The Stilted Age

Are we entering a new age? With the richest 1% of Americans bringing home 20% of the income in 2005 are we seeing the rise of the Robber Baron class? Big money and influence peddling mix in the reflecting pools of Washington, D.C.

With the exporting of "high cost" production to India and China, are American workers suffering? With the importing of tainted and fake products, some life threatening, does the consumer re-enter the blighted landscape of "buyer beware"?

Conservatives wanted a return to the good 'ole days. Did they turn the clock back a bit too far, say the 1880's? It appears we've entered the Stilted Age...
