You should be so excited to find out that your favorite channel, Al Gores Currant TV, was just bought up by Al-jazeera. So now you can just switch between FSTV and Al-jazeera to get that high IQ information that your so full of. Left wing hate TV and radio is doing so well in the marketplace.
Yes, and so proud of ultra-wealthy 0.5%'er Big Fat Al closing the deal before year-end so he could dodge his patriotic duty to pay the ObamaTax on his fat $100 million profit on the deal.

Amazing the amount of media outrage that's being focused on Fat Al over that, eh?

Where do you get your numbers? You seem to have very deep knowledge about things that are simply not true. You must watch MSNBC. So your "system" of "fairness" would be to take EVERYTHING a person makes above the national average income, and you think that would be fair? It would destroy the country for starters, which would be a terrible thing for humanity in the long run. We would all end up poor, and I don't think you would like standards of the new "poor".
Perhaps you are giving the rich credit where credit is not due.
Facebook,Apple,Microsoft,berks hie hathaway and many other companies were creted by those with creative minds,not the rich.
Let us look at some of the accomplishments of the rich;

Charles Keating,responsible for the Ssvongs and loan scandal of the 90's,,,,Jailbird
Michael Milliken,responsible for the junk bond fiasco..jailbird
Bernard Ebbers,ceo of World Com,Jailbird that by his illegal activities drove the company into bankruptcy,,,jailbird

Dennis Kozlowski,ADT,jailbird,
Keating and Lay of Enron,,,, Jailbirds

Bernard maddoff Jailbird

Citibank,Bac,Wells Fargo and other financial institutions that have plead guilty and paid huge fines for the debacle that nearly led to the total collapse of our economy.

The over 60 billion dollars in medicare fraud committed by rich doctors and Healthcare companies.
And the list goes on and on.

And who pays the consecuences for these illegal acts committed by the rich;

Employees and shareholders whose 401 K plans and other savings are destroyed,seldom to be regained and the taxpayers who have to foot the bills.

From Jan.'08 - Jan.'13, Obama took exactly 84 vacation days.

Bush on the other hand, took 250 vacation days covering the same amount of time without a peep about it from the right or from their supporters.
Nancy Reagan once said, "Presidents don't get vacations,they get a change of scenery, they take the job with them."

So why all the recycled phony outrage about President Obama's vacation with his family?

And pretty much every name you listed was or is a democrat that purchased special interest influence from Washington, so what's your point? The majority of the banking scandals were a result of democrats actions in congress protecting their interests over those of the American people and the country. If your point is that democrats are a huge problem and are working to destroy our country, then we agree. Take for instance the democrats war on our children. It's democrats that celebrate and rejoice over a women's right to murder her innocent, unborn child. It's democrats that started the trillion dollar a year hemorrhaging of our budgets in 2007 and continue to spend our children's money with NOTHING positive to show for it. They have already made it very clear to the republicans and the country that there will be NO spending cuts of any measure, and no balanced budget, as long as they have anything to say about it. Equating being rich with being evil puts on full display your desire to use lies to further your partisan agenda, so your obviously a democrat, and that makes you evil, fer' real!

Your ability to distort the facts has led me to conclude that you are a Sean Hannity/Rush Limbaugh clone.
It is you,who started to sing the praises of the rich and never mentioned whether they were Repubs or Dems.Now you claim the rick Dems are to blame,but ,look here. Ken Lay,ceo of Enron,was a close friend of Bush wacker and had been considered by Bush to head Energy Department.Wall Street fat cats overwhelmingly supported Mitt Romney as their presidential candidate.
Matter of fact,Florida's Republican governor,Rick ScottIn 1987, at age 34, he co-founded Columbia Hospital Corporation with two business partners; this merged with Hospital Corporation of America in 1989 to form Columbia/HCA and eventually became the largest private for-profit health care company in the U.S. He resigned as Chief Executive of Columbia/HCA in 1997 amid a controversy over the company's business and Medicare billing practices; the company ultimately admitted to fourteen felonies and agreed to pay the federal government over $600 million.
As far as who is primarily responsible for our huge national debt,

Continued from previous post
As most analysts predicted, Reagan's massive $749 billion supply-side tax cuts in 1981 quickly produced even more massive annual budget deficits. Combined with his rapid increase in defense spending, Reagan delivered not the balanced budgets he promised, but record-setting debt. Even his OMB alchemist David Stockman could not obscure the disaster with his famous "rosy scenarios."

Forced to raise taxes eleven times to avert financial catastrophe, the Gipper nonetheless presided over a tripling of the American national debt to nearly $3 trillion. By the time he left office in 1989, Ronald Reagan more than equaled the entire debt burden produced by the previous 200 years of American history. It's no wonder Stockman lamented two years ago:

"[The] debt explosion has resulted not from big spending by the Democrats, but instead the Republican Party's embrace, about three decades ago, of the insidious doctrine that deficits don't matter if they result from tax cuts."

It's also no wonder the Gipper cited the skyrocketing deficits he bequeathed to America as his greatest regret.
