Dear Ath, More hot air is rising.

Will all this lead to a wake up call to the major of us in this country who simply aren't passionate about anything but a bit O?

Belloc predicted the appeasement of the majority to servility for a modicum of comfort and security. His biographer, Speaght, says he was off put when he found that "government" and "the rich" weren't synonymous - government still sapped the rich along with everyone else.

But he was right about the appeasement of the majority to servility. I have never seen such cynicism, bald hubris, and unbridled greed as during the present economic "crisis" - among the wealth grabbers, either in and among the AIG types or in Congress and the White House.
