Read And Watch

Read This:

The Nation, "No To Oligarchy".

Watch This:

Ex-Senator Alan Simpson, Co-Chairman of the President's Catfood Gutting What's Left Of The New Deal Commission, talks candidly about what he and other Commission members actually feel about Social Security.

The video above has poor sound -- but the transcript is here.

Hey; does anyone in the room not believe that within ten years, the United States, on one hand, will be a mass of people in varying states of poverty; and on the other, a tiny layer of Oligarchs who own or control both society and government and literally don't give a fuck about anyone but themselves?

Anyone?
