    If you read between the lines of the republican rhetoric spewed here at USMB you would conclude the following:

    Poor people are to blame for our current economic woes

    Rich people are victims worthy of our sympathy

    And if that wasn't perversely illogical enough on it's own, their solution is to make more poor people.

    I think I just answered my own question. 'Off the rails' is actually being generous.

    But whatcha gonna do? :dunno:

    How about actually reading the lines instead of between them. :eusa_whistle:

    Wow, those dang republicans. I mean if they would just listen to and follow the suggestions of the Democrats, we'd all be so much better off!

    I've been poor (literally ate the last bag of brown beans in the cupboard). I've been pretty well off (I wouldn't say rich). But here's the bottom line. You don't make one group better by STEALING from another group. If you are poor, you go out and you WORK to make yourself better. If you gave 100 welfare recepients one million dollars each (I don't care what ethnic group they were), only about 10 of them would have ANY money at the end of a year. So what then? You going to give them another million?

    You cannot give people something and make them successful. If you believe that... wow.

    Like Obama is talking all about reality right

    "pass this bill ... If you love me, pass this bill" ... Not a single Pub or Dem is going to vote for it ... Talk about a Pres being out if touch.

    "I care deeply about the three years of unemployment, I feel your pain. And I share your concerns, that's why, after my week vacation in marthas vineyard, I'm going to present a jobs bill that no one in their right mind will pass"

    First line: You are captain of your fate. What you do makes for what happens to you. Poor folks who get arrested for getting in fights, who drink to much, drop out of school, who spend all the money on lottery tickets have earned their position, just as the person who got a degree in something useful, works 60 hours a week and spends his money has earned his position as well.

    Second line: Obama likes to divide and conquer. He likes to find the target, isolate it and raise jihad against it. Usually this target is randome rich person. Or the rich in general. Attacking the minority in order surpress ciivil discourse and make the whole society complicit in the robbery of the minority is why he is dangerous for civil liberty as well as the economy. I am not safe in what is mine unless everyone else is safe in what is theirs. If I the state allows the robbery of Israel Finkelstein, then it is very likely that I might be next on the socially approved robbery list.
