    I have two college degrees in engineering, am out of work again, attend church weekly, and I absolutely despise the capitalistic system we are forced to play in--it clearly only enriches those at the top while making the masses scramble for what few crumbs they can't prevent from fall down.

    As the inequality gap continues to increase, even beyond unprecedented levels, I have to say I have the opposite of an "upbeat outlook," and for the life of me cannot figure out how anyone who can think past his nose can find anything "upbeat" in this oppressive economy we are now in, let alone more than half the country having a positive outlook. Do they not care, or is the attitude "all is well in Zion," when clearly all is not well? I don't get it.
