Evan, come on man. You seem to take the stance that might makes right. You can innovate, create a system by which billions are created in transaction fees while the risk is systematically being passed back down to the consumer, but nothing was created...it was legal, but they were basically attaching a vacuum to the system and funneling money out of the country. Was it legal? Yes, because they had the laws changed due to the money and power they control, but not originally. NOW, that being said...from my perspective, that isn't right, isn't good, and they are the bad guys in this case. From your perspective, at least from what I've read, they could, so they should...and they are fine in doing it.
If you're being "general," and are just considering the existing condition or state of affairs of the USA, I'd say we're on a fast trip to the bottom of the hill and what's at the bottom, can only be imagined! But it won't be a pleasant or enjoyable place.
"As the world turns" it is shrinking, bringing differing cultures closer together.
America became the most powerful influential nation on earth because it is a wonderful potpourri of peoples from all nations,cultures and societies.
This COULD BE the, eventual, effect a "shrinking" world may have on international humanity.
It COULD BE POSITIVE and result in a kind of progress man has yet to experience.
On the other hand, IT MAY fragment mankind to a greater extent than it already is and the result could be disastrous.
I understand saome about American society, it is just the wishy washy vagueness of the supposedly direct question that you think you know the answer to ! It is as clear as asking where is equilibrium in American society - what part and in what regard are you posing the question !
agree, to a Capitalist, if it's not broke don't fix it!
Corporate Bonus's in tact, Wall Street Games free of investigation, Power Brokers making milions, and illegal Oil speculation in vouge with nothing to protect US cirizens. If the bitch to much, print so more monies, and keep emphasis in the news on Palin and Trump, so they forget about the rest of us.
what you write here is the reason I stopped my Hub writing, my emphasis is changing now. the more I study and learn the more I feel a need for informed wrriting, not just obvious slam and run articles. I am not an Obama fan, but He has some bright spots also. Single party slant is easy, but not accurate.
to much mis-information. We need a beter U.S. mental state-health.
I am all about citizens rights and the lessening of government interference/invasion of people's life. The fact that government and corporations are in bed and the so-called "honest" politicians are not doing anything within their position, is where the outrage should really be.
All politicians in some manner are corrupted, because the ones that are in bed with corporations are doing the most damage, and the ones who are not, are not doing anything about the ones that are.
So, it leaves one to wonder-----where is citizen protection?
It could be worse, yes. But, if nothing is done, it's going to get really bad. I wrote a hub on the state of affairs in America-
America Is A Nation In Trouble. It shows people that if the state of America continues, then things are going to get not only worse, but so bad that many people are going to literally have a problem, just trying to live. More so than already.
After all that noble talk about freedom and liberty and the Constitution, it's helpful to be reminded that for quite a few tea partiers, what "liberty" really means is "do what we want and nobody gets...
