World of Class Warfare - The Poor's Free Ride Is Over - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 08/18/11 -

I saw this last night and it was excellent. Fox news freaking out at Warren Buffett's call to tax the rich just a bit more, calling it class warfare, juxtaposed with Fox "pundits" calling for poor people to stop getting away with not paying any taxes (except social security/medicare/unemployment/etc). LOVE IT.

Seriously, FOX hates poor people. ["They are absolutely getting a free ride."] (And why not, theyre no use to them.) And gosh, those rich people are so injured by our complete disregard for their ability to continue paying 40K a night for a spacious and ridiculously luxurious villa at Ceasar's in Las Vegas. What is the world coming to? So those people who have a family of four making up to 22,350. per year ought to just pay up. Oh and kill NPR, that'll do it.

Fox: "...more skin in the game."

Jon: "That's the problem with poor people. They still have some of their skin."

Just think what they could do with that skin. They could tan it and sell it as lampshades to rich people.

I think I have PMS. I've been ragey lately.

Good one!

And me too. But hearing poor-people bashing always sends me into a rage.

I don't want to say that it sends me into a rage, per se. But I do really hate listening to people like my mom talk about things like how "those black people don't work" or how she "doesn't see why the natives shouldn't have to pay taxes like the rest of us". My favorite was when she told me that she didn't care if gay people taught, so long as they didn't molest their students.

-_-

She said to her bisexual daughter.

Oh, wow, people just don't think sometimes. Ouch.

{{{hugs}}}

Yes I can't stand people who don't bother to learn anything about other people's lives but think they can judge them.
