This post was actually left as a comment by me on a recent post At the Book Of Cletis, Why Is The Middle Class Shrinking.
Since Reagan, we have been marching steadily toward Fascism. We are almost there. No one trusts that our votes will actually count. Corporations have unlimited money to spend influencing our elections. We the people, has turned into "We the Corporations".
Corporations have made necessities (like healthcare) out of the reach of many people, and when laws are passed to fix it, the Oligarchy sends out its' troops to lie and mislead.
I grew up before Reagan, and I lived in a completely different United States. That United States, had good jobs for it's citizens. And, while there was some corruption, most of our elected officials cared more about the country than they cared about political gain. I think of this as America and I sure miss her.

Whiff of Phenol Spells Troubleby Abrahm Lustgarten ProPublica, June 21, 2012, 10 a.m.
The stench of phenol was overpowering, wafting from mud taken from a layer of rock thousands of feet beneath southern Ohio.
It was 1989 and workers for the Aristech Chemical Corp. had begun drilling a disposal well for dangerous, chemical-laden waste from the company's acetone manufacturing plant in Haverhill.
The well site was next to two older Aristech disposal wells, in a spot where federal and state regulators believed hazardous materials would remain safely tucked away forever almost 6,000 feet under the earth's surface.
