Fox News is Still Pompously Pontificating

Dodo Bird

The Dodo bird is an extinct flightless bird. The closest living relative of the Dodo is a Pigeon. The Dodo had variously been declared a small ostrich, a rail, an albatross, or a vulture by 19th century scientists. The Dodo achieved widespread recognition from its role in the story of Alice in Wonderland, and it has since become a fixture in popular culture, often as a symbol of extinction and obsolescence.

Am I the only one, or do you also get frustrated when you have to listen to those people on Fox News (and their rabid followers) dishing out all their wise and sage advice?

"If I were them, I'd get a job...I'd get two jobs if I needed to, or even three jobs, if that's what it takes."

Evidently, those people must have just awoken in their dark, dank and dreary caves after a very long time in hibernation --- and they must all think that jobs are growing wild on the trees these days. They must have been very deeply asleep, all throughout the Great Recession, and during its long 4-year aftermath. What else could it be?

Those people on Fox News (and their rabid followers) just don't get it --- they don't seem realize that there is only one job opening for every 6 people who are out of work --- but who very much want a job.

But yet, incredibly, these moronic, simple-minded, stupid, arrogant and idiotic people just keep chanting their same old tired mantra --- like empty-headed bird brains --- as though they truly believe that what they've been endlessly dispensing is some kind of God-like wisdom to us lesser beings --- as though their infinite knowledge is so awe-inspiring, that only their wisdom alone will save the planet.

"SQUAWK!! Get a job...SQUAWK!! Get a job...Get a job...SQUAWK!!...I got bootstraps!...SQUAWK!!...Get a job..."


"In 223 years, the average real GDP growth for the USA has been 3.8%. At 1.9%, the 2000-2010 decade was the 2nd worst decade for real GDP growth in the storied history of the United States. The worst was the 1930s."

Economic Populist:

"If one takes the official broader definition of unemployment, or U-6, the ratio becomes 6 unemployed people per each job opening."

  1. Wolf Blitzer: Senator John McCain calling some of his Republican colleagues, I'm quoting now, "wacko birds".

    Jon Stewart: "You don't get to complain!! McCain, you don't get to complain at all. Because if I remember correctly, no matter how cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs you think your wacko bird colleagues are, they don't come anywhere close to your hatchling."
