Umm.. I may be naive, but isnt the cost of living (taxes/gas/homes) less in De. because of all the "big" businesses there? (which are there because of tax breaks) Gee, when I started a business, i did it to make money, and if a place gave me good breaks, I would go there. Shame on me for thinking otherwise.

Only right wingers want to discuss OWS? Doesn't it take two sides to make a discussion happen? The posts so far certainly are far from all right wing. Open minds means actually having an open mind, not just thinking one's mind is open. For the record, I'm not Republican....I am a rare breed...a true independent. And NO I don't live in DE, but I am moving there....and I've been there 5 or 6 weekends (and a few weekdays) in the last 6 months. I don't believe these forums were made just for people who live in a certain area.

It's not that the business laws are loose, we give tax breaks to businesses that INC here and if they didn't, YOU would be paying those taxes. DE is one of the cheapest states to live in because of that so I'm not complaining! I do agree something has to give with the big banks and incorporations, but if anything they need to be taxed more (along with the richest 1 or 2% of the population).

I don't engage in debate with right wingers and I'm not going to start here. One can't argue to invincible ignorance.

But this is the Delaware forum and this conversation needs to stay Delaware-centric.

Congress can't tie it's own shoes. They will form a Committee with Max Baucus, Alan Simpson, John McCain, Joe loserman and a few other Vogons and study the issue to death

I guess they feel some of the money we spend on missiles, tanks, bombs ect, is on Wall Street?

Maybe they should be in Washington D.C?

Ever hear of the military-industrial complex? The problem is both Wall Street and the politicians who do the bidding of their capitalist overlords.
