Our benevolent benefactors

"Today just 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all Americans combined.

Let me say that again. 400 obscenely rich people, most of whom benefited in some way from the multi-trillion dollar taxpayer "bailout" of 2008, now have more loot, stock and property than the assets of 155 million Americans combined. If you can't bring yourself to call that a financial coup d'├ętat, then you are simply not being honest about what you know in your heart to be true."
Michael Moore - His speech in Wisconsin

And thanks to the media, the schools, et. al, the 155 million people, by in large, believe that these 400 both deserve what they have and are working in the best interest of the country.
