What facts? All you have done is spew the typical right wing nonsense.
The captains of the corporate world got what they wanted, low taxes and deregulation, and right off the bat they destroyed the world economy once again.
If you can't see that, go see a doctor.
The answer is to do the same thing as the last time the captain morons destroyed the world economy.
The WWII gen knew what to do.
Raise taxes on the super rich up the wazoo, and start enforcing strict regulations.

These threads always make me laugh. Here we are being swindled and people still make excuses for these anti-social thieves. People constantly scream "Class Warfare" when you dare mention how the super rich swindle society. I mean, How dare poor people look out for their interests? You greedy pigs! Only rich people get to do that.
We are just screwed.

I have never understood this class war business. If there is a war, it has been waged by ruling class against all the other class's. To suggest the war is being fought by the working class against the rich suggests a lack of class consciousness.
These increasing inequalities between the rich and the poor are bad for society as a whole and I don't see anybody with any ideas on how to tackle this widening gap. All I hear, is that I must be jealous of others wealth and to suck it up.
