“I Make the Dough, You Get the Glory”

You may have heard that today the Dow Jones (US stock market) reached a record high, the highest level since the Great Depression.

Too bad the US economy still sucks for everyone else.

And now there’s that lovely sequester to contend with, which will likely hurt the most vulnerable the most – as these things always do.

Last night, Jon Stewart spoke the truth.  The Republicans never wanted to avoid the sequester.  They wanted it to take effect because it cut government spending without them having to give a thing in return.  And they could make the President look like an ineffective leader when they’re the thugs stealing from the poor to give to the rich.

When Wall Street is making money like never before, “corporate profits are eating the economy” and the poor and middle class still can’t catch a break, something is wrong.

The system is broken.

What’s scary is that nobody seems to care enough to do anything about it.

But what’s even scarier is that the system is so weighted in favour of the powerful that maybe there isn’t anything we can do about it anymore.
