    This country is NOT a democracy any more.  It is a corporatist Fascist state in all but name.  That's why the CEOs and the banksters and the hedge fund bosses and the cazillionaires cash in unimpeded.  That's why the Bible-thumping Teahadists enjoy their moment in the sun.  That's why no amount of money is too much for the military.  That's why we have flags flying every-bloody-where; that's why we have school children parroting jingoistic pledges of allegiance in classrooms.  That's also why I haven't lived here for nearly 30 years and visit only rarely.
