Bend over and grab your ankles

As you may have noticed, I’ve been harping on the decline of the Middle Class.  I watched the incredible documentary entitled “Inside Job” (it won an Oscar BTW) and if you haven’t seen it, you really should. Then tell everyone you know to watch it.  It’s about the economic crisis and what caused it.

Basically, the banking and finance industry gambled, lost and then got bailed out by the American taxpayer without any consequences on the perpetrators at all.  And when I say “without any consequences”, I mean it literally.  Not a single person or company has been sued, arrested or prosecuted in any way, shape or form EXCEPT for this documentary.

I could write a book-long diatribe on the matter but have personal issues to attend to.  In the meantime, read blogs about it from some very thoughtful, intelligent people online like:
