    if you are employed, maybe you should take a look at who pays you for trading 40 hours per week of your life for your efforts, ie working. then take a look at your paycheck and see who TAKES whatever they want to TAKE outta that paycheck (legalized theft)and then squander it on all kinds of worthless big-gov lefty crap. as long as that arrangement continues, you are a slave to those commiecrats in that commune on the potomac and the various state legislatures.

    • I work for an honest mid size corporation. Smaller corporations cannot operate outside of the law and mislead govt. officials.

      There is nothing wrong with smaller corps. There is something very wrong with too big to fail companies like BP. These are exactly the same companies that fill the coffers of the GOP so that they can continue to make the US into a fascist country.

      • too big to fail? i don't recall any too big to fail $$$ going to bp.

        now, let's not forget about those big-gov lefties who make huge contributions to support the efforts of those big-gov lefty commiecrats in that commune on the potomac to ransack america. yes indeed, let's not forget them.

        big-gov lefty commiecrats have these characters, among others, in their pockets: American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, American Association for Justice, The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, National Education Association The Laborers International Union of North America, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), The Carpenters & Joiners Union, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Communications Workers of America The American Federation of Teachers United Auto Workers, The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers United Food & Commercial Workers Union, EMILY’s List (Early Money is Like Yeast; a national political action committee that works to elect pro-choice female Democrats), AFL-CIO, The Sheet Metal Workers International Association, The Plumbers and Pipefitters Union, The International Association of Firefighters, The Air Line Pilots Association, The American Postal Workers union.

        seiu, $28,293,482; 96% to big-gov lefties.

        nea, $30,371,930; 93% to big-gov lefties

        uaw, $26,241,902; 99% to big-gov lefties.

        lawyers, $31,967,129; 91% to big-gov lefties.

        even goldman-sachs is a heavy-hitter. $31,837,427; 64% to big-gov lefties.

        as for big-oil, there's no need to be too hard on big-oil. at least they provide millions of jobs and they provide products that hundreds of millions need and use unlike the looting and control schemes coming from those commiecrats in that commune on the potomac.

        even big-oil does its part to help subsidize all those big-gov lefty schemes. big-gov lefties should be grateful. for instance, in 2008, exxon paid income taxes of $36,530,000,000. that's more than the total amount paid by the entire bottom 50% on their income taxes.

        Income Before Tax $81,750,000,000
        Income Tax Expense $36,530,000,000
        ITR 44.7%

        here's another pathetic big-gov lefty scheme. "...legislation that would provide another $165 billion in bailouts for troubled union pension funds."

        another $165 billion! taxpayers should be burning down the internet and phone lines to those crooks in that commune on the potomac.
