The Whiny 53 have got their own Tumblr blog!. This angrily self-reliant American claims to have worked her ass off for everything she has, which might be true if you don't count the taxpayer-funded college education she admits to receiving.

So...you worked your ass off and got good grades in college but you still can't construct a sensible argument. Methinks our taxpayer dollars have been wasted...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.

    The so-called 53% willfully blind themselves to the simple fact that they are as much captives of corporate greed as the rest of us. I mean, what could possibly be gained by falling for the old divide-and-conquer tactic that the GOP and their big business interests have utilized numerous times in the past?

    Sun Tzu, and later Miyamoto Musashi, teach in their respective tactical masterworks that the goal of victory in battle is to achieve said victory without even having to make a move, let alone use any resources. The main staple of these strategies is to psych the opponent into defeating themself.

    Those that subscribe to the angry, counterproductive and comparitively incoherent argument of the 53% that paid their taxes last year,"unlike the rest of us libruhls," are suffering under a profound delusion of superiority and merely seek to see themselves get screwed over a little bit less than the rest of their fellow Americans, should the unleaded evil of the current Republican Tea Party regain complete control of our government instead of just the Supreme Court and the House.
