im going to coin a new word here.
occupationist - hating someone for the job they have
If you say something like, i hate people that work at the DMV or i hate people that work at the post office, you are being an occupationist.
And a little story about hating people at the post office. I remember going into the post office to mail some MTG cards i sold on ebay. I walk up to the counter and ask the guy if he had any padded envelopes. He told me they didnt. So im looking around for another container to mail them in and stumble upon some padded envelopes. I walk back up to the counter and say to the guy "looks like you did have some padded envelopes." He responds "No. Thats a cushioned mailer." Sigh...
Occupationist ... hmm ... would that apply to more notorious jobs like Wall St. bankers (hated by the left) or trial lawyers (hated by the right)? Is someone an occupationist for hating politicians?
Other "words" I've heard but would like to take credit for ...
Affluenza - the condition that you grew up rich and therefore don't know the consequences of your actions. This was actually used as a defense in Texas not so long ago.
Eduenza - same concept only that your excellent Ivy League education makes you think you're so smart that nothing you touch can fail, even when everything you're touching is failing miserably.
My made-up-word of the day is Hypocrat: The rich elderly people who demand their government SS checks and Medicare continue while screaming about government handouts and Obamacare.
well into my cups now, I want to say that you should not miss the boat on a Summertime liquor: Limoncello
equal parts gin/lemonade/limoncello/ice : very simple, very deadly
equal parts Absolute Citron/bourbon/sour mix/limoncello = "adult lemonade" even more powerful
or just google limoncello
Summertime is here!
No, everyone makes payments into a plan and then those who at retirement turn out to be destitute or in need of some assistance get payments. The trouble is the government does not want to remind people that its only for the needy, since that would be costly at the ballot box.Quote: AxiomOfChoice
In what way are SS checks government handouts? You make payments into a retirement plan, then take payments when you retire. That is not a handout.
Sounds like grooming to me.Quote: RS
Actually, something that's always been a dream of mine (or fantasy since it probably won't ever happen?), is figure out a way to solve the homeless problem. Not like a homeless shelter type of thing....but get them an actual place to live, help them get a job/education, the whole nine yards.

Oh for the days of the vast majority of Americans not making enough money to have to pay an income tax and the tax rate being one and a half percent!
