We live in the real world, not Wall Street

Published: March 12, 2013 4:00 AM

I received a piece of fantasy mail from Virginia today, saying that Ohio "big labor" is somehow "on the march," and wants to take my money out of the public treasury, at will, no less!

It all sounded very scary until I picked up the paper and saw the truth -- that Ohio's governor is stopping the state auditor from looking at his own JobsOhio group taking my money from the public treasury.

Now this letter came from Virginia, so maybe they have some imaginary view of the Ohio labor market, and the governor has spent a lot of years out of state, so he might have forgotten this isn't D.C., and its not Wall Street,either. We all live in the real world here.

I solved one problem with a "file thirteen" of the letter. The state auditor needs to investigate to fix the governor's problem.

Yes, that is the irony of the situation. More and more Americans have chosen abject poverty as their goal, and Obama is getting rich meeting that demand.

You want to know what the real world is like. Well I will tell you. Obama was worth 1 million 300 thousand dollars in 2008. He is currently listed as one of the world wealthy (no. 41 I think) with assets over 13 million dollars. Meanwhile 47,791,996 people were on the food stamp program in the month of December 2012.
