There is a Cree Indian Prophecy that says in some fashion or another: Only after the last tree is cut down, the last river has been poisoned, the last fish has been caught, only then will you realize that you cannot eat money. You are truly living in your own world, and will not acknowledge the path you are walking down. You with your ridiculous salaries and bonuses, inflated egos and general belief that you are untouchable. You who do not care what you are leaving to our children and their children. You who are only concerned with how much more money you can make for you and your cronies. You who only focus on how you would be impacted. You who have overpaid attorneys to find loopholes for everything under the sun. You who give tax-payer buyout money to yourselves as bonuses. You are the cause of the worldwide economic calamity we face. Your belief that you are above everyone else is repulsive. Only when you lose everything--your houses, your businesses, your families, your health--will you realize what you have done. Your money, homes, cars, boats, jewelry, stocks and bonds, all of your material possessions are meaningless. They do not go with you when you depart this world. So what are you trying to accomplish? Who is left to buy your products/services when the middle class is eliminated? The lower class struggle every day just for the basic necessities of life, yet you sit in your overstuffed leather chairs, on your corporate jets, in your limos and every other indulgence you can imagine. So, I ask you: what are you going to do about this situation which you have created? My bet is that you will continue to ignore it because, as I said before, you cannot possibly be affected by anything that affects most of us, right? Sure, keep on living in denial. When the economy completely collapses, you'll only have yourselves to blame. And when that happens, what will your money be worth anyway? You have created this problem. Go find a solution. A solution that doesn't involve any form of "what is in it for me?" Dawn Williams 27529
