It’s All About Jobs Stupid; The Store Is Open

 

So. I’m trying to not stay constantly angry about the debt ceiling situation in Washington, DC. I’m keeping myself busy with family and friends, and I have stayed away from the TV. I have avoided everything that would put me into contact with news content. I even stick my fingers in my ears when someone starts to speak of it.

It’s not fucking working. I’m as mad as all bloody hell.

I’m not going to attempt to provide advanced economic modeling to demonstrate my point that we need both a taller roof and increased tax base to provide cover for our now-fragile economy. That is beyond my limited mental capacities. But I will give you my two-minute evaluation. Here goes.

The entire world economy was attacked from within when greedy banks and investment firms ignored classic lending rules. Financial markets threw their lending rule books into the shit can and made loans to anyone/anything smart enough to file an application. Seeking obscene profits from not credit worthy borrowers provided instant fees and above prime rate returns.

What those silly assholes failed to do was create a viable exit plan just in fucking case things went south with the loans. So they then created new kinds of financing—what the genius boys over to Wall Street like to call “Derivatives.”

Surprise, surprise, Gomer Pile, but Derivatives turned out to be another Ponzi scheme that collapsed because it had to. All Ponzi schemes collapse, and when this one did, it took all of us with it. The most important negative aspect of this collapse was that it killed-off existing jobs and impeded new job development.

NEWS ALERT TO CONGRESS…. It’s jobs, you dumb fucks. Jobs are the answer to economic recovery. Productive jobs with solid pay.

But you can’t create jobs by cutting spending. Go to Sherry’s Raindrops Make Things Beautiful 2 by clicking http://www.luckyfrogs.blogspot.com/ where she makes as cogent a case on this as I have seen. Remember the old adage “It takes money to make money?” That is what we are speaking of here. It will require investment (read spending) to create new jobs.

For some silly reason I think that Congress will solve this problem without putting us into default. Call my stupid, but I think they will solve this with last-minute “heroics.” They’ll be patting themselves on the back, blaming the other for the mess and taking full credit for the solution.

To voluntarily place America into default is unconscionable. That is exactly the same thing as when billionaires like Donald Trump put assets into bankruptcy so that they can take advantage of a situation and burn whomever gets burned.

Donald-fucking-Trump has never cared if he profits at the expense of others. “It’s just business,” he has said time, and time again. “It’s just business.”

Hey, fuckballs, listen up. This debt ceiling is not just business. This is our lives. Stop pandering to your contributors and do the RIGHT thing.

Ugh. This shit is almost enough to kill my enthusiasm for my new product line over to Mooner Johnson’s Store. Click on the Mooner Merchandise button over on the right—it’s the first entry on the Blog Roller. Brandon from My Own Private Idaho created a ton of neat stuff with the FUCK RICK PERRY thematic materials. Also check out Brandon’s classy website at http://www.lostinidaho.me/ .

Caps and shirts and stickers and totes, and shit. Great designs and fair prices. Phase One of Mooner Johnson’s Fuck Rick Perry To The Tenth Degree Tour wass the creation of this merchandise concept. Phase Two is getting them on sale here.

Phase Three is getting other bloggers to brand Fuck Rick Perry with their logos and stuff, and put it up for sale. I’m going to collect every blogger’s stuff. It will have just as good an investment potential as my stock portfolio.

Write your congressmen and tell them to compromise and get America going again. And drink Carta Blanca beer. Manana, y’all.

    …and shit? I don’t remember seeing that as an option.

    If I can put a Fuck Rick Perry logo on a steaming pile of shit, and send it to Washington… imagine the looks on the faces of congress!

    Maybe a toothpick with a little “FRP” flag on it? What do you think would be the best way to do that??

    Brandon. I love the toothpick idea. You could use them everywhere. Sign me up! And thanks one more time.

    BTW. Aren’t you up early after working so late last night?

    Bumper Sticker purchased, will go on the back of the car as soon as it arrives. The general mentality around Phoenix should make for some interesting looks on the freeway

    Thanks Chris. I just ordered totes and shirts and hats for the entire Johnson clan.

    don’t you just love capitalizm and freedom of speeches here in Amurka? Well done, Brandon! You’ve taken Mooner’s brainchild of a slogan and turned it into a message-sending, money-making, job-creating thing. I’m starting to tear up… God bless America!

    USA! USA! USA!

    Fuck Rick Perry!

    Squat. You crack me up. BTW, I can’t get Montana Wildhack out of my mind. I have been calling around town to find a copy of the movie. No deal.

    FUCK RICK PERRY and bless Kurt V.

    I’m on the hunt for toothpick flags. If you could logo those up, imagine the possibilities…

    Have some fun at the local diner with “Fuck Rick Perry” BLT’s??

    I’m glad I was able to do my part in such a worthy cause. You’ll be happy to know when I’m cruising the internet and see a Cafepress ad, the monochrome FRP hat is always featured. Woo!!!
