    Oh,I love when a liberal has no answer they just go looking for grammer and spelling errors.
    I didn't get "A's" in High School but I know the difference between there and their. I did get "A's" in creative writing in school after I got out of the U.S. Navy though

    Sounds like a typical Wall Street success story to me...

    BUT, I'm not sure I would agree that TR and FDR (AJ really predates the Industrial Revolution) fought corporate america "tooth and nail." I just finished reading the Wilderness Warrior, and while Teddy (one of my heroes) took issue with corporate exploitation of natural resources....his passion did not come from any disgust with profits...rather it was rooted his own love of wild creatures, particularly birds. BOTH Roosevelts also had the distinct advantage of being born into a very wealthy family.....they could AFFORD to pretty much pick whatever fight they wanted.

    We all need to remember that WE, as consumers, are the ones that drive profits based on our demand of goods and services. How many here that are railing against the "corporate greed" of the banks have pulled all their cash out or divested themselves completely of these companies? My guess is none, but just a guess. If my guess is correct, then the guilty are hypocrites.
    Great post, but TR would be ridden out of town on a rail by the modern tea party as a bleeding heart liberal, and Yellowstone Park would have by now been the Enron-Exxon-BP hydroelectric field.

    Got Wilderness Warrior on my stack of "to read"...may need to bump it up, given your rec.
    God Bless PFC Jamie Harkness. The US Army's newest PFC, but still our neighbor's little girl!

    Definitely worth a LONG read!

    Don't give the Tea Party too much credit....by themselves, I don't think they could run David Duke out of town. IMHO, they were PART of the turnover party this past election. The GAP was the difference maker....the Generally All Pissed-off party!
