I'm not a "Never Had." I know what it's like to pay bills on time and have a little left over. I remember vacations and pedicures and going out to dinner. As a "Used-to-Have," I know exactly what Corporate America, lobbyists and politicians have taken away from me.
America is stuck on the couch, remote in one hand, bowl of ice cream or beer in the other. I'm not talking about the American people themselves being on their couches. It's our whole economy and society that's stuck on the couch, metaphorically.
