You inherit your wealth from your daddy = successful business man
You receive assistance from a system that you paid into = animal
Check out this Texas GOP Congressional Candidate’s add by former Texas Secretary of State. When watching this add, remember there is a good chance that this guy pays a lot less in taxes than you do.
In this video, Williams complains the the government is “taxing me to death” — which should evoke limited sympathy coming from a self-proclaimed successful businessman who inherited his father’s car dealership. You would also never know from this commercial that this rich politician is paying the lowest taxes since the 1950′s and that Obama lowered his taxes 2 years ago and extended the Bush tax cuts.
Personally I think these rich ‘victims’ should man-up. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a rich daddy to give them money. There is no reason why the middle-class should have to subsidize privileged jokers like this. America, our upper class is becoming weak and dependent on the middle and lower classes – it is time they begin to pull their own weight.
Jon Bruning – “Just like raccoons eating beatles.”
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, a frontrunner to win the GOP nomination against Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE), compared poor people to scavenging racoons in a speech this week. A good Christian, I am sure.
In a video captured by the liberal group, American Bridge 21st Century, Bruning makes the comparison as part of an elaborate metaphor originally focused on environmental regulations. He describes a requirement that workers at a construction project gather up endangered beetles by luring them into a bucket with a dead rat in order to release them elsewhere. But the plan is thwarted when hungry raccoons then eat them straight out of the rat-infested bucket. Which, according to Bruning, is a perfect image to illustrate how welfare recipients receive their benefits.
“The raccoons figured out the beetles are in the bucket,” Bruning said. “And its like grapes in a jar. The raccoons – they’re not stupid, they’re gonna do the easy way if we make it easy for them. Just like welfare recipients all across America. If we don’t send them to work, they’re gonna take the easy route.”
The incident recalls similar language from South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer (R), who apologized in January 2010 for saying in a speech on America’s “culture of dependency” that he learned “as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed.”

Let Mr. Bruning’s campaign know what you think. Perhaps instead of raccoons, welfare recipients remind you more rats, cockroaches or locusts. If so, send him an email, give him a call or tweet him.
