    What blows my mind is that nobody wants to do it.

    30 million people maxing out their IRA contributions is 150B, is 1% of GDP.  Not happy that the top 1% owns 40% of America?  Wouldn't take long for the 99% to do it instead.

    That's enough to take a controlling interest in any publicly traded corporation you can name except for Apple (500B) and Exxon (400B).

    Don't like Goldman Sachs?  They're tiny at 70B.

    Boy howdy is the spirit of the Declaration of Independence dead.

    And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
    And people wonder why I am so depressed and angry.
