    Don't you love that Al Gore lives rent free in their heads while becoming filthy rich doing so.

    "Greening the planet" leads to a 1% as well, just a different one and not one that is particularly as concerned about greening the planet as greening their bank accounts.

    That's a rationale and rationales are not the result of logic and facts, just rationalizations. Poor practice and the fodder of the intellectual impersonators, or so I have been told, eh?

    I don't even reply to most of these irrationals - for obvious reasons.

    Not a rationale, but a realization that corruption and those that gain power from it exist anywhere. Being for greening the earth doesnt automatically make someone one of the good guys---as you heavily hinted. There are a host of people that take advantage of the green energy movement to line their pockets and push the green agenda for their own reasons and not altruistic ones. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    This can be said of any human endeavor in history.

    Duece, thats entirely the point. Dave wants to lay the 1% idea at the feet of Reagan when it is something that has always existed and probably always will. To try to pin it to recent history and even one political party is a fool's errand.
