  1. Why do you call them "Leaders"? Did you go to public school? Do you really consider them your leaders?

  2. LOL @ "the New Reality" - as if we had some glitch in the space-time continuum, the global economic DeLorean hit 88 MPH, and now we are on an alternate timeline where consequences of previous actions are finally crashing down. "It turns out we actually *can't* keep up a pyramid scheme forever like we thought we could, but only because we are in a New Reality where actions have consequences. It's no one's fault, it's just the New Reality."

  3. The "New Reality" is that the Banksters now own every idiot who actually pays taxes.
