Only 15 years ago, the price of regular gas was 99 cents a gallon. Now it's 3 dollars. Actually in the past 15 or so years, the price of living has gone up 50% across the board. And in the past couple years, corporations have been financially raping our pensions and 401k's, our government coffers, and the cost of doing business is forcing our government to debt levels never before seen. So, NOW a bank declares a silly surcharge on banking fees, a phone service announces a 2 dollar convenience fee, both of which the companies back down from. Please! It's all an act to get the citizenry to think that they have actually achieved something and have regained control of the economic system and that corporations are now at the people's mercy. Give me a break. Corporations are hoping that with the people having these few fake victories they'll not pursue corporations on the real thefts they committed against humanity. Don't let the the corporations get away with it.
