You guys, you do know that buildings can come down just as easily as they went up, right? Way to galvanize the pitchfork and torch mob.

And realize, you will have to walk down on the pavement with the 99 percent one of these days....

It gets kinda complicated when they realize they rely on the 99% to feed them and mow their lawns and stuff...

ellroon, like the über-wealthy of all ages past, present and probably future, they haven't a clue that they depend on any of us... not a clue. But they do see it as essential, for whatever reasons, to keep us down. After all, we might get a buck that doesn't go to a bailout of their institutions...
