    a popular president with a majority in congress cannot get a bill passed.
    he cannot get his choices appointed. the majority no longer rules in america.

    with the recent supreme court ruling america has officially become a plutocracy.
    the president is impotent. the minority rules.

    capitalists have usurped the government and america will be run strictly for short term profit.

    meanwhile our standard of living and our standing in the world community sinks lower.
    we have become the whore.

    With the major financial pundits appointed to the White House within the first week after the inaugaration all coming from either Goldman Sachs, or the Federal Reserve, who can any intelligent person blame for that?

    It say that they are scared to death to protest out of fear of losing their jobs in a hard economy and an unreversed police state

    there is a bitter lesson being taught today. for those who have eyes to see.
    democracy has been short circuited.

    i am afraid of how this may end up.
