Wall Street Feels the Bern

By -

Hillary Clinton, Wall’s Street’s lap dog (I was going to write “whore”, but I get slammed for such things, so I wisely decided on a different word), shows how forceful she has been dealing with the likes of Lloyd Blankfein and Jamie Dimon. She said………and I quote………..”Cut it out!”

If we have the horrid misfortune of this wretched person becoming our President, you can expect more fiery rhetoric aimed at Wall Street, like “Knock it off”, “Stop, you guys!” and “Thanks for the six-figure speaking fee!” What a disgusting, criminal, money-grubbing hypocrite.

PREFACE/SHAMELESS PLUG: If you’re not a Slope Plus member, this weekend’s post is reason enough for you to become one. I hope you’ll considering joining after checking out the goodies. Danke schoen.

Political Unity…An Oxymoron

Some things never change…I wonder if they ever will? Case in point, my post of November 7th, 2012…still seems relevant today, except the U.S. National Debt has now reached $18.6 Trillion and there are even deeper differences, not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also within these parties (on issues such as the refugee crisis, as one example).
