Corporations are curious beasts, they devour and adapt, in the 1970’s when the Equal Rights Amendment was moving though the country, they took the opportunity to create the “two income family”. Now they use the fear of immigrants to beat back efforts to provide public services. I guess that’s why wealth inequality is worst than its ever been and the plight of the average American hasn’t been this bad since the great depression. With an economy going at near 3% a year, 10 years after the collapse, almost all the gains are going to the very rich while the GOP, holding all seats of power, plan to reduce retirement benefits to pay for even more tax cuts. If the American people don’t wake up and start voting our nuclear arsenal will fall into the hands of religious fundamentalists. Was that an odd segway? Well desperate people do desperate things, the corporations should think about that. If we don’t stop the GOP from making the situation worse with even more tax cuts and program cuts then people will lash out and we will be thinking as fondly of Trump as some short memory people are of W right now.
