compare and contrast

wall street had its highest level of compensation last year, 125
billion dollars. and the market is all gangbuster bullish again. BP is
scewing over everyone who needs and deserves compensation from their
disaster. and the fed thinks that raising food prices ain't no big
thing for us little people.
meanwhile, states are avoiding bankruptcy by scewing over poor people,
disabled people, people trying to educate themselves or their kids.
there's riots in puerto rico over tuition hikes that no one's talking
about. no one's even talking about foreclosures anymore, though they
are expected to keep rising.
and the politicians can't seem to get their noses brown enough in the
backsides of the crooks who really run the country.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
