    I'd imprison criminal bankers. They're worse than the folks that peddle drugs.

    I think the way America's economy works needs to be changed. The idea of trickle down economics, needs to end. The people in power should stop assuming that people should be happy with any job they can get, even if there is no way that they can survive on that income. They need to offer us a solution, they don't seem to have any problem giving money to banks, I think they should give us the same.

    If the government can continually bail out corporate America, they should be fair, and offer the same assistance to the American people without calling us filthy beggars as Romney did. And, hey instead of spending 4 billion dollars on the futures of just 4 people, why not spread that money around.

    Those people that spend their money on political agendas should be required by law to reinvest an equal amount directly into the economy. Maybe straight to pay off our national dept. That would get rid of it quick.

    I would love for all of us to learn compassion and to interact compassionately with every living thing.  Then hunger, war, racism, environmental degradation, etc., would vanish.
