And Still We Ask: Where Are The Jobs?

Post by Guest on Mon Apr 11, 2011 9:48 am

How many top executives at banks and Fortune 500 companies are pulling down these obscene amounts of money? How many of the millions of long term un and underemployed could be brought back into the work force, paid a living wage as a productive member of society if those “salaries and perks” were to go to a few million more folks rather than concentrated at the top of the economic chain? How much better would our economy be if that were happening?

Instead, all we see are stories from the Village Idiots Pundits on how serious Rep Paul Ryan is for calling for the budget to be cut to pieces and the social safety net be destroyed at a time when it is most needed. Somewhere, there is an alternative universe where the ongoing destruction of the middle class has not been occurring. Here we just get to sing the Blues. And hang on by our fingertips.

I probably shouldn't mention hedge fund manager John Paulson who made $5 BILLION himself betting with Goldman Sachs that the mortgage bubble would burst.
