    You got to have customers to have a market.  Something they have all decided they would do without.  No wonder we are tanking.

      Our problem has gone beyond rich vs poor. Billionaires don't need no stinking customers. We're in an oligarchy. An oligarchy is only interested in control. What we have is a small group of billionaires who are not interested in getting wealthier. They're all past that. What they want is control. They want ownership. They own us and we owe them.
      That's The Math.
      Our "representation" has been reduced to begging our plutocrats for a more equitable oligarchy. This will fall on deaf ears. Too many have forgotten that part of the point of heavy taxation of the rich is simply to prevent oligarchy.
      But we're already there...and it's going to get worse.
