SOTU is over. America weeps...........

Given the fact that the S&P 500 is up over 18% since the last State of the Union address.  However, a glimpse over the shoulder of Tom Perkins and his pals and one can't help but wonder how "strong" the Union is when there are 2.845 million more people not in the labor force than a year ago. Last year's 6,990 words were strewn with "hope", "change", "jobs" and "wall street".  

President Obama unveiled 12 key executive actions in his 6,778 word tome last night at a reading level that was lower than the average of George W. Bush's SOTUs and the same as Clinton's (Flesch-Kincaid 9.8). From 'raising the minimum wage' to 'myRA' savings plans ("a guaranteed return with no risk"?) and from redesigned high schools to teach real-world skills (like EBT-card-usage?) to increasing college opportunities (blowing that bubble even bigger), it was a corporate-bashing, hopeful-job-creating manifesto that had less "hopes" and "dreams" than MLK's speech, but more "believing."
 
This is a clown circus! Obama is the center stage liar, as usual. All ears open to his non-reality, make-believe, fantasy world.
