Stifle yourself, Barry
From the Big O's statement pardoning the national turkey*:
So in America, we come together when times are hard. We don’t give up. We don’t complain. And we don’t turn our backs on one another. Instead, we look out for another and we pitch in and we give what we can. And in the process, we reveal to the world what we love so much about this country. That’s who we are. And that’s who Thanksgiving reminds us to be.
What a tendentious self-serving crapfest, quelle surprise. If the elite were "looking out" for us, they'd at least have extended unemployment for the two million who are going to lose it soon. They haven't.
Read this from McClatchy; the poor bastard did everything right, and got fucked when the banksters crashed the economy and looted the ruins, and Barry, the Ds, and the Rs bailed them out, and didn't do squat for people who, ya know, actually do stuff like write code or do science or treat patients or design machine tools and on and on and on. Yay!
NOTE The article is interesting because it shows how the banksters fucking the housing market and jobs together mean that it's extra hard for DISemployment figures to recover. It used to be that if there wasn't work in your state, you could sell your house and move. But now you can't sell your house, so you can't move, so you can't go where the jobs, if any, are.
NOTE * No, that's not a circular reference
