    That is why it is so important that right now this minute, we start, as citizens to reframe this lunatic message, that the free market cares about your retirement, our your social security, our whether or not your street is full of pot holes.

    We need to start talking about fair markets, not free markets. Open markets not rigged markets.

    Most business won't go near any new venture in this country unless they have govt subsidies, as in a federal guarantee. The hypocricy!

      They own the message.  Well, excuse me, let me re-phrase:  Big Oil owns the message. It's a daunting task to break through this firewall.  They are a formidable opponent.  So far, we haven't been able to do it and every day it gets more and more ridiculous.  Hubby called Fox the National Enquirer of cable the other day.  Everyone knows it's bullcrap...except the people watching it.  The older folks, who they scare 24/7.  The older folks who vote. The older folks who are voting against their own grandchildren.  We all know what we have to do, the question is how?  I say forget the "news" and go on Oprah, Ellen, the View, Larry King.  Do one on one interviews outside the bubble, then if they want in, why of course!  But here are the rules!  Before the election, when Obama started going out...which he should have done way before...his approval started going up.  Gotta keep doing that!  Or keep banging your head against the wall.  

      Got Social Security? Thank a Democrat!
