Another thing we know that is millions of Americans are losing their nest eggs. They gave up job security, unions, health care, pensions, on and on. They were promised a piece of the action in the stock market. Once again, they’re screwed. Will enough of them wake up? Or will they just look for the next hooker scandal to distract themselves while decrying the high price of gas, driving to Wal Mart in order to stock up on more junk produced in China, paid by credit cards, as the suburban house faces foreclosure and the call-center job they had to take after losing a real job is outsourced to India? Oh, the president “is on top of it.” And those tax refunds will fix everything.
