  •  People are going to lose interest in participating (10+ / 0-)

    in this rigged economy.  Buy a house?  Why?  To enrich property insurers?  To enrich the banks that hold mortgages?  

    Who wants to pay property taxes to build the infrastructure that developers should have paid for?

    Who wants to buy stuff from companies that have shipped jobs overseas?  Who wants to buy stuff from companies who skirt environmental laws?  Companies that don't pay fair wages?

    And who wants to play the rigged stock market?  Do they really want to enrich the CEO's who make ridiculous salaries?

    Every aspect of the economy reeks of sleazieness.

    •  "going to"? they already have. (2+ / 0-)

      an awful lot of people have given up.
      under-the-table unreported income, gangs, organized crime, etc.
      This economy works great if you're Tony Soprano.

      Stop clapping. Stop screaming. Open your mind. Listen.
