So I am looking at this conservative writer, and, from the looks of things, his parents doomed him to a life of failure. (This dude ain't dating no super models anytime soon. Just sayin.)
Honestly, if this guy had a billion dollars sitting in the bank it wouldn't help his lot in life, because, at the end of the day, he would still be him.
This might explain why he hates poor and downtrodden people so much.
"Conservative blogger and author Erick Erickson said Thursday that some minimum wage workers have simply “failed at life.”
Erickson made the comment while guest hosting for Rush Limbaugh‘s radio program.
“The minimum wage is mostly people who failed at life and high school kids,” Erickson said. “Seriously, look. I don’t mean to be ugly with you people. … If you’re a 30-something-year-old person and you’re making minimum wage you probably failed at life.”
Erickson dismissed the idea that some of those people may have just been down on their luck. “It is not that life dealt you a bad hand,” he said. “Life does not deal you cards. It’s that you failed at life.”' [Source]
You don't mean to be ugly, but you are. Literally.
This guy better not eat out for the rest of his life. (Spit sauce with just about every meal.) Who does he think is serving him, parking his car, and making his food in some of those fancy restaurants that I am sure he likes to frequent?
Personally, I applaud people who have been down on their luck (for whatever reason) and who are willing to take a minimum wage job --or two--- to try and pull themselves up again by putting in an honest day's work. Operative word being work. That is more than I can say for Erickson and his right- wing buddies who are here on earth sucking up the air that us decent people have to breathe.
But this is where we are with the class war currently going on in America. On one side we have people like Erick Erickson and his buddies. And on the other side we have hard working Americans who are just trying to make it and take care of themselves and their families.
The dope boys are listening to folks like Erick Erickson who demonize hard work for little pay. In fact, like Erickson, they make fun of minimum wage workers all the time. "Man I ain't flipping no burgers for a living. I can make in an hour slinging on the corner what it takes me a week to make working at Mickey D's."
You would think conservatives would encourage hard work. Start off at minimum wage and work your way up. If you work hard you will be rewarded. Isn't that the American way?
That's certainly what Jason Riley seems to be saying in a typical house Negro pull yourself up the bootstrap screed he penned, recently. (Yo Jason, your ideological soul-mate doesn't want anyone to pull themselves up; he says that they are all failures.)
"The minimum wage is mostly people who failed at life and high school kids.... Seriously, look. I don’t mean to be ugly with you people.."
