It’s Monday, monday …
Prepping myself for tomorrow’s SCOAMF’s SOTU address. Yes, I need this much time. WSJ:
Previewing Tuesday’s address to supporters Saturday, Mr. Obama said: “We can go in two directions. One is towards less opportunity and less fairness. Or we can fight for…building an economy that works for everyone, not just a wealthy few.” I
What are these two directions? Honestly – I want to know how Republicans (assumedly) want to create less opportunity? Gaaa. Strawmen.
A November Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 76% of Americans said the current economic structure in the U.S. is “out of balance and favors a very small proportion of the rich over the rest of the country.” Among independents, 79% agreed, as did 62% of Republicans.
You who the current structure favors? Those with friends and connections in Washington. Those with government jobs or government contracts or grants. The way to get ahead, today, is to get yourself a job in DC. Run for office, then become a lobbyist. Favored university administrator, to presidential aid, and back again. Then they all rig the game against the rest of us, with regulations and taxes.
Obama explains why he needs your money:
Investments. Like … Solyndra.
