 That's because it's not really capitalism anymore, and hasn't been for about a century.  The U.S. is far closer to fascism, economically, than capitalism anymore.
I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks that thing is somewhat less than esthetically pleasing.
 No kidding.  Last time I got one of those, I suggested that they print out what was already on file, and I'd annotate changes.
