    A "more equitable distribution" would have been impossible.  The banking industry is worldwide and so interconnected, and worth trillions of dollars.  One or two U.S. car companies, although they are also international, is not worth nearly that much money.

      and this is EXACTLY what people in this country who go to Washington, D.C. with signs that say "socialism" are pissed about. Although some of what you're saying is true, it's also true that there was a time in the world when this country was IT. And we could have at least maintained our status, minus the monopoly, if we had just stopped sending jobs overseas. But the fucking megacorps all got together and decided that they wanted to make REAL money -- you know, not the hundreds-of-thousands of dollars that they had seen, but rather the OBSCENE TRILLIONS of dollars that they collectively now possess.

      So, we're in this bind. And the only thing that I wish that the Tea Party movement would do would be to recognize this, and direct their anger away from politicians, and direct it at the corporations. It wouldn't be that difficult to do -- except that the corporate "leaders," adept at obfuscation and projection, made a calculated move to use Washington D.C. as their scapegoat.

      That really is what is happening here. If you don't believe me, just watch thirty seconds of Fox "News."
