Yesterday, Hillary Clinton promised America financial salvation via thousands of new "green-collar jobs" that would banish poverty while saving the giraffes and puppies and rain forest cafes and also, be created in 90 minutes or less upon her inauguration. Today, we learn that Bill Clinton may make $20 million upon divesting from a business partnership with a billionaire modelizer who liked to fly him around in a private jet they nicknamed "Air Fuck One." Yup, it's Ron Burkle, and it's not clear what Bill ever did to earn all that money or beyond that, how beholden he is at this point to the fossil fuel-collar class of the United Arab Emirates. What we do know is that an hour in a private jet burns as much fuel as a year driving your non-hybrid car to work on your new job installing solar panels and maintaining windmills, so...yeah, "crappy" is right on point to describe our outlook for the economy today!
