The faces of the 53%...

http://the53.tumblr.com/

I'll add my own....(without adding enough info for dogboy to rat me out)

I've been working since the age of 14, single parent household, latch key kid...

No one in my life ever GAVE me a damn thing...everything I have I purchased through income I've EARNED...I had the grades, but I didnt have tme for college...I had to go to work to support myself....and shortly thereafter...a young family...

I've been in my trade for 33 years....got about 20 to go....and there were times I worked two jobs...

I fully realiise that in no other counrty on the face of this earth could I come from near nothing and be able to not only provide a living for my family...but to prosper to the point of owning rental properties to provide affordable shelter to others....I have prospered to the point I can hold my rent BELOW market and keep long term tenents...

I have prospered to the point I can afford a lake property for my family and guests to enjoy in the summer...

I have also prospered to the point that I can do a year laid off standing on my head...

I have prospered to the point where I have to cut the Govt a check for my taxes every year...an income tax "return" is a thing of the past for people like me...

I dont work for poor people....my employment is directly tied to capital investment in property...

I am the 53%...and all I want is for the govt to leave me the fuck alone....

About all that I can say to this:

"all I want is for the govt to leave me the fuck alone...."

Well said, I couldn't agree more, my sentiments exactly, and well done!!!

Pardon my profanity...it needed to be said...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

You are a true superstar. You and Tom Noe (maggie's mentor) should have lunch when he gets out of the slammer. Your family must be very proud of you!

Totally blew it this morning. I could have stuck it to the man. I could have struck a blow for the Occupy Wall Street/ 'I am the 99%' forces when the gal at McDonalds accidently gave me an extra breakfast burrito in the drive through.

But no, I just had to do the right thing and tell the smiling face of McDonald's corporate dominance, the drive-through cashier, that she gave me one burrito too many and handed the extra burrito back to her.

I am such a tool.

Political Championship Wrestling- putting politics in proper perspective by presenting it as pro wrestling.

Coming in January, a political satire about the sorry state of American Politics- Jesusland vs. Progressiveville.

You are a true superstar.

Nope just an ordinary average guy...

You and Tom Noe (maggie's mentor) should have lunch when he gets out of the slammer.

Is that supposed to be a witty comeback?

Really?....is that the best you can do?

Your family must be very proud of you!

Duh.....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

One word..... Slumlord

Two words - sock puppet.

you seem to be a little bitter about the hand you were dealt.........sad...

Doesn't sound that way to me. Sounds like he is proud he prospered and is bitter about others wanting to take that away.
