    Where the hell is that economy that Barry and his posse keep telling everyone is getting better?

    You know the one that he's now got his laser sight on??

    Oh wait. I forgot. He doesn't give a shit. He's not running for POTUS again and will be taken care of by we the taxpayer for the rest of his jackass life. Never mind.

    Hey lets all give three big cheers for a declining standard of living......hiphip horray, hip hip hoo......ah fuck it, who cares if we have a declining standard of living.

    As has been pointed out repeatedly by the right wingers. Our "poor" people, when compared to the rest of the worlds poor, just have got it so good.

    And the middle? Well, just grab your boot straps and jerk yourself right off into the wealthy class. And if you can't do that, oh well.

    But the ultra wealthy? They need all the help they can get from the rest of us. And don't be fucking wanting to tax them more. They have a hard row to hoe you know. Trying to figure out what to do with all that money is......taxing. I mean very hard.

    Obama is a fool and I bet he used to get his ass kicked often.

    Economy? Mark it down- I predict the FED will be disgraced as they will be forced to increase QE by the end of the year.
