  •  while the stock market soars to the heavens...... (5+ / 0-)

    foreclosures abound, poverty rises, income inequality rises,

    All of a sudden a lot of people realized, well, hell, it is the damn corrupt system, the so-called "free market", that robs people and drives them into poverty, not because people don't want to work or earn a decent living. Clearly, this is a culmination of a trend that has taken place over 2-3 decades (longer...), robbing people of fair wage increases and giving the country the highest poverty rate--46.2 million people in 2012--since that data began to be collected.
    Definitely "Something to ponder."
