    At the Democratic National Convention, where one speaker after the next swears they love free enterprise, delegates and attendees (maybe some media, who knows?) were asked by Peter Schiff, posing as a anti-corporate activist, if they would support capping or banning corporate profit.

    I was waiting for Bill Clinton to come on stage last night and the person speaking before him (Mass. Senate candidate) was saying that the country was rigged. Why was the country rigged? "Because Exxon Mobil guzzles down billions of dollars of profits per year."

    I could scarcely believe my ears. Capitalism is a 'rigged system'?

    Then I thought, wait a minute, on every gallon of gas that is sold Exxon might have a net profit of 20 cents. But for every gallon of gas that is sold the federal government takes in 18.4 cents and most states take in about 40 cents per gallon. So Exxon gets 20 cents; government entities gets about 58 cents.

    Now THAT is a rigged system!

    That was the crazy woman who is running against Scott Brown for the old Ted Kennedy seat in Massachusetts. She claimed to be 1/32 part Cherokee and got a professorship at Harvard on that minority basis claim. She also is the author behind the "You didn't build that" mantra that obama picked up on and carried to the stump.

    The woman is a nut job.

    This should go over big with the democrat's corporate sponsors. Now that the dems don't have the unions to rely on for money thanks to globalization and moving the manufacturing jobs out of the country. Wall Street is the only place they can go begging.

    Maybe they've undone themselves.
