DamnYankees: Heads will roll.
Mjeck: Jackson Herring: wow, i've never before encountered a group of people who so desperately need to kill themselvesFarkers or the Wealthy?
Captain Dan: ongbok: Never heard of the French Revolution and the bourgeoisie?If the French Revolutionaries had been well-fed to the point of obese, and had access to TV, porn, and marijuana, then France would still today have the Ancien Régime.
WraithSama: Lionel Mandrake: the one percent simply "work harder" than everyone else.That may be generally true...but they don't work many thousands X harder than everyone else, you farksticks.And it all depends on what you mean by "hard work." One day in the fields with farm workers would probably kill you shiatheads.That is the single argument of the rich that pisses me off the most. If some rich asshole tells me he's rich simply because he "works harder" than the poor, it would take a not-insignificant amount of effort to not throat punch him on the spot. It does (usually) take hard work to become rich, but it takes an equal measure of opportunity (plus the random factor of luck), and opportunity is not something everyone has. That's kind of the point.Besides, I've heard it said before that if all it took to be wealthy was hard work, then unwed single mothers would among the world's richest. I don't doubt it.
plewis: fark these people. fark the nameable very very rich. And SUPER fark them if they just sit on their mountain of gold, the farkers. THAT shiat is what is killing the American economy. No one would begrudge them their wealth if they farkING WORKED!

Those millionaire's stretched and worn out bootstraps

Captain Dan: T-Servo: There is some well-established historical precedent for the Fark position.Revolutions are started by people who are starving to death, not middle-class dorks whose greatest complaint is the price of microwavable "Dinner for one" meals.
Captain Dan: Obviously deluded rich people: "We're being scapegoated by envious liberals."Fark Liberals: "Self-pity? Off with their heads!"
ongbok: Time to sharpen up the old pitchfork, get the torches ready and dust off the gallows.
