Sorry, But the Economy is in Trouble
What is the point? As we have been saying, the economy is quietly tanking, which is a natural occurrence after bubbles. Bear Stearns' CFO says the fixed income market is the worst he has seen in 22 years. The politicians keep wanting to say all is well, hoping the economy will not be too out of sorts by the next election. The words of assurance are simply for your consumption. A good or bad economy is irrelevant when you can vote yourself a pay raise, except as it pertains to campaigning.
Hillary Clinton is going to hang out with the wealthiest few who enjoy tax breaks you will never experience. They will give her small tokens of cash to guarantee her continued support of preferential treatment of this special economic citizen; those who do not labor for their income, but "invest." These are people she just criticized, condemning the "loop-hole" that provides them with preferential tax treatment.
Special treatment of the wealthiest class has always existed, and it is because the politicians are participants in this class that it always will. Hillary will accept the money, the ill gotten gains, and they will give them, knowing how to make a worthwhile investment. Guess who gets screwed?
