“Obama and his West Wing band of Bolsheviks
have a master plan to strangle the US economy.”
The above quote I ran across earlier today in Reuters. I’m not sure who it is from but it got me to thinking. Is it Obama with the plan to strangle the American economy or is it the corporations who have that plan? Or is a a combination of both? I do believe Obama is just another corporatist pawn so my vote is for both. But it’s not simply Obama or the present day CEOs with such a plan. This plan has been being carried out for decades now. Call it “economic slow kill” if you wish. And this is especially true when it comes to American jobs.
Jobs used to be plentiful in the US. In fact they used to be so plentiful that if you wanted a job or if you wanted to change jobs all you had to do was go out and get one.

Today, as the post points out, there are millions of workers that cannot find a job and that are out of work. Some of them for months or years have been out of work. Others are working in low pay service jobs like McDonalds or Walmart because those are the only jobs available. As stated in the post jobs in America have gone from good jobs to bad jobs to no jobs. The post states, “We are witnesing the tragic downfall of the American worker…”. Continue Reading
