I read this Joe Klein post and had to agree.
If you are getting a paycheck, you couldn’t help but notice that your take home pay has been better since last April. Unless you are someone who can’t figure out why that happened.
The majority of the working poor in this country are white people. Yes, yes, yes, a larger portion of minorities are poor, but did the white working class people miss the fact that they got a pay boost last April? Has every single person forgotten that they essentially got a pay raise?
I think so.
Here in Houston, we have no less than four AM radio stations that spend almost every waking hour trying to tear down this presidency. You can hear their gloating on almost any channel. This is far worse than anything that happened in 2005. There is a community of people who want President Obama to be a one term president — for no other reason than to gloat over it.
With the Supreme court opinion last week and talk radio types pushing for corporations to make a stand early, I think our system will break.
One thing I know. If the system breaks, Obama is the person who I trust to fix it. Why else would he have tried to hard to be president of a broken country?
So, here we are. A nation of idiots who don’t even know how or what happens to their own damn paychecks — they just think GREAT more money. And for the house flippers and the bankers who are too scared to loan the money THAT YOU HAVE ON DEPOSIT that they use to not make loans, but keep and pay you very little if any interest — cry for them — just like Michael Berry cried for those poor bankers today.
I blame teachers.
