5. They actually have people believing that the government is spending the

money on other things.....and not enough are paying in. Using that to justify needed cuts.
Their propaganda has so misinformed people that they are defending what Ryan said.

9. Weasels aren't even that weaselly.

This guy was hand-picked to be the future of his political party by the Koch Bros. to implement the budget they handed to him...tells you quite a bit about how smart they are, doesn't it?

11. In a perfectly egalitarian society, wouldn't 50% of society still be "takers"

What a dumbass. He surely knows that "federal per capita benefits" statistics include things like how much value you, as a driver, get for highway building expenditures, or what is your portion of the total cost of the federal job training program you get from your local community college (and LOTS of community college classes are funded by federal grants). It would also include the per-student benefit of common Dept of Education Title 1 grants. Frankly, I'm surprised that the figure is as low as 60%.

Remember Mark Twain's line about lies, damned lies, and statistics. Ryan wasn't even high lighting the inequality in our economy with his little numbers came. He was simply torturing the meaning of fairly banal statistics to make it seem like the country's falling apart, which it's not.

Before you get on your high horse, though, remember that it's the same game we play when we point out that New Jersey pays per more capita in taxes than Arkansas, so Arkansas is a "taker" state.

22. In the Republican universe, 99% should be givers and 1% takers.

Although the 1% might consist entirely of corporate "persons," not even the wealthiest humans I was originally thinking of.

16. Taker Paul Ryan has been looking for

a government check his entire life. His family got wealthy off government contracts. His father died young, so he received Social Security Survivor Benefits. Now, he is on the political dole the rest of his life.

And the yapping poodles of the Fourth Estate wonder why Taker Ryan was booed? Hard working American workers can recognize an entitlement baby when they see one.

24. Don't be so hard on yourself, Paul.

You're a failed Vice Presidential Candidate. That's low on the food chain, but it's not completely "No One".

Look at Sarah Palin, she even got to be on TV sometimes!
