The 2010s: billionaires bitched, their racist bitches died off early.

What a decade for American Exceptionalism and Trickle-Down Economics, huh? 

Wez and Kid
This painting, Still Life of Motorcycle, Silicon Valley Billionaire, and Duped White Dude, is hanging in the Louvre. I’d love to go to Paris and see it.

These days, I enjoy reading articles about how the 1% is freaking out. 

Duh. 

Attention fat-cats: by cutting back on your shameless greed-mongering, your stoking of white supremacy in order to profit from it, your fascist agenda—guess what? Your intense feelings of pants-poopiness will lessen.

I 100% guarantee it. 

Let’s recap the last twelve or thirteen years, shall we? 

• Financial speculators caused the Great Recession

• The rest of the country paid the consequences and millions lost their jobs

• Financial speculators got bailed out by the taxpayers

• After getting bailed out, financial speculators didn’t use this money to hire workers 

Income inequality widened   

The country’s death rate increased

The number of black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies decreased

 The rest of the world quit trusting the United States

• More tax cuts for the rich and corporations

• Deficit ballooned

• The 1% openly advocated using Social Security and Medicare funds to pay down the deficit

• Corporations did not use the tax savings to hire more workers

• Financial regulations have been weakened

• Another tax cut has been proposed

Let’s turn this shit around in the 2020s, what do you say?
