The business world is over run by sociopaths and CEO Martin Shkreli is the poster boy for this month. You remember Martin , the young smug face little rich kid , who made his millions by sowing destuction helped along by a perverted sick American business environment , aided and abetted by American government. Martin was the little punk that took a 62 year old life saving discovery and jacked the price from $13.50 a pill to $750 a tablet overnight, a 5500% increase.
Boehner gone means Corporate Democrats (Obama) likely to offer more radical concessions in response to more shut-down standoffs.

This from Social Security works:
For 80 years, Social Security has paid out every benefit owed to every eligible American in full and on time.

Securitization allows Washington to take money from the elderly needed for bare subsistence living and give it to rich wall street investors and Obama can stop this if he wanted to.
And this is money the ELDERLY PAID into the Federal Government so that Washington could give it back at a later date to help them cover the costs associated with just barely surviving in America, that is money for food, medicine, and minimal amount of “shelter.”
As a fledging fascist state Washington, for now, must use a complex subterfuge to achieve bald faced fascism, or “reverse robin hood schemes” but that will soon change as the Oligarchs and the 1% staffers continue to demand more and more and more.
From my perspective, firstly the problem is with the, if not billions, then hundreds-of- millions of machines worldwide engineered to take in cool sweet air and in turn exhaust hot acidic gases.
So if for example a densely populated urban area like Manhattan or Hong Kong had an all-electric transportatioin infrastructure, I can imagine the citizens there might like energetically oppose any proposals that threatened going back to cars, trucks train & buses that burned fossil fuels.
