60. yeah, well that was also the good old-bad robber baron days

where greed, corruption was a benchmark and labor had no rights. it looks like they are attempting to go backwards. I can just imagine the maniacal look of greed and lust when they think of basically "prison" slave labor. oh, those fences around the building is not keeping the laborers in-no, it's keeping those trying to get a job, out. and those nets we put around the building is not for those attempting to suicide, no, it's for safety in case someone falls off the building.

these sociopaths dream of the day when they can do business in america like any other third world country and they fully control the government-any old dictator will do. CEOs in this country are the highest paid in the industrialized nations. they value ever increasing profits over the welfare of the american people and the well being of this country. I do not consider them americans, and that includes mittens.

the eighties was a mindless greedfest, where healthy american companies in the black were raided and then sold to any foreign entity. the employers weren't even a second thought, some being generational employees. if this is the new SICK mindset, i want no part of it.

if these unamerican CEOs can "threaten" with fear and intimidate their employees to further enrich themselves, then this country is dead. might as well rename it "corporate states of america." oh, and yes, there is class warfare and WS, ceos, plutocrats started it when they began screwing labor, scamming, threatening and installing those wacko blowhards in the media to convince most americans to go against their own interest.
