Money drives the world......nothing can function without money.....you cannot barter to build a skyscraper

Money is a tool that facilitates commerce. The value of money is 'agreed' amount the people using this 'tool'. If you and I agree that a piece of plastic with the engraving of 'no-more-money' is worth a particular amount of a commodity, then you and I can transact by using that piece of 'no-more-money' plastic. The plastic has become the transacting tool that facilitate commerce between us. Just like guns don't kill people, money does not make the market evil. It is how honestly and fair we use our tools what depicts moral value, but not the tools on themselves...

OWS is creating a class of people that are not willing to work for themselves and just want the government to had them money and a house and food. Well news flash, people have to work for a living and some people have to work even harder for a living. Thats the way the world works. BESIDES, ISN'T AMERICA THE 1% OF THE WORLD? we have the best living and the best overall country in the world.....we also run the fricken world! so welcome to the 1% you are trying to destroy, its America, we are the 1% of the world and if you do't like it feel free to leave....

It amazes me to hear people talk about the best when they have experience so little... If you get a chance, which I doubt since less and less Americans have neither the desire, the means, or the bulls to travel, take a tour around the world and visit some countries that you may think they live worse that us. And as you do so rank their living by stability, prosperity and sustainability...no just profitability and luxury. And talk to us when you get back about the 'best' place to live in the world...
