…and they were right!
Via Bloomberg, with a hat tip to Breitbart, women in the Obama economy are doing so well that they are selling their hair, breast milk, eggs, and even kidneys. Sources indicate that women are applying to donate eggs more frequently in Obama’s second term than at the end of his first term; applications at one Virginia fertility clinic are up 13%.
In all but two quarters since the start of 2011, the top autofill queries in google for “I want to sell my” have been “hair” “eggs” and “kidneys.” Look, kids, hair will grow back, but kidneys do not. Also, those who are looking to sell their body parts, as opposed to their possessions, must not have any possessions left that can be sold. As Nicholas Colas, a chief market strategist, explained, “The fact that people even explore it indicates that there are still a lot of people worried about their financial outlook. This is very much unlike every other recovery that we’ve had. It’s going to be a slow-grinding, very frustrating recovery.”
Conservatives opposed the bailout, stimulus, extended unemployment benefits, and ObamaCare not because we hate people, but because we didn’t want twenty-first century American women turning into Fantine, selling their front teeth for a Napoleon.
