    putting this into the 'esoteric' language.  

    The general population has not yet grasped the fact that our problems are deep, systemic and to a large extent ideologically driven. Until such time as that principle is grasped, every particular instance adds to a growing body of evidence that more fundamental change through government action is needed.  

    Your principals are correct, but we must approach this disaster like it is the 'true Katrina' moment for our entire nation.

    There is no time left to wax philosophical in terms of what 'some Americans need to grasp' because not everyone is at that level...nor do they care to 'go there'..

    What most people need to understand is this simple axiom:

    We were robbed, plain and simple.  We were held hostage as Bush left office, with Paulson, and Geithner and Summers and Bernanke/Greenspan that President Obama, for whatever reason has continued to perpetuate.  

    Until the 'denial and cover up' is allowed to continue, nothing will ever change.  It really is that simple.  

    The 'truth' is out there for everyone to see, and read about............what is happening now with this new 'fake Pecora Commission' is just more of the same: cover it up.

    I remember my dad used to say: Time to take your medicine like a man/woman.  Time to come clean.  Time to own up to your 'mistakes' and responsibilities....time to make a clean break and start over...with a clean slate.

    That is what is being denied by our government....and the longer we 'put it off' the more harmful it will become for all of us.  I don't relish the outcome, but I do know this:

    Denial will be our downfall...no matter what anyone else says.

    ...oh, not to worry, I'm wearing a Flame Retardant Valentino Orange Moo Moo whenever I visit DailyKos.

      appalling. How bad do material conditions have to get before the progressive answer to the teabaggers start showing up in our streets and on our teevee screens?

      There is still a widespread belief that Obama is doing or shall do the right thing coupled with a morbid fear of a Republican electoral resurgence.

      A subservient attitude toward capital has become so deeply ingrained in the collective US world view that reasonable solutions, either imaginable or for which existing models in other countries exist, are never even discussed.

      I guess things must get worse to see real movement, hopefully before they become irretrievably bad.
