About this blog:
What if they held a class war and nobody noticed? For decades, liberals and progressives have been bashed for conducting a "class war" every time they suggest that it would be appropriate for the extremely wealthy to shoulder a bit more of the burden of paying for government. Meanwhile, a swarm of far-right think-tanks and political action committees have been working tirelessly to promote the idea that taxes on the wealthy should be lowered further from their historic lows, and that entitlement programs such as social security and medicare are too expensive to sustain (and in any case, immoral). The latest attempts to delegitimize public employee unions are the logical next step in what genuinely appears to be the systematic dismantlement of the middle class. This blog will highlight some of the more extreme examples of this activity that may not always show up in your news feeds.

It Isn't Enough
Here is a great Huffington Post article by Richard Eskow outlining the mindset of the ultra-rich, who (amazingly) are angry that they are not getting more from society, along with heartfelt thank-yous from a grateful populace of peasants. I have said it before, and I'll no doubt say it again: some of these people need to take a trip to the town square in a tumbrel and become intimate with guillotine. Only then will they start to rein in their excesses.
