A question for Boehner and the 1%.. How much is it gonna take?
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 04:49 PM by SomethingFishy
The 1% control 70% of the wealth in this nation. Apparently this is not enough for them to "create jobs" for everyone else.

So I want to know. EXACTLY how much is it you need before you god like job creators actually start "creating jobs"? You've taken pretty much everything, the rest of us are barely scraping by and most of us are working insane hours to do that. So what is it you want?

I understand you are now looking to get the Social Security money and the Medicare money. Will that be enough for you?

Please tell me. I want to know. You want to put an end to "class warfare"? Fine tell me what it's going to cost. This is obviously the only thing ignorant greedy selfish fucks like you understand so tell me..

HOW FUCKING MUCH?

2. They have no intention to "create jobs"
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 05:26 PM by KansDem
30 years ago we were told "trickle down" would create jobs...it didn't
10 years ago we were told the Bush tax cuts would create jobs...they didn't

We were lied to on both occasions.

They want it all and they will lie, cheat, and steal...and kill...to get it...

3. They will not understand EVER. I think of the descriptions of the guillotining of
those who refused to see that their actions had caused them to be hauled off to be publicly beheaded by the people who had finally revolted. Those dolts didn't understand why it was happening to them...

4. They're waiting till we become 'competitive' with third world countries
When we're willing to work for less than people in poor countries then they'll gladly come home and employ us.

8. Those wages couldn't afford us a place under a bridge.
America would be one giant favela:

5. When the serfs build them castles for their new duchies
with alligator moats surrounding, plow their fields, and tend their hunting preserves, it might start looking about right.

6. They didn't tell you that their definition of 'jobs' is limited to money managers.
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 05:36 PM by Kablooie
Lots of those jobs were created.

9. They don't care. They have power.
That is all they care about.

Their approval rating is at an all time low. Yet they continue spouting their lies.

Voting them out is the only answer.

And even then I wonder if the Democrats have the spine to pass legislation strong enough to turn things around.

10. Boehner doesn't care about people's jobs
I don't think that is on their mind.

11. THEY ARE CREATING JOBS! Damn, in THEIR America
creating jobs in other countries is still creating jobs. In the global economy, we do not count that much to them. They will not create one single job here unless it simply cannot be done cheaper elsewhere.

They want a serf society. Get used to it. Then fight it like your life depends on it.
