Conservatives are Stupid

So, I just heard this conversation… Maybe its just these conservatives…

“Have you seen the price of gas lately?!”

“Up forty cents since Christmas.”

“Man, we’re getting hit from every side! Might as well hand over our entire paycheck.”

“Thats what its coming to.”

“Minimum wage $9.20. My wife said he wants to raise the minimum wage.  All that is gonna do is put people out of work.”

“Thats what the gun thing is all about.  Its not about safety its about control.”

“Thats what they want – everyone dependent on government.”

They are totally brainwashed.  I’m convinced that if they tilted their heads to the side their brains would leak out.

Have you seen the price of gas lately?  Have you seen the Oil Company profits lately?  Its nothing to do with Government, you morons.  “We’re getting hammered by high prices from all over… but we don’t want anyone to get paid any more.”  What The Fuck?!?!  Getting hammered by High Taxes?  Yeah, the real tax burden is at an all time low, you idiots.  Hell, their talking point is that half the country doesn’t pay taxes at all, that is pretty low taxes!  They refuse to look at the fact that those people don’t make enough money to qualify to pay taxes and conservatives don’t want them getting paid any more!

I know Republicans are allergic to facts, but they all just need to get a cortisone shot and get some fact-based information and stay away from Fox News for a while.

When the payroll taxes went BACK up to where they were from the Cut that Obama made happen, they absolutely REFUSED to recognize that the GOP preventing the cut from being extended and called it an “Obama Tax Hike.”  No mention of the FACT that Obama is the one who got the payroll tax cut through in the first place.  Absolute Refusal to acknowledge the GOP blocking of extending it.

Seriously – talk to one about it.  The mental gymnastics to blame Obama will put Cirque De Sole to shame.

Now its “The government wants our money.”  “The government has our money.”  SERIOUSLY!?!  Sure! Lets not give the government any money at all.  No Army, no military at all – millions of jobs lost there, but hey, at least the government is smaller, right? – no road maintenance, no free-access interstate system, no police force, no fire fighters.  Can you imagine the “Private Sector” replacements and how much they would charge for those services?

Conservatives are absolutely brain-dead stupid.

  1. The profits from the oil companies have little to do with the price of gas. They aren't spending money on finding more oil, they did that several decades, so they have more profit.

    Price of gas is taxes, and commodities market. Ie people are playing on it. It is also lack of refineries.

    Raising the minimum wage is a bad idea. It gives 6 months worth of gain for poorer people, but increasing prices on everything else. So the conservatives are right there. Their brains aren't leaking out. It also hurts small business owners vs the larger businesses. Small businesses aren't just mom and pop stores btw. Small business employ most of america.

  2. Okay, so your theory is that the oil companies and refineries give the oil and gas away for free – which is the only way profits wouldn't figure in to the price – and that Wall Street is driving the price up, because gas taxes don't change on a daily basis. Also that Oil Companies aren't looking for more oil and all the cries to open up more public land to exploitation is just empty rhetoric.

    I don't think that would hold up to logical scrutiny.

    As for the minimum wage – prices for everything are already going up – without any corresponding rise in wages. The only thing rising is company profits. Wages have not been keeping pace with inflation since at least the 1980's. So, the Con-Men are wrong.

    Try thinking things through instead of just regurgitating Fox News propaganda.
