Take a look at that down-trodden family at the left. Maybe, they're lining up for shelter after a natural disaster, or waiting for the food bank doors to open or at a donation center to gather up winter coats for the kids. Damn, they look so sad.

This is certainly disgusting. Thanks Carrie.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. I'm disgusted, too. Guess I was lucky to be raised by parents who lived through the Great Depression....lived quite frugally and by a strict budget. Mom loved to say, "Waste Not, Want Not." There are just too many people who only see glitter and facade, and believe they should just have, "more." Taking some comfort that "the mighty will fall" and "the biggest will fall hardest."

Lois' line abut "...too many people" who "believe they should just have 'more', speaks directly to one of my pet peeves about the "conspicuous consumption " (J.K. Galbraith's great phrase) crowd.
Here we are, in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, also one of the most wasteful, and SOME people just, must have that Hummer, or other out sized thing.
Pardon me, if I am happy in my Corolla.
Pardon me, if I link some of this felt need to Pres, Reagan telling the country "You can have it all!" Not that that was not something so many wanted to hear, but he gave it such legitimacy.

Sorry, P.S.: One must also take into account who owns the Wall Street Journal, Rupert.

This I find disgusting and actually very offensive! It is not something to be taken lightly, since so many people are struggling to keep a job, when they have no home, live in their car or shelters and have children they are trying to look after. The bubble burst and the American Dream will be extremely hard to attain at this time. The rich should be doing something for the country that they will be remembered by - in helping parts of the population that is suffering the most. I know a statement like this upsets them to no end as they had to struggle a lot to get to where they are, but they can't take it with them them when their time comes. Thanks Carrie.

Here is a stanza from the 1970s song, "The Shape of Things to Come"
"There are young dreams
Crowding out old realities
Revolutions
Sweeping in like a fresh new breeze"

A lot of good changes occurred in the 1960s and 1970s. Since then not so many. We shouldn't forget "the young dreams" even if we're old. It's time to get rid of the career politicians and the bought and paid for legislators. Then, and only then, will this country be governed fairly. Only then will the old realities be crowded out.

I support four food banks and it's still not enough. The need just keeps continuing to grow. BTW without all of us little people who's going to pay the taxes? Any market that has no consumers won't have any product let alone profit. The folks at the Wall Street Journal need a sledgehammer upside the head. Get real you schmucks.
