Yes, it's wonderful that low-wage jobs are increasing by leaps and bounds, heralding the brave new world of poverty WITH employment. Becoming a nation of waitresses and bartenders is a fitting tribute to the world's only superpower. A strong dollar is equally inspiring, especially in the vast regions of the Third World where battered currencies can't purchase enough of the stronger dollars to give the people even the beginnings of a recognizably human existence. But it sure looks good on paper! Gas heading to $2 a gallon - yes! - thanks to fracking, which is so good for the environment. The "Bush" deficit cut by two-thirds - another yes! - owing to the austerity economics that just put Donald Trump in the White House.
