I probably would have the same internal conflict if I didn't have kids.  It's different though when you know your kids are screwed, they are an extension of me. 

If it were other people's kids, I'd probably be equal parts meh and guilt.

I find it increasingly shocking that relatively well-off middle class people in a healthy democracy feel that they have no power here.

I have many problems with the left, but they are going to rise to address this, it's inevitable in my mind.  The public will have to improve our level of dialogue to ensure that the pullback from this insanity is a soft landing.

Please don't fall prey to the idea that there's no money or that we are worse off.  On the whole we are much better.  We don't need to penalize the rich, only to allow them to continue doing what they do with a better division of the spoils.

We also should not penalize innovation, entrepreneurship or those who are actually building things and helping the economy by hiring and creating work...

I have a heart-warming story.  There was some undeveloped land around the city that was being preserved for natural green space.  Local real estate developers for decades have wanted to buy it to build homes on it, but the city wouldn't allow it.  The owner of some developer donated a million dollars to a local hospital, and a couple of years later the city changed the zoning to let them finally build on it.

Democracy rules.

Another heart-warming story:  My friend who just got married just bought a modest detached 2-story house.  In order to afford it they're going to turn the basement, 3rd bedroom, kitchen, dining room, 2nd washroom, and garage all into 6 separate apartments to rent out, and also rent out the backyard for parties on weekends.  The backyard is very tiny so the parties will suck, but whatever, they're homeowners!

(the previous story is totally untrue and was created for satirical purposes)
