Today’s Lesson

The current politico-economic situation of the United States is clearly and accurately described in the following story, provided by the Show Tunes Correspondent.

A CEO, a union worker, and a Tea Party member are sitting around a table  with a dozen cookies on it. The CEO takes 11 cookies, then turns to the Tea Party member and says,"Watch out for that union guy. He wants to take some of your cookie."

Paul Krugman can’t do it any better than that.

Not only that, the Tea Party member will swear an oath of allegiance (to fight to the death) to make sure the union member doesn't get anything more than the crumbs ... because he's convinced that is the best possible scenario ... 11 cookies for the capitalist entrepreneur, 1 cookie for his best friend and crumbs for everybody else.

He'd be doing Ayn Rand proud ...
