REPUBLICANS JUST DON'T LIKE THE UNEMPLOYED, CONT'D.... The evidence continues to pile up to suggest Republican lawmakers and candidates actively dislike -- on a personal level -- those who've lost their jobs in the recession.... This fits into a larger pattern for the party. One GOP congressman recently compared the unemployed to "hobos." In the House, GOP lawmakers tried to eliminate a successful jobs program. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) actually started pushing a measure to require the unemployed to take mandatory drug tests in exchange for benefits. Kentucky's Rand Paul wants the jobless to quit their bellyaching and "get back to work."
You know what I would love to see? I'd give my right arm to see Orrin Hatch, Rand Paul and the rest of these gutless GOP assholes go to Evansville, Indiana, stand outside the Whirlpool plant that is (but will no longer be) the lifeblood of that American city and call these people "hobos" and "bellyachers" and "drug addicts." Then in my dream of dreams, those Whirlpool workers who have been told the livelihoods and lives of they and their families are being tossed aside for corporate greed would grab the GOP pricks in mob form, dunk them in vats of hot, bubbly tar, toss them onto a pile of chicken feathers, hog tie them to a railroad tie and summarily escort them to the city limits and dump their mean-spirited, worthless prick asses in an abandoned coal pit.
I can dream, can't I??
