merica is in a mortal crisis.   The country is flat broke; everybody knows it, yet nobody wants to face facts and do something about it.

 

If we want to salvage what little is left of what we nostalgically call "The American Dream," we're going to have to find a lot of money.   Nothing else will help.

 

Street protests are fun; there's nothing youth enjoys more than a block party, with risk.   But in the end, they don't end up to much.

 

We can protest Wall Street until they move the markets to the cloud, and they're halfway there already.   They've gone from promising us pie in the sky to making pies in the sky and hogging all the slices.

 

If we're going to change America, we need to think out of the petty cash box.

 

We can't cut our way out of this crisis.   Cut everything from the budget but the military and entitlements and we're still facing a hole the size of Chris Christie's boiler.

 

We won't get there with taxes.   The poor and middle class--and the line between them is getting pretty blurry--don't have the money.   They're barely hanging on already.

 

The only source of new revenues is the rich, who haven't been paying their fair share since the Johnson Administration.   But there is no way they'll let us raise their taxes.
