Okay, Americans, you need to know the names of these people. Learn them, recite them, teach your children, your parents, your friends. America was not made for them, it was made for us, the common man and woman, down here at the bottom. Know thy enemy, know your friends. Understand why the ruling class will not shake off their power because we ask them to.

amazing isn’t it? half of the 10 are waltons. wal-mart = largest company. these are traitors to the american dream and the peoples of our great nation. we should round them up and force them to be barristas at starbucks for a year. and then the next year have them work in a home for the elderly, and then a year after that, sweeping classroom floors, and then ….

…. stocking aisles at Wal-Mart (where Christy and Alice would get paid significantly less than Jim because of their sex), and then to a sweatshop in Jordan that makes clothing for Wal-Mart (where Christy and Alice would be underpaid, treated as slaves, and sexually abused {http://www.globallabourrights.org/press?id=0342}).

Talk about the top of the imperia-list.

Isn’t that just great.

One thig about GREED – it knows no limits.

But, the fools can’t take it with them.

I’m glad you forgot that #1 and #2 are two of the largest donators to philanthropic causes in the world.

Just because there are some bad billionaires doesn’t make them all bad…
