Say no more.

I'm surprised it wasn't at Versailles.


Leder, co-CEO of the private equity firm Sun Capital, was inspired to get into the private equity business during a visit to Romney's former private equity firm, Bain Capital.

Corvus: What entitled "people" who pay no income tax may look like:

[ionenewsone.files.wordpress.com image 452x693]


And whose fault is that? It's Congresses and the Presidents. President Obama has not even mentioned these multi-million/billion corporations. Just wants to raise taxes on those making $150,000.00+ (combined). Real small businesses that do not pay minimum wage but actual salaries will be effected. A company needs to make ~$100K per employee that makes ~$50K + benefits. Increasing their taxes do not allow these small business grow.

impaler: skullkrusher: impaler: skullkrusher: I don't know why making people work for their public support is mean. In fact, I think it's a wonderful idea, if possible.

Some sort of "earned income tax credit" or "work for welfare" system...

Wait. That's exactly what we have.

nothing even close to what we have.

Except it's exactly what we have. Well, except for children getting food stamps - the mooches.


no, it is nothing remotely close to what we have. How does the EITC rebuild bridges or tile the floor of the Federal courthouse?

Well, the Fox News web site has a big picture of angry mooslims on its front page... but nothing about the Romney story.

/Shocked, shocked

The sad thing is that Fox News really does think the Republicans have the upper hand in the foreign policy debate.


LOL, I'm currently reading 500 Days, the latest Eichenwald book, so I'm getting a kick out of that remark.

You really think that the Obama campaign doesn't think that a good portion of Romney's base is a bunch of racist whackjobs, either?

This would be like Obama coming out and saying that everyone voting against him is a racist whackjob.

Okay, Obama knows better than saying that, even in private. But you can't tell me that a good number of liberals aren't thinking that exact thought.


No but we know that it's true of a majority of Republican voters. That majority may only be 51% of republican voters but it's still a majority.

If a company has $100,000 in revenue, and pays $80,000 in salary, they're taxable income is $20,000, not the full $100,000 in revenue.

eddiesocket: themeaningoflifeisnot: RyogaM: He wasn't claiming 47% of Obama voters think of themselves as victims. He was saying 96% of Obama voters think of themselves as victims. If Obama said that 96% of Republicans were racists or 96% clung to guns and religion, or 96% wanted to see people starve, die from treatable health disease or died outside in the, well, you'd have yourself a shiatstorm. Clearly, the above only applies to 90% of Republicans.

jk

It's worse than that, though. Romney's premise wasn't just "Obama voters." It was "the 47% of voters who don't pay taxes," who he assumes will vote for Obama. Romney truly believes that 47% of the electorate are worthless pieces of shiat living high off the government hog, and that it's his job to stop them.

56% of those who don't pay income tax are retired. Obama voters?


Romney is so extreme that he views Social Security as an entitlement instead of as a forced retirement savings program that the government has imposed on us for generations. People worked to pay into Social Security, Mitt. They earned that Social Security check. It's not a f*cking handout, douchebag elitist.

Ladies and gentlemen... the guy calls the truth out and he gets roasted for it.

Bullshiat. You know goddam well his blanket statement of an "overwhelming majority" is false and unsubstantiated. I am a strong supporter of Obama and am not "dependent on government". I don't mind my taxes being used to provide basic services to those who need them at the time. Republicans only don't believe in this stuff until it's them or their families impacted and then, of course, they're the first in goddam line for whatever hand outs they can get. Your side is hypocritical and weak. And Romney is a classless snob who thinks others are beneath him because of his monetary wealth.

2012-09-17 09:35:21 PM

Dancin_In_Anson: vartian: I believe peopled are entitled to those things.

At least you agree with the statement and are happy to admit it. Everyone else does but seems to be bothered by that fact.


Having seen you on Fark for quite a while you actually seem like decent fellow, however I may personally disagree with you more often than not, so I'm going to make the effort to propose to you what, to me, is an obvious argument that gets overlooked.

First, let's dispense with the notion of 'fair' or 'ethical' because those terms means different things to different people. While I personally feel that it's perfectly fair for us, as a country, to lobby for and support public assistance for those in need, and I also believe that it's fair, given the nature of our governing principles, that we all chip in to help the least among us, I understand that others feel that it's 'unfair' that they're required to do so against their will through the advent of taxation. So, again, let's dispense with fair.

Let's focus on basic sustainability. The reality is this: we live in a competitive world. The very premise of capitalism is competition. Neither our economy nor our society, really, would work without it.

The beauty of a culture that's based on competition is that we all challenge each other to be better, and build upon the successes of individuals to grow the success of the whole.

The problem with a culture that's based on competition is that in every competition there are losers, and as often as not, the ones who lose do so through no real fault of their own. Children born to deadbeat parents, old people that get screwed out of their retirement or never make enough to save for it, mentally or physically handicapped people who can't compete on equal footing with the rest of us.

Those people suffer for the competition that the rest of us thrive on. Sure, there are losers who simply lack ambition or motivation to go anywhere in life, but honestly their lives tend to be crappy anyway. Living in tenement apartments with roommates doing crap jobs for crap pay scraping by on food stamps and sorting through free boxes for clothes is hardly the high life. If they didn't get those food stamps I don't really see them having an epiphany and learning a trade skill to get better work, they'd most likely turn to crime and simply be another kind of burden.

So let's dispense with the 'lazy' folks issue as well. Not only does it realistically represent a distinctly minority fraction, it's not a problem we can actually solve. Loafers and leeches will persist to pick up table scraps never considering doing more, but giving them enough to survive so they don't end up costing us more in the prison system seems like a worthwhile investment.

So what we have left is the people who, through no fault of their own, end up in dire straights or are never in a position to compete on equal footing. Again, we could say tough! Them's the breaks! Have them hole up in a shelter and eat what meager sustenance charity may offer. The issues with that are numerous.

1. Health/Safety
A larger and less cared for population of homeless or vagrant children, elderly, and disabled would substantially contribute to the likelihood of disease outbreaks. Lower standards of hygiene and overall health mean they will be more likely to get sick, more likely to incubate sickness for long periods of time and to spread it more or less anonymously because they can't afford to seek medical treatment until they end up in the emergency room. This means higher risk to public safety. Talk to anyone associated with the CDC, their worst nightmare is a growing vagrant population that doesn't see a doctor until they're almost dead.

2. Crime
Not helping the less fortunate among us will lead to petty larceny, burglary, and violent crime. We only have to look at the state of lower income neighborhoods to conclude that. Desperate people do desperate things. It doesn't mean that poor people are evil, it means that they're going to do what they feel they need to in order to survive or feed their families. If that means mugging someone else because they have been trying to get a job for 2 years and had their unemployment cut, and their food stamps and welfare slashed, and they don't see any other way around it, then so be it.

3. Positive Economic activity
Supply-side economics is a myth. I'm reasonably confident that you know that. So let's dispense with the absurdity of the idea that 'giving rich people more money means economic activity!'. Economic activity is spurred by consumers. Consumers cannot consume without resources. Putting those less fortunate in a position to contribute to general economic activity does far more for the economy than giving people tax breaks. If you'll recall, the majority of the 'stimulus' packages that have occurred over the last several decades have come in the form of checks directly to lower/middle income families that were then used by them to directly infuse money into the economy. Yes, giving away money is not a long term solution to economic problems, but suddenly removing that consumer purchasing power would only hurt things. You better believe that those couple million people spending their food stamps at the local grocery store help employ the checkers, the janitors, the distributers, etc.

4. Common sense
Funding for food stamps and welfare is such a minute fraction of our budget. Less than a penny on the dollar of your taxes. And yet it helps millions of people. Medicare is definitely a burden, but it's also among the most valuable things we do as a country to ensure the health and safety of all of our citizens. For those of us unable to afford private doctors, we depend on the already overburdened health care system. The impact of a single outbreak caused by lack of basic care for the poor/elderly could break the back of that system putting every one in this country at risk.

I don't expect you to agree with me, but I'd appreciate it if you would relent from using tired tropes about how everyone that believes in the use of public funds for the health/wellbeing of those less fortunate is either a bleeding heart or a leech. Some of us simply recognize that there's a lot more to the issue than can be put into a soundbite.

You mean the way prison is supposed to be horrible so that people don't ever want to go back? Because that is so much better than providing job training and treatment for substance abuse.

since I have no idea wtf you're talking about or what I said has to do with substance abuse treatment, I can't say whether I mean it that way or not.



Well it made sense in my head.

When you said your nearest workhouse. You're supposed to hate those I read that as though you thought that there should be workhouses and that conditions in them should be so bad that people would not want to go to them. Upon farther review I guess I jumped to conclusions.

However it is very common for people to state that prisons are to cushy and that people should be punished not rehabilatated It was wrong for me to assumet that you agreed with this sentiment from your comment.

I just don't understand your train of thought from your Weeners to me up until now. First you say I should hate work houses, then you say it's because I'm liberal - which I'm not, and still have no clue why you thought I was - which is a line of thinking I genuinely haven't heard from anyone, liberal or conservative. Then you say you thought I was opposed to making people work for their public support, which is as I've said not a position I've ever heard coming from any side of the political spectrum except possibly some variants of libertarianism. And you still haven't explained why you thought I was one of those people who are opposed to making people work for their public support. A little explanation would be helpful.

But Mitt, I'm also a fan of politics, and here's a little tip. Not only is it a bad idea to write off 47% of the electorate--since that means you need to win 94% of the rest, which is a bit difficult--but more to the point,

A METRIC FARK-TON OF THAT 47% ARE POOR, RECENTLY UNEMPLOYED REPUBLICANS OR RED-STATE RETIREES WHO USED TO BE VOTING FOR YOU UNTIL YOU SHIAT ALL OVER THEM JUST NOW.

The idiots defending this are almost as tin eared as Romney, and they're getting owned in this thread so bad it's ridiculous. A lot of these previous gaffes have been tempests in teapots IMHO, but this one deserves to stick.

Obama campaign ads:
Show a cancer patient going bankrupt, then play Romney's clip.
Show a homeless child, then play Romney's clip.
Show a college student, then play Romney's clip.
Show a veteran, then play Romney's clip.

What do you love about America? The mountains? The buildings? Not the environment, of course. Certainly not the government. How about loving the people of America for a change?

American citizens work hard, they play by the rules, and they expect to get ahead. Instead, they're working harder, longer, and for less. They aren't rich and they don't get the breaks, the perks, or the special treatment that the rich get. And here we have a guy running to be president who still has to shiat all over their efforts. Way to unify and inspire the people, great leader.

And most of his supporters claim to be Christian, yet they're HORRIFIED at the thought of poor people getting help, or they hate the lazy so much they're willing to take away help from deserving people just to punish the layabouts. What's so Christian about that? It makes me sick. What good is a religion if it only leads you to hate and hypocrisy, and provides no moral compass?

It's very sad. And every "conservative" that ever complained about "class warfare" deserves a swift kick in the yarbles. I hope Romney loses in a landslide.

semiotix: A METRIC FARK-TON OF THAT 47% ARE POOR, RECENTLY UNEMPLOYED REPUBLICANS OR RED-STATE RETIREES WHO USED TO BE VOTING FOR YOU UNTIL YOU SHIAT ALL OVER THEM JUST NOW.


They don't see themselves as being dependent upon the government, even when they are 100% dependent upon the government. They are all bootstrappy, independent snowflakes, as far as they are concerned. Like this guy:

i45.tinypic.com

He was on welfare, and food stamps! And did anyone help him out? NO!

Funk Brothers: I find it amusing that the Romney tape filmed in May took until mid-September to be shown.



That's because that isn't how it happened. It's been on the Internet for months, just in various pieces. Someone finally contacted the person who posted the vids and got them all together in one place.

As to your other delusional point, not a single Democrat that I know is desperate right now. Cautiously optimistic, at worst.

Kome: I just don't understand your train of thought from your Weeners to me up until now. First you say I should hate work houses, then you say it's because I'm liberal - which I'm not, and still have no clue why you thought I was


because I don't favrkie most people and I thought you were one of those names usually attached to stupid shiat. Again, I apologize.

Kome: First you say I should hate work houses, then you say it's because I'm liberal - which I'm not, and still have no clue why you thought I was - which is a line of thinking I genuinely haven't heard from anyone, liberal or conservative. Then you say you thought I was opposed to making people work for their public support, which is as I've said not a position I've ever heard coming from any side of the political spectrum except possibly some variants of libertarianism. And you still haven't explained why you thought I was one of those people who are opposed to making people work for their public support. A little explanation would be helpful.


do some googling on the history of workhouses. They're bad places. It began as a joke about liberals being wishy washy for hating dangerous, unsafe forced labor environments and evolved into a discussion of working for public benefits.

Funk Brothers: I find it amusing that the Romney tape filmed in May took until mid-September to be shown. The Democrats are fighting a losing battle. The Democrats are pulling the few straws they have left. They know their poll numbers from the convention bump are declining and Romney is closing the gap. When the October Surprise comes around, Obama will be doomed.

This is 1980 all over again and it seems a Carter is involved in this candidacy.



Imagine the delusional, pathetic idiot who might actually believe the load of crap you just spouted.

mrshowrules: Dancin_In_Anson: they are "dependent on government" and "believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing,"

Is this an inaccurate statement?

Yes it is. He said 47%. 47% might want access to affordable health care insurance and employment. The number of people as a percentage that want a free ride, would in theory be at least less than the unemployment rate or do you assume all people who can't find work are lazy?


LOL
I love that the premise is that no poor people vote republican. all gop voters are employed. none of them are on welfare or collect food stamps.

ROFL

I see that the inevitable Romnoid meltdown is proceeding as scheduled.

/He really can't coordinate without his beloved Norman.

Mawson of the Antarctic: What is this clip from? Call me crazy but I think I saw something like this a few weeks ago. Someone referring to that clip like the smoking gun for something?



According to a link up thread, these vids were posted in pieces a few months ago. Someone finally put them all together, and now they've gone viral.

I don't know why Romney supporters would be upset by this: It's his own words describing exactly how he feels. If voters agree, he'll win.

AutumnWind: All this from a guy who would rather eat tuna fish off an ironing board than get a job or have his wife get a job.
