(Associated Posers) WASHINGTON DC As the number of Americans hitting hard times and find themselves needing food stamps to survive as hit more than 46 million, a record high, at least one college professor is cheering.
This is great news said the associate dean of the Georgetown Law Center Peter B Edelman The more the merrier. This is how Americans learn the wonders of belonging to the state, a real communion of the people.
Most Americans likely decry a failing economy that places so many people in dire straits, and struggle to change government policy to repair the damage, Dean Edelman assures people that everything will be just fine. The American dream is now a fantasy, government has made sure to relegate it to the ash heap of history.
The economy must fail he says People must learn to get by on less. They must learn to live with less food. We cannot go on driving as much as we want, or turning the air conditioner as low as we want. This kind of greed is what we must bleed out of the system.
Asked if he thought a thriving middle class and an improved job market was a good thing, Edelman visibly bristles. It's all based on greed and self-fulfillment. People must get back to learn to live in the dirt and the crap. They must learn to live in smaller apartments.
Informed that most Americans would not agree with this, Edelman laughed. They will. Little by little. The millions on food stamps will learn that life on the dole is comfortable. They don't have to work themselves to death, they don't need to worry about the next paycheck. This is socialism, they will like socialism. They will like being taken care of.
Fellow academic Amy Bishop, a rabid fan of Barack Obama, agrees with Edelman Everything has a purpose. Obama is pursuing a policy that evaporates the private economy and allows the community economy to grow. As Michelle has said in the past, sometimes it is better for people to get jobs making less money to make a real change in their community. Material needs can be put second and we can all work together to make the world a better place.
As one example professor Amy Bishop points at her friends who operate Mother Jones magazine, which is listed as a non-profit despite being a partisan advocate. They make a real difference, like when they released that doctored videotape to make Mitt Romney look bad she said. You don't have to necessarily give up worldly possessions to make such a difference, after all my friends at the magazine all make six figures.
It is the masses who must the real sacrifice, not the academics and the elite Peter Edelman explained It's easier for them to learn to live a peasant lifestyle since they aren't as intelligent.
They will learn to love Amy Bishop said, her eyes gleaming They will learn to love their government and know that it is looking out for them, so they won't have to.
Ya know, it’s getting so that I have to double check to make sure these posts are sarcasm.
I’d love to hear this is satire, but I suppose it’s not.
This individual would have been happier in East Germany before the fall.
OK, ya got me, but this is stuff Obama and his buddies actually believe.
Ouch! You got me on that one and brother was I getting pizzed! hahahahaha!
I wonder if this moron professor, who so espouses Communism, would like his pay cut to reflect what a professor in a Communist nation was being paid? Or, a one way trip to Cuba?
Having befriended a Czech family before and after the fall of Communism...they much prefer the better pay and higher standard of living they now enjoy in the free market (they are doctors and lawyers) than they did under Communism
Dean Peter B. Addled-man.
Hey Egghead, perhaps we should do away with tenure.
OK, suckered again..
That is the real one
Academia at its finest. This is what parents are forking over 50 to 60 thou per year for so that their little future 99 per-centers can get the straight Marxian scoop. And this from what used to be a Catholic University with great stature.
pay cuts are for the masses
They have infiltrated the schools, colleges, media and bureaucracy and that was their plan
