Ted Rall for November 23, 1998
Man 1: You know, the unemployed are the great unsung heroes of this amazing economy. Their joblessness puts downward pressure on wages, reduces inflation and produces a stable business climate. Everyone who's doing well owes them big-time-they're true patriots! Man 2: Dollar? Man 1: Get a job, you lazy bastard! Man 3: Idiot! What if he listens to you? Man 1: Not to worry-nothing fazes an American Patriot.
