    I do agree with you, but remain naively optimistic.

    Health-care is a huge problem. My self-employed neighbor tried to save money by switching insurance companies. When it came time to have his knee replacement, coverage was denied because of the condition being pre-existing. He paid the $30,000 out of pocket. Then we have my 80 year old mother with private insurance and medicare. She loves going to the doctor. For free.

    At the time we exported bombs to blow up Europe. Why did the war get us out of the Depression?

    They tore up the street in front of work again. Didn't coordinate with the water company last year, so new pipe had to be laid under brand new asphalt.

    And we've been there before and came out on top, while helping Europe rebuild (Marshall Plan).

    I agree with you. Walmart has allowed the lower classes afford more stuff, and yes necessary stuff.

    As long as we get ideas and not rhetoric.

    This is bad. I'm sitting in a beach house on the fourth reading SA comments. I need to check myself into rehab.

    And replaced with Tea Party candidates? Trade chickens for medical services?

    You know they were taught the answer, their electronically induced ADD won't let them remember.

    Same words spoken in the 30's. Who ended on top?

    I agree with you except for the education part. The main problem with today's education is parenting. Get your kids off of TV and video games. Encourage them to PLAY. I went to school during the 60's and 70's in upstate NY. I feel my kid's education is much better than the one I received. For the most part, we do have a very competent infrastructure for education (a bit top heavy in admin), we have just enough bad parents to undo everyone else's work.

    Hmmm... I think the bail-out motivation was history - bank failure during the first 4 years of the depression. I really believe there was real fear of the whole system would tumble down like a house of cards. There are a whole lot of politicians who voted for the bailout who now wish they hadn't (because their constituents are pissed).
    What bothers me the most is that everything that has been done seems like a knee-jerk reaction. Obama could have gleaned ideas from SA and come up with a set of better plans.

    Oh, I agree. We have met the enemy and they are us.
