    "The capitalist will sell you the rope with which to hang him."

    These aren't lifestylists so it's not "ironic" (which is a word you apparently don't understand).
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Nope. Those of us who have been bother by it have always benn bother by and not just because someone of the other party is in power. But don't pretend this is an Obama invention. It's a long term problem both parties hold blame in.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Who's feeding these people? Where are they washing their clothes the one's who are living there ... ? How are they washing themselves?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yes. These folks are right about corporate greed and what's happening to the little guy. 69.34% (138,831 votes)

    Other (post a comment). 0.81% (1,613 votes)"

    I don't know.

    I couldn't see the results until I voted.

    I think it may be the same phenomenon we see here in public polls. Only its US this time.

    I think you guys are misreading them. There is something inbetween Business can do nothing wrong and down with capitalism. Just saying . . . .

    Why march on Wall Street when the problem is in Washington?
    It's in both. Much of the problem in government comes from Wall Street. ie: Geithner.

    Nobody ever signed a law to allow you to use a hammer. The program was piss poor to start with. Bush signed it.

    Which is the exact opposite of what has been said for years. Not that it will stop now either but what this says is that the earlier protests were not simply about Obama.
