    you want specifics for the financiers? Watch the news much? The Ponzi scheme is alive and well...
    Your last sentence needs some work, looks like you left out a word...

    No specifics on your career? I wonder at whose expense you helped others get rich?

    Yes it is, but that is the exception rather than the norm. you are doing fine, why? I am doing fine, why?

    As for my career I could tell you my life story but then again some here would claim it to be a complete lie as anyone can say anthing on the internet. I taught people to manage a business, take pride in their performance, and individual responsibility for their results. I rewarded successful results based upon the way they were generated. A lot of successful people today due to that effort.

    While the Republican gains in the House and Senate are grabbing the most headlines, the most significant results on Tuesday came in state legislatures where Republicans wiped the floor with Democrats.

    Republicans picked up 680 seats in state legislatures, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures -- the most in the modern era. To put that number in perspective: In the 1994 GOP wave, Republicans picked up 472 seats. The previous record was in the post-Watergate election of 1974, when Democrats picked up 628 seats.

    There are various forms of extremism. Far right GOP are extreme, Far left DEM are extreme, and rarely do those people do anything worthwhile. Progress isn't made by clinging to ignorance. Currently, the far right are claiming to be the most ignorant...and are proud of it.

    So that we are on the same page, what is your definition of far right extremism?
