  •  Our corporate-owned govt doesn't know (6+ / 0-)

    that 99% of the country exists.  We're reaching a point where our governing class is as clueless about what's going on its country as Mubarak was about what was going on in his country.

    In some ways, it's amazing that the only real agitation against this sad state of affairs is the extremely polite protests in Madison.  I'm not advocating revolution, but, in plenty of other countries, you wouldn't see the same equanimity you see here.  In fact, until Madison, the only agitation you saw was astroturf from teabaggers.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

      and that is when some hedge fund person, stockbroker, banker, some financial person really, really, really screws up and the uber rich can't play in the casino anymore to "earn" -- increase their wealth and it all goes to hell in a hand basket, then MAYBE, maybe they'll remember us, the little people, who provided them with services, who bought goods or services that some of them sold.

      Our corporate-owned govt doesn't know that 99% of the country exists.

      Eventually when their casino closes, they'll remember us.  But it will be too late for most of us.

      To every millionaire who decries they don't want their grandchildren paying for the deficit, I say: PAY MORE TAXES NOW and your grandkids won't have a deficit burden.
