I've never written about my day-job in here, but I lost my day-job this morning. I'm sure I'm just one of another 600,000 this month, just like January. What are you gonna do? Maybe Michigan has re-education opportunities. I'm going to take my time and figure this out. But considering the global pickle were in, I'm not expecting much any time soon.
Still, I'm really mad. A lot of economists are mad. A lot of economists blame the Republicans, and they start with Reagan and his cockamamie trickle-down crapola. Trickle-down economics-- what a load of hooey. The rich won't share, you idiots. How do you think they got rich? By not sharing! And whoever thought the market would self-regulate must have been high. Oh wait, that's the core belief of the GOP for the last 28 years. Along with their other core beliefs, hate and fear. Greed, hate, and fear. Some folks think the GOP is dying. Geez, I hope so.
So, thanks, you greedy Repug jerks. You laissez-faire, trickle-down, Milton Friedmanite, oligarchic-fascist, fear-mongering asshats; yeah, you, the ones granting personhood status to corporations while carrying the bible and wrapping yourselves in the flag. You won't rest until you turn us little people back into surfs or slaves. You won't rest until you can make a profit on everything, use up every last natural resource, trash every ecosystem, destroy the air, soil and water, control every genome. You suck.
Ok, I actually feel a little better after that. Now what? Yeah, I dunno.
