    •  But in some other places, the people fight back (3+ / 0-)

      I don't know what disease has grasped the American public, but the aversion to doing anything in response to all these depradations makes me think the country simply isn't the place to be if you want to be able to defeat the oligarchs.

      You may be able to outrun your friend for the moment, but the grizzly named "Avarice" *always* has plenty of appetite for you both...

      •  lack of leadership (0+ / 0-)

        horrible odds, a demoralized populace that worked very hard to win a victory that didn't turn out to be a victory at all but a stab in the gut.

        and also a lot less money than we used to have, but that's secondary.

        we'll see if Rebuild the Dream can do anything.
