‎5000 yearsago, Moses said, "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."
When Welfare was introduced, Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land." 
Today, the government has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land toChina.

Yup, those CCC people didn't really do shit, did they? The TVA, what was that worth? Social Security? Give me a fucking break! And that whole winning World War 2 thing? FDR really was fucking worthless.

Today, the government has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land toChina.

The Federal tax rate is at a 60 year low. The massive growth of the national debt was started by Reagan, continued by Bush the elder then ramped up by W. So thanks for that, Republicans.

Well that's a stunning bit of anti-Middle/Working class propoganda shoved out by a rightwing think tank. Do conservative even *get* that dismantling all the common goods programs, including infrastructure maintenance, has been the goal of the mega-wealthy who loathed & despised FDR? No, guess not. First Anon post already covered what a specious bunch of lying nonsense this is.

"Today, the government has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land to China."

Other than the LIE about taxes, this is pretty much true. Yet what do conservatives *propose* to, you know, DO about it? Why: nothing of course other than to whine & victimize themselves... this time to the boogeyman, who I guess is always some dreaded LIEbrul or another.

Yes, the govt mortgaged the USA to China and it began under Bush and continues today under Obama. Do you get it that neither so-called "political party" can be trusted??? And that "both" parties are working league with the mega-wealthy to mortgage *all* of our inheritance to China?

Do you give a sh*t? Or do you just want to wank about it and then feel very smugly self-satisfied bc you dissed a liberal?

What's your *solution*????

If only the United States was still the Promised Land given by God to the Israelites.

If you slag FDR and you don't have a million dollars in a petty-cash checking account, you are a damned fool.

I've seen dogs that were injured bite the people who were trying to care for them.

Same thing.

Everything that the billionaires are doing are trying to turn back FDR's policies, which means that all of the rest of us will be hurt. Why do people support these terrorists?

Looks like no one has mentioned yet that Israel has universal, government-funded health care.

Thanks, Valeyard, and let us not forget that US citizens contribute to Israel's govt-funded health care via the billions in "aid" that the USA *gives* to them annually.

Nice how USA "investments" can go to good universal health care for citizens of other countries, but not our own.

WWJD??

If only we could ship sll of these idiots back to the "good old days" before the New Deal. Or hell, why stop there? Let's ship them back to the good old days before any govenrment regulation of anything in this country.

If the time-travel mechanism works both ways, maybe they can send us a letter (if they can afford the paper and ink, that is) about how awesome things are back there, before thing like labor laws, government regulation and inspection, welfare programs, health care, or government-provided anything. I'd love to hear about how much fun it is to work 16 hours a day 7 days a week, buy contaminated food from the company store, live without electric, sewer, or roads, watch your family members die because you can't earn enough for health care and there's no Medicaid, put out your own damn fires 'cause there are no lazy government-dole firefighters, and all the other fun things that the evils of taxation and regulaiton and goverment programs have stolen from us.
