These young people are speaking for the vast majority of Americans who are frustrated by the bankers and brokers who have profited on the backs of hard-working people, “While we battle it out day after day, month after month, the millionaires and billionaires on Wall Street sit by — untouched — and lecture us on the level of our sacrifice.” Gus Piliafas
Bill O’Reilly Broadcaster for FOX news recently admitted on his broadcast that he donates $1,000,000 to charity. That’s good Bill. But my Question is if you have $1,000,000 to donate to charity how much of an income do you gross every year? You donate more in one year than the 99% of us make for our entire lives. Bill, why are you such a hypocrite?! You’re part of that 1% that we find atrocious. You and your cohorts on Fox are the rudest broadcasters in the business. I’ve watched you over the years interrupt, disrespect, bully anyone that thinks differently than you. You’re part of the status quo right wing that I find offensive. Wolf is the best in
When I read this article my reasoning was why should these eleven be charged stealing from a pension fund. It seems hypocritical for our government to file any charges against these 11 people. It seems insane that our senators and representatives who have served in our government get away with stealing 3 trillion dollars from social security over the past 40 years are not being charged! And many of them have retired with good pensions and health benefits while the rest of us have to fend for ourselves. You should be ashamed of yourselves! Most of you are hypocrites! It just proves to me that most of you are self-serving without a conscience. You have sold your honor to your wealthy constituents and lobbyist. These eleven only stole 1 billion dollars while you stole 3 trillion dollars. Gus Piliafas

Republican presidential contender Herman Cain amplified his criticism Sunday of the growing Occupy Wall Street movement, calling the protesters “jealous’ Americans who “play the victim card” and want to “take somebody else’s” wealth. Herman Cain, you are out of main stream America. Your comments are without merit and your motives are self serving. That is not what these protests are all about. Herman has shown his true colors during these protests. I thought he was different but I was wrong. He’s like other Republicans that can only see their bank accounts. Shame on you Herman Cain! Your statement will have a drastic effect on your campaign. Both Republicans and Democrats are responsible for the decay of the American way of life. Even your 9 9 9 plan will cause lower class income folks on fixed incomes to file for bankruptcy. 9 9 9 favors the rich and wealthy. Most of us can’t afford food now as it is and if you tax food a 9% we’ll go without. If you tax clothing 9% we will be cold in the winter. If you tax heating, cooling at 9%, etc. you might as well throw all of us over a cliff. You lost my vote and perhaps the vote of many other Americans. And please, don’t play the race card. You sound more like a racist than Perry. Keep in mind, Blacks and Whites were not born yesterday. Race is not an issue, so don’t make it one!!
I’m reminded by our Congress that Social Security is an entitlement. I am insulted by their cold, callous remarks. Our government leaders have destroyed the hopes of future generations of retiring. Our government took (what was once a solvent Social Security system) to pay for other programs. They borrowed 3 trillion dollars from our social security during the past 30 years. And they never paid any of it back. They robbed us blind. We the people should put these corrupt individuals on trial. Oh, I forgot, they are our leaders, and are above reproach. They can do as they please without repercussions. Our elected officials tell us that SS are entitlements. Entitlement” refers to a notion or belief that one (or oneself) is deserving of some particular reward or benefit. So after a lifetime of putting money into SS you call it entitlement. Do you think we were born yesterday! You should be ashamed of yourselves. You call yourselves leaders. We, the American people are ashamed of you! You have become a modern day mafia, self serving, and corrupt. You are more interested in pleasing your wealthy constituents than doing what is right.
I’m appalled at our republican party for not embracing this call for a new minimum tax rate for individuals making more than $1 million a year to ensure that they pay at least the same percentage of their earnings as middle-income taxpayers. I am ashamed of our millionaires that their love of money is more important than their love of our country. I voted republican the last election hoping for a resurrection of truth and integrity in our Government. But you are all a bunch of hypocrites! You line your pockets with your dirty money! Shame on you democrats, you’re no better than the phony republicans. Special interest groups and lobbyist provide you hypocrites with the money you need to get re-elected. Your allegiance is not for the American people. Our forefathers would be ashamed of our government. I am ashamed of all of you. It’s time for the people to get a new government, one that is of the people, by the people, and for the people.
When I read this article my reasoning was why should these eleven be charged stealing from a pension fund. It seems hypocritical for our government to file any charges against these 11 people. It seems insane that our senators and representatives who have served in our government get away with stealing 4.63 trillion dollars from social security over the past 40 years are not being charged! And many of them have retired with good pensions and health benefits while the rest of us have to fend for ourselves. You should be ashamed of yourselves! Most of you are hypocrites! It just proves to me that most of you are self-serving without a conscience. You have sold your honor to your wealthy constituents and lobbyist. These eleven only stole 1 billion dollars while you stole 4.63 trillion dollars.
