I’m kinda loving President Toonces the last couple of days. Not because he’s done anything smart, reasonable or Presidential, but because he’s offered himself as chum to his “base.” What a herd of piranha they’ve shown themselves to be.
The mask is off now–the Left hates the rich like Hitler hated Jews. And they have an enormous, childish sense of entitlement to the money you earn.
Check out the weepy bathos over people who have been on unemployment for 99 weeks (they even have a term for them now–the 99ers!). The horror that they might have to take work that’s BENEATH them. I’ve done a lot of work that’s beneath me. Hell, I do a lot of work every day that’s beneath me, but since the pay isn’t, I still do it.
But I’ll do work that’s beneath me for pay that’s beneath me if I have to and be grateful that I live in America where being poor means having to clip coupons, count pennies, rent a studio apartment or sleep in a friend’s storage shed. You can be homeless right now in America and live a lot better than what passes for the middle class in a lot of countries.
Hey, President Toonces, if you want to send the unemployment rate back to 6% real quick: cut off all unemployment benefits past 6 months.
Toonces, you realize, don’t you, no, you don’t, do you? that most of the unemployed are no goddamn way going to get serious about taking a job that isn’t cushy until they have to? That at least a third of the high unemployment rate is because of middle-class morons who surfed the bubble and now don’t want to stand in line for their haircut like everyone else.
And the majority of you assholes on unemployment for more than 6 months vote Democrat, especially now that you’ve officially become welfare bums. They can call it unemployment, but the unemployment insurance funds ran out long ago. This is welfare.
They should kick every one of your asses off unemployment and make you go stand in line at the welfare office.
I’m reminded of Robert Ringer’s Quick As Hell Full Employment Theory: Cut off all welfare and unemployment benefits and people who couldn’t find a job will find one QUICK AS HELL.
I know more than one 99er who QUICK AS HELL found a job when the benefits ran out. You have to be a completely stupid asshole to say things like, “Do you really think that people on unemployment would rather take the check than find a job?” Of course, they would. I’m a reasonably hard worker, and if I got shitcanned and could surf on government cheese for 99 months, I’d do it too. I was quite annoyed when I didn’t get layed off the last couple years, because I’ve always wanted to have time to learn to paint.
I swear the next numbnutz liberal who says that most people on unemployment really want to find work is going to get kicked in the nuts and we’ll see how numb they really are.
Let’s get clear about what would happen if we did end all unemployment benefits after 6 months. Nobody would really suffer. Suffering is shivering with an empty belly while the rain pours down on you unprotected. Unless you’re the most ridiculously misbehaved of the homeless in America, that’s not you. Losing your house equity and credit rating is not suffering. It just sucks. Losing your job is not suffering. Shit happens. There is a huge bureaucracy that wants to buy your vote to perpetuate their power and all they ask is that you pretend to be Helpless and Suffering. Go ahead, keep voting. That’s not going to work much longer. Your bread checks will start bouncing and the cable company is going to turn off your circuses.
Finally, if you are so seriously fucking stupid that you really think that more unemployment checks will stimulate the economy, stop reading this blog. If you comment, I will save your IP address, track you down in meatspace, kill you and cure you for jerky.
part 2 of this post will be more incendiary.
The Rainmakers – Government Cheese
Give a man a free house and he’ll bust out the windows
Put his family on food stamps, now he’s a big spender
no food on the table and the bills ain’t paid
‘Cause he spent it on cigarettes and P.G.A.
They’ll turn us all into beggars ’cause they’re easier to please
They’re feeding our people that Government Cheese
Give a man a free lunch and he’ll figure out a way
To steal more than he can eat ’cause he doesn’t have to pay
Give a woman free kids and you’ll find them in the dirt
Learning how to carry on the family line of work
It’s the man in the White House, the man under the steeple
Passing out drugs to the American people
I don’t believe in anything, nothing is free
They’re feeding our people the Government Cheese
Decline and fall, fall down baby
Decline and fall, said fall way down now
Decline and fall, fall down little mama
Decline and fall, decline and fall
Give a man a free ticket on a dead end ride
And he’ll climb in the back even though nobody’s driving
Too goddamn lazy to crawl out of the wreck
And he’ll rot there while he waits for the welfare check
Going to hell in a handbag, can’t you see
I ain’t gonna eat no Government Cheese
