1. Each of us has his or her own theory on why the 99% have been screwed so badly.

I cannot say that mine is exactly like yours. On the other hand, it's probably a great deal closer to yours than it is to the "you're mad only because Obama did not get you a pony" people.

Not that it is as important as your other issues, but I disagree with you most as to what the word "progressive" refers to. The DLC resurrected a word used by Teddy Roosevelt and his supporters to denote the left wing of the Republican Party that had broken off to support former Republican Roosevelt for President against Republican Presidential nominee Taft. It is a perfect description for a President like Clinton. And, I think Obama has governed to the right of Clinton.
