Egypt

I was watching the protests in Egypt the other night and it struck me how passionate they were about getting a new government. It seems to me that in the US the TPTB (elected officials and large corporations, Wall Street) have us just where they want us...the vast majority of us have just enough food and shelter to stop us from getting too excited and they also have us in the position that almost all of us are 1-3 paychecks away from disaster. I don't think that at this point this country is capable of meaningful opposition to injustice or oppression. Just my humble opinion.
