I call me and Brenda Team WUPPIE.
For willfully underemployed professional.
I guess itís not so willing lately.† Itís more
involuntary poverty.† While I was trying to be
an artist the middle class disappeared out from
under us.† The safety net was porous.† Rather,
it has been dismantled.† Bush put the quietus to
the last of
the bourgeoisie voting for him, thinking they were
capitalists, the manager/professional class, experts,
the nomenklatura, but where is your dacha now,
comrade?† Youíre out here with
the proletariat.† The real estate bubble.
The near collapse on the baking system.
The Wall Street panic.† No more flipping houses.
No more buying your shoelaces by dealing in herds of cattle.
Realpolitik caught up with you.† Do you know
what happened?† What happened?† Where did
all the wealth go?† Who got it?
Bernie Madoff?† Bush?† Cheney?
Condoleeza Rice?† G. Gordon Liddy?
