What's wrong with America: Volume 42
Want to know what's wrong with America?  Here's a glimpse.  

On the news that the Unemployment rate remains at historic lows here are some responses from assclowns who (unfortunately) vote: 

That's all well and good, but what is the poverty level and average pay?

The real question is how much are these jobs paying and how much is insurance costing?

I stupidly tried to engage these morons: 

Please explain to me how higher unemployment is going to improve the poverty level or increase average pay?  

The question of pay rates and insurance is not a question at all unless you're just looking for a reason to complain. There is value in work. It's part of the American fabric. Any pay is better than no pay and further reliance on government assistance. Insurance was significantly less expensive before the government "fixed" it. The situation is exponentially worse now. I really don't see how these questions have any merit.

And this is what I get back: 

As a taxpayer, it makes my blood boil that some companies (Walmart is famous for this, but there are others) pay such low salaries that their employees qualify for public assistance. These companies count on us to provide for their workers so they can keep their profits higher. And they also offer very expensive insurance with very poor benefits. Once again, so the employee (or their kids) will qualify for aid from us, the taxpayer. These question has a LOT of merit.

 If you have ever been stuck in a job that pays you just enough to eat and buy enough gas to get back to work you work in the morning you might think different.

So the liberal bleeding heart morons would prefer that people be on complete government assistance rather than working lower level jobs in order to gain experience and build a resume that could lead to a better job.  It's Wal Mart's responsibility to pay them enough to live the upper crust life they deserve.  

My God.  I knew that the job I had stocking shelves at the clothing store wasn't supposed to be my career.  I also understood the value of work -- psychologically and economically. 

I reiterate -- we are screwed.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

When we let liberals take over education, we lost.
When we stopped teaching civics and started teaching social studies, we lost.

This is my single biggest complaint about the $15/hour people.  McDonalds isn't supposed to be a career.  It's supposed to be giving teenagers some extra money so they can fill their car with gas, and go to a movie on weekends.  If you are counting on fastfood as a career, you've made some fudgeed up life choices.  And I'm sorry, if it's because you have several kids, maybe you should have kept your fudgeing legs closed.

Did he ever use the term, "lynching"?
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

Re: What's wrong with America: Volume 42
All these motherfudgeers pissed off that he used the word should consult the dictionary.
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

He could have said "I like vanilla ice cream" and somebody in Congress would want an inquiry into his racist food tendencies.
