I found this comment on Huffington Post under the topic: Beck Borrows Lines From Obama 2008 Stump Speech During DC Rally.

Since it speaks to so many of the ideals of the modern “progressive”, I wanted to share it on this blog:

“Joe gets up in the morning and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his coffee. The water is clean because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow he takes his daily medication with is safe because some stupid commie liberal fought to ensure it’s safety.

All but $10 of his medications are a are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance – so Joe gets it too.

On the shampoo label the ingredients are all properly labeled because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body.

Outside Joe breathes deeply of clean air because some wacko environmentalist fought against industrial pollution.

He walks the government provided sidewalk to the subway for his government subsidized ride to work.

Joe’s job provides him with excellent pay, medical benefits, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.

If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed workman’s comp kicks in because some stupid liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of an injury or temporary situation.

At noon Joe goes to the bank to pay bills where his deposit is insured by the FDIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers.

He visits his father who survives on social security supplied because some liberals worked for it.

Etc. ETc.”

    Yeah, Beck you conservative right-wingnut, he isn’t drinking water with dangerous chemicals in it, taking medicine that would make symptoms worse or just outright cause a reaction or side effects that could be fatal-and the prices are what you GOPers love, people be damned that don’t have insurance, the ones that you and your *religious* (my ass!) friends don’t care if 45,000 (truth!) of them die, you and your hateful version of GOD! He’s not breathing poisoned air, thanks to us liberals he has public transit to remove some of those GOP Oil-company-ass-kissing SUVs off the road. He isn’t getting ripped off and screwed by his bosses and has safe working conditions and income to fall back on if he’s injured-although you employee-hating bastards hate the people who have to kiss their bosses’s ass daily. BLAH-BLAH-BLAH! Don’t like what liberals have done to keep your lousy asses alive? OK. BUY part of the US. WE liberals will leave wherever you buy. START your own country! NO aid or loans from liberal banks! You can have your guns, unsafe drinking water, polluted air, no public transit, no healthcare aid, no workman’s comp, no Soc. Sec, no Medicare, no bank regulations. All you get is conservative businesses, corporations, megachurches, bars, gun shops, strip clubs, no black or hispanic athletes want to come there, so you get to have your all-white leagues, and all your parks and recreation are lumber company- and oil company-owned. So you deal with them who gets what. Fair enough? OK.

    Sorry for all the swearing, kstreet, but all this right-wing foolishness still has me foaming at the mouth and chomping at the bit! If Beck has a problem with safe working conditions, is he going to go work at that Massey-run mine where the miners died in WV? Or at least go to ones that lost family members and tell them their relatives are cowards for dying while working in unsafe conditions while the fatboy GOP-Friendly owner didn’t give a damn about them? Nobody in the Tea Party/GOP said a word in memory of those miners because they would kiss the fat rump of the owner who bought his judge and so nothing will change about the danger of that mine!
