retirement at 53? 6 weeks vacation??
i love you jon, but i kick myself when i don't fact-check... do you?
still, he's right about some things being better than they are in the u.s... that's what you get when a large part of your population is lulled and/or bribed into a deep sleep.
last but not least, i would have preferred images of a months' worth of peaceful protests (like... i don't know... mine?) than a short outbreak of violence, placed with surgical precision i might add, as is systematically projected by the media... (like... i don't know... boston.com?).
afterthought: blaming the wider population of working people -- who are being ordered to shut up and fix it -- for the failings of a credit/speculation system supported by corrupt politicians, ruthless businesses and their grand larceny and scandals, is the lazy way out.
i get these over the interwebs, and this just popped up, as they do in reverse order, somehow.
