  •  US Government Owned, Run and Run For the 1% (5+ / 0-)

    Hunter great post.  Eloquently sums up what is going on with our Government and why things are so bad ... for the 99%.  

    Next time a conservative friend or acquaintance bad mouths the government, I am going to ask a few questions:

    1)  Do you think the government is responsible for the poor economy?
    2)  Who do you think owns our politicians?
    3)  Do you think it is a coincidence that those who own are politicians are doing very well financially?
    4)  Do you think that the fact that 90% of Americans have lost economically over the last 30 years while the top 10% have taken all the gains may have something to do with the fact of who owns our politicians?

    I mean really is it any surprise that the government which is owned, run and ran for the 1% benefits the 1% at the expense of everyone else?  Bueller?  Anyone?
