Who Are We? Who Are You?
Chase Manhatten Bank puts out what they call a Monday Motivational Tweet. It says this:
“You: why is my balance so low.
Bank account: make coffee at home.
Bank account: eat the food that’s already in the fridge.
Bank account: you don’t need a cab, it’s only three blocks.
You: guess we’ll never know.
Bank account: seriously?
So what’s your reaction to that?
To me it was, “that’s some sound counsel”. If you thought so too, you may not be a Democrat. The bank was forced to pull it down and promise to do better in the future. Why? Here’s some reactions from Democrats:
@Chase: why aren’t customers saving money?
Taxpayers: we lost our jobs/homes/savings but gave you a $25b bailout. Workers: employers don’t pay living wages.
Economists: rising costs + stagnant wages = 0 savings.
Chase: guess we’ll never know.
Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.)
“Hey @Chase, try paying your workers more. Families aren’t spending frivolously; they’re trying to pay rent,” Porter wrote.
So right there is the issue we have been talking about for awhile here now. Are you responsible for your own life, saving and future or are you supposed to do whatever you want and the government takes care of you?
Chase pulled the tweet and even said it would work “to get better at #MondayMotivation tweets.”
Get better? Maybe people who disagree should get back to being American and understand they control their own lives.
Speaking of Democrats
As of this morning sixteen candidates have qualified for the Democratic primary debates. The only announced candidates who haven’t are:
Wayne Messam, Seth Moulton, Eric Swalwell and Marianne Williamson.
It’s going to be a crowded stage.
PETE BUTTIGIEG dined at Sylvia’s in Harlem on Monday with Rev. Al Sharpton — a campaign ritual for Democratic presidential aspirants.
Imagine Al Sharpton, who produced the Twana Brawley hoax, called the innocent police involved racists, and owes the federal government for non payment of taxes is an honored figure in the party.
