Just a reminder for the coming weeks.

Never before have I seen a politician more deserving of the colloquialism "The Man".

They told us in the 60's and 70's, The Man is coming, and It's coming to take us for everything we've got, till not even crumbs fall out of our pockets when they shake us. Well, The Man is here, and Hillary is It's chosen avatar. So what do we do? Do we supplicate and submit, or do we fight?

1. That has been my analogy for banks and payday lenders for years

I tell friends that their business model is to pick low income people up by the feet and shake them until every bit of loose change in their pockets falls out.

2. Amen.

I was in Michigan the day after the primaries visiting my fiancee, and her grandmother had the most poignant way of putting it-- admittedly, I cribbed what she was getting at in this OP. I consider myself blessed to have authentic, 60's era flower children as my family now; I'm not even kidding you.
