Poor People Philosophy

On the front page of today's Clarion Ledger, there is a heartbreaking article about a woman struggling to make ends meet. THIS is on the FRONT PAGE (above the fold) of our major newspaper in Jackson, Mississippi. HERE is the index page of the paper's website. The story switches out in the frame with three or four other stories. Just hang at the front page, you'll see what I mean.

Now, I would like to know, HOW IN THE MORTAL HELL IS THIS ABOVE THE FOLD NEWS? You wanna know why? The idiotic paper here in Jackson endorsed the moron for president yesterday and they are going to go all out to put things in a Barry positive light.

If you read the article, you will find that the story is sad. Poor woman just can't make ends meet. When the end of the month rolls around, she only has one hundred dollars left from her salary. No car, mortgage is late, daughter has asthma, yeah, we get it. Times are tough for her. But, look at the photograph. Does she look like she has missed a single meal? Oh shit, she had to do away with CABLE?!?!?! Does she look like she has missed a damn meal, folks? CABLE?!?!?!

This woman is not POOR in the same vein as the people in other countries are poor. The damn paper even stated that she did not own a car. (I do realize that not owning a car in our area makes things somewhat difficult, but dang, she doesn't own a car so she's poor? What's the next step? She doesn't own a sixty-eight inch plasma television, so she's poor?)

Folks, there is a problem in our country right now and it doesn't have anything to do with a bunch of rich folks taking all the money and screwing over the little guy. It has to do with the fact that we have become lazy and have turned to GOVERNMENT to make us NOT POOR.

There are problems here and it doesn't have to do with racism, sexism, oppression, or anything like that. It has to do with the murder of the American pioneering spirit. Our population has been spoon fed a lifestyle of "sit-on-your-assedness."

Tomorrow will show us which way our country is going to go. If you vote for Barry, expect many more stories from a bunch of damn sissies about poor folks that make seven times as much as poor folks in other countries. If you vote for Barry, you are making a definitive statement that you want to quit working and you want everyone else to do the same. If you vote for Barry, you are declaring to the world that you are a deadbeat loser and want everyone to stoop to your level. And if you vote for Barry, you are extolling the virtues of nothing and hate our country.

That is what you are doing when you pull the lever for Barry, do not attempt to say otherwise, you are a deadbeat loser and you want everyone else to share in your misery.

Please take the time to comment.

Oh horsefeathers...I liked ol' TD ever since he sparked up that uppity MSU undergrad on my blog (prolly an Oblahblah supporter too, who wants his weather forecasts subsidized by you and me for not answering his silly question).

BTW...beej has a hot photo ;)

Dang, I had forgotten all about that crap. It has been a year or so?

Beej is the quintessential Southern Belle, Skunky, they are all hawt. But you don't want to get any of that on you. HIGH maintenance.
