14. Fixing it is different from pandering to a bunch of stupid actions that won't


fix jack shit. Unless one's standards are incredibly low.

Because that doesn't do a fucking thing to fix the damage of the last 40 years, and as soon as all that is done, regardless of how good it is, not a fucking thing is going to change, regardless of how many self-important weak-brained smart-mouth jackasses think so.

We will still need an investment of over $50 trillion in pure factory upgrades, an upgrade to the now clearly insufficient education that tens of millions of adults have, and NONE of that does anything to bring back the lives or health of the 7 million FAMILIES who were foreclosed on, or the 9 million loans that are underwater, and it doesn't do a fucking thing to bring back the over 20 million decent jobs we are now short.

So do you have solutions or just useless snark?

Never mind - I'll just put you on ignore, doesn't look like you have much else to offer.
