Don’t worry, faceless industrial-production facilitators! Your output will be duly leveraged when the time comes! Never fear! Steven Mnuchin will not be forced to empty the contents of his safe deposit boxes to pay for his wife’s spider monkey placenta face creams.

TRUMP ECONOMIC ADVISER KEVIN HASSETT: “Our capital stock hasn’t been destroyed. Our human capital stock is ready to get back to work, and so there are lots of reasons to believe that we can get going way faster than we have in previous crises.”

Does he mean … people?

These kinds of … people?

And I, for one, welcome our new Trumpian overlords. I’d like to remind them as a trusted blogger, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

“Human Capital Stock”. I have the mental image of livestock moving through the pens slowly, one following another, until they reach the kill floor of the plant, which is what I fear will happen will our low income workers are forced to return to their unsafe jobs to risk their deaths for low wage no benefit jobs, with their wealthy overseers that don’t even know their names, or care.

That’s a very strange way to describe people, it comes across as uncaring and even unfeeling, he is certainly not doing himself any favours when he describes people in this manner.

Well, some people who like to refer to the United States of America as Muh-rica, maybe Kevin “Cattle” Hassett is one of those people.

Human Capital Stock. This is how this President and the GOP look at working people. This statement is somewhat racist as well. Not surprising.

The difference between haves and have nots; one group owns the stock; the other group is the stock. Sound vaguely familiar?
