could we say class warfare on the poor.

    Tell me what purpose it serves to have your daughter protesting Wall Street instead of doing her job taking care of the sick and truly helping the poor.

    Maybe you could get a job at Solyndra? How about that use of taxpayer money?
