Fun With Headlines

Lack of jobs leaves more suburban, middle class sliding into poverty

And what is the economics lesson we have learned here at the Infidel Express over the course of the past couple years, boy and girls?

That's right.. wealth is relative.. and if you stay the same, but most everyone else is doing worse, that's just like getting a big fat raise!

Fourteen months ago, Aurora resident Prentiss Bailey was going about happily living his life as usual.

He was employed at a printing company where he’d worked for 10 years—a job that paid $17 an hour and that with the consistent overtime and $4,000 and $5,000 annual Christmas bonuses he got, enabled him to take care of his family and enjoy what he considered a middle income life.

Today, he and his 10-year–old daughter live in a homeless shelter.

You'd think that the consequence of that would be that people would stop having kids, but really it's the younger professional types that are mostly unaffected that are not having kids. You know the type.. like our very own Steve K... dating a girl for years on end.. not getting married.. not having any kids.. pulling in a decent check from his software dev job.

The odds he ends up in a homeless shelter are fairly low. Everyone else.. it's a crap shoot.

And of course.. the best part..

Despite frosty relations with the titans of Wall Street, President Obama has still managed to raise far more money this year from the financial and banking sector than Mitt Romney or any other Republican presidential candidate, according to new fundraising data.

Obama’s key advantage over the GOP field is the ability to collect bigger checks because he raises money for both his own campaign committee and for the Democratic National Committee, which will aid in his reelection effort.

As a result, Obama has brought in more money from employees of banks, hedge funds and other financial service companies than all of the GOP candidates combined, according to a Washington Post analysis of contribution data. The numbers show that Obama retains a persistent reservoir of support among Democratic financiers who have backed him since he was an underdog presidential candidate four years ago.

Remember when Zombie Steve Jobs said that Obama was going to be a one term president because of his draconian policies toward corporate America?

That cancer is a bitch.
