The Truth Cannot Hide For Long

The Truth comes out. Our Marie Antoinette economy …::: Clean Up The IRS: New revelations reveal the truth about the organization’s targeting conservative groups

 Median income … “Let them eat cake” is the traditional translation of the French phrase “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche“, supposedly spoken by “a great princess” upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was made from dough enriched with butter and eggs, and those ingredients were even more scarce and more costly than dough, making brioche even more out of the reach of the peasants than bread, the quote supposedly would reflect the princess’s obliviousness as to the condition of the people.

And guess where they live … Why washington DC of course. The home of the 1%.


Bloomberg attributes D.C.’s high income levels to federal worker salaries and the concentration of lawyers and lobbyists:

Total compensation for federal workers, including health care and other benefits, last year averaged $126,369, compared with $122,697 in 2009, according to Bloomberg News calculations of Commerce Department data. There were 170,467 federal employees in the District of Columbia as of June. The Washington area includes the District of Columbia, parts of Northern Virginia, eastern Maryland and eastern West Virginia.

With the high levels of income also come high levels of inequality. As The Washington Post reported in December that the District of Columbia has a high Index of Dissimilarity, which is used to measure segregation:

At 74 percent, the District had the fifth-highest segregation level in the nation, and Virginia had one of the lowest, 50 percent. Maryland was in between, with 65 percent.

THE BUBBLE MENTALITY PERMEATES THE RULING CLASS, the let them eat cake crowd. So out of touch with the people, all they care about, is they got theirs.

Heck, even Jimmy Carter wanted to be thought of the guy who was so much like you, he carried his own luggage.
And anybody opposing anything Obomba has has got to be opposed. Republicans and Democrats. Ever seen what the Republicans are doing to Ted Cruz, a hispanic I might add.
And now we have bridges that were supposed to be repaired by the stimulus, and still. We have all these crumbling bridges. 20,000 bridges are “fracture critical” …. An Associated Press review of federal bridge records found that there are more than 65,000 structurally deficient bridges nationwide and more than 20,000 that are classified as “fracture critical” because failure of a single component could cause a collapse.
And you thought the Stimulus Bill was supposed to fix all that, including all the schools that were in need of repair, all the roads, and anything else the Democrats could use to get you to think they were doing a good job, when no such thing was happening or intended to happen.
Shame on you, next time pay attention it is your life they play with.
And while you are devastated, they are throwing parties at the White House and celebrating the non-existent recovery.
The truth is right here … Low information voters are rejoicing, over their new part-time status, as the wealth gap is now the widest on record. The top 1%, that Democrats always talk about, comes true. Remember the 1% and 99% rally, not heard from them again. Neither have I.
