You really have to hand it to the GOP. Sincere kudos.

They have convinced America (or at least all the rich people who run America) that just because these very same The Man who creates the mess can in no way be accountable for it.

This is non-partisan.

I say the cycle is unstoppable, and the only way to issue corrections to it is when, after screwing us royally economically for X years until things blow up, the rich get the snot taxed out of them when it happens. For Christ’s sake, none of them are hurting, NY Times series on the poor folks moving down to 5000 sq. ft. notwithstanding.

The Man is largely wealthy. The Man created the problem we all have now. The Man should be happily coughing up, nervously laughing a meek apology, and saying, “OK, you can have some of it back.” Preferably in front of an angry mob.

That’s because in a just world they’d be in jail.
