Hey, if they weren't smart enough to get in on the government job bubble before it burst, too bad for them right? Some animals are more equal than others.

Well.....fair is fair

Why should that Harvard MBA who works 60 hour weeks have a nicer home than any of the people you just mentioned?

Hey, you got that Ph.D. fair and square. You earned your right to siphon taxpayer money dedicated to pointless research and look down on "teabaggers". That sheepskin says you can.

I just love it when a bunch of grown ups cry and moan about what a working person makes while thieves like the Koch Bros wallow in inherited un-WORKED for moolah and screw the very people that defend them!

Not only that, but when the government gives away corporate SUBSIDIES, these Joe-the-plumber-types think that kind of re-distribution of wealth is just okey dokey!

WoW! Who da thugs again????

If this was some executive making $600,000 and anybody on the left even hinted that maybe that was a bit too much we'd be accused of being jealous

I've said it before. The cons will never complain about millionaires or billionaires making a lot of money but will whine and complain when a regular working guy makes "too much"

They worship corporations and the rich, and hate working class Americans. You see this over and over in their rhetoric.
Nooooo. Just getting bent out of shape about folks that earn a pretty good wage, demand more, invoke the "children" whenever they're threatened with having to contribute to their own pension, and then they themselves stomp all over those children. Proving that they could care less about the kids.

Got it?

No leftwing economist. History has proven it, time and again. But that goes against the me, me, me liberal agenda. Can't keep the masses controlled if they don't owe their existence to you.

Here's the difference: when those millionaires are threatened with a loss of revenue, they don't leave disabled children to fend for themselves.
