America Officially Declared An Oligarchy

Even something like the Affordable Care Act is largely a give away to the existing insurance companies let alone government brought to you by Halliburton or the entire Republican caucus in the House and Senate basically thinking about what the Koch Brothers want before anything else.

I personally don't care about the r squared. I base my best estimation on what my gut tells me. That has a r square of .50. (Maybe better)
I guess I take this financial/inequality stuff very hard. My family has lost a lot in this mess. The whole country seemed to fall apart. I suffered a stroke. I feel like I might be caught in some weird dream. Nothing feels real a lot of the time. I don't feel like I live in America anymore. It's like some crazy carbon copy facade.
To think that all this suffering was caused by people who just wanted a few dollars more makes this world a pretty scary place.
I do admire the new Pope and how he has addressed a lot of the major issues. I never considered myself a very religious person but I always felt like I was a good person. I wonder how these super rich people view themselves. I doubt they believe anything different than myself.
Either way it feels like a bad spot.

Here's a good review of the book. If income inequality is something that interests you head over to your local library and give it a read or just buy it if you're rich.
