Eric Golub, an epigrammatic blogger at TYGRRRR EXPRESS, writing at The Daily Caller, profiled Wisconsin protesters and pegged them spot-on. Many of us echo his sentiments. Here are some snippets:
Leftist protesters are a bunch of crybabies who have failed at life. There. Now that it’s been said, time for more hard truths.
People are often young and idealistic, which is code for stupid. They think that standing in line serving people at soup kitchens will improve society more than making millions of dollars and building soup kitchens.
Earth to bleeding hearts: life costs money. There is nothing noble about being poor. You get tax breaks for earning enough money to qualify for them by actually paying taxes. Cutting taxes for the rich is a way of giving the producers back a fraction of their own money…
Try being one of these top producers. Work on Wall Street. Many of these people work long hours, don’t take vacations, put their careers above marriage and children, and know that at any moment they can be fired because they have no union protection. I lived that life for fifteen years, and loved every minute of it. Regrets are for whiners, also known as liberals.
Americans are sick of whiners, especially phony whiners. Liberals would be barely tolerable if they had an ounce of integrity and respect for the rule of law.
There’s more. Obama doesn’t escape Eric’s litany of truths; neither do teachers or unity. Read it at The Daily Caller. Golub is the author of three books: “Ideological Bigotry,” “Ideological Violence,” and “Ideological Idiocy.” His interests include politics, football, the stock market, and Republican Jewish brunettes.
