Fvcking Obama destroying teh economiez.

Business executives like to portray the Obama administration as the “most anti-business” in history, creating an “increasingly hostile environment for investment and job creation.” However, the data tells a far different story. According to a Bloomberg News analysis, corporate profits have grown by 171 percent under Obama, the most in the post-war era:
U.S. corporations’ after-tax profits have grown by 171 percent under Obama, more than under any president since World War II, and are now at their highest level relative to the size of the economy since the government began keeping records in 1947, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Profits are more than twice as high as their peak during President Ronald Reagan’s administration and more than 50 percent greater than during the late-1990s Internet boom, measured by the size of the economy.
Average annual corporate profit growth under Obama is the highest since 1900, whereas profit growth declined during both Bush presidencies. As a share of the economy, corporate profits have never been higher.
Unfortunately, this profit deluge has not been shared by workers, whose wages as a percentage of the economy have fallen to all-time lows. Workers also got dinged by the recent increase in the payroll tax, which was large enough to wipe out a minimum wage increase in some states.

Takes $$ to make $$...a smart rich guy can afford to adapt his investment strategies to suit whatever the economic climate dictates at the time.

So I'm destined to be poor until I die. Sweet. I mean, I knew that but it just always sucks to see it pointed out in black and white. Manual labor with a moderately specialized skill and a college degree and I can't afford to do anything but pay my bills.

Nah, that's too hard.

A smart rich guy can afford to lobby politicians to make sure he gets a favourable tax/law/economic environment.
