Have to answer my own post because it must have gone over my liberal friends head. Point is a conservative can't even mention getting a handle on a welfare state bankrupting the country because the libs will immediately make an outrageous claim, like letting the autistic fend for themselves, to make the case that the conservative is a heartless, greedy, SOB. Demonize and villify. Do the sane people in the forum really think this is what we mean?
I wonder what the libs think is going to happen when we turn into Greece?
Thanks John, it has been a very stressful week and that just made me laugh, and I really needed it.
Not like you and your NEVE EVER make stupid ridiculous exaggerations. You know, like saying that the left wants to tax the rich to being poor, or not wanting businesses to do well so that they can employ people, or not having common sense?
Conservatives come off as greedy and heartless because that is often exactly what they are saying.
Notice you want to cut welfare for the poor, food stamps and SS to handicapped individuals, as well as those that CANNOT find any job. At the same time complaining that some want to return the tax on the very rich to what it was. It isn’t so much that 80 billion or whatever it is is going to solve anything, it is that for years you conservatives harped that there had to be SHARED SACRIFICE while cutting social programs and promoting not only continuing the cuts for the ultra rich, but cutting them more. See, we don’t see the “shared sacrifice” from those that caused the mess I the first place. So, yeah it is mostly symbolic that they are going to share in the conservatives “shared sacrifice.” Why don’t you get behind your elected and push for JOBS, since they filibuster any and all of that in the last 3 years.
Why not push for livable wages so that no one NEEDS those programs? Why can’t the working people share in the profit instead of JUST the rich? Not, make them rich, as I am sure you want to rant, just LIVABLE wages.
However, all that means nothing because I have yet to see you even pretend to see anyone as “sane” unless they are in 100% agreement with you. So, clearly anthing anyone says contra to your mindset will be labeled out of touch or insane or some other nonsense.
Why are conservatives always so hot to cut to social programs and never to the huge money pit of defense. It is more than 55% of everything taken in and NEVER do you conservatives mention cutting THAT. Instead it is always that small portion of possible fraud in a small part of the federal money.
We cannot be Greece, no matter how many times you claim it.
