yourself what you would do for 10 million. How about 100 million? And then of course, how a bout 1 billion?
Here is a forum talking about global meltdown. What seems to be the main focus in this forum? Economic immoralities. Why? Simple answer, no? Money and power...
Ask yourself why it is our corporate and political moguls continue down their career paths? How does one become mega rich and hence mega powerful? You think by straight as an arrow fairness and integrity?
I would be willing to bet not one human who has made over 10 million dollars has their hands completely dirt and/or blood free.
Now, ask yourself if these same rich, powerful people for the first 25 years of their life woke up every morning and told themselves: "Hey, you know what? I cant wait until I can screw the little guy for that first million." Or "I cant wait to bend the rules and change policies for that first 10 million."
I dont think anyone went into the game with those intentions...well, maybe some...But I would be willing to bet the majority went into the game thinking they can change it from the inside...
Whats my point? The point is I would bet 99% of you (and I) would do the exact same thing... So what if a few thousand people loose their jobs...Ill make an extra 5 mill just by sending a few lobbyist to washington, sending that 5 krt. necklace to the wife of that opposition senator, and cutting a few hundred jobs...What is the big deal?
Well, maybe that is just the problem. For all our differences: democrat... republican. Liberal...conservative. Religious...non religious. We sure all seem to have one thing in common: greed.
So, I suppose if we want to stop "Global Meltdown" then we must limit greed. So to you I say: How?
Too bad because I would like to kick out 2/3 rds of the politicians in charge right now~!!!!
