Really interesting article. Gallery has very informative, easy to understand psych concepts illustrating aspects of bitterness/depression.

"Several reports have shown that the true culprit behind the pervasiveness of this disorder among people age 65 and older is disability."

A problem that is solvable and government can't be in our fridges to tell us what to do.

Absolutely agree. Humans, especially children, need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance, whether it comes from a large social group, such as clubs, religious groups, sports teams, or small social connections with family members, mentors, close friends/confidants. They need to love and be loved by others. In the absence of these elements, many become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety, and clinical depression all of which are contributing factors to childhood obesity and can't be solved by simply adding sin taxes to so-called "junk food."

Well, they need something to give people a reason to come back, besides a 4-dollar cup of warm milk dispensed by an automatic machine. Finally getting reasonable with the WiFi was a long-delayed welcome development. Ditto for McDonald's, who seems to be competing with S. for foot traffic, interestingly.

Good summary, I don't think he's been sitting on his hands this whole time. I do however, think he plays the middle a bit too much. I still wish he had more FDR (had a point of view) in him than Carter (never knew where he stood)....

I know, if you're a liberal it's suddenly (well, not so suddenly) in vogue to complain that Obama is just about the worst Democratic president ever.

But I'd like to ask all those folks: what other Democratic president have we had these past 40 years or so who accomplished as much? Health care reform, the biggest financial services reform bill since the Great Depression, saving of the banks (which, distasteful as it was, saved us from an even worse calamity), maintaining (and indeed, increasing) aid for the poor and especially the children of the poor, and on and on. Oh, and I didn't mention, the biggest stimulus package ever, to keep the economy from totally imploding. Plus repeal of DADT and many other progressive social reforms.

Yep, fellow libs, you just keep on talking about how Obama is a closet Republican, how he's not that different than Bush, and on and on. We did that in 2000, and it worked out well.

Greed: States and cities now face the issue of urban property sinking into negative equity territory that a rise in property taxes will lead to even more foreclosures and abandonments, and hence even lower fiscal returns. Many are seeking Chapter 9 bankruptcy.

...The financial sector recognizes a dimension of economic behavior that textbooks politely refrain from citing: the ability to capture regulatory agencies, gain control of the courts and buy control of politics.

How is it that rioting has become the only way to be seen and heard in society today? According to this article it appears to be over entitlement. That the gap between the have and have-nots is to great, that resentment of the blue collar to the urban hipster is intolerable....what is intolerable is that people don't see themselves as the antidote, the solution to these problems.
