Do you ever feel like you're screaming and no one is listening?
This is what I thought all along. Paul Krugman of the NY Times echos my sentiments.
All reasonable people, who can add 2+2 and read a newspaper every now and then can clearly see that major banks, financial institutions, and business "leaders" don't have a flipping clue. They think this recession is just a "natural cycle of the economy". Along with years of stupid short-sighted greedy deregulation, those who run our financial institutions have been fiddling while Rome burned.
So I'm standing here, a piddling nothing in the grand scheme, screaming FOUL and no one hears. I'm pounding on the gates of the castle demanding my taxes back, while the Kings and Princes are anointing themselves with expensive oils and staging drunken orgies on my dime. My children grow hungry while theirs grow fat and lazy.
And who will DO anything about this? The Democrats? The Republicans? They are all chained to the Jabba the Hut of banks and corporate interest. Religious Leaders? They are too busy growing rich and playing politics.
Will the human condition of the haves and have-nots ever change?
What are we to do?
