    “Can’t they go to bed much earlier.”

    Some teenage boys have what amounts to a sleep disorder. They *can*not* go to sleep early, and, no matter what time they go to bed, waking up early is agony. (And no, that’s not hyperbole. I’d rather get into the ring with Mike Tyson than go through that again.)

    “People who do well - and you don’t know anything about me, btw”

    You have revealed quite a bit. In my 6.3 decades of watching this show, I have learned to size people up.

    “are just winners in the great lottery then. Or maybe they stole from the poor.”

    I have said nothing of the kind, nor do I think that. I respect hard work. What you don’t understand is that for many people, great effort results only in failure, with no moral transgression on the part of the individual involved.

    “I don’t blame the poor.”

    Buncombe. You sit in arrogant judgment of people who have failed in life, or are currently in a state of failure, and obnoxiously deny that they tried just as hard as you.

    “You evidently blame those not poor, though.”

    Now you’re just making things up. Shame on you.

    I don’t blame you for any good things that have happened to you, or for any achievements you worked hard for, or any kind of success.

    I do blame you for your attitude toward those who might be termed “poor but honest.” You insist that they could achieve the same level of success as yourself (appx.) if they only tried, and the reason they don’t try is that they are morally depraved.

    You never answered my question: are you a woman?

    “Go back to your Marx primers and leave good people alone.”

    You failed to carry on a discussion of a philosophical and economic nature without resort to insult, and you think you’re good people?

    I won’t make that judgment, but your conduct in this thread has not been up to the standards one hopes for.

    “You’re more annoying and puerile than sentient, and it insults me to be in the same conversation with such a one-cell.”

    Yes, insult my intelligence, because I’m so insecure about that.

    Since I have no knowledge of his motives, and since I have no reason to think ill of him, I might speculate that these are the things that matter to him—and, indeed, to me—and so he is motivated to share them.

    I feel that way myself sometimes. A couple of days ago I posted a Catholic Caucus thread regarding a 13th century prayer, knowing full well that it would be of interest only to a limited set of FR posters.

    “First, the President should take swift action to ensure that migrant children with parents or other immediate relatives in the U.S. are not torn away from their families and sent back to Central America.”

    Aroint thee, knave.

    The president should take swift action to ensure that illegal alien children, even those with parents or other immediate relatives in the U.S., bloody well *are* torn away from their families and sent back to Central America. Unless these relatives are themselves aliens and violated the law to get those children here, in which case the relatives should be deported with the children.

    We need to engage in a veritable orgy of deportations, until no illegal aliens remain. Then we can start taking a hard look at green cards.

    “The First Great Depression was not as bad as today”
    >You are factually incorrect.

    You’re as wrong about that as you are about the existence of “plots” of jobs. I’d advise that you at least open the drapes and have a peek through the picture window.

    “Look families raised their children for thousands of years without needing preschool.”

    I think you have become confused as to who is who. I have never argued that preschools are a good thing; only that they are a necessary evil for people who are so far out of your social circle that you don’t even suspect their existence.

    “but the ‘failing to find a job’ is nonsense”

    Sometimes one just has to gaze in amazement. Christian scientists declining medical care, muzzies with four wives, this...You’d better pull your head out and see what’s going on.

    “I had to return to work recently.”

    So, uh, something just occurred to me: are you a woman?

    “I had to change my resume.”

    There are tens of millions of people in America who have *never* had a resume, because they would never apply for a job that requires one. This, according to you, is because they are bad people who feel entitled.

    “I had to hit the streets. I had to go to places and ask if they were hiring. AND most importantly I had to take a job outside of my field.”

    Unless something happens to pull us out of this depression, the day will come when all of that will net you nothing but heartache.

    “This is what people used to do.”

    Oh, I say, we are grand, aren’t we? ‘Oh, oh, no more buttered scones for me, mater. I’m off to play the grand piano’.

    My word, try—just try—to comprehend that there are people who have done all those things for freaking *years* without even a nibble. And not just a few losers. Once again, tens of millions of people.

    The America you seem to be living in no longer exists in mankind’s shared reality.

    “It is only when you have 99 weeks of unemployment that people feel entitled.”

    99 weeks, eh? So why do people who have been out of work for almost a decade feel entitled?

    “Do some serious reading about the 1920s and 1930s in this country and learn a thing or two.”

    I know quite a lot about those two decades. A lot of it I got from people who lived through it.

    But why bother? You’re not even living through *this* decade.

    I’m checking out of this futile conversation. I hope reality won’t be too brutal when it comes knocking at your door.

    “I have no idea of why you are blathering on.”

    Well, I *was* trying to discuss the issue in a calm, courteous manner.

    “People chose to live in a certain manner.”

    That may be the single most ignorant thing I have seen anyone post on FR. Ever.

    “One does not NEED fancy cars, big houses, private school, private lessons, lots of paid for activities.”

    Wow! Are you ever out of touch with what’s going on in America.

    I know people who don’t have gas to take their kids to school—three miles. And no, they didn’t waste a nickel.

    “My parents survived the Dust Bowl and the Depression”

    And mine. So?

    “(the real one not the one that is going on now).”

    Howls, Bruce. Howls of derisive laughter. This depression is already much worse than FDR’s by every measure except public awareness.

    “There are plenty of people who don’t earn the big bucks”

    There are over 90 million people today who don’t earn any bucks, and it’s not because they don’t want to work. Evil men have imported cheap labor to drive these Americans out of work.

    “and maybe dad has to work three part time jobs”

    Dad can’t work three part time jobs because dad can’t find one part-time job. Every one he applies for goes to an illegal alien or the boss’s accomplice in sodomy.

    “The idea that you CAN”T make it one income is false narrative designed to break up the nuclear family.”

    Wrongheaded and wronghearted. Not only are tens of millions of Americans unable to find full employment, most of that group are unable even to find part-time work. Illegal aliens have those jobs, not Americans.

    “All the excuses you keep throwing out are just that ....It is not easy to do the right thing.”

    Wake up. Reagan isn’t president any more. We’re in a deeper depression than FDR ever achieved, and MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED MILLION AMERICANS ARE OUT OF WORK.

    “Why are BABIES ( because that’s what 3 and 4 year olds are) being sent to ‘preschool’ at all? Why aren’t these precious little ones being taken care of by parents or grandparents?”

    Some people have to work.

    “People will pay others to take care of their own but then tell me it is too hard to live on one income.....Learn to budget.”

    Okay, you budget $7.25 an hour for 25 hours a week, and see how well you do. And if you think that’s easy, maybe you should put some time into teaching these people how to do it. Or, perhaps, you could undo all the mistakes they’ve made and get them into Harvard.

    There are over 100,000,000 people on welfare. That’s pushing a third of the population, much worse than the First Great Depression. Over 90 million are out of work. And those that are working average 23% less pay than they did before the 2008 recession.

    The situation is different than it was when FR was established. There were jobs then.

    Vladimir Illych Lenin said that the way to destroy the middle class is to grind them between the twin millstones of taxation and inflation. Sound familiar?

    Leftards have long known that the US would not fall to fascist slavery until the middle class was destroyed. We are at just that point in history. The middle class is circling the drain, and those who were in previous epochs known as “poor but honest” are drowning in Chairman Maobama’s depression—created through the same policies FDR used to accomplish the same thing.

    WWII saved FDR from going down as our worst president, and it saved the middle class from going down entirely.

    Fun Depression Facts: FDR’s first great depression was created using the same leftist policies that the Kenyan Cretin used to create this one. Take one garden variety recession, apply the policies of the limey poofter John Maynard Keynes, may he burn in Hell, rinse and repeat.

    The thing that scares me is that the shitbird currently profaning the Oval Office may be thinking that a war is the only thing that can save him, just as it did FDR.

    They do have at least one person working there who needs to be fired—by the parents, because the leftards are certainly not going to do it.

    "Brown is a former Jesuit seminarian, so we know where at least one Catholic stands."

    Yeah, and Timothy McVeigh used to be a Catholic, too.

    And don't forget that *everyone* who did *anything* bad in the centuries leading to the protestant heresy was a Catholic, so we can drag them in, too.

    Here's a joke for you:

    There were a couple of merchants who were friends, one a Catholic the other a Jew, and they were in constant discussions as to the superior nature of their chosen religions.

    At the time--around the 13th century--Christianity was on the rise, and the Jewish merchant was constantly amazed at the stream of conversions. The two friends attempted to convert each other, but neither could succeed.

    When on one occasion the Jewish man was planning a trip to Rome for business, he told his Catholic friend in a bit of an joking way that if what he found in Rome could convince him of the superiority of the Catholic church, he would convert.

    Upon hearing this, the Catholic man was fraught with fear, as the Rome of that period was as corrupt as could be. Bishops and Priests were selling dispensations and indulgences, while themselves participating in drunken debauchery and whoring. However, the Catholic merchant said nothing about this to his friend, hoping that he might not observe such things during his trip.

    The Jewish merchant made his trip, and upon his return came to his friend and stated that he would convert to the Catholic Religion. His friend was perplexed, and asked what had been the determining factor. The Jew then went on to describe the worst excesses of a corrupt era. The Catholic man was shocked at what he heard, and asked his friend why he would want to convert in the face of such corruption. The Jewish man said, “Only through divine intervention could the Church survive the depredations of such corrupt men.”
