    I find this shifting of wealth disturbing,maybe it's more the fact it's our "wealth" that's getting shifted. Not that of the extraordinarily wealthy, they're just fine and getting better every day. It's the ever-narrowing faction that falls somewhere between middle-class and upper middle which used to be most of America.

    Maybe it's only as basic as being disturbed at seeing America lose her economic power, it's place in the world as a land of opportunity. Now maybe not so much.
