“Through the tax code, there has been class warfare waged, and my class has won.  It’s been a rout.  You have seen a period where American workers generally have gone no place, and where the really super rich as a group increased their incomes five for one in this rarefied atmosphere.” — Warren Buffet, quoted in “Returns ‘Terrific’ as U.S. Workers Suffer,” Bloomberg News, 11.15.11

    What’s so sad about it is the way half the country has bought the line of bullshit about how we can’t close the loopholes for the super-rich because they’re the ones providing jobs. We can’t impose term limits, nix the filibuster, stop handing out money to the oil companies, shrink the military, or do any of the thousand and one things that might actually improve the situation, because our government has been purchased and our citizenry is brain-dead on cable news and French fries.
