    I've watched for 2 years now as the left continues it's massive class warfare assault on the most productive citizens of this nation. It's quite sickening, really. I can't count how many lefties I've heard say the rich "need to pay their fair share". By "fair" the basically mean the rich just need to pay even more, because the current government entitlements are not meeting the demands of the left wing. It has nothing to do with "fair".

    The rich already pay more, FAR more, in both % of income, and just net total of $$ paid to the government. The top 25% of earners in this nation basically fund the gov't that serves the other 75%. And whatever, for a gov't to work, it needs some $$. And to fund our massive military, and the best social support net in the world imo, we do have to take more in % and total $$ from the wealthier. But why, then, do we continue to target them? And with such hatred?

    You lefties are directing your hatred towards the most productive people in the country? They have paid their "fair share". The middle class have also, by paying taxes AND doing the brunt of stability work in our middle class that supports this nation's success.


    But now, lets talk about the "poor" who supposedly already pay their "fair share" since the left never blames them. I've already posted time and time again the stats from the Census Bureau that show our "poor" aren't poor at all, but rather would be middle class globally. Our "poor" enjoy comforts unseen by much of the world. Hell, our poor are OBESE. That says something very significant.


    But lets see. And this is not directed at all poor people, but many:

    - Many of our poor do drugs. Thats a big reason they remain poor, or got poor.
    - Many of our poor PLAY THE LOTTERY. Yep. Go to any gas station in a "poor" area. You'll see countless folks buying "tickets" daily. Wasting money. Yet.....they are helpless and have no way to thrive. Add their yearly lottery spending, and they could probably buy a semester at a local community tech college.
    - Many of our poor are lazy. Yep. They simply do not want to strive. There are jobs out there that suck, but PAY, and they just dont wanna do them. They dont wanna be the garbage man. Or deliver pizzas. Or be a janitor. They'd rather sit home, collect checks, and wait on the left to say the rich "owe" them more.

    I just can't help but see so many of our "poor" are have enough money to get fat. Enough to get a cell phone. And cable. And air conditioning. And a car. And the newest FUBU clothes, or ipods, or latest rap CD. Or latest NASCAR video game. I can't help but notice that while our poor are scratching by on almost nothing, they somehow find enough money to play 5 lotto tickets a day and buy a case of beer.

    And, just as I did this morning, I can't help but notice every Sunday morning, the classifieds in the newspaper has dozens and dozens if not hundreds of jobs locally for pizza delivery, car washer staff, janitor, trash collector, sanitation worker, landscape labor, dish washer at the countless bars/pubs in Charleston, etc, etc, etc.................and then later in the day I see on the local TV news yet another story about the "poor" who are so oppressed........and the rich who aren't "Paying their fair share".

    You accuse the left of "massive class warfare assault", but then you do the same in response.

    Yep. Kinda like how the US retaliated after Pearl Harbor.

    Eventually, the left must expect that the citizens of this nation who are PRODUCTIVE will fight back.

    Why does the left attack the people who are most productive in this country? Why is the left not starting a massive campaign saying "Poor people of America, stats show you spend $1,000 a year on average for lottery tickets, spend that on a semester at community college instead"

    Or, other slogans that would help the poor if the left would adopt them:


    "Poor people of the country.........cancel your cell phone bill! Cancel your Comcast cable bill! Stop buying Ipods, Xbox, the new P-Diddy clothing line! Stop putting $2500 rims on your new car!! Use that money instead to put yourself through a tech school! Or on your kids future education!"


    No. It's so much easier to just demand more money be taken from the productive people of this country to give to the poor. Because it's worked so well over the last 75 years, right?

    Ah yes, accuse the "left" of class warfare while doing exactly that in the same post. The lack of logic is strong in this one.

    You're just not going to convince people with an entitlement mentality otherwise.

    Not a parrot at all. I'm not the only one who is noticing the stupidity put forth by Bucs so far in this thread.

    As I said, eventually, the people the left are attacking will fight back. Which is what my humble effort here is to do.

    I'm middle class. But if my taxes go up, and entitlements are expanded, I have to ask, what for?

    For the losers who are in line every day at the gas station to buy yet another 5 lottery tickets? For the losers in the hood who bitch about the rich not paying their fair share, but somehow while being "poor" found enough money for an iphone, new rims for their car, and the newest P Diddy clothing?

    Or for the lazy, unproductive "poor" people who whine about the gov't not helping them, while in that same day's newspaper are countless classified ads for low level employment that they COULD be working, but simpy refuse to do?


    The saddest thing is the left wing keeps supporting this behavior.

    Well, rather than just call it stupidity, put forth a rational argument against it. Other than saying it's reverse class warfare. Because the middle/upper class are tired of being ridiculed, while the poor in this country sit back and refuse to improve themselves or carry their own weight.

    I pretty much give up commenting on this,well maybe not all together.Those that are collecting unemployment have stated,well a good number of them anyway that they will go out and start to look for work when the checks run out.Why,well because they will have to.Ed Shultz of MSNBC dedicates a good part of his show to "fighting" for these poor deprived Americans some who have collected a check for 2 years now,he will fight till his last breath to get these folks another extension so they can stay home and collect.

    Why go out and try to help yourselves when all you need to do is vote Democrat,and in return the Dems will go after those in this country who produce.They will take from those who have to give to those who have not.

    It pretty much is as simple as that......
