Monster Careers
Too bad there is probably now way to save a disasterous resume after it has been sent--After all, my older son happened to caught a job opening at our local bank, which I confessed hurried a bit too fast to apply for, then realized only afterward that I forgot to include some information on my current job--like the address.  Leave it to me to make that kind of boneheaded mistake; which reminds me I also have reading to catch up on.

   Dear Reader, I am passing on this e-mail, because despite the fact that many us are looking for job and/or know someone who is--We should not have to sell our souls and/or our environment just to feed our families. What employers need to do IS TO WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE--THE MORE THE FEW EMPLOYERS USE AND ABUSE EMPLOYEES=THE MORE EMPLOYERS ARE REALLY DECLARING CLASS-WARFARE.
 As I mentioned on MSNBC last night, today marks 11 years since the Bush tax breaks for the rich were enacted. President George W. Bush signed the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act on June 7, 2001.

Bush claimed (as right-wingers always do) that tax breaks for the rich would create jobs in the private sector. Well, they haven't. There were 110 million private sector jobs in America in 2001. There are 110 million private sector jobs in America today. Despite a population increase of more than 25 million, there are no more private sector jobs today than when the Bush tax breaks for the rich became law.

In the past 11 years, the number of Americans living in poverty has increased from 33 million to 44 million. The number of Americans receiving food stamps has risen from 18 million to 46 million. "Trickle-down" has not even been a trickle.

But what could we expect? We didn't give tax breaks to the poor; we gave tax breaks to the rich. And for the rich, the past 11 years has been one long party. According to the Paris School of Economics, the top 1% in America saw their share of national income increase by more than 13% from 2001 to 2010. The top 0.1% saw their share of income increase by 20%. The top 0.01% saw their share of income explode by more than 37%, from 2.4% of all of the income in America to 3.3%.

The Bush tax breaks for the rich have yielded the most unequal distribution of wealth in American history, more unequal even than that of 1929, just before the Great Depression.

The lurch toward inequality started decades ago; the Bush tax breaks for the rich only accelerated it. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, since 1979, income for the top 1% has increased by $700,000 a year, while income for the bottom 90% has declined by $900 a year. Between 1992 and 2007, income for the richest 400 Americans increased by 392%, as their taxes dropped by 37%.

You see where this is going. The end-game of the Bush tax breaks for the rich is the end of the middle class in America. No jobs, no healthcare, no pensions, no home equity, no higher
education. The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.

The Bush tax breaks are due to expire in a few months. We are at a fork in the road.

No more tax breaks for the rich. No. No. No. No.

Poor Being Fracked in Pennsylvania

Residents of the Riverdale Mobile Homes Park in rural Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, are being evicted and offered little compensation to make way for a fracking operation.
Poor Being Fracked in Pennsylvania (Video)The residents are poor and include children and the elderly and alternative accommodation locally is hard to come by, as a wave of workers imported for the fracking has driven up rents.
A company owned by the former head of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources got the land re-zoned, possibly illegally, as industrial and wants to build a pumping station to withdraw up to 3 million gallons of water per day from the Susquehanna River. . . . .
