Tickle my tickle spots … trickle down economies don’t work

I saw this graphic posted on Facebook. It reads:

The next time someone tells you that Obama is destroying the economy, remind them that the stock market is close to an all-time high and that corporate profits are as well… When they tell you that that hasn’t helped them any, remind them they’ve just admitted trickle-down economics doesn’t work.”

My main economy information usually comes from NPR’s Marketplace. Although I don’t listen every day, Kai Ryssdal is often not as thrilled about the direction of the markets. That’s certainly not to say I’m right.

I’m admitting ignorance.

I have heard record corporate profits on several occasions, which pisses me off. I’ve heard that corporations are hoarding cash while continuing with hiring freezes.

Regardless, I’d love to know if anyone here — you know who you are you quiet bunch of quiet-heads — if this information can be backed up, since I’m a lameass who can’t seem to do it quickly.

And secondly, I strongly recommend taking a look at this blog: Whiskey and the Morning After.

Holy shit, the thing is a train wreck. When referring to republicans, they write “we” and they use “they” when referring to liberals.

Yet like my conservative friends, he appears liberal but clings to a conservative label.

They, him or her or they, post things that you shouldn’t miss like:

And those are just the front page of today’s version of the blog.

In a post called, “Confessions of a Recovering Catholic” he writes (emphasis mine):

For me, they don’t have all of the answers, no religion does. I’ve learned that in life, asking someone to give you the answers is intellectually lazy and a recipe for disaster. Even somehow through the course of my experiences, I were to find that the “true faith” was Catholicism, I could never go back to a church that allowed a priest to rail against “sins” that he was committing before or after the very service in which he condemned others for the same offense. I could never forgive a church that allowed the leader of their Knights of Columbus group, someone who was considered a pillar of the community, to molest kids in his basement office while his wife chatted with the victim’s parents upstairs and never try to stop him.

I’ll never stop having respect for those who consider themselves to be Christians, Catholics, or whatever and actually concentrate on what the religion was originally supposed to be about. However, until the day comes when the message goes back to taking care of the poor and outcast instead of the pathological obsession with people’s sexual habits and controlling their lives, count me out.

I super heart this blog!

The markets could be rocking for all anyone cares.

All I know is: Whiskey and the Morning after just got added to my watch list for cool blogs.
