Scrooge had a very small fire, but the clerk’s fire was so very much smaller that it looked like one coal. But he couldn’t replenish it, for Scrooge kept the coal-box in his own room; and so surely as the clerk came in with the shovel, the master predicted that it would be necessary for them to part. Wherefore the clerk put on his white comforter, and tried to warm himself at the candle; in which effort, not being a man of a strong imagination, he failed. — Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

The president hasn’t stopped in his tireless efforts to make living in America more and more expensive. There are too many hungry cronies to feed, which takes precedence even when he knows it doesn’t do a damned thing for the economy.

This chart will soon be outdated:

Again I ask the president’s voters, just where do you think the growth will come from?
