There's even a square for that? *shudder*

You said "entitlements" when what you meant was "people who actually have to work (and do a good job) for a living instead of farking everything up royally and then waiting to collect their hefty bonus."
 
But if it makes you feel better to think that I might be jealous of the fact that you'll be one of the first up against the wall, go with it.

I can't see the video.  Do they mean entitlements as in Social Security or as in a sense of entitlement from being born rich and well connected?
 
And how about a vulture capitalist edition?  There aren't any bad squares on that one "IRS informant turned you in for your Swiss account, so you have to go for the amnesty" is as bad as it gets.

This video appears to make fun of the people making fun of the 47%.
 
"$0.90 a day.  Ch-ching!"

Monopoly was first intended to teach about the faults of capitalism, specifically landlords getting richer off their poor tenants http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_board_game_Monopoly

It's a joke video.  It's a video mocking what Republicans think about Romney's 47% in the form of Monopoly.  Go to Jail is now Go to Work.

So being born rich is different then being born with a defect? Like why are football players born with athletic abilities that's not fair!

Yeah, reducing entitlements is like lowering the balance on your bank account.  That's why you're "entitled" to it.  You'd think Republicans would find that worse than taxes.

I want to be a Rothschild. So basically I'll sit in the background and laugh as everyone else plays, never knowing that I actually own everything on the board already, including the chance cards, the pieces, and the table that the board is sitting on.

I don't need all their money and power. I'll just take Château Lafite off their hands and be happy, thank you.

First of the month is here; you spend all of your welfare check on cigarettes, booze, drugs and junk food. Collect additional money from the government totaling $100.

Guess it could also be: "Battered by officials, sue for millions. Become a symbol of civil peace and tolerance. Blow it all on drugs and hookers, End up dying broke in your own swimming pool. Your game is now over, but thanks for playing."

Job Creators Prayer

Our Job Creators who art on Wall Street
Shallow be thy name
Thy profits come
Before everyone
In this country or any other
Give us this day our part time employment
And forgive us our desires
For stability, healthcare and a regular paycheck
And lead us not to a secure future
but deliver us from autonomy and self sufficiency
For thine is the Republic
And the Plutocracy, and the personhood from SCOTUS
For ever and ever
Amen

Conservative logic:

If it doesn't directly affect them it is an entitlement by a moocher.
If it affects them then it is their god given right and the government should be giving more to them more efficiently.

More like "You spend almost all you have on rent,electric,utilities and have maybe $20 left. This year everyone gets a gift from the .99 store down the road."
