In light of Obama the Messiah, the Enlightened One, the Dear Leader, the Dow Jones continues to fall to new depths while the unemployment rate soars to new heights. The Dow is down to 6,571 and the unemployment rate up to 8.1%.
The wise and enlightened young people on college campuses everywhere voted for Obama-Yer-Mama because (1) he was young and had a nice smile, (2) he was a very trendy mocha color, (3) he vowed to suspend the laws of nature by punishing producers and rewarding lazy people, (4) he had really neat bumper-sticker slogans like "hope" and "change" which beat actual knowledge, experience and substance any day of the week, and (5) just because.
So now Commissar Obama is busily shooting the Kulaks for resisting the Revolution by actually producing things, and the economy gets steadily worse. Who would have guessed?
Don't complain, however. In order to remake the United States into the next collectivist basket case, unpleasant radical actions must be taken. Or, as Lenin once put it, "If you want to make an omelette you have to break some eggs."
Guess what? We're the eggs.
