What’s happened to America?
1968: Americans land on the Moon. 2011: Americans forced to hitch a ride to the space station with the Russians.
196o: Detroit is the capitol of America’s vibrant, dominant auto industry. 2011: Detroit is a dying city and the auto industry only survives because of government bailouts.
1950’s: the GI Bill and other federal programs help build a strong middle class. 2010’s: income inequality balloons to alarming proportions and the middle class shrinks.
