    Care to expand on that or does the flop of the omnipotent one have you at a loss for words?

    It is true that we work harder and smarter. Get over it.

    And we dont spend our money on stupid status symbols like BMWs.

    He should've worked harder to back up the claim. Although he did say that the 1% can afford to hire people to figure out complicated things. Presumably they hire each other?

    Who said the Leftists aren't smart? They're plenty smart enough to get the working taxpayers to pay for their food, money, rent, college, cell phones, baby-food, day-care, drugs, and pimping/gangbanging lifestyles...

    It must be hard work to get all those freebies...

    sounds like you're saying that the 1% is entitled to 'hero worship'.

    Working hard does not guarantee riches. Even working smart doesn't. While no one should be knocked for acquiring large sums of money through work all of the 1% did not get that way from working either smart or hard. Many of them either inherited it or were born with a silver spoon in their mouth. To say "we work harder" is a relative statement. Work harder than whom?

    I'm addressing Obama's voting base... the other liberals. No one here, that I know of, is in that category.

    this. this is what i've been thinking since this thread started, but if i'd have made that statement, q would have jumped in and told me to start a 'coding for dummies' class, or ask how i fund my retirement.

    Well your description would also cover a whole bunch of conservatives who are having taxpayers cover tons of their expenses.

    Don't believe me? Look at the demographic statistics and SNAP utilization map I posted in the "what states are the most religious" thread. That liberal bastion full of moochers known as New York City has the exact same food stamp utilization rate (22% of the population) as good old, hard-working, dark red Polk County, Florida.

    How does this have anything even remotely related to a thread on the 1%. I understand tangential discussions but this one seems off the radar.

    I dont know if you are here in Polk, but its hardly what I would hold out as good old hard working. Lots of white trash and minorities sitting on their asses making meth. I think the 'people of wal mart' pictures were all taken here.:)

    Completely understand, my point to Rick was that the "white trash" tends to vote reliably Republican (although why they do so might be a fair question) and the "leftists" working hard at mooching off the government that he commented about aren't alone in doing so.
