Greenstone, who was chief economist at the White House Council of
Economic Advisers in 2009 and 2010, says the shift to a downwardly
mobile society may be lasting. 'Children are not earning as much as
their parents, and I think we’re laying the seeds for that to continue
into the future,' he says." In "American Dream Fades for Generation Y
Professionals" by Elliot Blair Smith, Bloomberg, 21 December 2012
There are dreams which like eagles soar, like windjammers, builders and
much more. There are nightmares in which loss takes place, and
these now seem the more likely case as an economist notes there is a
shift to nightmares as the dreams get stiffed.
Who's laid those seeds for the future then? That economist said
"we," the government when downwardly mobile is a sweet, dulled
phrase implying a sort of slow malaise. But for the ones who
downward slide, there's nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The
economist spoke of a future day when less for more will be on display.
Perhaps the wisdom of these fools will see that government has not the
tools for growth towards an upwardly mobile life, but only for warfare
and debt-fed strife. Who has more and who has less becomes the
rules of this form of chess where to take away from those who have is
proffered as a sort of saving salve in which the less will more yet get
as legal pilfering is real, not threat.
And so dreams which like eagles soar turn into nightmares, painful,
sore. Children are not earning what parents got? Such
he says is their future lot. And as dreams fade, which the title
states, each downwardly mobile suffocates.
At least we know government pays itself, and thinks it not some sort of
pelf, but when an economist makes the case for fading dreams and a
losing race, we find that all the working folk are slowly, slowly going
broke, while fat cats of the governing class grow brazen, greedy, hard
and crass. Downward go the mobile masses while government grows its
governing classes. This is how great dreams all fade as some nightmares
are by government made.
Downwardly mobile is a turn of phrase to obfuscate loss which comes and
stays. Chief economist? Oh so smart? What was then his
largest part in this shift to watching dreams fall down in the fattened
city named Washington town? Laying the seeds? They're
planted then. And of the harvest? Coming when?
Government fumbles, blathers, talks. Then governments blames and
away it walks. Haughty are such men of power, insulated in their
government tower. Downwardly mobile for many these days, as
government postures and yet betrays the dreams which can like eagles
soar, if it were not for government -- the helpful whore.
