Yep, greed is a big time killer and unfortunately very little can be done about it, because human beings in general are greedy. There are very few willing to help others.

Come on now people, only spend money on items of absolute necessity, and not just because it looks good and you want it. If you don't absolutely need it, don't buy it. Take that money and give it to a charity or someone you know that really needs it. Think of others before yourself. I know I do, and you can too, let it come from the heart.

If you don't buy that new laptop, or television, or whatever, and millions of others do the same, corporations will be forced to lower their prices in the long run just to survive.

Lets just put corporate greed and the people who support it in a toilet, close the lid and flush!

Although it might seem like semantics, there really is a difference between Capitalism and Corporatism.

Capitalism: An economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
 
Corporatism: The control of a state or organization by large interest groups.
 
The abuses are more a function of Corporatism than Capitalism. As a pragmatist, I ask a simple question: What system works better? Of course regulation is necessary...not because of the system, rather the people, and a lack of compassion and empathy (that "Am I my brother's keeper?" stuff). That problem is not dependent on nor correlated with any economic system.

What kind of commie pinko liberal BS is that? A deregulated pure capitalism environment where businesses can do what they want, when they want, to whoever they want without legal repercussions so they can create jobs is the only thing that can save the country. 

Who cares if there's lead in little Johnny's toys. If using lead increases margins, it's the right thing to do! And with a deregulated business environment just think of all the things businesses can achieve! Job creators are the only worthy human beings. Everyone else is just a welfare sucking leech.

 

Make no mistake..this is a holy war..Capitalism vs. Socialism.,and we must and will win because profit taking is next to Godliness!!

Corporate greed is bad, but there is something much worse:

 

A private bank, the Federal Reserve, prints money out of thin air. It then lends money to the

American government who pays interest.

 

Abraham Lincoln tried to overthrow the banksters. He introduced the Greenback. JFK tried the same

thing. The banksters took them out.

 

Democracy is not possible in our world because money is not created by governments but by a

small banking elite.

 

Good summary:

Absolutely!  Banks and bankers, I fechen hate 'em wiv a passion.

I recall reading about bankers during the Great Depression, and how they were taking dives out of high rise windows along Wall St [and others].... of how the windows were sealed to prevent bankers jumping.  Well for mine, those windows should be unsealed.... and if the bastards won't jump willingly....

I'm pretty sure nobody needs me to draw a picture.

As long as people worship the almighty dollar nothing will ever change. Sorry but that's just the way I see it. Profit is everything to some......and sometimes to the exclusion of life itself. Life saving medication can be so expensive that those who need it have to choose between putting food on the table or paying for the meds that can keep them alive. Tell me that's fair.

I don't know that it became politics, just that politicians and government were referenced to demonstrate the power of bankers.

 Anyhow, bankers are evil.... as is Google; Microsoft; real estate agents; Apple; filthy rich politicians and Woolworths.

I did watch them but they seemed a bit idiotic and a useless waste of time to me. I watched them to a point where I found them really boring and shut it off.

They are meant to be light hearted and funny. Life shouldn't be perpetually serious.

If I took life as serious as some people do, I wouldn't be here to say I don't take life seriously all the time. I just like to rant about all the stupidity going on in the world.

I don't take life too seriously because there's too much serious shit going on in the world, and I like to keep my little corner of it as tongue-in-cheek as possible.

Now if that makes me look a bit insane, that's okay.... I'd rather be insane than mad..... with stress, worry, anxiety
