    This was first published during the Obama administration. Anyone else notice how much the rabbit resembled Maus?

    I wonder how much of that largesse trickled down onto the workers.

    My guess is none.

    It’s sad that Republicans USED to support the working man, but no longer. For example, from REPUBLICAN Senator Daniel J. Morrell of Pennsylvania, in 1866: In his first speech in Congress Mr. Morrell uttered the following plea for labor: “The American workingman must live in a house, not a hut; he must wear decent clothes and eat wholesome and nourishing food. He is an integral part of the municipality, the State, and the Nation; subject to no fetters of class or caste; neither pauper, nor peasant, nor serf, but a free American citizen. He has the ballot, and if it were possible it would be dangerous to degrade him. The country stands pledged to give him education, political power, and a higher form of life than foreign nations accord their laborers, and he must be sustained by higher rates of wages than those of Europe. Our industries operated by American citizens must be freed from foreign interference and organized into a distinct American system, which will exact some temporary sacrifices but result in general prosperity and true national independence. In maintaining diversified industries we utilize every talent, provide a field for every capacity, and bind together the whole people in mutual dependence and support, assuring the strength and security of our Republic.”

    The US has degenerated into a plutocracy not seen since the 1920s. That ISN’T complicated.

    The trouble with “trickle down economics” is that I can’t tell it from being p***ed on.

    The corporate welfare queens

    Need their means and their means AND their means

    The rest of us kinda get screwed

    And lucky to get crumbs for food

    The problem, of course, is that

    Bribes can make companies fat

    And the rest of us leaner

    (Going without our deaner)

    As if the Earth was damn flat!

    The Orthodox Church of Free Enterprise has some suspicious dogma.

    Because they believe in self sufficiency and that govt is at best a necessary evil and at worst a constant threat. They don’t care about helping you through govt. They put it all on the inadequate system of charities. Otherwise a form of “social Darwinism” they see as the best way to weed out the weak only leaving the strong. Their version of strong.

    Funny how much the GOP says it’s against socialism- except when it involves Big Business.

    Not a good idea to hire a rabbit to work in your fields.
