    until he gets the nomination? Better to ask him right now, and don't stop with him. Everybody in the 1% parasite class should be confronted with this question. I'd love to see OWS riding the Metro North to New Canaan asking every fat cat in a suit how many secure, good-paying jobs they've created, as opposed to how many such jobs they've cut, eliminated, or exported.

    We also need to make a big deal of comparing the amount and kinds of jobs created by middle class vs. fat cat spending. A CEO who takes home 500 times the pay of a middle class worker might by a dozen Porsches made in Germany, for instance, as opposed to 500 Fords of Chevys made here. Same goes for houses :what drives the economy more, the construction, maintenance, and furnishing of a dozen mansions, or hundreds of middle class homes? Who spends a higher percentage of their income? That question answers itself.

    The rich are job destroyers, not creators. Jobs can only be created from consumer demand, which overwhelmingly comes from the 99%.

    Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.

      It could publish a directory of rich people so that the unemployed can send them resumes.  After all, if rich people create jobs, lets see it.  

      If I were rich I'd be a bit unnerved at republicans blaming me for unemployment.  

      I think alot of wealthy republican backers don't realize they are being set up.
