Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

The Life - and Death - of the American Dream

Here is a 10 minute You-Tube video that encapsulates the message of my blog.

UpdateI should point out that this is NOT my vid.   It is from Realitybase Journal.   Source link below. The fact that it encapsulates my message is simply due to the author, Roger Chittum, looking at a lot of the same data that I look at.

Thank you for a most informative, and disheartening, presentation. When the first Arab oil embargo occurred in 1973, though a very young man, I had a sense that life in America was changing in a very significant way. You've done an excellent job in clarifying the issue for me. Thanks, Bill
