My fellow Americans

We’ve been had. Plain and simple… or not so simple. The scheme has been complex and on a scale so large it’s difficult to fathom, but fathom it we must or face the consequences of a fallen republic.

You are hereby assigned to read this article: The Big Takeover – The global economic crisis isn’t about money – it’s about power. How Wall Street insiders are using the bailout to stage a revolution by Matt Taibbi. It may take some effort to get through if you’ve not neen following the economic meltdown, but time is short, and this article will catch you up on what’s happened to date.

After you’ve read the article, and you’re as concerned as I am about the future, and concerned about Matt’s heavy use of the past tense in the article (implying turning points already passed), come back here and let’s confer about what action we can take as citizens (not consumers) of the once greatest country ever known to humanity.

Can we right the ship?

  1. In order for that to happen, we need to get rid of our culture of entitlement. Some of these greedy CEOs and executives are the problem, but not all of it. A lot of people live beyond their means, so it doesn’t make what we go through any better.
