Ten years into the Bush tax cuts, many are wondering—why are the super rich not creating jobs with all those record corporate profits? It's a fair question.

And here's the answer. Clearly the "job creators" can't reinvest their profits in the American jobs market. The important priority is saving those profits for their generous executive bonuses. Then they can snap up the hot new item, the Jil Sander Vasari bag.

$300 Jil Sander Vasari bag.
This $300 paper bag features two gold metal eyelets at the bottom.
Borrowing the surname from a Renaissance creative, designer label Jil Sander offers a look into its latest 2012 fall/winter release with the Vasari Bag. Having presented a black leather Lunch Bag last week, the German fashion house continues with the same rectangular silhouette, however this time crafted from 100% brown coated paper. Appropriate details continue with black letter branding at the bottom of the front panel, visible stitched seams at each side, and two gold metal eyelets at the bottom. The Vasari bag is currently on sale through LN-CC for $290 USD.
You read that right. It's a brown paper bag for a bargain basement price just shy of $300.00.

Obviously, with the price of brown paper bags these days, it should go without saying that the Bush tax cuts must be made permanent this fall. How can the very rich possibly get by on a Clinton era tax rate? It's inhuman to expect people to pay more than 13 percent!

There is, of course, a very special place in hell for any human that bought a $300 paper bag. And, by the way, they sold out at this site.

It's perfect for carrying your pepper-spray, just in case you run into a dirty fucking hippie who is camped out in a public park because she has $100,000 in student loans and no job.

This item will also make a handy doggy bag after we eat the rich.

Hat tip, Gawker.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
