15. "For the typical American family, the 2000s have been a disaster" - Thank You SCOTUS
The day after the election in 2000, I was so ill that I could not even go to work. I knew that Bush and his brother were going to steal that election, no matter what.

I knew that after a decade in which we saw the middle class make some income gains was going to be wiped out by Republican economic principles which only favor the very wealthy.

I tried telling people this for years. I tried telling people in 2002 that Greenspan was cheating for Bush. You can google Yavin4 and Greenspan and read my posts for yourself.

I told people that we were going to crash in 2006. I told people to pay off their debts. I was a year or so early, but better early than late.

I saw that trainwreck coming, and I did the best to protect myself, but I'm still caught up in this disastrious economy.

Yet, after a decade of complete failure, there still exists a sizeable portion of the American population that's so racist, so ignorant, so fucking greedy that the Republicans are only one or two election cycles away from re-taking power.

Next week, I turn 45, and I'm going to spend the next five years of my life trying to figure out how to live in Europe. I refuse to grow old in this country.
