I am sixty-one years old and "work place" disabled ... I play and teach piano, woodwinds, and stringed instruments ... I currently instruct several music students in order to stay active and mentally focused ... We do a substantial amount of business with Guitar Center as well as its multiple internet storefronts (ie. Guitar Center owns Musician's Friend, Music123, Woodwind & Brasswind, and others ... ) I had no idea that Bain Capital was involved in the retail music trade ... From my own experience -- I can tell you that Bain Capital diminishes or destroys the standard of living for the employees of the companies it presides over ... They downgrade employees salaries and benefits to the bare minimum ... They are believers in the "right to work for less" doctrine that the Republican (and to some degree) the Democratic corporate shills and Wall Street lackeys seem to be in love with and promote these days ... A little research this morning also revealed other Wall Street involvement -- Goldman-Sachs is involved in the monopolisation of the industry ...This social control of the middle class and working poor by monopoly needs to stop ... Unfair financial leverage is being exerted on the American people ... Obama needs to take the Shernan Anti-Trust Act and start breaking these monopolies up -- industry by industry ... for the sake of the middle class and working poor ... Since this is presently unlikely -- Maybe the American workers should form citizen tribunals and establish an internment camp as well as erect some gallows in Washington D.C. and New York City... Then -- they should begin to administer some "real" justice to these corporate criminals and Wall Street shysters ... No one else will ... My students and I are going to do our small part by boycotting these blood-sucking leaches ... We might pay a little more for a guitar -- but we will know the sales person that sold us that guitar is able to put food on the family table that night ...Enough said -- First student lesson of the day is at the door ...Wishing all Care2 members a Great Day!

Pretty much proves the old saying about 'birds of a feather' because even without Romney at the helm they're still slime.

Yes, yes, I know, slime doesn't actually have feathers. Hey, I can imagine these guys tarred and feathered, can't I?
