Show me the money

This is a guest post from The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome.

Labor Day was a few days ago here in the US. But why bother to celebrateworkers' efforts to earn a living?  True that it has become easier, compared to 200 years ago, to earn a living here in the US.  Instead, let's celebrate, "Increase My Earning Power Day"
Yesterday morning,  the very next day after Labor Day,  I saw an expensive car while driving to work.  It was a Mercedes Benz.  I have also seen BMW, Maserati, Bentley, even a rare Rolls Royce.  Each time I think, "Man, sure is a lot of money."  I realize, once again, that there is a lot of money sloshing around in this country.  A lot more money than we realize.  I hear GDP numbers, huge corporate profits, immense government debt, using words like billions and trillions and these numbers are just so meaningless to me. Simply too large for me to comprehend.   I am stuck in the under one hundred million dollar category.
