Nobody who works 40 hours a week should live in poverty...


Yeah, I know...  It's not that simple.  Or is it?

Ding, Ding, Ding! SPOT On, Blue!! Redistribution sucks! Hanity had a Bernie (Uncle BS) supporter on the radio yesterday, who advocated taking 50% of peoples money to help pay for all the FREE SH!T!! He says that if you take $100,000.00 from someone you could give $1000.00 to 100 people. Then when they spent the $$$ it would help jumpstart the economy. The guy was 62 yrs old for Pete's sake and dumber than a roll of chicken wire.

Crazy folk. We no longer look like "the land of opportunity". Well, a redefined opportunity, perhaps. An opportunity to get something for nothing. It worked so well in the USSR, right? ;)

Speaking of Hannity, I was fortunate enough to hear a similar male caller who was 30. He whined and whined about equality /free stuff, yet he was living in his parent's basement. Finally, Hannity said he'd had enough. He told the man, "Instead of whining, go out and get a job because you're physically able and make some money. Then when someone, like you wants part of it, you'll understand what real life is about. I'm done with you." Priceless.
