16. It angers me when lessens learned are allowed to fall by the wayside...

Also grew up in the 50s:

My mother would mention the depression every now and then
I would ask if it could happen again and she said, no, the government made laws that will stop that from ever haoppening again.
Look at us today!

the government made laws that stopped monopolies.
Over the past 35 years I worked for a large corporation.
In the 80s they said that the larger corps. would buy out the smaller ones and we would end up with 3-4 major companies in our area
I wondered what happened to the anti-trust act?
Now look at us.

We have been sold out by our elected leaders and now it is going to take the next ten years to get things back on track again.

We are working now to stop the wealthy from gaining enough control to tip the country past the point of no return.

We have allowed the wealthy to take more than their share over the past 35 years.
It is not asking too much for them to get the economy back on track.

We need to acknowledge that the Republicants are still feeding money to the wealthy every chance they get.
and, they are stopping the banks from being devided and/or prosecuted.
We need to stop the lobbyists and the flow of pay-offs back to the members of congress who are playing the game.
special interest groups are not the American people.
WE ARE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

The economy will grow because of the middle class!
