This is what happens when a country stops investing in its people for 35+ years, and we know it's only going to get worse - those of us who have become economic hostages or slaves or whatever you want to call the 99%. That's why we must take to the streets and reclaim what has been lost. We MUST begin investing in Americans again, stop the wars, and restore democracy. The financializiation of the economy has been destructive on so many levels. Even if democracy here always been a "sham," as many have argued, at least we should be striving towards that model. At this point, we're not. We're going in the opposite direction, and we're in a mess.
