Gordon Gekko for President!

I never cease to be amazed by the new manifestations of corporate greed that seem to spring up daily, like weeds, every place I look. For example, last Thursday, my billionaire (and criminal**) landlord fired the only honest, effective super we’ve ever had in this building, and rehired the most abusive (and lazy) super we’ve ever had (whom they previously had fired for incompetence). Now I have no heat, and probably never will again.

Meanwhile I work as a contractor, which means I have zero rights. This was brought home to me the other day by the insurance company of CodaStaffing, who gave me this job (and who take a large chunk of my paltry paycheck weekly). Their insurance company actually told me that I am “too old” to insure. Are their actuarial tables from 1836? And what about the genes I inherited from my mom that give me the constitution of a 50-year-old?

And speaking of “Constitution,” when did that expire? So many questions . . .


“Greed is good!”
