To the DUmmies at DU who are angry because they aren't getting everything "free" work is simply a "curse" and something they shouldn't have to to.Star Member tk2kewl (10,808 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
If I hear one more rich fuck talk about the dignity of work...

My head might explode.
I want to know...
how many 50 lb bags of cement Mitt or any of his boys have ever heaved up onto their shoulder to carry anywhere?
how many squares of asphalt shingles have they carried up a ladder onto a roof?
how many night shifts have they pulled?
has a RMoney ever even pushed a lawnmower?
or shoveled snow?
swung a hammer?
turned a wrench?
sanded a piece of wood?
have any of these fuckers ever mended a pair of socks?
or patched the knees of their kids pants?
Work does bring dignity, so long as that work is appreciated and rewarded by society.
I don't need to be lectured about the dignity of work by some jackass for whom the word callous describes their economic policies rather than the effect "dignity" has on ones hands!
Rmoney or some variation is DU's most recent slur against the Romneys. It says more about the hatred and resentment that DUers have about someone who happens to have more than then do than about the Romneys.
They're mad when a wealthy conservative works when they don't HAVE to, and they're mad when they don't work when they don't have to.el_bryanto (2,369 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
25. Hmmmm. Well I guess there's a few questions here
But first of all -my issue is that Romney never needs to work, and the stuff he does to earn his money is societally destructive. And that's the key thing; most American's aren't in that position. You either go to work or you go hungry. Working because you gotta work is a whole different lifestyle from working because you want to work.
I guess my other question is that the line between being a taker and a giver is pretty nebulous in a lot of cases; like say people who work in Human Resources. Are they takers? or Givers?
it is somewhat more clear in Romney's case, I admit.
Of course they consider that any conservative who has money didn't earn it honestly. But if it's a liberal they are exempted from criticism.

4. The wealthy fuckwads who spew this shit
when the only "work" they have ever done is steal with a computer, a phone or a pen should be marched to the tumbrels at the point of pitchforks and torches and sent to the scaffold.What is it? The top 10% pay 40% of the taxes and the bottom 50% pay NO TAXES? Willful ignorance due to hatred of those that have more money than they do is all it is.Initech (31,432 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
11. George Carlin was right.
The rich make all the money, pay none of the taxes. The middle class pays all the taxes, does all the work. And the poor are there just to scare the shit out of the middle class - keep them showing up at those jobs!!
I'm ready for the revolution at this point.
The irony. Of course the picture IS NOT of Obama who has played more golf than Romney or any other conservative president or politician.Baitball Blogger (635 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
17. That's being very disrespectful.
You know, you sweat when you play eighteen holes of golf.
