One of reasons you only pay $0.13(cents) cents and not $100.00 a Kilowatt for electricity is because someone long time ago regulated the Electrical Industry so the consumer did not get rip-off, you ediot,ignorant fool.

Where did the Dolan's get their billions? From all us stooges who've been paying upwards of $150.00 a month for the privilege of the Optimum "bend over and take it up the" Triple Play.

No competition means they can charge whatever the heck they want, and they do, and we fools pay it. Remember when TV was free?

With so many rich people in this country, why are so many children and and senior citizens starving to death. The seniors can't even afford to keep heat on and many of them have to eat cat food to survice. Why don't they give some of that money to these poor individuals. Not fair. I give them credit, many of them worked Iivery hard for their money, but, Idonate some to the poor and to the children.
Thankyou
It is fair, why do people think that others should give away their hard earned money. Most of these rich people do give a lot of their money to the poor. Stop feeling sorry for the poor, some are in situations that they put themselves in.I know people that have been on social service for thirty years and can work but don't. Stop making babies you can't take care of, work two jobs if you have to.

Right, so many of the wealthy never had to work a day in their lives. Why should they try to help the less fortunate. Some of them have money that dates back to the revolutionary war.
Paris Hilton is a perfect example of the wealthy they refer to. No concept of value for the dollar and no values period. You must be a very, very cold person. Doesn't your husband do house work?

It is this kind of greed that will play a significant part in the United States loosing their title as world power. As wrong as socialism was, capitalism is not much better when the middle class disappears and all you have left is rich & poor. Really, would each of these people lose a night's sleep if they all contributed 1% percent of their worth towards education, universal healthcare and science? How much is too much? I hope they realize before its too late that they can't take their money to the cript.
Actaully Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are donating the bulk of their estates, so some of these people do great things with their wealth.

That's right. We were kidnapped and brought here in the 1600's to do the work you were too wimpy to do. And we did it well. Look at the fields we cleared and the land we broke. Now we want to get paid. If the Jew Slave of the Holocaust gets paid for a couple of years of work; they we should get paid for generations worth. You know it's true; but you are in racist denial. The day of reckoning is not far off.
So how many cotton fields did you directly work in?
