I have to agree with this article. Our oligarchs grew up in a socialist America. They paid little to nothing for an excellent education, for excellent medical care, for excellent quality and inexpensive food, no hormone, genetically induced meats, clean water, clean air, cheap and abundant and efficient mass transportation, low to reasonable housing costs, etc., and I don't hear them complaining about that! The only thing that these same benefactors from socialism want is profits and only profits, at whatever cost to the children, to the poor and middle class, what's left of it! The rich want all of us to pay taxes, but receive nothing in return. They want to receive everything, but pay no taxes. They want to steal the social security fund which belongs to the people and is funded by the people. They have looted most pension funds that the people have directly, through their payroll, payed into. When I was young, we had parks and playgrounds everywhere, now we have nothing, but shopping malls and parking lots everywhere. We could swim in ponds, drink water from streams- now everyone must drink bottled water, of course, at a profit for the rich. We took care of our Soldiers, now, that is unprofitable. We respected our Police Officers, now, we target them, until we need them. Hypocrites! Homeless children was never a problem- now it is epidemic, and no one seems to care. We fed our hungry, now they are left to beg for crumbs. Putin is right, we aren't civilized, we are pigs. We only care about how we are going to pay for our next 'fix'. We prostitute ourselves and our children for a 'fix'. Child homicide and now infanticide has become the norm. We aren't civilized- the millenniums can't figure out their gender and we consider this as normal? Maybe, if they get off their 'high' and look down, they could reasonably guess. This country is spiraling downward and one has to be kinda stupid not to notice. Patting yourself on the back does not make you a champion; Effort does! Wake-up people!
