Left, Right & Center

The politicians keeping on doing nothing to help regular people during this “Great Recession”, but workers at Mott’s have successfully taken matters into their own hands by going on strike against pay-cuts and winning.

Not sure who the “fat lady” is in the former post. I’ll be generous and assume it refers to BP, the Military-Industrial complex, Wall Street and the relatively unchallenged perpetuity of a thoroughly corrupt and ossified two-party system in America.

There are few things that get a worker angrier then seeing their take home pay
reduced by taxes. What gets a taxpayer even angrier is watching a fat lady at the
checkout getting two cartloads of food for free with a benefit card. The ultimate in
anger is having that unwed fat lady as a neighbor in a rent free apartment with six
drug addicted children. Taxpayers have to cool it and take the good with the bad,
the good is that their taxes are helping the less fortunate survive, the bad is that
they have to move in with the fat lady.
