The New New Deal

Bring back FDR!


MSM calls it Wall Street vs. Main Street. With The Great Depression Redux™ on the horizon, the comedy stylings of the Squirrel and Moose Candidacy, $700,000,000,000.00 of YOUR MONEY on the line to support Corporate Fat Cats, isn’t it time to talk about Mom & Pop™?

Mom & Pop are struggling. Let me tell you something about what I do when I’m not poking sticks at the bear: I subcontract for lending institutions to visit homes in foreclosure in Miami-Dade County. Business is good. Too good.

I’ve been thinking along these lines for a few weeks. It seems like I’m not the only one. I’d like to direct your attention to an article on HuffPo by Robert Creamer called “An Obama Administration Must Deal with the Underlying Cause of Our Economic Meltdown: The Increasing Concentration of Wealth.”

It’s far too long to quote here, but it’s all about the disproportionate wealth between those at the top of the food chain with the rest of us: The food.

Please give it a read.

Meanwhile, here's some Dub Reggae as The Easy Star All-Stars cover Pink Floyd's "Money" from the amazing Dub Side Of The Moon CD, here on EMtv:

And yet, the other night Rachael Maddow used the phrase "New New Deal." I think it's an idea that could catch on.

BTW, Anonymous, feel free to pick a nick. Or is the standard anonymity of the innertubes not good enough for a coward like you?

With all my love,

You are an elderly and lonely drug addict. You must be so proud of yourself.
