Super annuation

One of the major culprits of the financial crisis is the super fund. Fund managers find the most easiest way to make profit is to go into the finance market. Do you want your superfund invested in a farm or in financial market? See what the TV ads tell U. Self value expansion in property market, stock market & finance are much faster than a factory or a farm. If nobody dares to stop it, it is never ending. Or, who cares! As long as I'm not the one who suffers and I can enjoy my cruisine as on TV

Republicans and democrats "owned " by big banks.

As long as the republicans and democrats are " owned and paid for " by the likes of Goldman Sachs and J P Morgan nothing will change. It would take a giant effort to dislodge them now. America had great leadership, then lost its way. Famous quote : "I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale." Thomas Jefferson

will it make a difference?

On one hand I applaud people demonstrating against corporate greed / private sector in America, but really, will this make a difference? Probably not, as Company CEO's and senior management are not going to forfeit suspend or compromise any potions of their overpaid salaries to be distributed fairly to worthy causes, charities and/ or other parties who really need it. This is because the private sector directs the governments of developed western countries & continues to do so.

Do a French Revolution!!

Fat cats severance pay and remuneration sometimes exceed $20 million plus. FOR WHAT? Incompetence! The workers and other lowly staff have to fight, picket and go on strike for a pittance increase offered by the big companies. Gross inequality and it's about time apathy is put aside. Don't like a company or it's policies, well boycot them. There is nothing more powerful than your dollar and feet. No sales equals no money in their coffers equals no business. Until then, we collectively are guilty.
