For those in the “job market” any time over the past three years (including myself) this cartoon seems particularly apt. This morning I got a hint at the new narrative being prepared for 2011. “America is coming back! Stronger than ever!” But for the millions whose earnings potential has been permanently DESTROYED by this collapse (not to mention the loss of retirement, health insurance, home equity, life insurance policies and children’s college funds) the only thing exceptional about America is the way it takes care of its richest two percent EXCEPTIONALLY well.
