We now have more takers then makers in our economy. This is the death spiral we all warned against. Prepare for impact. The real victims will not be those able to take care of themselves, it will be those who have become accustomed to largess on the part of others. A nation of Blanche DuBois: Whoever you are, I have always depended on the kindness of strangers". The system will collapse and the kindness of strangers will be hard to find. You can only pick the American System's pocket so long before it is empty. I feel actually sorry for those who will starve on the street believing someone will come to bail them out. It's not going to happen.. It will be brutal. It would have been far better to have allowed the beast to live a little longer before killing it dead.
