Greetings from Calico Blackie!
We think we have a President of the United States, but all we have is a middle manager for Corporate America.
You might have done a Google search for Katy Perry and are now reading this realizing you were jobbed.
The joke’s on you!
It’s the old bait and switch!
Sadly, the joke’s on all of us.
We’re all getting jobbed.
As I said in my last column, we’re being treated to a bogus and rigged horse race. Romney did good in the debate (or, so the media says) and he’s inching up in the polls.
Never mind that nothing really substantial was debated.
Never mind that the moderator sucked.
Never mind that we were treated to a meaningless spectacle and yet everyone is still talking about it while the world goes to hell around us.
It’s all just like pro wrestling.
We think we have a President, when in reality, all we have is a Wall Street puppet sitting in the Oval Office.
It’s like the old bait and switch!
It doesn’t matter who gets elected.
Wall Street will still win.
Speaking of fake entertainment….
Have you seen this?
Unemployment rate falls to 7.8% as economy creates 114,000 jobs
“The nation’s unemployment rate dropped to the lowest it has been in almost four years in September, giving President Barack Obama a potential upbeat talking point as the presidential race heads into the final innings.”
“The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent in September, a decline of 0.3 percentage point and the lowest since January 2009. The government said the economy created 114,000 jobs, about as expected, and generated 86,000 more jobs in July and August than first estimated.”

It’s cooked statistics.
Anyone with eyes and a brain can see that things are not getting better and are, in fact, getting worse.
But the Obama camp will point to it as an indicator that their man is doing a fine job.
They will believe it because they want to believe it.
Just like the Romney camp will conveniently ignore the fact that their man is just a pawn that will say anything to get elected.
Meanwhile, the stock market is up! Good for Obama! Feel the trickle down yet? Or, have the rich gotten richer while we’ve gotten poorer?
Screw them all. We’ve got to get them to stop lying to us.
We’ve got to stop this shit.
OCCUPY WALL STREET
