Not sure I get it

So, the U.S. government (which handles its finances so well) is taking over an insurance company because of that company's inability to handle its finances.

Don't completely understand it.

I know it has something to do with trying to avoid a total collapse of our economy (which would be a bad thing) but where does all this end?

We're in deep. So, who do we blame? That's the game isn't it? Who gets the blame? Who can we pin all this on?

Maybe us.

Maybe we've been asleep at the citizenship wheel, caring more for about what we want, not enough about what's really needed. So, when we get what we want, we get fat and sassy and think everything is going along just great.

It wasn't.

There was financial slight of hand.
The poor were getting burned.
The economic divides were getting larger.

And as long as we knew the rule to the slight of hand, and we weren't poor and we were on the right side of the great divide ...everything was OK.

Now what?

The slight of hand is being shown to be what it is ... dishonest.
Everyone is getting burned.
The have's might become the have nots.

It's going to get interesting.

Are you ready?
