I'm lazy and I want gifts and that is the reason I find myself where I am..... being laid off

due to a Bush conceived economy had little to do with it, the medical bills that forced me out of my house had little to do with it,

Katrina stole my home but that had little to do with it, the drought took my farm but again, it and global climate change driven by corporate greed had little to do with it.

Sandy took everything I worked for my entire life but that had little to do with it, and the storms in the midwest that levelled my hometown had very very little to do with it.

Criminals on Wall Street evaporated most of my retirement plan but that had little to do with it, you see, I am just one of those 47% people who won't try, won't make an attempt, and just want things because I have become dependant on the govt.... that's just how my DNA is printed.

All that disaster stuff above, manmade and natural, they are not even in one former unpresidential candidate's vocabulary. He doesn't see it, can't comprehend that some people get dealt a crappy hand, can't wrap his corporate brain around the fact that some people are victims, some people have unfortunate things happen to them, but in reality he should know after taking the jobs and retirements of American workers and flushing them down the toilet.

Ya see Mitt, we are all just lazy and everything that happens to us is of our own doing now go ride your car elevator up and down for a few days, with any luck you will be able to charge admission to help pay for it.

6. No, no, no. You're thinking of Mitch. Mitch. I believe he owned a horse that could

tap dance and sing. It had its own elevator.

8. I'm lazy and I want gifts too ... and that's why

I became a Republican congressperson. And once I'm finished cashing in there for doing not-much-more than saying NO to everything that's presented to me, will "retire" to become a corporate lobbyist.

12. I was sort of "eh" about Romney, until I heard him "uncensored."

Talking about the 47% and the "gift" voters. And, knowing he was born into wealth, knowing he believes in some of the most outlandish and stupid bullshit that passes for religion in this nation...

Every time I see his name now, my automatic reaction is "You stupid fucking elitist asshole."

If HE wants to "gift" those who are already wealthy for behaving like pigs at the trough, well, all righty then. God is pleased.

If THE MAJORITY of this nation wants equitable tax distribution and the common good... we're the parasites?

Little Willard, still a twit, no matter how many rich creeps back you.

I really, really think this nation dodged a bullet big time by keeping that clueless cult and money f*cker out of office.

I detest him.

14. Ever since I first heard the phrase "Nanny Government"

the chorus of an old Phil Harris song has come to me when these "Anti-Government" blowhards talk about all us Takers. It sums up pretty well the "Gifts" I want from my government.

So Lord Lord if you can't help me
For goodness sake don't help that bear.

I'm not asking the government to give me gifts. I'm just asking that they not let the oligarchy write all the laws giving themselves a free pass. A little regulation should be the government's job.

I get why the oligarchy demonizes those who want a responsible, responsive government. What I don't get is how so many fall for their B.S.

Then there's this great graphic but I don't know how to post graphics in my reply. It says:

I don't want free healthcare; I want affordable healthcare.

I don't want money for nothing; I want the opportunity for a good job.

I don't expect every election to bring the result I want; I just want my vote to count.

I don't want businesses to be unprofitable; I want them out of the regulatory and political processes.

I don't want the wealthiest Americans to pay for everything; I want them to pay their share.
