Jesus H. Christ riding a vegetarian T-Rex, has everyone on the right lost their collective mind? Seriously, how stupid can these morons get? Say I am an engineer making $75,000 a year and I lose my job. Is taking a job that pays $10,000 a year going to make up for that lost income?
I am at a loss as to how to explain the absolute dumbing down of the American right wing. How can anyone with a high school education believe and regurgitate this crap? The middle class is dying, but the blame for the recession falls on a minimum wage that is too high? But not on greedy bankers who would have sold their own mothers for a buck? Not on CEOs who make more money in a year than most of us will earn in 20 lifetimes?
We have corporations rolling in profits, but refusing to hire new workers, refusing to raise the pay of the underpaid and overworked employees who survived the massive layoffs during the economic upheaval. But the blame for all of this lies at the feet of those who lost their jobs and have tried to hold out hope that they could take a job that would pay them a fraction of their value—only to find out that even those jobs were not available.
These same people refuse to raise the minimum wage because it will kill jobs—yet are all for a CEO earning millions upon millions in yearly compensation. I am pretty sure the giving the guy flippin’ burgers at McDonald’s a raise to $15.00 an hour will do more to improve the economy and job market than paying some CEO who has never worked a day in his life an extra million for laying off a thousand people to raise his company’s stock price a few cents.
I am tired of the stupid that comes out of the mouths of those on the right. Seriously how can these idiots even have a seat at the table? We are turning into the society featured in the movie Idiocracy because of them.
