1. Wow, one of the best hours I've ever spent on DU.

http://hedricksmith.com/ "... for all of us who want to understand America today, or why average Americans are struggling to keep afloat. Smith reveals how pivotal laws and policies were altered while the public wasn’t looking, how Congress often ignores public opinion, why moderate politicians got shoved to the sidelines, and how Wall Street often wins politically by hiring over 1,400 former government officials as lobbyists."

3. We broke “the virtuous circle”. Now we need to get it fixed.

Congress knows what the people want. Boycotts, strikes and protests are the only way.
