3. What frightens me
well, one of the things about the Bushes, is the Carlyle Group. They're like the 3rd largest defense contractor, are getting into many other kinds of industries (telecomm, entertainment), and they're a private organization, with NO oversight whatsoever (like SEC). They just keep getting bigger, and richer, and owning more of the world's companies.

5. They have even bought a large number of movie theaters....
They can control what is seen on their screens. Crooks, Thieves, and Ivy League Mafia is what they are.
