Storm the Corporate Bastille!
Corporations do bad things. Abusive corporate tax shelters, for example - created by abusive tax practitioners - basically stole billions of dollars from the U.S. Treasury. Wall Street often is not only greedy, but irresponsibly greedy - and apparently lacking any kind of attention span.
But none of that matters. And that's what scares me.
Monsters are being created on both sides. Mobs don't care about facts, which is why dictators love them. And we are on a dangerous road. Think I'm paranoid? Really? I urge you to check out what two people are saying this week: Rush Limbaugh and the Reverend Al Sharpton. You'll get paranoid too.
