Today, take a stand and take action.

Here is a link to a petition. Show your support for jailing the bankers who have manipulated the system to impoverish you while making themselves filthy rich.

Dear Readers,

If you've been wondering why the political mud slinging suddenly seems nonsensical to you, if you're unsure as to why the candidates do not discuss or help us to understand why our country is coming apart at the seams, why our rights have been eroded, why we're spending two dollars for every dollar we take in saddling our future generations with crippling debt, why we're killing people all over the world with no end in sight, why a tiny financial elite have gotten incredibly rich while the middle class is disappearing, why whole towns, cities and counties are becoming dangerous slums, then I congratulate you.  If, however, you are not wondering, I suggest you open your eyes and consider that it might be good idea to start paying attention.  These "candidates" will only distract you from the truth.  The banking cabal owns you.  They own the media and they own the government.  You have been lied to for years.  Have a good cry.  Then wipe your tears, and go to this link.  Sign the petition and send it to as many people as you can.  Then start looking for signs that this world as we have known it may be coming to an end.  It's up to you to learn about why it has become a nightmare, so you don't contribute to it becoming a nightmare ever again.  This will end.  But what will we build then?  Only once we learn what has happened will we become wise enough to build a better world.

By the way Rich, ever hear of Libor? Mitt's having himself a little fundraiser across the pond and several of his donars just happen to be some of those very bankers. Who would've thought...?

Sully: "Mitt's having himself a little fundraiser across the pond and several of his donars just happen to be some of those very bankers." Romney up by 5 percentage points today; looks like Romney is surging. The Republicans have a lock on the House and it looks like 58 Senate seats for the Republicans. (And the Chief Justice took care of the filibuster on Obamacare-it's a tax-can't filibuster on that.) It looks like Obama's "socialist revolution" is about to come to an end with a thud. TEA. Romney is raising money in a foreign country? Don't you just hate it when the Republicans start to play the game exactly like the Democrats? In your face. And let's not forget Governor Scott Walker and his victory over the trashy teachers in Wisconsin. Good morning Sully-take your marxist president with you when you head to Havana. Buenos dias.

Richard, I suggest you read Niall Ferguson, Matt Taibbi, Yves Smith and Michael Lewis for well-researched and honest reporting of our nation's banking crisis. Name- calling and demonizing the victims of greed does not unearth the truth. IGNORANCE is the enemy of a free society. Sadly, you have allowed yourself to fall into the hands of those who will manipulate you ( and many like you) to further their greed. Divide-and-conquer methods have always distorted the truth. I'm curious about you - Are you employed? Laid-off? Is your house under water? I, too, am angry about the mess our country is in. So, I read ALOT, which includes all views, even those that are clearly uninformed and ignorant.

Sorry, don't own a television and haven't watched television for nearly 20 years. Don't have time for that-there is too much to read. When you make assumptions about someone based upon a single post, you risk making a fool of yourself. I am not a Republican and I am not a Romney supporter (although I am warming up to Governor Romney), but my vote will be cast for anyone but Obama. If the Republicans put up a stray cat named Ashley to run against Obama, I'd be voting for Ashley the cat. I am a small business owner who has been in business for 24 years-over those 24 years, my company has employed only one person. You can't get anymore independent than that. As for Sully, he hides behind a moniker and reads from que cards given to him by Democrats. The progressive agenda is just re-packaged marxism and Sully is just a progressive (marxist).
