    has been squeezed to death.

     Working for less and paying more for everything. Then being asked to take a cut in pay so that the Koch Bros can operate out of Wisconsin with tax subsidies from their good friend Gov. Walker. That ain't gonna happen.

     We are talking about people's livelihoods here. We sacrificed for the bankers. We sacrificed for the stock brokers, now we are supposed to take yet another hit.

      Get used to it.

      "It's Peak Oil, baby, yeah!"

      Too many people on the globe (more than 2x the number in the "halcyon days" of the 50s and 60s people here like to remember), not enough and declining natural resource base, and a third world that feels entitled to an American standard of living (and they are, at least as much as we are).

      What we are seeing today is a fraction of what the future holds. And yeah, sooner or later people might rise up against the rich, and after horrible bloodshed they will find themselves far worse off than before.

      Such is living in an overextended world.
