Last night on The Daily Show Stewart's guest was a man named Robert Reich. Daily Show interview here:
Daily Show Interview Robert Reich

Mr. Reich has recently penned a book called Supercapitalism, he is also a Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley and he has served in three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton. More biography and info at his website:

His interview while short seemed to back up everything I have felt since the $700 billion bailout was passed. Passing that bailout really hit it home for me and I am very angry.
His sentiment "Socialism for the rich and Capitalism for everyone else" really sums up my feelings on where our economic policy is right now.

I do believe that more and more Americans are getting more and more angry.
How long till we get our pitchforks and storm the Whitehouse? I know Stewart was joking but the anger and fear I hear from others seems to be getting louder.
I just have to wonder where this will lead? As for the elections, I honestly don't think either candidate can get America back to what it once was, I think that since this door has been opened we will continue down that path.
Anyway, I really agreed with what he had to say and I just had to post it so others could hear what I hear and maybe feel justified in their anger at the situation.

I guess I should have put "the Daily Show" or "John Stewart" in the title to actually get readers or responses huh?

This may be one of those, "yup" topics, with not much else to say... I watched that too, and he was right on...
