Response to Original message
31. Why are people mad?
Hmmm let me list some reasons
1. Oil drilling off Coast Line of their state
2.Foreign Corporations getting away with tapping our resources and paying NO TAXES
3. Destruction of wildlife fish and shores
4. Congress for only allowing a 75 million dollar cap of re compensation (for corporations)
5. Government paying for clean up of the mess
6. Obama allowing the drilling of off shore oil wells
7.Government Agencies complete and utter failure to protect the people of the United States who pay their pay checks
from the incompetence and greed of corporations
8. Fascism of our government
9. Bail out of Banks Insurance and Brokerage firms and yet no universal health care
10 Still in the Iraq and Afghanistan War
11. Plenty of people out of work and who would love to go down and get paid for government projects such as mass transportation
12. Department of Justice lack of prosecuting criminals
13. Rising health insurance premiums
14. And allowing the raid on Social Security of Americans

People are getting fed up
This is looking like a replay in History
And nobody trusts this government NOBODY
