Some observations about our country’s economic situation.

Are you involved in any aspect of the financial industry?

Are you, in fact, in any way, shape, or form dependent on the stock market for your retirement, supplemental income, future expenditures, children’s education, or just disposable income?

Heck, is your household making more than 75 grand a year?

Yes?

THEN IT IS NOT IN YOUR CLASS INTEREST TO VOTE FOR ANY DEMOCRAT IN THE 2010 ELECTION.

Seriously, about the 75 grand and above bit.

That thirteen bucks a week that you’re supposed to be getting? That gets eaten up by this, starting in about 2012 – and for our college readers, three years is not an eternity for the rest of us. It’s about eighty paychecks – and don’t forget those Bush tax cuts that are going to expire. Their disappearance is going to startle some people who didn’t think that they were on the hook… and some of the ones who aren’t going to be startled are already starting to minimize their income. Good luck trying to get them to perform on cue.

I’d leave you with a snark on the people that brought us this mess, but Francis already did it for me.
