    Life is tough. A government that says it can make you more equal to others is lying.

    You want a leveling of the playing field when it can never be.

    Maybe not all the 1% ... yet the clearly you have not spent time around the uber rich or followed how they have manipulated markets, depleted natural resources and view you with total disregard.


    The uber-rich have so much wealth that they believe can insulate themselves from any collapse above everyone else, with their gated and moated communities, multi million $ multiple homes in multiple climates, access to water, security, private jets and general insensitivity to the price of anything — and hence insensitivity to the value of everything.

    While I do not demonize the entire 1% there is a very real and manipulative segment that welcomes the shrinking middle class and they gain off of each crisis and feel insulated from the shrinking natural and financial resources.

    Last poll I saw, they had a 54% approval rating nationwide with 23% still undecided. Only 23% disapproving.

    Topline Results of Oct. 9-10, 2011, TIME Poll | Swampland | TIME.com

    That makes them the most approved of political entity in the country. Higher approval than Romney or Obama or the Democratic Party or the Republican Party or the Tea Party or Congress or Liberals or Conservatives. Some of those they are two, three or even five times more popular than.

    Sorry. I won't participate in this little civil war. If you want to whine about how some people have more money than you, then knock yourself out.

    But just a quick question....who are you supporting for President in 2012? A person who won't "deplete natural resources"?
