Welcome Again to the "Ownership" Society

No need to discuss recent events (of course, you may if you wish); they speak for themselves. Suffice it to say that Patrick.netters said it best: the American people got "owned" yet again.

I encourage you to re-read the U.S. Declaration of Independence (here to see the original) for inspiration. It's a beautiful document; it represents the founding spirit of our nation; read it with pride.

The following sentence represents the essential message of the document:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
In other words, for those who have the means it is not just their right but their responsibility to effect change.

Recent events are the culmination of "a long train of abuses". The only real question now is what do we do about it?

Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer that has recently become a concern amongst many people as the dangers of asbestos and its wide-spread use before the late 1970's become more well-known.
