No cable in my house, and so no Sean Hannity. Sorry. Besides, Fox News is good only for a laugh, at best.

I wasn’t referring to the 47%. That was a number chucked around by the corporate news system.

My 50% represented an inferred estimate. If I had said “sh!tload,” would that have made my point more clear?

If you said you were worried about 20 million working age people not working I'd say "you got your finger on the unemployment problem" ~ the whole 47% thing was based on the thesis that there are a lot of people who'd prefer lolling around to being employed.

The presumption is that being poor is somehow desirable ~ yet, most of us have been poor at one time or the other and we all prefer rich, or if not rich, not poor!

As usual people imagine OTHERS are not motivated by the same things as they themselves are motivated by. That, BTW, is the biggest single reason for losing an election ~ failure to comprehend what people really want!

If you want to be a democratically elected leader you must find out what the people want, then follow them ~ and once you get there ~ counsel them to do even better.
