    That's right, it's hypocritical to take up an ideology that rails against the rich while accumulating $billions. It sure as **** is hypocriical.

    One of the biggest failures of Bush was not having Soros "taken care of"
    I was unaware that people concerned with the disproprtionate influence of the wealthy were required to live as paupers.

    Your post is being deliberately obtuse. People who whine about the rich who do everything possible-even unethical-to become and stay rich are hypocrites. Soros panders to the the losers and envious while at the same time, he is one of the most unprincipled money grubbing assholes the world has ever seen

    You mean like bailing out GM?

    Yes, Auto manufacturing should of fallen.

    When that happened during the sub prime crisis people should have realized how bad central banking really is, and how bad it sounds we should have seen it as the market effect to the inefficiency of central banking

    Which means the future banking crash will be much worse, and well end up turning over more of our rights to a corrupt elite

    I agree GM should have fallen and all the others that were bailed out. I'm not at all for government bailing out any business.
