(TGIF) Open Thread

After an insane week, it's time to check back in with the world.

So here’s the question I find myself asking: What will it take to break the hold of this cruel cult on the minds of the policy elite? When, if ever, will we get back to the job of rebuilding the economy?

I have a slightly different question. When, if ever, will we get back to the job of building an economy for the people?

Today, it's clearly designed to work only for the select few while everyone else is watching their livelihoods and their futures slip away. The plutocrats are fine with grabbing a bigger and bigger slice of the pie while pretending that more wars and more jails, fewer teachers and more austerity is the answer to "fixing" the ills of our country.
