Bush Logic on the Populace

Both Bush Presidents had the same idea in terms of getting the economy going. They chirped that things were fine and thought if they could con America into believing them, everything would be fine.

It is not fine.

Let's start with unemployment. If you have been out of work for over 18 months, you are no longer counted. What?!?! Because you are assumed to have stopped looking for a job. Sooo, let me see. People don't need to eat after 18 months of unemployment? They don't need to fix their car? Do they just vanish, like the uncomfortable statistics they are?

W. learned from his father. He rigged it so that no really bad numbers could be thrown in his face. Of course, the media wouldn't go to the trouble of actually thinking to see behind this. So it is up to us to spread the word.

Plenty of people are suffering from long term unemployment. They are not lazy or stupid. And they deserve to be counted.

And I know some people who are uncounted that voted for the guy. Why?

"Because Kerry will take my guns".

WHAT? Take your guns? But you can not afford to buy bullets!

"Kerry will tax bullets, and make em even more 'spensive" (hicks can not speak right).

So I leave the room. Quickly. I did not bother explaining to the guy that Bush wants to cut his welfare off, or even that he was on welfare (in Mississippi, according to the rednecks, only lazy freeloading blacks are on welfare. White people who do not work yet pull a check every month are on "assistance").

Go figure. The south will NEVER rise again.

Yeah, what is it with people who vote against their own self-interest? In DC the poor black communitie rallied behind Marion Barry who screwed them left and right. Why? What are they buying into?
