This isnt about capitalism...capitalism failed, its a flawed economy model that has about a 25-50 year lifecycle before complete catastrophic failure. this is now about survival of any form of economic model whatsoever before going back to trading chickens and cows.
Alternatively...we could nuke japan again...aim for their car manufacturers

It's kinda hard for me NOT to agree with this lady. She knows what's going on, who the players are, how their deals are secured. To all Americans: take note of her words and help spread the message.

I sit sadly and still wonder how many of you consider this a democrat/republican problem? This has been an ongoing event for quite some time. They (democrats/republicans) have been doing this for decades, and if not for the nature of our politically unaware and inactive citizens, it would have never been allowed. We did this to ourselves, and most of us still swallow their grand illusion of political polarization and separatism between parties. Everyone is so caught up on being right and wanting to be on the winning team, that many of us have forgotten who the actual players in the game are. It's not dem vs repub ie you v.s me,) its the wealthy elite against the rest of the world's population, and they don't care whether you're a Soviet or an American, just as long as you have money. All it is, is the rich getting more money and more wealth, while the poor suffer from the results. This has been coming for a long time, so, the majority of you cannot pretend to be surprised.
Most of you are extremely bright, how much longer can this stuff fool you?
In America, if the government turns into a goon squad, you have the constitutionally-protected ability to shoot back. In Iran you have no such ability as the Iranian government has never recognized the unalienable rights as set forth in our Declaration. So in Iran the population risks mass death to protest. In America the population risks loss of some income since you'd have to cut work. The Iranians take to the streets; we take to our couches and have another beer. Grow a pair of balls America. The people of Iran are putting us to shame.
