Fox News is only one!
We can not win a Santa Claus who promises to give away money from the treasury!
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury. From that moment on the majority always vote for the candidates promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury, with a result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy and is followed by a dictatorship." (Alexander Fraser Tyler)
LOL, your posts are always hilarious. It's hard to believe someone can be this whacked. Fox News is only one????? Liberal media?????? Hilarious.

Just like your comment that voters can vote themselves money from the treasury. Yup, who has gotten all that money? It's easy to see, who has tons of money? Why the rich of course. Do the poor get tons of money? Apparently not, because if they did, they wouldn't be poor.

It is hilarious that you actually believe those in dire poverty have tons of money.

Fox News is ridiculous:

Do a google search for "Fox News caught lying" and you get an extraordinary number of results. Beck & Bill "loofah" O'Reilly are the two biggest jokes on television news.

more assumptions from the whacked out? I am not a republican, nor a democrat. Never have been; never will be.

As to getting rich without working? how about almost all of the rich, who got rich simply being born into it.

You remind me of the guy who robbed a bank and thought he deserved to keep the money because of all the hard work and risk it took to rob a bank. Do you know how hard it is to hire a get away driver, and locate a car, and buy guns, and to find out when the bank has lots of cash? Then you have to hold up somewhere. It's a lot of work.

The problem is those who work hard, and smart, but never can get ahead because some rich guy has the system set up to get the fruit of all the labor while he cruises on his new boat.

Yup, and it's better to live in a society where people have a chance to advance, with hard work. Not like this Republican dream world where the rich have everything.
