Trying keep my photo culling action going.

Well, here we are at the end of the free trade. low tax, no regulations era. It was good while it lasted. Or was it?

What do we have to show for 40 years of free trade, low taxes and deregulation. We have too much cheap stuff manufactured in 3rd world sweat shops. And we have entire stores devoted to selling stuff to store all our stuff in. To hold all that stuff - stuffed into storage boxes - we have ever larger houses. Houses that we can no longer afford. We have $5,000 purses, we have bathrooms that are bigger than our grandparent's living room, we have the worst medical care system in the developed world.

It is time to move to the next chapter.
