I wanted to comment on the fact that the BLS released the wage data for 2010 and they showed that, as has been true for the past ten years, median worker wages fell. But I have a headache, and we already know that here in Griftopia, the grifters who create nothing get the big bucks and those of us who create -- who design and build and grow the food and fix the cars and so forth -- get the shaft. Reminds me of someone who said "Goldman Sachs games the rules." Uhm, no. Goldman Sachs *writes* the rules, thanks to their influence in Congress -- rules which allow the grifter class, i.e. them, to siphon off the wealth of those of us who build and create, while themselves creating nothing (remember, wealth isn't money, wealth is STUFF, the stuff you BUY with money -- money in and of itself is just toilet paper with pictures of dead people on it, worthless in the absence of stuff only for wiping your butt and lighting fires).

So anyhow I was going to write a long article about that but my head hurts, so I'm going to bed. G'nite, y'all.
