The democrats are openly abandoning the non-elite in order to "reduce the deficit", i.e., preserve that value of wealth. This should produce the left-wing equivalent of the Tea Parties and a federal legislature that is effectively split four ways so nothing can be accomplished. If that doesn't take us a step farther toward the "decline & Fall" or at least a double dip recession I'll be surprised.
I'm rewriting http://uniso.karleklund.net/ to suit. Mostly the introduction.
