3. I'd be happy with what he makes in one day of being out of work.

I could go a couple of years on that kind of money.

4. I just found out

that he makes my yearly salary in 1 day of "work." I'm depressed.

5. It is more than I made when I had a job.

And, that was a job I was in for 20 years after getting a Masters degree. That's almost as depressing as the fact that my fucking job is long gone, and no replacement is in sight, and those that are available pay $10-12/hr. with no benefits.

7. I know that it's comparatively good

if we keep the comparisons in the 99%. Yeah, I thought my Masters degree was going to admit me to the professional class--or at least the class with benefits. Naw. I've been contracting at the same place for 6 years, and they'll never hire me because I'm not a software engineer. Best of luck to you in finding something better than the $10/hr stuff. Not at lot of it out there, for sure.

But the idea that there's somebody getting more than $350 times my salary...and I should vote for him because he knows how I feel...better sign off before the language turns blue.

as an "Unemployment Check"???
