Yes, I am a featured ” Arts and Entertainment Writer” but silly me I thought that writing about Zsa Zsa and Fantasia was what people wanted to know: Wrong! It’s about the economy (stupid me) is just starting to notice that my mission has changed as people are desperate to stay afloat and Politicians have just decided to possibly send the poor to jail .
I have been deluged by people concerned about their state of unemployment as my posts on the 99ers have proven to me…. And now I have something I can’t shut up about. Some members of the congress may intend to send you 99ers and also welfare recipients to jail.
I am not kidding. Like the Gypsies, priests and Jews during the Holocaust, political parties are coming for YOU.
Read my lips: They want to put the unemployed in jail as if we were living in a Charles Dickens novel.
I am not even exaggerating. Here’s an exert from the story by Associated Press writer Beth Fouly:
” Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino said he would transform some New York prisons into dormitories for welfare recipients, where they would work in state-sponsored jobs, get employment training and take lessons in “personal hygiene.”
Paladino, a wealthy Buffalo real estate developer popular with many tea party activists, is competing for the Republican nomination with former U.S. Rep. Rick Lazio. The primary is Sept. 14.So what do you think of that? Demonise single welfare mothers and others as ” unclean” and
put them in jail. I wonder if their children get to live there too like some third world nations such as Peru would do. We can even set up classrooms for them so they don’t contaminate the ” clean” rich children of New York state.
Make no mistake, my friends, first the hypocritical politicians come for the poor, the old and disabled ( Don’t forget the latest ” Death Panels” scandal) and then they come for you!
Use your blogs, your emails and phone calls and your vote to tell them what you think about their schemes to attack the unfortunate and use them to glide into public office. This is not about Democrats or Republicans, they are equal opportunity offenders, this is about staying a civil society that does not support terror or scapegoatism . Yes, I am sure we need to send the Welfare recipients back to work as well as the 99ers. Biggest shock of all. Are you ready Mr. Paladino, king of the jerks ?
Maybe the unemployed would like jobs so they can get back to work—not prison bunkbeds– and the handouts of condescending politicians such as yourself.
I guess in his wealthy district there are maybe 10 unemployed people so it’s Ok to pick on them.
No, it is never right to insult the poor. it shows a lack of character on his part. He deserves to lose bigtime.
And I hope someday he dies broke and poor for a little good measure–in a debtor’s prison.
Are you ready for your close-up Mr. Paladino, payback and karma is a bitch. Are you ready to stand someday in front of your God with Stalin and Hitler beside you. Because that is where you will be if you continue to insist the poor are “dirty disagreeable people who belong in jail re-education programs”.
I guess the poor and the down on their luck are responsible for all our problems just as the Jews were responsible for the poor economy in World War 1 and 2. That’s his rationalization. What a dispicable man and I hope the welfare people in his state get close enough to frighten him—- that they might do something dramatic— like spit in his face and end up in jail for something unrelated to being poor. That would fix him! .
