I think we're slowly bleeding out. Despite claims to the contrary we desperately in need of socialism in this country. The middle class is pretty non-existent today. But, we have HD TV's so we don't really notice it. We need to do something drastic, like tax the rich 90% of their income. We used to do it and the country was a lot stronger then. It's better than a bloody revolution someday isn't it? Once a week a church I live near takes in the homeless. The line gets longer every week, it makes me want to cry. Nobody really seems to care though, look how hard it was just to get unemployment benefits extended? All we have to do is tax the fuck out of the top 10%. They've made their money by sending our jobs to China anyway, why are we so concerned with what they want? It's ass-backwards and we need to change it. Until we stop believing the hype that our system is working for us we're going to stay on life support. At least we'll be able to watch jersey shore though.
