This is the story of our times, and after the Supreme Court decision allowing corporations to buy elections constitutionally, there's really not to much more any of the rest of us can do except bend over and spread 'em. Here is Elizabeth Warren--met her before here--talking to Bill Maher about how effective the so-called credit card reforms are going to be. In a word, friends, they're basically window dressing. It will be business as usual.
What in the world is wrong with the American people that they put up with this? We have no backbone. None, if this is what we allow the financial industry and our own representatives to do this to us. At some point the middle class is just going to collapse.
