Wow is this country going down the toilet fast! Everywhere you look, its all about kissing the azz of losers, lazy people, people who make bad life choices.
NOWHERE is it ever about the producers, the people who work, live responsibly, and hand half their earnings over to the government...... sad times.

I look at drudge and fast food workers are demanding $15/hr. Thats 30k a year! Are you fuking kidding me? How totally ridiculous is that?

There has been a major shift in our culture in the last maybe 10 years. Rich people and successful companies are now seen by the ignorant majority as 'evil'.

Soon hard work will be perceived as not being worth the trouble.

Look at the cities and states where this collective ignorance has prevailed: Detroit, Baltimore, etc. And the thing about liberalism is once it takes hold, it perpetuates itself.

And the thing is, if Newton had never gotten caught, arrested and convicted, he wouldn't be spouting off at ALL about "better treatment" for ANYfreakinbody.

you would think the lesson of GETTING CAUGHT would be enough to straighten a person out.
mr newton has no credability, saying one thing to the community and ripping them off at the same time.

Ernie Newton/bribery: reelected.
Marion Barry/Drug user: reelected.
Jesse Jackson Jr./metal breakdown: reelected.
Charlie Rangel/tax evasion/lying under oath: reelected.
Bill Johnson/stroke: reelected.

How many years before democrats re-elect a pedophile?
Oh wait, that already happened -Mel Sauders

We have now left the realm of logic in this country, and we've entered the realm of stupidity. I'm sure it will go well.

Why? Its going to get worse in the future. When liberals ruin a place, they invariably think the solution is more liberalism.

Its a mental disorder- but like rabies or pancreatic cancer, it almost always gets worse.

Non-working Obama voters asking for more benefits and higher taxes: thats like people in a lifeboat. The as sholes who don't help row are sitting on their fat as ses demanding that the rowers row faster. It's sickening that we as a collective people really are so stupid as to let it come to this.

Watch, they will start giving them jobs with the state. "Just do as you are told" will be their new union. Sit behind a desk and lie is already a full time job with the state.

Good observations. It's true, things have changed and not for the better.
