This post was formerly entitled “Unity” and it originally featured this photo of now President Barack Obama and now Secretary of State Hilary Clinton at their first post-primary public appearance together in Unity, NH, on June 27, 2008. I still have my perfectly even 200 posts, as I repurposed the post with the fewest page views on this blog, so that it will be on the front page of this blog in posterity. The last shall be first. It is my own little version of income redistribution, only in this case, we are talking about page views.
I was going to write a long, final post as The Great CNBC Sucks, but I am so utterly sick of Republicans and CNBC (except Trish Regan) that I am also tired of writing about them, at least for free. I need to focus on making money. Instead of writing a long goodbye post, I recommend that you read Thomas Frank’s What’s the Matter with Kansas? You can buy it here, you can read huge portions of it for free on Google, you can go to your local bookstore and read a chapter at a time, or you can borrow it from your local public library. If you read that book - and if you have the sense to consider that my Republican Party has for thirty years been using the non-progressive tax code, huge deficit spending, reflationary monetary policies, lax regulatory regimes, and corrupt government subsidies for GOP favored industries such as Wall Street, oil, nuclear power, and defense to steal from the poor, middle class, and future generations and concentrate America’s wealth among only the rich – then you will understand the title of my post. Unless you personally are a multimillionaire, the Republicans have been burglarizing all of us and our children for thirty years, and we need thirty years of Democratic dominance to get our money back. Be careful, though, What’s the Matter with Kansas? makes me want to punch someone everytime I read it.
Thank you for visiting CNBC Sucks and to George for moderating this blog over the last two months. I am moderating again, so please feel free to leave comments, but I will not comment in reply. I have also created a contact page that provides instructions on how to reach me.
I wish you all the best. With the help of Jessica Biel, Shannon Whirry, Eva Amurri, Halle Berry, Heidi Klum, and Scarlett Johansson, I leave with some “food for thought”, for old times’ sake. Goodbye.
