Shared Sacrifice? Sure!

Listen up you rich fucks, you banksters, you political enablers.

Those of us out here in the real world have been sacrificing for years now. You crashed the markets and took our retirements. You pushed easy credit and the notion of flipping property for fun and profit because you could make easy money off of the origination fees and commission on the loans. You are paying the lowest tax rates since early last century and it's still not enough for your sick greedy designs. You sick fucks just wasted how many of your dollars trying to buy a presidency so you could turn the screws even tighter on us.

Well it's about damned time you start sacrificing! No, really it way past time you start sharing them because we've been sacrificing too much for way too long.

We ain't making any more of them.

3. Kickety kick

because WE have been sacrificing and struggling. The majority of us have. They haven't and they never will.

And they have been getting richer and richer while at the same time, siphoning money out of our treasury.

I'm sorry. If I have $1000 and am asked to pay $100 of it--that sacrifice is going to be food, shelter, utilities.
If you have $100,000 and are asked to pay $1000...you will never miss it.

This is what I don't understand and never will. The punditry and politicians act as if it is a burden to ask the rich to pay what we pay, when they don't understand that we are ALREADY bearing the burden of what we pay. Even at the same percentage, they will NEVER share that burden. Never. Equal pay for equal play. I pay 10% and you pay 10% (or whatever random figure you want to use). The sacrifice that WE bear will always be the choice between ramen noodles or hamburger. The "sacrifice" they bear is they won't be able to buy another home.

If ANYONE gets a break here...it should be obvious who that should be.

4. Papa John's

Their CEO lives in a fucking castle with a 22 car garage yet he can't shill out an extra 14 measily cents a pizza so his less than minimum wage employees get health insurance. I agree fuck this shit. I'm done listening to the rich piss and moan about "shared sacrifice" while they pillage and plunder our economy into the toilet. Fuck that.
