Hey, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), if you’re against “entitlements,” maybe you could wean the likes of Boeing and Raytheon and Textron and Lockheed Martin off the public teat.

Short, to the point, and accurate - You sound as frustratingly pissed as I am, and as are many others.  As I’ve mentioned on other threads, I used to be an optimist - no longer - I’ve come to the conclusion that only a late 1700’s style violent American Revolution will be able to save the Democracy from the ongoing, (which is now accelerating,) sliding into a horrific authoritarian corporate oligarchical fascist state…  What I fear more is that the revolution will not happen, and the fast-sliding into the inevitable insane dystopian hell for us 99%'ers will quickly, and purposefully, succeed.
