I identify with this…

story about how Wisconsin’s budget repair bill is busting up friendships online. I haven’t unfriended anyone or stopped following people on Twitter, discount cialis and but it’s been a close thing.

    I’ve had a couple of friends drop me on Facebook, even before I started stating my position.

    Anybody who bitches about “their tax dollars going to public sector employees” are scarcely better than the slave drivers of the 19th century.

    They want all these people to do work that directly makes their own menial lives better, but they don’t want to pay those people to do said work. The irony here, is they themselves are slaves as well.

    The true slave owners, their corporate masters, are standing behind them cracking their whips in joy simply because they have successfully made the slaves fight amongst themselves.

    Open your eyes or be forever stuck in Plato’s Cave.

    OooooooooK.

    I’ve been forced to end one friendship unfortunately. Sad really.

    I don’t think “pay more for their pensions” means what Walker says it does.

    Debunked, you finally have gone off the deep end.

  • 7. Debunked  |  February 26th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Yes, go ahead Dan, resort to the ad hominem attacks because you’re too brainwashed to see what’s right in front of you.

    And, for some reason, the edit box isn’t working for me… So I’ll just make this addendum in a second comment:

    The facts are, those of us making from 20k a year to 200k a year are in the same boat. We’re left to fend off the scraps tossed down by the minority elite. Seriously, look up the Koch brothers and their interests in this bill causing so much turmoil among us lesser mortals.

    Sure, if you’re making 200k rather than 50k, your house might be slightly bigger and your car fancier, but you’re still doing the same meaningless 8-5, 50 weeks a year for 80% of your life with nothing to show for it when you finally retire and nothing to look forward to other than Alzheimer’s and death.

    And until people finally realize this, the major problems in this country are not going to change.

    That’s why I retired when I was 25.

    Umm, debunked, I don’t think slaves had too many houses or horses.
    And if I work hard for 50 years with not much to show for it other than raising a family who has decent values, that’s fine with me.

  • 11. Debunked  |  February 27th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    Raising a family with decent values?

    Translation: Breeding more wage slaves who will mindlessly support the capability of their ultra-rich superiors to continue to figuratively rape them of the true value of their labors while decrying the attempts of their monetary peers who wish only to gain some semblance of actual equality.

    But, hey, as long as you’re fine with that… Well done!

    But I digress, let’s try to liven this thread up with some levity. Here’s a joke I saw today.

    A unionized public employee, a member of the Tea Party, and a CEO are sitting at a table…

    In the middle of the table there is a plate with a dozen cookies on it. The CEO reaches across and takes 11 cookies looks at the tea partier and says,”look out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie.

    Class warfare is so 19th Century, there, Karl.

  • 13. Debunked  |  February 28th, 2011 at 11:40 am

    Warren Buffet disagrees.

    There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.
