  •  DC has been disconnected to the reality (5+ / 0-)

    of the rest of the country for well over a decade now and even before that we had shameless politicians taking credit for things that didn't happen on their watch or fobbing off things that did happen on it's watch.

    How is DC disconnected if one is on the right side of the river?
    1. Housing pricing never fell during the 2007-now crisis- no...in fact it's now at record levels.
    2. Access to Health Care privileges that can't be bought at any price except for the managing directors of the various TBTFs that have been shamelessly stuffed with printed money since 2008 from DC and exempted from Sarbanes Oxley thanks to public corruption on a scale never seen since the 1800s.
    3. Working less than 150 days a year. Paid for a full year at 3x the current average of the bottom 90% of the country not counting those priceless benefits.
    4. Surrounded with wealth and opulence where nobody is subjected to the realities of the world that their policies have created.  
    5. Power to make the illegal , legal and power to make the legal,  illegal . Sized and implemented to suit the ever changing needs of those who "work" and "live" there.
    6. Insider Trading Privileges.
    7. Institutionalized Public Corruption.
    8. The revolving door with great wealth waiting for those who play by corporate rules.
    9. Defined  Pension Plans
    10. Cost of Living Pay Increases.

    In short all the things the rest of the country either doesn't have or suffers as a result of the village people's unfettered access to them and the feeling that only they have the power to see clearly what is good for us not matter how much the rest of the country vehemently disagrees.,.

    So of course you wouldn't feel there was any threat to your way of life as you seem to be on the inside looking out of the : Don't see it, Don't Feel it, Don't hear it SpaceShip DC.

    Thank you for logging on and sharing your views with the great unwashed masses.
