We need an austerity plan here. It's time a generation of Americans post WWII sacrifice themselves


for the future. Across the board tax increases and across the board budget cuts. No generation will ever think anything but me, me, me. And no politicians will ever do what's right and say we should sacrifice ourselves for the future.

So what we need will never happen.

4. The rich are only rich b/c they steal from other people

The rich steal other people's labor, creativity, and talent.

edit to add: We have accepted this for a long time. But, as I have no more food to put upon my table, there is no more "social net" to save me.....I realize how stupid I have been to go along with this charade.

I have nothing more to lose. I am the 99%

3. We already sacrificed our grandchildren to banksters as debt slaves. What more do you want?
