    that we have become a plutocracy with the facts to back it up and the mechanics of how it happened.  When I try to have that conversation I hit a brick wall because it it so far removed from the reality people think they are living in.  It will take years to get this into the collective psyche.

    Everyone! Arms akimbo!

      to the general public.?  Corporate newspapers are not going to run those stories.  Corporate 'news' programs are not going to report on it.  Murdoch owns the Wall Street Journal and look at it now; the Koch Brothers are probably going to own the LA Times and The Chicago Tribune soon, further eliminating the chance of reality intruding into the pages of those once great papers.

      I suppose we could run ads, but the corporate media can just refuse to run them on some fraudulent premise.  Giant rallies will get the OWS police response.

      Unfortunately, I think things will have to get much worse before enough people realize that they are only a little better off than the factory slaves in Asia.  Then it's gonna get ugly.
