How Did They Do This To Us?

I miss Bill Moyers and his Journal on PBS.   Although his excellent journalism can no longer be seen on TV, he is not gone.   Here is a 'must read' article I found on Truthout and it really explains how the rich got us in this bind.   I think you will find it most interesting.

Because I could never be as articulate as Bill Moyers I will not even include a quote from this article.  I think it should be read in it's entirety to understand how this great division of wealth came about.  The OWS protesters know in their gut that the system is out of whack.  How did this happen?   Moyers explains it very well.

Fantastic analysis and it rings a bell for me as there are many similarities with the way Indian democracy is growing and the middle class here is being fooled into complacency.

I share your remorse with regard to his program on PBS and appreciate pointing me to this address he gave.

That speech makes us sinners want to run screaming headlong into a baptismal pool of Democracy!!

*Rummuser - I'm afraid people and politicians are the same the world over.

*Alan G - Thank you for your visit. I deeply appreciate it. There will never be another Bill Moyers, will there?

*Cop Car - You are most welcome.

Have you read about the 1,000 seniors marching with Occupy Chicago to shout out about "Seniors Block Street to Protest Essential Social Program Funding Cuts." Wish it were happening where you and I live!
