Thanks, Fox, for reminding me how much you suck

Why Americans are Miserable and Broke

Want to know why the gap between the haves and the have-nots keeps growing? Because the haves live within their means. They don’t waste their hard-earned money on all the crap that Americans spend billions, maybe even trillions, on each year.  

American consumers seem to have an almost insatiable appetite for just about any type of useless garbage that anyone decides to make in China for a few bucks and sell here for a few hundred. Which is probably why nobody has any savings and everyone complains they don’t have enough money to live on.


I was a little surprised by this.  I'd have thought, if you wanted to convince Americans of the validity of conservative views, you might point out how their lives could be better in a more conservative policy framework.  They used to be pretty good at that, convincing America that deregulation and NAFTA would "make everyone better off."  But then I remembered Republicans like income inequality.  They want to keep it.  One way to sell it is to convince people it's their own fault they're poor, and if they really want their pain to stop they're going to have to cut back on cat toys.

I'm sorry, that is really evil, man.
