That's simple; "Rich people don't pay taxes and don't go to jail"--at least in today's America!

And, pray, how have they been improving it while they were stealing us blind? Off-shoring these jobs and their profits. Do you really think they are the least bit interested in creating jobs here in the U.S.? They have no loyalty to any nation; only to profit.

The authorities know that big corporations have batteries of attorneys that would jump into action should any of their top echelon be cited for a felony, unless that person is dispensible to the corporation. They also know the corporations are their gravy trains, so it's a hands-off deal. The losers: we, the people. We suffered financially and psychologically for their crimes, but the fines that were imposed will never be seen by us.

If this wasn't true why does Mitt Romney get away with voting in MA when he didn't reside their. He went on National TV and admitted it so why isn't he arrested on a Felony count?

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
