When the President must announce that the top 25 hedge fund managers make more than all 158,000 kindergarten teachers in the United States, you know it's time to take action.

Noted, signed--thanks Darren. This is the ultimate of the super wealthy versus the poor---and why the middleclass on down is quickly being destroyed. American Bastille Day anyone? Thanks Darren. Bastille Day is July 14, my birthday. I'd love to have 2 reasons to celebrate.

Noted. Thanks, Darren.
I think I've signed this a few times sent to me by various groups; but signed again, and signature accepted.

And, why is Wall Street crying the blues when they have $1 MILLION A DAY to spend on lobbying? Apparently, the housing crisis didn't hurt their pocketbooks enough! Criminals!
Meanwhile, people are still getting foreclosed on, and food stamps have been terribly reduced in many states. But, the fat cats must need more Cuban cigars to smoke on their yachts.

Paulson, at $4.9 billion, tops hedge fund earner list for 2010
AR reports that Paulson's 2010 earnings even bested the $3.7 billion he made in 2007, when he rocketed to hedge fund fame with his enormously successful wager on the housing market's collapse.

Given the waste humans engage in with food, human lives, AND money, there is an easy argument to suggest the world's population could be sustained, but the have's would obviously resist having their inordinate share of wealth and resources (which they have no more right to than anyone else), cut.

Greed, egoism and vanity rule the roost.
