And you are just starting to get to the realization I came to a few years back. Extend that thought to the GOP candy date. THEY ALL have to suck up to Wall Street and the other Fortune 500 upper management types. All of the politics we have seen through most of my lifetime is Kabuki Theater, nothing more.
The chattering class gets us all lubed up over race, class, religion, age, political philosophy - anything that can divide us and get us all arguing with each other while they pull the strings. Beware the Government-Corporate complex. What a lot of people on this forum don’t care to see is that the Tea Party and OWS people:
1) Have more in with each other than they realize and
2) They are protesting against two sides of the same coin.
