Question: How do really really rich folks get really really rich?

Some folks would stand flat-footed, look you straight in the eyes and reply with something like; “It’s complicated.”

Albeit, as I am an apostle of common sense, (it is my fervent opinion), as really really rich people, are unequivocally really really powerful people as well, ..they circumvent the rules.

According to Webster: “cir·cum·vent,” To avoid or get around by artful maneuvering.

In layman’s terms; …

they cheat

According to Webster: “cheat,” (in context) v.To violate rules deliberately, a fraud or swindle.

Example: …

Nevertheless, if an individual wants to become really really “wealthy,” and really really “powerful,” he or she ignores the laws passed by Congress to support the authority of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission…

For a moment, I considered using a photo of Barack Obama where I placed the photo of Adolph Hitler, but he didn’t fit the bill.

Continuing…

Where was I? Oh yeah, I was expressing my thoughts on the tradition and frequency with which “wealthy and/or, powerful” folks in America ignore our Constitution.

suspending habeas corpus

(George W. Bush – was his apathy and act, ..or actual?).

According to Webster: “ap·a·thy,” n. (in context) Lack of interest or concern, especially regarding general matters of importance; indifference.

Reagan - I didn't know 1a

Ronald Reagan, (under the guise) of “senior administration officials,” secretly plotted to (sell arms to Iran) “in exchange” for (seven American hostages) held in Lebanon by a militant Islamic group in violation to the (Boland amendment), which prohibited further funding of the Contras by Congress.

(Small World).

Question: When are you folks out there, ..yeah I’m talking to you, (or more correctly, ..to those of you who possess a birth certificate indicating you were born in America), ..when are you going to wise up and start soliciting “people” to manage “our” government instead of politicians?
