Feeling Rich These Days?

One in fifteen Americans are now classified as being the poorest of the poor. That is over twenty fucking million people in a country of three hundred million

400 families in this country control over forty percent of the money available to spend..

Do some basic fucking math.

Top Ramen must be booming.

About 20.5 million Americans, or 6.7 percent of the U.S. population, make up the poorest poor, defined as those at 50 percent or less of the official poverty level. Those living in deep poverty represent nearly half of the 46.2 million people scraping by below the poverty line. In 2010, the poorest poor meant an income of $5,570 or less for an individual and $11,157 for a family of four.
That 6.7 percent share is the highest in the 35 years that the Census Bureau has maintained such records, surpassing previous highs in 2009 and 1993 of just over 6 percent.
Broken down by states, 40 states and the District of Columbia had increases in the poorest poor since 2007, and none saw decreases. The District of Columbia ranked highest at 10.7 percent, followed by Mississippi and New Mexico. Nevada had the biggest jump, rising from 4.6 percent to 7 percent.

People wonder why there are protesters in the streets.

Apparently having lobster delivered to your front door with a side of quail wings just don't fucking open your eyes to the family's across town who are skipping meals so that the kids have something to eat.

Oh hell no, they notice.
They also give millions of dollars to their local politician to make sure that school lunches and breakfasts have their funding cut because we just can't afford that shit.
They also cry about those protesters  to those same politicians to keep them out of their gated community's.

I remember when my parents split and me and my brother had hot dog buns with ketchup and mustard for dinner and called it pizza.

I also remember just after that when I was nine fucking years old and taking care of my little brother and making sure he had a bath, washed his clothes and made pancakes as big as a plate for him because he didn't like little ones.

I am no stranger to these things and I damn well thought it should get better if ya worked hard and played by the rules.

Guess what, there are no fucking rules if ya are lucky enough to have parents that make two hundred and fifty fucking grand a year.

The rest of us can suck the hind tit.

If you don't know what that is, you made too much fucking money.

The old  saying is that money doesn't buy happiness but it damn well will if you have enough I see.


  1. And she said let them eat cake and look what happened...all this shit goes in cycles, we are just on the down end of a cycle.

    Too bad those ketchup sandwiches or mayonaise sandwiches are not going to taste any better at 55 than they did at 5. Been there done, really don't want to do it again.

    I just wonder when they will call a state of emergency and put an end to the occupy stuff that is happening, gonna start soon - me thinks some people are getting nervous, especially in an election year.

  2. I get buttfucked out of $300 per month by my health "insurance", And my employer pays that much again. Now the motherfuckers want to rape me for another $30 per month for every member of my household who smokes.

    Now before all the Obammycare zombies come outta the woodwork, what do you think the Obammy admin. would do? the same and worse. After all, Michelle is the "health crusader", even though she dotes on ice cream and french fries.

    Now I would shit can this outrageous "health insurance" if it were up to me, seeing as how I've been to the doc only twice this year, at a total cost of $300. That's one month's premium (my part only) for those with short attention spans. But I am forced to carry this ripoff coverage by the state, because I "make too much money", and would be charged with "child endangerment" if I refused. So instead of being able to rat-hole $300 per month and earn the interest myself, I have to hand it over to a bunch of fucking "insurance" racketeers who bought state legislation to fuck me over for profit. The fucking fedgov will be ten times worse when Obammycare comes full in force. These cocksuckers don't give a flying fuck about us "little people"; in fact they piss on us while claiming to "represent our best interest". Fuck them, they do nothing more than rape me while shitting on me in the process. Fuck those motherfucking politicians, and I got ten thousand rounds of fucking ammo for their asses when everyone else finally gets sick of their fucking bullshit. The day can't come soon enough...

  3. This poverty bs can't be true, not while THIS can happen.....

    Trick-or-treating, 1% style.

    Yeah, that's necessary.

    Via Reddit

  4. I just saw that 40 million out of 309 million ppl in the country are on food stamps.


  5. Nunya,
    That number is bs.
    Do the math .
    148 million people on fed food aid.
    Up 43% since the admin change.
    USDA stats make the point....

  6. Interesting that Craig would trot out the rightwing 'Michelle Obama is fat' BS. CC it would be better if you stuck to the bad parts of Obamacare you disliked instead of Michelle eats ice cream, but I suppose your kind can't help themselves now can you? Yeee Haw!

  7. Grung, "my kind" can't abide a hypocrite is all, and she is the hypocrite queen. I just calls 'em like I sees 'em, and there's nothing "right wing" about it. I loathe Chimpy McFuckwit equally...

  8. Hey, man! Don't take it so personal! I'm just a cog in the machine of industry and war like you. The Michelle Obama is fat shit is a rightwing attack is all...

    For instance Here + The icky comments are extra icing
