'Scottsdale's financial disparity a sign of the times' shouts the headline from the Arizona Republic today. A story telling us 'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times' claptrap talking about Coronado High Schools peanut butter and jelly athletic program and Chaparral's champagne and caviar's program. Rise up and rebel workers!
'The divide between Coronado and Chaparral hasn't always been this wide' the article screams. Bad times are here. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Well, yeah, maybe. But why Arizona Republic? All your cheer leading for statism, socialism, high taxes and all that Marxist jazz maybe? Not doing your job and rooting for the big government guys, Obamacare, punishing businesses coming home to roost? Ignoring the sacred duty of a journalist to root out corruption? Well, if its among conservatives you'll root it out. But you're supposed to do it no matter whose corrupt, aren't you? How naive of me to think so.
Speaking of naive, I'll share a little secret with you.
I went to elementary school in Coronado's district in the 70's and guess what? We were lower middle class and the kids that were in Chaparral were the rich kids. Back then, forty years ago. So, things have changed, but not as much as the kill the rich morons in the declining circulation, media death spiral seeking, Obamacare loving Arizona Republic would like you to think so.
