I find it amusing that the article states,"Then, Big Oil's profits dried up. Exxon-Mobil saw its profits cut in half." That's half off a back-to-back record-breaking period...or, in real terms, still a profit of $22.5 BILLION. Cry me a river. Meanwhile, I'm laid off again. Why,you ask?(maybe not;I'll tell ya anyway) Hi...more
You go, Glen...just...go. There are lies of comission, and lies of omission. All are lies, nonetheless. And if you read your Bible, or your Book of Mormon, you know that lies don't get you to heaven. No matter how many tears you cry.
For the Beckites who blindly follow, because the man tickles your scaredy-bone, I'll...more
Mister President, Where can I get a job? I'm over 50, a very highly skilled construction worker with over 25 years in my trade, and I still can't get even an interview after sending out at least 100 resumes a month. I exhausted my unemployment over a year ago, my 401k was depleted to try to save our home (but that didn...more

"Any society that exalts philosophy and denigrates plumbing is bound to fail; eventually, neither their philosophy nor their plumbing will hold water."
Don't remember who said that last one, but as a 'worker bee', I really like it.
No, Goldman doesn't have to answer questions from nuns, or be even a little bit socially responsible.There's no profit in it. They own the Fed, they own the economy. If we don't do as they say, they'll crash the whole thing again. And make a handy little return on that hedge, which will net a tidy bonus....more
Gosh, that atricle was just super-chock full of useful information! (What's the symbol for withering sarcasm, again?)
Here's the deal, folks: YOU ARE HAVING WORK DONE ON YOUR HOME, WHERE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY REST THEIR HEADS. Always hire a local, licensed and bonded PROFESSIONAL! The old saying is "you can't cheat a...more
See, it's best if you don't know...the company that promised you a pension has taken that away, and moved you to the 401k crap shoot (which ALWAYS gets robbed, right at the end), and now the Congress has its sights set on your SS. Every promise made to me by the rich white men has been broken, and the advice I get is,"...more
Lkessler, I would humbly submit that the very wealthy have very robust and significant representation in our system of government; hence the difficulty of raising or even maintaining their level of taxation. It's also my belief that this is also the reason that GE paid an effective taxation rate of -60%.
