Since I already ripped on libertarians (last post) and liberals (most of the others), here's the conservatives' turn.
Why are so many conservatives so heartless? They think that if you don't have a full-time job, your own place, etc. you aren't trying hard enough. They hate you because of things you can't control. They don't give a shit about poor people or any other people. The economy sucks. If someone can't find a job, it's not their damn fault. Most adults who live with their parents don't want to. They want to work full time but they can't. It's not laziness, it's because they got screwed over. Most teenagers can't find jobs. A lot of my friends with college degrees work in retail or other low-paying part-time jobs any high school drop out could do. They're not lazy, they just can't get anything else.
And even when unemployed people are lazy, it ain't my place to judge. The lazy people ain't gonna get jobs. The way things are now, lots of people don't have jobs. I got a job but I don't work as much as I'd like. I'm still glad to have one. I can be lazy but I won't let myself.
Reminds me of the bastards who blamed Katrina on the victims. No, I am not making this up. (Hint: It's because they were black) Snopes.com reproduces this letter and refutes it. Read it and then lose faith in humanity.
Not all conservatives are like this. Probably most aren't. But a lot of them are, especially angry old white men.
