2. Way back, the Brits had to decrease the peasant population
when the big farmers and landowners took over the small farms. It's the same thing. We don't need as many workers now due to mechanization, technology, and outsourcing. So, Wall Street wants to kill off the peasant class. You betcha.

14. Huh?
They do it all the time.. payday loans.. 29.99% APR credit cards, etc. Sure right now they are not doing too much of it because they did it too much and got burned.

So they went to the government for a bailout.

They will open the spigots again in a year or so.

18. WTF is wrong with you?
I advocate no such thing. The issue was if corporations want people to die or not.

20. This should not surprise anyone - Millions die in their wars of choice. Fewer people
are fewer problems with declining resources in bio-systems disrupted and even destroyed by climate change.
