"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

A Wall Street Rally?

Please. Our rulers and their sycophants in Congress are merely playing us for chumps--again.

Why is it there are bailouts for the rich, as well as, funding for an unjust invasion of a foreign country?

Oh yea, I forgot. The rich taking of the rich. Even the Democrats in Congress are part of it. Forget about helping those folks being evicted from homes or losing their jobs.
