That is the truth. That is the REAL basis of non-wealthy support for the Republican party.
You can throw facts and logic at them all day long and it's like water off a duck. They just think that they're having to give money to somebody who is lazy. Screw the facts and logic and being educated.
Of course the WEALTHY right-wing nut-jobs do everything they possibly can to promote this thinking, including funding and constructing the largest propaganda machine in the history of mankind. Why do they do this? They need votes for people willing to help them exploit more people for the sake of their wealth. They know they can't get those votes based on logic, so they get them based on emotion from stupid people. And the stupider you keep the people, the better life gets for big-oil and Wall Street.
So there you have it. That is what's going on.
You are incredibly drunk. Obama drunk. Your post made me laugh. You brainwashed libs shouldn't even be allowed outside your padded cells. Your double standard is just the funniest thing EVER.

Chickenbutt, there is no hope for you.You actually sit around and think you know what everyone is thinking. You are a mind reader. Your dislike of people that have worked hard and have some money really shows. Actually you are a narcissist and an arrogant one at that. You look at things as if it is always the well to do peoples fault. Those damn conservatives are just so stupid is what you think. Not all conservatives are rich or well off. They just believe in Freedom and the pursuit of happiness. They believe in right and wrong and have ethics. Most conservatives have common sense. You don't. Perhaps if you were one of them you would see things differently. But you never will. You are a true socialist and pretty much anti-American. You don't fool me for a moment.
Daaaaang. Chickenbutt sounds just like....wait for it.....wait for it.....OBAMA!!!! Hilarious.

Great post.

Isn't is amazing to watch how hard the very people who benefit most from those "socialist" programs, who slurp up those benefits faster than anyone else, are the same people who claim to be so "anti-socialist" ?

Isn't it amazing to watch the very people whose kids die in the Right Wing's stupid wars, and who have seen their incomes plummet - while the 1% has seen their incomes explode, are so vehement in the ludicrous claims we should all suffer more so the 1% become even richer ?

Isn't is amazing to see how regardless of drowning in facts that demonstrate they have become the "birches" of the Right Wing's 1%, instead of fighting back, like Richard Speck, they just grow their hair, put on makeup, and pretend they enjoy their subservient role ?

How else can you explain their desire to bring back a Bush clone after his almost complete destruction of our country's economy, infrastructure, and foreign relations, and military ?

That's what makes them entertaining

This whole Obama debacle is nothing more than a social experiment. Having a black guy as president was supposed to cure a lot of ills. It really hasn't worked except that we can say we've had a black president. McCain/Palin was a joke, imo. Romney, not much better. One can only speculate what a presidency with any of those people would have been. No one knows definitively. They lost. But, what we have now is completing the road to ruin.
Of course I keep bringing up the vacations. The Obamas have been riding HIGH on tax payers money from the very beginning. They didn't let the poor economy stand in their way. They have been "in our faces" with it. You can defend it all you want, but they are in YOUR face, too. Exactly WHAT has Obama actually DONE for the middle class? Just because he SAYS he is for the middle class doesn't mean ONE THING. Don't listen to what he says. Look at what he does.
BTW, how many separate vacations did Laura take in comparison to Michelle? Compare the Bush rounds of golf to the Obama rounds of golf.(Just to remind you....Bush is no longer president.)
He has stopped the Repugs in Congress from adding another huge tax increase on the middle class, pushing the larger increases on the very rich. He is trying to hold off the Repugs push on Social Security allowing old people to keep theirs and cutting it drastically on the young folks NOW funding the system! Proving to me that the Repugs donít give a damn about the people, just the elections. He also got a law passed a forcing the middle class to do the only thing that could be done to save money on health care, make everyone pay for their on health care. Nobody that watches FNC would know this, but we are becoming a big player in the world wide quest for OIL. Something that didn't happen under the oil manís rule, he was too busy trying to nationalize other countries oil by invading them under false pretense. He kept Palin for having any chance of being President, just imagine a person with NO knowledge past the state of Alaska talking to Putin!! Troops are FINALLY coming home from the Bush wars that were a waste and a drain on this country that we may NEVER recover from.
Neither Laura or Michelle are on the payroll.

Do you have a job, are you in the lower or middle class? If so, you should have already seen that your take home pay got reduced when Obama ended the Bush tax cuts for working people. So the only thing Obama has done for the middle class is increase their taxes. Oh, and let's keep up the fiction that the "rich" don't pay their fair share. Let's just ignore that the top 1% pay 37% of the taxes, the top 5% pay 59% and the top 10% pay 70%. Annoying little facts. And the only thing Obamacare will do is destroy what has been the best (not perfect) healthcare system in the world - rationing of care, here we come.
"Big player in the world wide quest for oil" - Sure, if you mean that he allows other countries to drill off our shores while NOT allowing American companies to do the same - more jobs down the drain. His 2013 budget proposal includes $45 BILLION in tax and fee increases on domestic energy production -
yeah, that's a great way to incentivize energy producers to create jobs.
Lastly, da-n right Michelle is not on the payroll - I just wish she would quit acting like she was.

Excuse me, lay off! May I ask what planet you are from? Number 1: I have people in my family that are considered middle class, and 300 dollars more in taxes are being taken out of their paychecks now. Thanks to Obama! Number 2: Where do you get off saying that our military is coming home? are you in the military? Do you have family members in the military? Well I assure you, they are not coming home. I know first hand. I'm not having to listen to MSNBC or any other news channel. Thank you!

1. Stopped tax increase for the middle class? http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/0107...

2. How much money did Obama take from Social Security to fund his "other" project. Does $2.6 TRILLION sound familiar? Probably not.

3. He ADDED to our debt instead of cutting it in half during his first term(as he promised) and YOU are WORRIED about our young people?????????? Whom do YOU think is going to be paying for the debt?

4. He is going to save us money on healthcare? Umm....are you SURE about that? Perhaps you need to do a little research. Obamacare needs funding. Where will that come from? The rich? lol

5. Those who get their news from TV will never get the truth. Those who get their news specifically from MSNBC(YOU) will never know the truth.(You libs really MUST get over FOX NEWS. You have all the other news stations. That's why you libs are so uninformed.)

6. Instead, we got a PRESIDENT who visited all 57 STATES.'nuff said.

7. Obama followed BUSH'S withdrawal plan. Actually, the soldiers stayed a little longer than ORIGINALLY planned.

8. Neither Laura(was) nor Michelle (is) on the payroll????? WHOM do YOU think is paying for the trips????????? News flash: Just because they don't get a check doesn't mean we aren't paying for it!

Good gosh! Which planet are you living on? YOU are the very definition of a low information voter.

I read somewhere that the Obamas have to pay for THEIR vacations (as have prior Presidents, along with food for their family, etc.), but we, the taxpayers, are responsible for the security, plane costs, travel costs of their entourage, etc.

I know a person here in Douglasville that is a hard-core right wing nut-job. She is mid 30's, 2 kids, divorced from a redneck idiot, low-paying job.

She talks all the talk, the "loss of freedom", how everything was perfect under Bush and everything is Obama's fault. Listens the all the right-wing BS, and all the Fox News propaganda artists. She will go on for HOURS every day of her life about the "Makers/Takers" argument. She's on food stamps and housing assistance. Somehow there's a budget though for firearms and ammo and X-box games.

It never crosses her mind that she's one of the takers. Somehow she does the mental trick of taking government subsidies but blaming everything on the "welfare for the blacks and mexicans".

I guess it's a Republican thing. Sane people wouldn't understand.
