Some of you may remember that I used to quote that blog and embed their videos. That was 3 or 4 years ago now, when the 2008 meltdown was still fresh in people's minds. Henry Blodget and Aaron Task were running the show then, and they had some good things to say about this god-awful mess called the United States. But no more. Yahoo watered the blog down, and then watered it down some more, and now it appears they've finally shut it down for good.
Maybe Yahoo's Daily Ticker is down only today for some reason, I don't know. But that doesn't change what I have to say.
As I said back in April, in 2014, the historical lesson is complete. There seemed to be an opportunity for real change in America after the meltdown, but it only seemed that way—that was a mirage. We now know who won and who lost. America's elites have never been in a better position to screw the rest of us than they are right now. And they've been screwing us like there's no tomorrow. I wish George Carlin were here to see it, but he probably wouldn't want to be. RIP, George.
