68. because the subtext is that Obama and the Ds offer nothing but the garbage from the plates
of the upper 1%? a pile of stinking scraps and bones for the hoi-polloi (us) while our Corporate Overlords feast on our life's blood?

I offer you the trajectory of health care "reform" as a perfect example of how Hedges' "spiritual and moral suicide" plays out in the real world.

we are to be grateful for the scraps and bones, according to the apologists for the entrenchment of the power elites

i once read a post-apocalyptic novel in which some traveler and companions moved through a blasted landscape trying to avoid gangs of nihilistic youth who burned people alive for fun...in my worst moments i fear such for my little grand-daughter...

that's the path we are on

for truth, Camus harsh croaking carries far more power than Obama's soporific mellifluousness

and for those who's response to an article like this is frothing rage, i'd examine that response closely - after all, there's a reason that the saying goes ... "anger masks fear"
