Skip to comments.President Obama, Send Your Deadbeat Supporters to Wash My Car (Excellent Article)
Posted on 01/26/2015 4:26:14 AM PST by Kaslin
My car needs washing, and frankly Id prefer that the losers who think Obamas free community college idea is super awesome get off their lazy hindquarters and wash it for me for free. Sure, I could pay for it myself, but then Id have to forgo things Id rather have. Its cruel and inhuman and, Im guessing, both racist and phallocentric, to force me to prioritize how I spend my money. So, Mr. President, I need you to direct your minions toward my reserved parking space because, in the words of noted jurist and personal hero Judge Elihu Smails, I want it creamed and buffed with a fine chamois.
Im just going with the flow here. Apparently all thats needed to get something these days is to unleash your inner wanting and hack politicians will start promising to provide it for free. In the dark, wicked past, things like fine touring sedans and reserved parking spaces as well as community college degrees came after one put forth something called effort. Effort is a word that describes the means by which the people called upon to subsidize lay-about Democrat-voting losers acquire the money the liberals seek to plunder. But today, we have legions of over-schooled, under-wise, neckbeards voxsplaining to us about how demanding they expend effort before they get stuff is really just discrimination.
Yes, it is. Life, using effort as a metric, ruthlessly discriminates between the lazy and those who have stuff. I am super comfortable with that.
I could go on a long diatribe about all the burgers I flipped and the toilet stalls I mopped over my nearly 35 years of work, but I dont need to justify my right to my own property or the fruits of my labor. Its mine, not the liberals. Thats all that matters whether I got what I have because I built a company or had super rich parents who handed it to me or because I won the lotto is, frankly, none of anyones business.
Whats mine is . . . mine. Not yours. Go get your own. Keep your grubby mitts off mine.
Im always fascinated when some moral illiterate whos still sponging off his mommy labels as selfishness my unwillingness to give him my hard-earned money just because he really, really wants it. Not that it matters again, its mine, so if I want to be selfish with it thats my prerogative. If you want the same prerogative, get your sorry tail behind a cash register and start selling people Big Macs.
I refused to listen to President Bottomless Pieholes speech the other night, but I understand that he pointed out some Potemkin villager as his example of an oppressed prole trying to survive in the living hell that is the America he has led for the last six years. He lamented that Ms. Julia Potemkin worked hard, but darn it, didnt have the money left at the end of the month to take a vacation or get a new car. Now, how did he come to the conclusion that this is a bad thing? People who are financially squeezed shouldnt take vacations or drive new cars. Thats not a problem to be solved. Its an example of thrift to be applauded.
To the extent the situation Ms. Julia Potemkin finds herself in is even a problem at all, it is not for the President or anyone else to address. Hey Julia, youre a grown woman, at least chronologically. Figure it out. Want a nice vacation? Work more hours, or get a better job. Save money by canceling cable, or cooking at home. Maybe you could do what I did for years as I built my law firm and just not take a vacation. I dont know what the answer for you is, and I dont care. Youre a grown women. If youre unhappy, figure it out.
I do know one thing the answer is not to come to me and tell me I should subsidize Ms. Potemkins decisions by giving her my money. Thats money I got through my decisions, like my decision to spend years working three jobs (lawyer, writer, Army reservist). You know why I have a nice car? Because I made a bunch of decisions that let me get a nice car without asking anyone else to contribute a dime.
A lot of people want their college paid for, but they really dont want to do the things consistent with buying yeah, education is a commodity a degree. Their bright idea is to have mepay for it. And its a terrific idea for them. Funny how that always happens. Oh, and besides being selfish, Im also short-sighted because it would do all sorts of vague, unspecified good for society if everyone could get babysat for another two years past their terms in the Democrat-unionized K-12 moron factories.
Well, since apparently the government now exists to fulfill every transitory whim, I want in. I want my car washed, and I guess that leaves only one alternative, since I dont want to pay for it. You people who think its A-OK to divvy up my money which is really my time in dollar form need to get up off the sofa, put down that Xbox controller, and pick up a sponge. Wax on, wax off. Get buffin.
Hey, dont be selfish. Think of the benefits to society that would come from me a demonstrated job creator if I was liberated from the tyranny of having to get my car washed. What, you still dont want to? What about society? Why are you so greedy?
Well, Ill make you a deal. I wont ask you to subsidize my life decisions and you wont ask me to subsidize yours. Yeah, that will mean tough choices. Youll have to choose whether you want to work to earn the money to afford community college or whether you want to work and prosper without a degree by gaining another skill. Heck, you can even choose to learn no real skill at all. But have no fear if you do. As the great Judge Smails sagely observed, the world needs ditch-diggers too.
I am totally in favor in giving, in charity, in sharing, AS WE CHOOSE. God say for us to share, I’ll share. That’s my place. But I’ll be *#$*@! if the government is going to take it from me and share for me, as they wish.
It’s not a lie, is it?
I’ve taken to laughing at pretty much everything this administration says. They take any situation and say the exact opposite of what’s true. I’m amazed every time at how they come up with the stuff they say.
And their toadies in the MSM lap it up and pass it on.
One observation: The numbers of people that agree with the subject of his diatribe grow every year...
I found it amusing when the OWS squatters tried to set up “communes” where no one had personal property - it was all communal property to be shared by all based on need. Wasn’t long before phones, computers, clothes and food started disappearing. The disappointment of the “well intentioned” was schadenfreude at its finest.
It's easy to grin
When your ship comes in
And you've got the stock market beat
But the man worthwhile
Is the man who can smile
When his shorts are too tight in the seat!
The world needs ditchdiggers too, son.
How about a Fresca?
I've sentenced boys your age to the gas chamber Danny. Didn't want to do it... I felt I owed it to them.
Me too. But a lot of people still take them seriously.
Notice that the car washers are white.
I need my lawn mowed, too, while you’re at it.
‘Free education’ for lazy people is not the prize... it’s the BOOBIE PRIZE... but they don’t GET IT!
“.......a lot of people still take them seriously”.
They must have rooms full of these “useful idiots” who sit around thinking up these gubmint scams. There has got to be a way to head them off at the pass.
If you don’t have the brains to obtain the relatively cheap community college education today, why would we have any confidence as a society that you’d do anything beneficial with it if it were free?
The only possible outcome is that it will completely dilute the current value of such an education.
