Somewhere in Washington DC there is a Republican Senator saying, "Give them just enough money to wipe their asses with so they don't protest." That's the game plan. Just like the last financial stimulus bailout that paid millions of dollars to CEO's and only $300.00 to you and me. It was better than the first tax-payer bailout under George Bush Sr. for the S&L crisis, we got nothing for that one. We were told to shut-the-f78K up and say, "Thank you sir, may I have another."
Mitch McConnell, the guy who would not allow a vote on President Obama's judge appointee for a year as some kind of voodoo justice, is now crying foul that the Democrats aren't rejoycing on bended knees for a $1200.00 check for you and me and billions for the Corporate Elite.
Albeit, since we can't buy a freakin roll of toilet paper right now to save our lives, twelve-hundred bucks to wipe our behinds with does sound tempting, still, I'll take the revolution instead.
So thank you for thinking about us Mr. Republican Man, but keep your money.
Have you no shame!
Need I remind anyone that the French and Russian revolutions happened for this very same reason?
Historically speaking, on this day in 1900 American industrialist Andrew Carnegie incorporates his Carnegie Steel Company and pockets $25 million -- more than half the company's $40 million first-year profits. His average worker made twelve dollars... a week.
On this day in 1965, 200 University of Michigan faculty members cancelled regular classes and staged a series of rallies and speeches to denounce the Vietnam war.
The choice is yours.
