    meet the Demand Creators (appearing in this long-standing role is Mr and Ms middle class American).

    Without us Demand Creators, you have no reason to 'create' any jobs and little chance of creating sustainable profits. (You're still gorging on short termism to get the profits you've had recently.)

    By paying us less and less and by laying of more and more of us, guess what happens?

    You are killing the demand that creates not only jobs but profits.

    You've attempted to erase the most critical part of the free market equation that says "increased purchasing power enables increased demand, which can then justify increased production capacity (aka jobs and investment) which can produce the almight PROFIT.  

    Your Faux-Market equation that ran on continually decreasing costs of production, decreasing taxes,  increasing your margins and luring Americans into unsustainable household debt-to-income ratios finally hit bottom and popped like the bubble it was 3 years ago.  

    Your current profits are being mined directly out of the foundation of our economy - in essense, you're eating the seed corn that was meant for the planting of the next harvest.

    But you're still trying to pretend that whole faux-market wreckage can fly again.  

    Face it, its a dead parrot. It is no more.  

    Either go back to a real free market or try something else.  

    Someone in a very expensive suit is at the front door and says he wants to foreclose on our democracy. Where should I tell him he can put his robosigning pen?
