  •  Gee,this diary headline could apply to many issues (6+ / 0-)

    beside economic problems and wealth disparity in America: Global warming, racism, gun control, fracking, social safety nets, militarism, women's rights, land stewardship, drinking water quality, infrastructure repair -- in short, this country is punting on everything  that needs to be done now, if not yesterday.
    I can't help but believe that, like a bridge whose superstructure has so weakened from neglect that a failure in one key part causes the whole thing to collapse, America is poised in the exact same condition.
