We all know that the homeless flock to California. Probably because of the warm weather and the very easy act of obtaining Welfare.

Dear Stupidest Person on the Planet,

I am homeless Bob. Just because we all show you our middle-finger does NOT mean we are a flock!

It was a satire. I don't understand how you do not get that. Its pretty basic.

It's a little hard to figure out because you are a dick.

Why does your life suck so much you have to try to put me down? Its that classic overcompensating. My life rocks. If you don't get my humor I really don't care. Don't bother answering I already know the answers.

My life doesn't suck. You aren't here for actual discourse. I'm just helping you.

I'm middle income and done feel like I'm over taxed today. So who is paying the taxes to run the country if the poor are too poor to pay income taxes?

[+] -6 points by GirlFriday (17435) 11 years ago

What makes you think that they aren't paying taxes? Many homeless have jobs. Further, they purchase items. But, I don't think you are the slightest bit interested in any of that.

You are so funny at your spinning. Homeless have jobs that pay enough in income taxes to support all the social programs in America. THAT IS A GREAT ONE!!!!

[+] -6 points by GirlFriday (17435) 11 years ago

I never said that they made enough to cover it. I said that many of them have jobs and they also purchase items. Get back to me when you pull your head out of your ass and you are ready for an actual discussion.

You truly are a bashful person. Do you understand that you cannot just insult people to get your point across. Use cold hard facts and listen and think about what they have to say. Understand where they are coming from. Don't insult them and use crude language. It just makes your credibility go way down.

Did you use facts in your disparaging remarks about homeless people? Did you use cold hard facts and think about what they might have to say? Or understand where they are coming from?

I really dislike hypocrites who don't match their words with their actions.

[-] -2 points by America921 (161) 11 years ago

It was by no means an insult to the homeless. People see what they want to see.

When you say "what they might have to say?" are "they" referring to homeless people or cold hard facts. If your referring to Homeless people then that statement is grammatically incorrect and incoherent. On the same token if you are referring to cold hard facts then you used poor words to make your point resulting in a quite confusing sentence. Just want to clarify. Thank you.

You're good at bullshitting. I'll give you points for that.

[-] -1 points by America921 (161) 11 years ago

Well it was not meant as an insult. I understand how you deduced that idea from my comment and for that I send my apologies, but you did not answer my question.

[-] 1 points by JadedCitizen (4277) 11 years ago

No, I didn't. I'm pretty good at bullshitting too. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; I'll let the reader decide if you we're being disparaging against the homeless or not, so there is no need for me to 'clarify' myself to you.

[-] -1 points by America921 (161) 11 years ago

Well you have to clarify yourself. I asked you a question then you must offer a response lest you forfeit the discussion. I would not like to see that, but if it comes to that I will pull out my victory music celebrate.

Party at my house. Its the little things in life.

Plus that post was kinda meant to be a joke. Liberals just don't know how to laugh anymore. So sad

[-] 1 points by JadedCitizen (4277) 11 years ago

I did offer my response. No one said you have to like it. I knew your post was a joke which is why I don't take you serious enough to engage in a serious discussion; hence, the bullshitting on my part.

[-] -1 points by America921 (161) 11 years ago

Well you still have not clarified my question. Did you like it I thought it was funny.

[-] 1 points by JadedCitizen (4277) 11 years ago

I know you got your thing and you love it. But not me, you see, I love it is, because it is what it is and it is says it all, even when it is what it used to be or it is what it will be, it still is what it is...so go do your thing, whatever it is, because I got it is what it is and it is better than your thing used to be or ever will be.

My cat is funnier than you.

Shut up you punk ass little bitch, nobody gives a damn about what you think. You have zero credibility period.

[-] 0 points by America921 (161) 11 years ago

Well if your disrespectful to my point of views, which you most definitely are. Then I feel sorry for you. You should feel ashamed to be called an American and support a movement for free speech. Sad what the world has come to.

Hahahahahahahahaha!!! Are you crying again?

My comment was "income taxes" not purchase taxes. The issue is whether the 1% pay 37% toward the income taxes. Based on OWS postings, the 1% pay ZERO or nearly zero and use tax shelters to not pay ANY income taxes. If, indeed they dont pay the 37% and based on postings that the poor dont have jobs and MOST of Americans cant find jobs, then who is paying the income taxes that run this country? If the poor are not then by math,, it must be the 1%. Either you have to stand by the fact that the poor are unemployed, underpaid then they are not paying enough taxes to run America or they are employed at a level to run America or the 1% are. Which is it?

[-] 2 points by FreeDiscussion1 (102) 41 minutes ago Sorry, you are correct. They have a name. The Obama Homeless Team.


You are a worthless little Koch whore. We are done here. You will never be taken seriously again.

[-] -3 points by FreeDiscussion1 (109) 11 years ago

More homeless. Great, now the 1% will have to pay 38% of the taxes since those people will be paying ZERO. Just great.
