24. I'm unemployed, chronically ill, can't get a job OR health insurance
And I know of several other DUers who have it far worse than I do. Some of them have died.

But I have gotten several lectures from Righties about the "Work Ethic". What delight!

If you think I'm being a little too harsh on the rich bastards who have taken hammer-and-tong to keep America firmly fixed in the 19th century, you need to get some perspective.

There IS a Class War going on. The Right is waging it. And it's getting worse. So bad, in fact, that there's even a number of rich people now on our side (notably Warren Buffet, Donald Trump, and, internationally, Mark Shuttleworth).

I think you've seriously blundered into a GOP Talking Points trap. They're good at this propaganda stuff, aren't they? So extract your foot from your mouth and your head from your fanny, learn from your mistake, and fight on.
