We've had 30 years of trickle down economics and a belief system that the super rich are the "job creators" and everything to do with the government is bad. Now we have our elections being bought out from under us by a few billionaires and a supreme court that believe money is speech and corporations are living, breathing people. Divide and conquer, it's exactly what they've done and they're laughing all the way to their tax sheltered banks (swiss or cayman) Feels pretty hopeless for those of us struggling to make ends meet.

With regard to the question of neo-feudalism....there's something about the notion of a feudalistic society with 4-G networking that just doesn't fit the bill. But the ideas being fed to us: go get-'em attitude about war for Iranian oil, meainlingless drivel on television, like teen pregancy, prisoners getting 15 minutes of fame, and man stuff's his face, corporate advertising overkill and with drones and all sorts of other spying technologies...we may be closer to a very bizarre 1984 or something.

A Warren Run Would Change Everything

Over the past few weeks, Elizabeth Warren has emerged as a leader of progressives on Capitol Hill. She led the charge against the part of the CRomnibus that gutted our financial regulations, and she is still fighting the White House over its nomination of bankster Antonio Weiss as Undersecretary of Domestic Finance in the Treasury Department.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
