I know that some of you get this, but I'd just like to take a moment to point out that the link the OP provided is satire--it's not serious. "Hugh Topia" is a made up name meant to sound like "utopia": a state of being that the character Hugh Topia seems to find ridiculous. It is making fun of something.

It DOES NOT WORK!

If anything we on the right believe the left wingers are all immoral selfish people who love to reward losers instead of finding a way to make those losers have some self respect and EARN their own food and housing.

Why is it the immoral left always want to protect losers and thieves?

We need to tattoo a big old W on losers welfare peoples foreheads so we will know who is stealing and who is not.

Liberalism kills societies because most of the people live off the other people.

We give a damn about our neighbors, those who actually get off the porch and earn their own food, healthcare and housing.

We need to find ways to force losers on welfare to earn their own keep.

What should we do, shame them into taking responsibility for themselves.

No, the immoral no value left wingers want to KEEP THEM DOWN so they can control them.
It's the liberal way!

Besides, GOD gave us all brains, arms and legs to be able to take care of ourselves and not be stealing from others.


The porch people sitting on those inner city couches need to earn their way or get the hell out of America. Time to put out the loser trash.

Gosh I am getting sick of people rewarding liberal bums for being losers.


Big old W on the forehead would fix the problem just like the drunk drivers and their yellow plates. Lets brand the losers with the big "W".

It is not others fault you did not take advantage of it.

Compassion my butt. Liberals excuses make me sick.

Compassion stops when welfare bums steal my tax dollars to buy more food then they can eat, live in my tax payer housing and have 60 widescreens and cell phones which they should not have.

GET A DAMN JOB AND EARN YOUR OWN KEEP.

At least try!

Cool, you mean like "W" for George W Bush?

sunnydays...you really ought to ease up on the caffeine.


***sarcasm alert***


This entire thread is based on a blog article by a fictional character who claims to have made his money in his 'bong cleaning' business at the commune he supposedly grew up in.

Sheesh people read, comprehend, learn, knowledge is power, a mind is a terrible thing to waste, this satire is SATIRE, and it is a satirical look at the PC world, so really what the heck were you thinking OP, that this is REAL???

from the OP's link:

Hugh's Bio
Hugh Topian was born in Marin County California a few miles north of Sausalito. Hugh grew up in what was known as the “Peoples Heart Collective.” There Hugh was influenced by a variety of new age artists and activists that instilled with his core values of Love, Peace and Sharing along with an enthusiasm for personal transition.

Hugh was a happy and curious boy who surpassed the other children living at Peoples Heart. He was able to make his own dream catchers by age 5 and by age 8 was making money around the commune cleaning bong stems. This is where Hugh’s progressive enlightenment truly took hold when the “elders” chastised Hugh for actually charging for his stem cleaning services. He soon learned that he should work for the common good, not greed and profit.

Hugh continues with his stem cleaning enterprise despite what the elders had told him and in return for their silence he reduced his fee by 30%. This is where Hugh learned the concept of moral relativity. Working for the greater good and sharing is important but the greater good is better served when one caters to their own wants and desires according to how they feel at the time.

Hugh's sexual awakening happened at age 13. The story (though Huge refuses to confirm) was that Grace Slick (of Jefferson Starship fame) stopped by to cop some of the "killer hydro" the collective was known for and took quite a liking to Hugh. The legend has that they carried on their affair for 3 years until Hugh decided he needed to see other people. Rumor has it that Hugh has been linked romantically with several high profile individuals from Linda Ronstadt and Liz Taylor to Nathan Lane and George Clooney. Hugh has always been very secretive about his love life. As he says; "loose lips never kiss again."

Hugh attempted to enter Wellesley College in Massachusetts but was denied because he was a man which Hugh found unfair so he launched a lawsuit and since has campaigned for equal rights for humans non-stop. The lawsuit was thrown out of court 7 times and after a year; Hugh entered UC-Berkley where he majored in women's studies. After a decade at UC-Berkley Hugh decided to take a sabbatical and now plans to finish his Bachelors degree in the near future.

Hugh sees himself as a "Citizen of the World" instead of just an American citizen. His world perspective developed during the summer of 1993 when Hugh worked at Disney's "EPCOT Center" as a Mime. He developed friendships with many of the foreign workers which he maintains today.

Yes. This is all clearly made up, and it is playing on stereotypes people have about liberals/progressives. I'm a progressive and so are many of my friends, and believe me, none of us grew up this way, not even remotely close. The "PC liberal" is a fiction of the right's imagination, and it is sad that talk wing radio folks feed into this, hypocritically, just to make a buck and manipulate people. We could be talking about real issues instead of literally made up things like this.

That's cool. I was just making the point that the link the OP provided was satire. It was meant to be funny, and not to be taken seriously. People need to lighten up.

Another perfect example of how the conservatives on here think anyone who is for helping people must be a lazy loser who doesn't have a job.

They name streets after people like you...ONE WAY
