Things that make you look dumber than a sack of hammers

Last edited Sat Apr 16, 2016, 12:47 PM - Edit history (1)

1) Thinking that a democratic socialist is opposed to all forms of capitalism and investment, and wants to turn the US into a dystopian hell like Norway (lol).

2) Thinking that someone with a million dollars is in the same class as those with a billion, and is therefore a hypocrite for going after "their own".

3) Thinking all Bernie's commie supporters should be shocked and dismayed upon learning Sanders has saved a bit for retirement over decades as a US senator.

4) If you think #2, somehow believing a politician with hundreds of millions, who claims she will deal with wealth inequality, is NOT a hypocrite and is more likely to do it.

2. Number 4 is interesting

 

FDR as well as the Kennedys had great wealth and managed to care about people who had less than they did. Interesting to see that you think they were hypocrites.

3. I don't think that at all

#4 is a response to those calling almost-millionaire Bernie a hypocrite for railing against the billionaire class, while mega rich Hillary can be trusted to reign in wall street.

6. 5) Believing ANY investigation into your candidate is a right-wing plot, even

when the investigation arm is both professionally known for its investigations and controlled by a Democratic president.
