... hard work = rewards. The last time you saw that sort of thing was the mid-1800s but the myth lives on.

You're acting like the problem is with the government, and you're not getting that business is government. Lobbyists rule Washington, global financial conglomerates rule Washington.

... What they're proposing is worse than socialism because it rewards a few people with incredible wealth, asks us to pay for them to live as they choose, while the rest of us lower our standards of living.

Trickle down economics didn't trickle down. The bonuses and funds stayed at the top.
Supply side economics still doesn't help the worker.

I hope they're right about the sunspots and solar radiation of 2012 knocking out all electronic communication. That will change things, but really nothing else...


We can only hope for a complete and total systemic collapse to save us from hell.

truly I hope we have a total system collapse. I am so fed up with this system. a lot of it is from having it shoved down my throat that if you work hard you will reap the benefits of capitalism. I can't say I am not a capitalist i do own my own business although it is not doing well. I can't say i am a socialist (as given the definition in the dictionary) I do believe we live in a corporate society. where the lobbyist and corporations rule the world. this has been a hard pill for me to swallow given how I was raised.
I am willing to put up will all the heck that will break loose if we have a full melt down. I am even willing to lose my life over it, which will probably happen not just to me but to many of us. I do believe that this is what it is going to have to happen if we want to take control of this land we call our own. we need a full fledged revolt. Not just a few of us talking loudly about it. It is something that will have to happen, look at what our fore fathers did, they did it for our own good , they did it because they knew that it was out of control as it is now (only now it is way worse) we have to make a stand. Whether we are republican, democrat, independant or what have you. We need to make a stand. That is why in the right to work states it is illegal to have a union - the same principal, they do not want people standing together, making rules that benefit all.
