17. They're in full blaming the victim mode...
Edited on Tue Mar-09-04 05:26 PM by Touchdown
Wanna hear it? I'll cut and paste this "proud American"...

"If you are talking about Bubba ... then I'll be happy to criticize. I sat in a meeting when Bubba's blowhards tried to take credit for McDonald's 'creating' 675,000 jobs. Problem is ... McDonald's didn't create any ... that number corresponded to the annual turnover ... Bubba and his 'truth squad' were spinning/lying.

I do not see the "fudge" you speak of. I do, however, see that you are reading from the Demo party playbook.

I wrote..."Forgetting those who just gave up looking for work."
He wrote..."And if there are no jobs in their "field" ... then they should change fields. This is a cop-out for the 'I am a victim' crowd ... the very crowd the Demo's pander to. "

I wrote:..."even though evverybody knows that Bush has had a net loss of jobs that number in the 2 millions?"
He replied..."That statement makes me a NOBODY ... I know of no such numbers. "
to which I wrote..."So living with a job that your overqualified for, and underpaid in, even though it may be part time, or temp when mortgages have to be paid, and children have to be taken care of...that's just the "I'm a victim crowd"?
And he wrote back with the good old reliable YOU'RE A COMMIE! remark..."but you seem to think that we are living in a US version of the FAILED Soviet system. There are NO GUARENTEES. " <snip>

I finally had to give up since a republican moderator let him have the last word and demanded we get back on topic. :eyes:

Edited to make his words bold.
