So the big corporations are going to ruin their comfy lifestyle to install communism?
You realize they'd have to give up their wealth, right?
Do you people know what communism is?

Even in France, which free-market ideologues would have you believe should have collapsed around 1986, things still pretty much work. Certainly the casual visitor wouldn't notice much difference between there and the US. Apart from the superior food obviously!

noreaster...i worked in the computer networking business...i had friends in the business that were way ahead of me in the genius department. these friends told me horror stories about how their ideas were ripped off, and eve n stolen from them, because they did not have enough money to go to court to protect their work. they told me about contracts they had with corporations, big ones, that advertize worldwide, that simply didn't pay up on the legal contract for the work done, and told the person "go ahead, take us to court, we'll tie it up for years and years"
the wealthy elite cheat and steal to make their money, i've seen it, and my friends and associates has seen it, and gotton screwed over for the hard work and innovation they put into it.

The point is the US economy is BK already,,, If you have a Job its just because the FED is pumping a trillion Dollars a year into the stock market keeping the ships afloat, that means your job. The second the Fed Reserve stops putting money into to economy. The reset will take place.. They don't even have to stop just say there stopping ACCOMMODATION and everybody will run for the exits as fast as possible. You will see the biggest sell off ever in the SP500 and the Dow.. Now if you want confirmation just go to zero hedge today and check out what is really going on www.zerohedge.com...
All this talk about wealth redistribution is a straw man,,, as nothing to do with what is really going on...

wow, what a bunch of poppy-cock.
someone should trim that limb and maybe the fall will knock some sense into that thick head.
target is right or left ?
what happened to above or below ?
ahead or behind ?
that's an awfully narrow view you've got there.
you have no idea what went on or what's going on 'down here' and i'll leave it at that.
sad to read that division is what you're promoting here ... sad, sad, sad.
