    History is full of poor people. And full of assholes blaming the poor. I already linked for who the moochers were. Still waiting for you to address it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    and we have a winner
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    the rich don't miss the money?..what the hell?

    the real assholes are those who pretend to care about the poor in order to gain wealth and power by pandering to them. like half the dems in office

    many lefties extrapolate their own environment onto the rich. For example, if they have expenses of 50K a year and make 51K they think if they made 200K the would have 149K to spend on other stuff

    they never understand that many "rich people are often spending 145K and have not much more left over than the lefties. I remember a couple years ago noting many "wealthy" people I know have heavy tuition bills and a 20-40K tax bill would mean pulling one or more kid out of private colleges and one of the parasites said that was "fair" since the parasite could not afford to send his kid to say Brown or Amherst

    Well, pandering is common in Washington with both parties. However, the poor really don't have a lobbying group, and aren't really a strong voting block. Mostly it's just one more way some try to excuse they're losing.

    The real assholes are those that don't acknowledge that as the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. That is what has been happening since the year 2000, and they want even more as the posters here make obvious as they attempt to demonize the poor. That'd be the poor. Lots of them ain't working.
