Die, nigger, die


So is this good for gays too? Do they get to pass their beneifts on to their loved ones? No? Is that because you've voted against it Mr. barely in the closet. So how much is the guy you live with getting again, as much as Karl Rove?


This came in the mail:

Check out this Dec. 26 exchange between Reps. David Dreier and Charlie Rangel on Late Edition w/Wolf Blitzer on SS privatization:

DREIER: There would be options that would give a higher rate of return than today is received on Social Security.

And, Charlie, I will tell you, African-Americans would be the greatest beneficiaries of this, as they would be able, with a shortened life span, they would be able to pass this on to future generations.

So I think that the whole notion of private....

RANGEL: So, because we die earlier, we should vest in (ph). The truth of the matter is...

DREIER: It's something that can be passed on to future generations, Charlie.

RANGEL: Give me a break. Give me a break.

The truth in the matter is that we do get more money from the survivors, since the women live longer. And so, basing this on how fast you intend to die -- another thing, I promised the president that I will wait until he comes forward with a plan.

DREIER: Thank you for that.

Dreier is offering the reverse "It's a Wonderful Life" plan for blacks, with no Clarence to save them. It's good to die young, because you get to pass along the private account to your family! Who knew "ownership society" meant buying the farm? It's comforting to know Swift's A Modest Proposal has replaced Robert's Rules of Order for members of the House GOP Caucus.


First of all, the idea that this pissant amount of money is going to be some kind of annuity is, well, a cruel joke. We are not talking more than a few grand. Dreier just placed this in the most racist terms possible: niggers, you die early because we neglect you, don't give you decent medical care and put you in shitty, redlined neighborhoods without even supermarkets, so you should support gutting social security.
