  •  Sadly Limbaugh/Fox News fans (12+ / 0-)

    believe that if someone has it better than you, you should try to drag them down to your level, rather than try to raise yourself up to theirs. I can't believe what a great job those peddlers of propaganda have managed to do in that regard. Pretty damned sad. And scary.

    •  What are we, Russia now? (4+ / 0-)

      I ain't kidding, there's an old Russian joke I read in a dissident's novel about life in Russia that fits Limbaugh and Fox News like a glove.  It goes like this:

      A Frenchman sees that his neighbor has a beautiful mistress.  He prays to God:  "Please give me a mistress as beautiful as my neighbor's mistress."

      An American's neighbor has a new car.  The American prays:  "Please, God, give me that raise so I can afford a new car, too."

      A Russian peasant's neighbor bought a new goat.  The Russian peasant prays:  "Please, God, kill my neighbor's goat."
