I find it Interesting that small businesses have been left behind.
The only ones not to get bailed out in any way are the small guys.

However the giants oligopolies do sense the recovery. It is just more evidence of giant corporations influence in our country and their determination to control Government and eliminate all competition.

Lots of recovery for some corporations. All of the sudden, the Obamatrons seem to like big business when they were evil corporations before. Maybe it's because Obama's in charge?

Can't be. You do not actually believe Obama has blind followers ..do you??

For the record I was anti bailout from the start when Bush was directing.


We are now seeing the results of said bailouts- or lack thereof. - Those results being nothing has changed and we are right on course for the next economic calamity. Whether it is 5 or 20 years from now it will happen again.

Why is it that it appears we seem to forget about our small business owners, who are bread and butter, as usual it seems that big guys always win. When it appears Big Business is our STEAK AND LOBSTER.

Just like healthcare amongst other things is how the current administration thinks of ordinary Americans who voted them in = as PEASANTS.

The BIG guys are "in bed" with much of Congress and their ilk.

While we do not have one King the King metaphorically would be the Legislative and Executive branches.
