The Community Card Review – XlX

The New York Times – the American Soviet Pravda newspaper – praised Obamacare as the greatest legislation to right inequality since inequality began rising more than three decades ago.

The definition of Inequality for liberals is anytime the economy is doing well. Three decades ago (30 years for those of you in Ann Arbor) would be back when Ronald Reagan was president, and the United States started its rise to record prosperity.

Last year, fat bonuses were handed out to the liberal executives at the New York Times. The Chairman and President received over $10 million in bonuses and stock options.

That has liberal journalists in Boston ready to form their own Tea Party! While the liberal executives lined their pockets, The Boston Globe workers were taking massive pay cuts or face the closure of their newspaper.

So the Boston Newspaper Guild published a letter in response to this inequality:

“During the year in which you were so richly rewarded, we gave back $10 million in benefits to save our newspaper from the closing you threatened. Now that the Times has shown it can afford to lavish bonuses on two top executives, we expect our pay and benefits to be returned to us.”

Don’t hold your breath Boston. Anyone find it odd that the amount taken from the Boston workers almost matches what Pinch Schultzberger and Janet Robinson got as bonuses?

It is hypocritical that Pinch and Janet write editorials denouncing executive bonuses at the expense of workers – while doing the exact same thing to their own workers.

But they are liberals. Being a hypocrite is in the liberal DNA. They just can’t help it.
