"On the dole." Yeah. What a worthless taker I am, I should just die. Wow. Haven't heard such insulting language for years. Leave it to Romney, Ryan and billionaires like Leon Cooperman to resurrect the pejorative term, "dole." They say that 47%, or 30% or 40-50% of Americans WANT to "live on the dole," as "takers." "Slackers" and good-for-nothing moochers who want to live off the 1%. That's what they think!
Keep in mind that Romney said last week that his "Big Idea" was "Freedom." I get it now! He wants to give us moochers the "Freedom" to die!
I think I'm freekin' sick of their lies, slurs and character assassinations!! I'm on Social Security of $768/month. Yes, now old and newly poor. Worked, have a good degree, taught, even started a business that employed several people and exists 14 years later! No slacker. But now am poor due to health problems in my 50's, unable to work, lived off pension fund. Medicaid helps when Medicare is not enough, and Food Stamps stretch my meager income.
What else should I do, Mitt, Paul? Die?
Do they really have a fundamental misunderstanding of Americans who receive government money? It would be astounding, if so, since one is an ex-governor, another a U.S. Representative and the other a billionaire. They are all heartless idiots, that is certain. Idiots because the kind of America their policies would create would be a mere shell of the America we have today. More on that below.
And they want to fundamentally change America--so they can have more millions or billions even if they destroy the country doing so.
Let's be sure they do understand:
~ MOST people getting government checks, or aid,
work or have worked all their lives!
~ If not seniors on SS, they Work, or WANT to Work
~ Or they cannot work due to age, disability, childcare costs
~ Or simply are unable to any FIND work
~ Or their full-time jobs pay so poorly that it is
not enough to sustain life!
~ And even I, sponge that I am, pay taxes, on my old, old car,
on non-food items, and others pay many other types of taxes
Government checks go to elderly on SS and Medicare, poor and disabled on Medicaid, to Veterans, Food Stamps to working hungry families!
Oh, the Right/Republicans/Romney/Ryan and 1%-ers do understand. They just hate it. They may not know the facts. (Still, they spread this misinformation in typical Republican fashion.) We do know they DO NOT CARE! They said so!
Like Romney tonight, they (Republicans) will all say anything, they LIE. Anything for public consumption, anything at all to win election. How many lies will Romney make tonight --to get elected and to please those who bought him?
Because by winning the election they will please the 1%, of whom they are part, and they will be able to carry out the 1% agenda which has been clearly spelled out. No amount of lying from podiums, in stump speeches or interviews or mailed propaganda will change the true plans of these plutocrats who seek to run the government their way entirely.
Which they have "inartfully" revealed. Look below at what they are planning.
