  •  They don't NEED an economy to run... (3+ / 0-)

    they just want all the cash, and they've already got most of it.

    What do they care if everything outside their walls is a pile of shit? It worked out fine for the Lords of the Manors for centuries during the middle ages; today's plutocrats just want to live that lifestyle.

    I would like it - love it - if your assertions were true - and maybe they will come true - but I'm not seeing it yet. All I'm seeing is complacency and a willingness on the part of most Americans to keep capitulating to the Haves and the Have-Mores, and voting for the people who will ensure that status quo.

    •  Actually, they do (0+ / 0-)

      The economy is very important to the wealthy.  Otherwise they wouldn't run these businesses designed to capture our income.

      It's just that some of these idiots have this un-earned sense of economic superiority (not so much class as knowledge) and think that no matter what they do, "business principles" ensure that they will win every time, even as they violently destroy the goose that laid the golden egg.

      The wealthy are not infallible.  Far from it.  They are just as often idiots and morons as the rest of us.

      Just in case you forgot today: REPUBLICANS VOTED TO END MEDICARE. AND THEY'LL DO IT AGAIN.
