GOP Senator: Voters waste money on 'Booze, Women'

A Hunger Games World
Class Warfare is Alive and Well

  • Sen. Grassley's dumb ass stupid remark just illustrates how the Establishment Oligarchs in both parties have lost all contact with the average Joe who works for a living. Our "representatives" only represent the Elites.
  • Personally I believe we are rapidly moving into a Hunger Games world of extreme wealth and extreme poverty. Technology is abolishing jobs by the tens of millions. Welcome to a Brave New World of eternal poverty, EBT cards and section 8 housing.

(HuffPost)  -  In an astonishing defense of dropping “death taxes” for individual estates worth more than $5.5 million, GOP Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley implied that people not currently affected by that tax are “spending every darn penny ... on booze or women.”

“I think not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing — as opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies,” Grassley told the Des Moines Register in an interview published Saturday. 

Grassley’s comment triggered a wave of criticism on social media. Many complained that the working class is, in fact, spending “every darn penny” on raising their kids, caring for elderly parents, health care and putting food on the table. 

One Twitter user complained that the GOP was turning America into a version of “The Hunger Games.”

Technology leave people jobless ... but bots don`t vote .
So ... words like those from that GOP rep are not PC ... or khosher as you say .
So a few rotten apples don`t are the representation of the whole barrel . If some may be true .It`s unfair .
But is a kind of spin .
But smartness is a kind of quality that those GOP rep lacks .
In your european society , we refrain to put ephitets like that , they may backfire.
So in our socialist society , that indulge idleness by social money trading votes ... poverty is the aim ... as so men and women will be less free ... and so more dependable from the State ... they without notice ... are more lenient to acept modern status of slavery ... trading survival for votes and let go basic human rights as free of expression, free enterprise , and else other century fought freedoms ( the same social soup as nazis did ).
So as technology give gain to the upper echelon of have ones ... the whole major working class are giving crumbs , to stay put ... vote ... and not dare to became illusional on wealth grownth.
Is a kind of radical agenda , well know by Orwell , and denounced .
Those who call themselves the working class spokers , are really no less as their own dream supressors .
Workers must be workers , proud of those skills , not to be downsized on minumum wage by the have ones , or those bureaucrats that serve then.
The fight must be fought on dignity , and ethics .
As so as we all saw Wall Street , and the despots of the world that "put down democracy on their own people ... and the criminals that serve then on drug trade of human trade ... are the really enemies of the working class , and the ethics that a health sound working class are , and must be .
But times are became increasing hard on it .
We are on a brink of a medieval society .Even pre-medieval one .
Only democracy , as always , and the freedoms that she must kept hard at their core , are the solution .
So each and every vote is much more precious than any kind of trade for votes ,
Work, and freedom .So after they vote as free men and women .

The old recipes for alsolut power are always the ones that work.
So the rigtherous must fight those.
So there must not be the appropriation of the other self , as not worthy . Men and women must endure the same status and dignity , no more or less wealthy , or so .
Envy, spinning, lies , and deception, are the real enemies of humankind .And treachery, snitching , too . Really cleaver , or evil people use it without restrain and limitation.
