Kickass and political money

Kickass, the doorstop dog, says the only thing dumber than money in politics is the casual attitude toward neutering dogs.  This was once again obvious when the keeper read that there are 261 millionaires in the 535-member congress, and the National minimum wage is set at $7.25 per hour, and Wisconsin is one of the states where Walker and the Repub gang are not about to raise it.

Dogs do not curse, but Kickass is applying for a variance so he can ask just  how goddamn bad does economic inequity have to get before the system is grabbed by the privates and threats of basic, meaningful alterations become more than campaign rhetoric.

The economy—with its tall-dog tax cut may be booming for the top one percent, but people working two low-paying jobs and even those with middle class incomes are trying to figure out how to pay for the kids’ school supplies, and have some left over for beer and dog treats. (Kickass, through the keeper, has spoken and further comments that such abject greed in the canine world would result in some serious ass chewing.)
