Belaboring the Obvious

Oh, yeah, California is...

... pretty much fucked, and because they did it all to themselves. They wanted to prevent any new taxes on wealthy people because a whole bunch of dumb fucks in California thought they'd be wealthy one day.... Fooled you, suckers.

The truly wealthy will skate right through these difficulties while the poor and lower middle will just be stuffed up the assholes of the rich, mostly because they thought that a ten-dollar increase in their taxes was excessive, when it actually meant a ten-thousand-dollar increase on the filthy rich.

I guess an awful lot of those California libertarians had the same response to the "The Grapes of Wrath" as George W. Bush:

President George W. Bush was introduced to the film "The Grapes of Wrath" as a student at the Harvard Business School, where he got admitted on his family's name. "I wanted to give the class a visual reference for poverty and a sense of historical empathy," macroeconomics professor Yoshi Tsurumi told a researcher for Kitty Kelley's book, "The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty."

"George Bush came up to me and said, 'Why are you going to show us that commie movie?'" Tsurumi recalled. "I laughed because I thought he was kidding, but he wasn't. After we viewed the film, I called on him to discuss the Depression and how he thought it affected people. [Bush] said, 'Look, people are poor because they are lazy.' A number of students pounced on him and demanded that he support his statement with facts and statistics. He quickly backed down because he could not sustain his broadside."

The incident and a semester of exposure burned into Tsurumi's memory a disturbing view of the future president. "His strong prejudices soon set him apart.... Most business students are conservative, but they are not inhumane or unprincipled. George Bush came across as totally lacking compassion, with no sense of history, completely devoid of social responsibility and unconcerned with the welfare of others."

They really believed this hybrid Yankee-Houston asshole and all his rich prick friends were right. Fuck `em all. Too bad they're going to take down the poor and dispossessed with them. Jerks.

If you're in California and you think Prop. 13 was the cat's ass, well, as your bud Tom Friedman says, "suck on this."

You've had decade after decade of rich, rich, rich fuckers telling you, the not-quite-poor white people in California society, "you, too, can be as rich as I am, if only you, too, could fuck with the legislative process with money in the same way I did, but, frankly, you're too stupid to figure out how to do that compared to me, because you're just whining about the niggers while I'm buying ads with your money to get you to vote for me because I know you'll vote for me if I tell you you're right to whine about niggers," as if it were a goddamned infomercial.

And, that's nowhere more true than it is in California. You've been played, over and over, by the wealthy fuckers, Californians--including the asshole movie stars you keep voting into the governor's office--like Reagan and Schwarzenegger.

You keep fucking yourselves, and blaming someone else. As your doofus governors keep telling you, "it's the American Way."

How does it feel, Californians, to be dumber than the dumbest politician on the public payroll--and that you voted for the neuron-deprived little prick because he promised he wouldn't raise your taxes, when he really meant he wouldn't raise taxes on his rich friends?

And you fuckin' fell for his routine?

`Nuff said.
