Buy Me a Beer

Here's where I shamelessly beg for patronage. If you like what I'm doing, I dunno, maybe buy me a beer? I need your shares and tweets too! Thanks for reading.


The debate over public sector unions and their "underfunded pension liabilities" has consistently failed to mention key information regarding the causes of the pension fund problems. Try to remember that it's almost entirely due to the scams surrounding the financial collapse of 2008. Wall street stole from us all, now the media machine and big business want to kick us while we're down.

After a global corporation posts record profits, it asks the state that has long nurtured its growth for the nation’s biggest single tax break, and then tells the people who make its products that their pension plan will be frozen, their benefits slashed, their pay raises meager. Take it or we leave. And everyone caves.
