    Eric Cantor: Hypocrite Extraordinaire

    Eric Cantor derides democratic leaders who have sympathized with the OWS protestors, "pitting Americans against Americans." Right!  Much better to pit people against teachers with their giant salaries, or firefighters, policemen, etc., like was done during the Wisconsin debate...

    Examples Of Corporate Greed I'm Most Concerned About

    Occupy wallstreet. The argument against this is the "We are the 55 percent" ****. They want to say that "we all make our own destiny" _BULLSHIT_! I did not pick my parents. If I had a rich father, I'd be working for Intel right now as an electrical engineer. I had the drive...

    Taking The Money Out Of Government
