Live Stupid, Die Stupid

About those big bonuses... This from AlterNet :
Meanwhile, 2009 was a record-breaking year for Wall Street bonuses, as firms issued $150 billion to their executives. 100% of these bonuses are a direct result of our tax dollars, so if we used this money to create jobs, instead of giving them to a handful of top executives, we could have paid an annual salary of $30,000 to 5 million people.

So while US workers are now working more hours and have become dramatically more productive and profitable, our pay is actually declining and all the dramatic increases in wealth are going straight into the pockets of the Economic Elite.
Think about that. Our tax dollars could have created 5 million 30K/yr jobs. Instead, that 150 billion of our money has has gone to line the pockets of a few hundred cretins that should be hanging from the lampposts.

If the average American worker insists on staying uninformed and stultifyingly ignorant when it comes to what's happening in America and how they are being plundered, pillaged, robbed and shafted by this federal government and the Wall Street elite, then they do indeed deserve everything they'll never get.

OK... You wanna live stupid? Then die stupid. You and your brainless publik skool edumacated kids.

History will remember you... As the nation and people that had it all... And just pissed it away.

Right freaking on...well, except for that bit about "creating jobs".
Where are all these hundreds of millions of jobs Obama has supposedly created?
Somewhere in his mind, and in propaganda press releases, but that's about all.

Government doesn't create jobs, it destroys the wealth and fruit of the working to reward those who favor its expansion (like thoke BanKhazar crooks). It's nothing but a freaking buzz-word for more bureaucracy and bribes!

I'm not saying we should have created those jobs with the money, it's just to show what the money could have been better spend on.

Taxpayer-money-created jobs are bad from any angle, since they are not sustainable.
