EVEN

KIDS

And, there's no denying the fact that businesses, corporations and the rich

are

going

BANKRUPT,

of living conditions

for the poor and

Concerned,

Precisely!

Before there was widespread governments, before people developed their ENTITLEMENT MENTALITY

-You Know them well

- the rich.

Never forget that humanity existed for thousands and thousance of years

- without the rich

-without their businesses

-without their corporations

- without their laws

-without their Guardians Of Profit

- with their GOP!

Darned Concerned!

I didn't think you had such a cognitive resonance to reach a widespread and farsighted thought.

Hard to comprehend how you arrived at such a thought?

Divined intervention from a higher power

- No Doubt

Obama should take all of the money from rich people, and give it to people like the Whiz, then bulldoze all of their businesses. Then make minimum wage $30.00, no, $40.00 per hour, even if you have no skills. Then America would really prosper! Oh yea, I forgot where would everyone work? Oh well the govt. will just have to take care of us.

An intelligent person has only ONE THING to worry about regarding

the ENTITLEMENT MENTALITY

namely, the MENTALITY of the Rich, The republicans, their businesses and their corporations,

and that is their un-ending need to be the party that is the

GOP,

the cornerstone political embodiment for the

Guardians Of Profits

Nothing Else Matters to This

ENTITLEMENT MENTALITY,

HOOK

CROOK !
