Justice for Wall St. Swells

The swells of Wall Street who created the economic meltdown of 2008 should be brought to justice. If Eric Holder can’t find those culpable, the USA needs a new attorney general. It's time for some powerful people to face the music.

Moreover, the notion of corporate personhood is not only absurd, it is poisonous. Rather than being a person, a multinational corporation is more like a Frankenstein Monster, jacked up on speed. With no sense of family, community or morality, such an entity exists only to make money. Its nature is to devour our common resources and destroy anything else in its way ... including our environment, including us.

Wise up.

I expect you to run out an divest yourself of all this evil greed in your pension plan.

Norma, just because I see the concept of corporate personhood as bogus doesn't mean I won't do business with corporations. It simply means I don't think a corporation should be regarded in the same light as a human being.

Furthermore, maybe you don't realize it, but some people my age don't have a pension plan; some don't have medical insurance, etc., either.
