4. We know whats

[b
]going on, and I feel so helpless when I see, and read this kind
of stuff...

I hold my nose, and cringe when I see them, ( Paul Ryan, and Ted Cruz)

talk of their vision's and I always wonder

how they became so heartless, and do they really

believe what they are saying? Were their parents, or a teacher
really mean and hateful to them? How do they learn this kind of thinking?

Ryan and Cruz, along with the 2 Koch brother's, (whom I boycott if I know
the product came from them), are beyond my comprehension...

:banghead

Triana, thank you for the link...

5. I watched this again last night for the third time. Everytime I view it

I come away angry and wondering how the ultra rich like those residing at 740 Park Ave. NYC have come to be so royal in their mindset. Who says America doesn't have royalty?

6. This documentary was awesome.

I could relate to the doorman calling the tenants DETESTABLE. I had to work in Greenwich Connecticut for many years. They often showed contempt toward us. One day a woman told one of my co-workers who asked for a little water on a hot day to drink water from the backyard hose. We became so inured to their rude behavior that when we were temporarily sent to work in Staten Island we were puzzled, wondering why people were so kind.
