The Poor Economy

So long as each political party spend million on ads and the Cable News Networks keep telling us how bad our economy is at present, the rich and large corporations are going to hold onto their cash (1.3 trillion now) and they are not going to hire anybody. So the economy keeps on crashing.

If it were up to me, I would take the money from the rich and give it to our citizens and tell them they could only buy cars made in USA, smart phones made in the Bay Area of CA, Hickey-Freeman suits made in Rochester NY, and sweet potatoes grown in Vardaman, MS. Then everybody could ride around in their cars using gasoline produced in Texas, wearing their fancy suits, texting on their smart phones, and farting like a mare mule in a full set of harness, thinking nobody was paying any attention.

The economy would return to normal. The rich could go back to stealing hot stoves and the undertakers could get rich from the auto accidents. All could continue saying the homeless should buy a house, widows with 4 children should get a job and get off public assistance.

A group of men came to Rabi’a in order to test her. They said: ‘Virtues and special gifts have been bestowed on men, not women. The crown of nobility has been placed on the heads of men, and the belt of generosity has been tied around their waists. The gift of prophesy has never descended on any woman. What can you boast of?’ Rabi’a replied: ‘I shall not dispute what you say. Yet women are less prone to pride, egoism and self-worship; they are less liable to think highly of themselves. And they do not so readily exploit others for their own pleasure.’
– Attar, “Rabi’a”

When she said, “And they do not so readily exploit others for their own pleasure” She had in mine Sarah Pailin, Michele Bachmann, Meg Whitman, Chirstine O’Dolandlle,” I guess.
