You know who the grasshoppers are. They're the ones who've fucked up this economy!
They're the ones who've said:
"Oh, dahling, yes, I'm planning on remodeling everything!"
Even though it's fine, and doesn't need remodeling.
They've been borrowing against their equity. Now their house value has gone down and they're "upside down" in the market. They owe more than their house is worth.
No one should have given them any money...
More grasshopper talk:
"Oh, dahling, do you like this Blah-blah-blah designer underwear? Oh, that's right, you wouldn't POSSIBLY know...honey, Banana Republic is NOT designer. Ha. Ha. Ha. You kill me with your limited fashion knowledge!"
"Aren't you going to the FUSHIA party? No? Why, I'm meeting ALL my drug dealer friends there! You should go. REALLY. It'll be good for you. Why don't you stop by my Federalist-Victorian house with matching Queen Anne surround-sound-o-vision TV? Honey, see how the good half lives!"
They did it all on credit. They're over-extended.
Now, the grasshopper's gig is up.
Meanwhile, the ants are the working girls of life.
We may not be fabulous.....or pretty....
We have long been IGNORED by the grasshoppers...
But, the working ants - and in some cases - AUNTS -
...have squirreled away our money, knowing that we could never rely on any MAN to take care of us! (Especially those flaky artsy-fartsy types!)
We didn't over-spend. We were happy with what we had. We were frugal.
Sometimes, we took on a second job, in the evenings, just for some extra cash...
And the grasshoppers have, once again, fucked up everything; over-spending, over-indulging, trying to impress who-the-fuck knows?
But ants have CASH.
And now is the ant's turn!
BUY stocks! BUY bonds! BUY foreclosed houses! There are TONS of deals everywhere!
It's the ant's turn to save this economy!
We can do it!
