Lurking *bots and Freakers, yo. In here, especially you blue collar ones.
So you wanted your government run like a business, did you? Well, enjoy. Sit back and enjoy the ride. Your godly Rs have been workin' hard today to take away overtime pay and substitute comp time, which your supervisor will likely never let you use--particulary if you work for an itty-bitty business where the bossperson doesn't really want to be minding the store.

You are so going to be paying taxes like you've never paid before (and not just federal--how do you think your local government is going to get the funds to fill the potholes, maintain the sewers, pick up your garbage, maintain your schools, you stupid, thickheaded morans?). While they are at it, your fine Christian Rs are busy stripping you of the piddly little tax shelters they toss the way of the middle and working class. Your taxes will be due on tax day and in cash.

You are going to pay out the wazzoo for energy, food, clothing, and any product your shrivelled little hearts desire--and you won't be able to charge it all--cause they are comin' for yer credit cards. When those are gone, they'll repo your car and foreclose on your house. Instead of huggin' your guns, you should have been holding tight to your wallets. Instead of paying attention to your neighbors bedroom activities, you should have had your eye on your bank account. Forget the retirement fund, cause the Rs and their corporate cronies will find a way to steal those before this is over. You are going to work till you die. And you may die much sooner than you anticipate, cause you won't be able to afford the health insurance policies and the government won't regulate the insurance industry to make sure you can.

Congratulations--welcome to the brave new world. Yer on yer own and they don't give a damn. Suckers!

1. So, if we respond to this are we freeps?
All the bs that is going on w/housing and heating and credit card rates are going to squeeze all of us. How is America going to survive?

Guarantee the rich aren't gonna help (hey, they'll be wintering where it's warm).

But don't think for a second that the blue collar republicans won't get in line for welfare assistance this winter (and they'll still bitch about having to pay taxes).

3. Well said Skidmore
The poor saps were sooo easy to con. They thought they were bigtime by voting for that corrupt shower when the Repugs were really pissing themselves laughing at the simpletons all along.

Like taking candy from a baby. Stupid morans...you voted for them and they fleeced you. Fucking dimwits.

19. And since they're a bunch of fucking cowards,
don't expect them to admit their mistake anytime soon.

4. The ironic part is that nobody is going to "outlaw abortion"
and Gay marriage will eventually be recognized. All the while the average guy gets squeezed by bush big money policy and get laughed at by the ruling class.

5. As a Blue collar guy
I cannot understand why any Union member, or any other working stiff for that matter, would vote Republican. It goes against our interests. But I do believe the tide is turning. Look at the poll numbers. When people get hit in the wallet, then they (we) pay attention. Like Clinton was told, "It's the economy stupid." And he did something about it.

9. We're basically a blue collar family too. And proud of it.
Not afraid to get the hands dirty. But we're smart--eh, Bluzmann?

11. Ever notice how the same groups of Americans continuously fight
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 06:22 PM by Blue State Native
tooth and nail for the little concessions they manage to get? And these groups of Americans NEVER include the wealthy! It's always the same groups, ie, minorities, women, the working poor and the poor, the elderly and the infirm, children, et al. We make strides and the republicans come along and wipe it all out, leaving us to fight tooth and nail yet again! And the rank and file repubs never seem to get the disconnect between what their Leaders say they will do to get elected and what they actually do once elected! Morans indeed! And all Americans save for the very wealthy and the Corps, suffer for their stupidity! It boggles the mind and staggers the imagination!


because I can't spell sometimes. :yoiks:

15. Oh, yeah, while yer at it, suckers,
you might want to reconsider that SC nomination yer jonesin' for. You won't be able to afford kids, so you might want to keep some options open in case of an oops! or make certain that the Rs don't outlaw birth control period. Remember, Bubba, you get to deliver that wee one yourself--they won't let you in the hosptial without insurance..

18. I"m still in rant mode today.
Edited on Thu Oct-20-05 08:01 AM by Skidmore
Come on, you chickenpoo bubbas. Just exactly how are you benefitting from this bunch of criminals? How's your life really going now? Were you that easily distracted by the waving of shiny little flag lapel pins and hypnotized by the lyrics of "God Bless America" (which, by the way, is NOT our national anthem)? Did the brief buzz you got from drinking vats of neocon koolaid laced with Everclear get replaced yet with the bar tab? Suckers! You done been played, bubbas. How's that hangover? Don't forget to tip the bartenders at that dive you call the RNC on the way out the door.

Maybe it's time to find a new beverage of choice and a new watering hole.

Oh, yeah, where's Osama?

20. Screw You, Freepers!
Yeah, I guess I will add to this. Screw you for making me so depressed because I have to live in your world. Screw you for giving me anxiety attacks because I worry about my future. I hope the Bush Administration goes down in flames. Yes, this is personal for me. Once that sorry bunch is gone, I will dance in the streets! And then I will ask you all, "What the Hell were you *thinking*, voting in these fascists?" Yes, you have a lot of explaining to do!
