We're Back, Baby!


Did you hear the news??

Wall Street is back on top and the Dow Jones is hitting record highs!!

Awesome.

It's not like Wall Street's reckless pursuit of profits is what drove our economy into the ground in the first place, right?

Fear not, citizens! Take heart in knowing that as long as the insanely wealthy are making money hand over fist, there will always be enough minimum wage jobs to go around!

What's that, you say? You can't pay your bills on minimum wage? Don't you worry, kiddo, there's plenty more where that came from! Here, take two!

What? You need to feed your kids also? Well, that's what Food Stamps are for! Now, I realize that there are fewer Food Stamps available these days, but that's because the stupid government can't balance it's books when the only people paying their taxes are Middle Class chumps.

But don't you worry about that, either.

If we stay on this course, there won't be a Middle Class!

Now take your Food Stamps and run along before you miss the bus. With all these budget cuts, there are fewer buses also, so if you miss it, you are going to be late to your second job.

Wow, you nailed it. The stock market is going gangbusters, the rich are getting richer, but we're not getting a commensurate growth in U.S. Jobs. Maybe if we cut taxes for the rich, that'll do the trick, huh?

Hey, it's hard work sitting on all that money!
