If this doesn’t win a Pulitzer I will take to the streets. (Even if it does turn out to be Photoshopped)
How is the economy affecting you?
I’m not spending that much money this year (no trips, no endangered condor egg omelets) as I normally would. My TIAA-CREF statements are quite a bit lower so I probably won’t be retiring by the time I’m 35 as I expected. And my stock options are so low that I think I actually owe money to the NASDAQ.
And the usual fears of rising expenses, layoffs, and gigantic hairy centipedes are always on my mind.
Someone from the YouTube comments (really!) said it best:
This is like watching a David Lynch movie.
A low interest rate for a short term T-Bill indicates that business are just putting their money in the biggest mattress in the world (The US Government). The interest rate is currently at 0.005.… Yikes.
Our inspired books constitute what we call the “Bible.” The
man who reads this inspired book, looking for contradictions,
mistakes and interpolations, imperils the salvation of his soul.
While he reads he has no right to think, no right to reason. To
believe is his only duty.
