Quote# 90229[Commenting on her own blog post in which she characterized poor people as gluttonous, slothful, irresponsible and entitled.]
Ah yes, those millions of imaginary “homeless vets” of song and story:
If people are “living paycheck to paycheck” it is because they are in debt, usually carrying heavy consumer debt loads. Those people aren’t necessarily poor either.
I’m not convinced by the way that anyone really “cares about the poor” so much as they care about their own self image as “compassionate” people.
I actually DON’T care about “the Poor” – like all sane, normal people, I can about my friends and family first. Real people, not an abstraction based mostly on mythology and ideology.
It’s too bad so many liberals are embittered losers who resent those of us who’ve made something of ourselves. And who aren’t ashamed of writing stuff under our own names rather than hiding behind cowardly pseudonyms.
