You know how these people are:

It’s only September, but Mitt Romney has already written off almost half the country’s voters. A hidden-camera recording obtained by Mother Jones captures Romney at a private fundraiser telling donors that, “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.” Watch it:

Or, as I’ve reminded you before:

  1. “They feel that they are entitled to…….food.” That’s right Mr. 1% us lazy, layabouts do feel that we’re entitled to eat. We realized that being able to eat three squares a day isn’t a big problem for you plutocrats. But for many of us in the 47% it’s a struggle. You turds in the oligarchy think nothing of dropping $100 bucks for lunch or $500 bucks for dinner. But for many of us louts that’s a months worth of food. So kiss our skinny Democratic asses.

  2. 47% of the people pay no income tax because their income is below the legal threshold, mostly due to the Bush Depression, but certainly helped along by Bain Capitol. Mittens screwed these people using a lot of leverage and legal loopholes, but it was not legitimate rape since they didn’t fight back hard enough.

  3. Ann Coulter saw this coming. Mittens doesn’t know what belongs in the talk bubble and what stays in the thought cloud, which pretty much makes a cartoon of his campaign.

  4. In the same vein, how’s that “recovery” going?

    Is it just me, or are the signs of consumer collapse as clear as a Lowes parking lot on a Saturday afternoon? Sometimes I wonder if I’m just seeing the world through my pessimistic lens, skewing my point of view. My daily commute through West Philadelphia is not very enlightening, as the squalor, filth and lack of legal commerce remain consistent from year to year. This community is sustained by taxpayer subsidized low income housing, taxpayer subsidized food stamps, welfare payments, and illegal drug dealing. The dependency attitude, lifestyles of slothfulness and total lack of commerce has remained constant for decades in West Philly. It is on the weekends, cruising around a once thriving suburbia, where you perceive the persistent deterioration and decay of our debt fixated consumer spending based society.

    Another observation that can be made as you cruise through this suburban mecca of malaise is the overall decay of the infrastructure, appearances and disinterest or inability to maintain properties. The roadways are potholed with fading traffic lines, utility poles leaning and rotting, and signage corroding and antiquated. Houses are missing roof tiles, siding is cracked, gutters astray, porches sagging, windows cracked, a paint brush hasn’t been utilized in decades, and yards are inundated with debris and weeds. Not every house looks this way, but far more than you would think when viewing the overall demographics for Montgomery County. You wonder how many number among the 10 million vacant houses in the country today. The number of dilapidated run down properties paints a picture of the silent, barely perceptible Depression that grips the country today. With such little sense of community in the suburbs, most people don’t even know their neighbors. With the electronic transfer of food stamps, unemployment compensation, and other welfare benefits you would never know that your neighbor is unemployed and hasn’t made the mortgage payment on his house in 30 months. The corporate fascist ruling plutocracy uses their propaganda mouthpieces in the mainstream corporate media and government agency drones to misinform and obscure the truth, but the data and anecdotal observational evidence reveal the true nature of our societal implosion.
