Our owners love recessions. They are a great excuse to "cull the herd," pay people dirt, and treat them like shit. Recessions remind us all who really runs the show; and it ain't the voters, those fat ignorant peasants.

Plutocrats Love Recessions
Paul Krugman said yesterday that we can expect double digit unemployment rates for probably the next 3 years. The Obama stimulus package was too small, and Congress is packed with people convinced that it's 1993 and that we desperately need to trim the Federal Budget (where were they 6 years ago when we decided to drop Freedom Bombs on Iraq and give away the public Treasury to the top 1%; and when they wrote blank checks for both?). Washington probably won't budge until the official unemployment rate edges above 20% and Wal-Marts start burning in food riots.
