That's us. Dead. No jobs. Bleak future.
So far, it just keeps getting worse.
One of the reasons for the downward spiral is that corporations are sitting on piles of cash and not investing.
Now, the Reps say that business doesn't invest because of uncertainty.
That's just pure BS.
They don't invest because they think things are gonna get worse. They are not uncertain about it either.
It's common sense. When you fear the future, you save money.
Consumers are feeling the same things - fear about the future. So, consumers stop buying and start saving. Good for us, bad for the economy; technical term is 'fallacy of composition.'
So Barry, where does that fear come from, anyway?
Itsa simple answer Barry. The fear comes from the Tea Party.
They have shut down the government and created fear about the future.
The entire system is gridlocked because of the Tea Party's shutdown of government in conjunction with our sellout to the oligarchs. We are an oligarchy now.
From now on, we ARE the third world where extreme disparities create misery and violence.
So, Barry, there aint no middle here.
There is either oligarchy or there is demonstration and revolution.
There aint no incremental solutions either. Any change has gotta be wholesale and dramatic and way more extreme than your jobs plan. Y'all can read my solutions in earlier posts below.
It may be too late already.
So, Barry, Where are you? Where are you?
Go down to Liberty Square in New York and show us where you are.
Itsa a double dog dare for you. Go down there and show us that you can lead.
It's our last hope.
