Who runs American businesses? Republicans, mostly. They whine and piss and moan about (nearly) everything to do with business. Taxes are too high. Salaries and benefits are onerous. Regulations are killing them. Yet, somehow, they have weathered the Republican-generated financial meltdown -- and now have tons of cash-on-hand.

American workers? Not so much. They want to work, but their jobs are either being done by Pakistanis and Chinese, or by automation and computers.

The end is near, good fellows and ladies. We are at a crossroads and no one seems willing to point us down the road to salvation. The Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz is flipping his arms -- and we have nowhere to go. The yellow brick road is now paved with sadness and despair.

Of course, while this is all happening, the GOP Presidential candidates are debating how many angels fit on the head of a pin. Our "local hero," Rick Santorum is obsessed with abortion -- while much of the nation is worried about where their next meal is coming from...and how to pay the mortgage and their health insurance premiums.

Has there EVER been a larger disconnect between politicians and "the people?" Yea. The Guilded Age, is a good example....
