I must confess I truly think America is going under. I find it hard to be a part of this species. This group in existence where the upper one percent are controlling everything. There wallets are getting full while everyone else is getting dull. To make a decent living or ends meet anymore seems to be more of a dream on top of the American dream. That's how hard it is. You make all the right moves in life. You get that college degree. But when it comes to the job market the employers retreat. You might as well have stuck with the high school diploma instead of looming student loans. I think the way were going there will be no more social security, pensions, and health care, but then again security is a state of mind, because we all thought good times were permanent and nothing could change but it did...

    Don't agree at all. Things tend to go in cycles. The cycle you described is nearing an end. Give it a couple of more years, then this cycle will start its end. While the ultra-wealthy wanted movements towards austerity, very similar to European actions, there was no way that was going to happen. As it turns out, the EU was wrong and they have negative GDP and will have for quite some time. The US has positive GDP, lower than what it needs to be, but still positive. The EU countries went the austerity route and their debt is still growing our of control. The US debt is still climbing, but at a much lower and slower pace as the growth sets in. It took four years to finally bring down the Vietnam War. This time it will take even less time. People will finally vote their for their pockets, not some false promise of jobs to come if the wealthy pay less in taxes.
