Get ready! It’s coming!
My mute, numb horror, watching my fellow citizens prepare to put the madmen who nearly ran the economy over a cliff back in charge come this November, finally broke when I saw this cartoon, which (somehow fittingly) ran on Hitler’s birthday in my local paper–and now I’ve GOT to know: Do guys like you and Rush and Beck (though of course you’re nowhere near their league) get PAID by the super-rich to help transform America into the World’s Biggest Banana Republic? Or is it just 1) a heartlessness so breathtaking you’d see your fellow citizens die because they can’t afford treatment they wouldn’t be charged for in the civilized countries (and it happens EVERY GODDAMN DAY, don’t dare deny it!) rather than pay a nickel more in taxes, or 2) an ignorance so profound you don’t know the poor victims who live under your (shudder) “European Style Socialism” are found, in poll after poll, to be far HAPPIER than us Free-Market-blessed Americans (the deluded Danes, trapped in the very heart of cradle-to-grave-welfare-state Scandinavia, think they’re THE happiest, poor souls!) Or is it some combination of the two? PS — If I don’t hear from you, guess I’ll just go with my first suspicion.
Cool story bro. Chuck, I think you left out some socialist countries, namely the European ones that are failing right now.
Also, the Hitler reference made me lol. Godwin’s Law strikes again!
