Eye on the storm

Happy hungry holidays!

It's late November, and as food banks struggle to fill the gap created by a $5 billion monthly reduction in food stamps across the nation, the financial sector continues to swell and pulse under the stimulating hand of an $85 billion monthly handout, with stock markets reaching record highs and corporate profits on the upswing. Stagnant employment and slow economic growth continue, which is likely to ensure further economic stimulation into the new year.

It's an old trick, to steal from the poor and give to the rich, but what a depressing and embarrassing time to be an American.

I wonder if they serve scones and hors d'oeuvres at this Tea Party I keep hearing about? Next election, Robin Hood will be my write-in candidate.

I'm with you--Robin Hood sounds like a GREAT choice. (grin)
