NOT WRITTEN BY ME BUT THOUGHT IT WOULD MAKE A NICE DISCUSSION:

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that
read
"Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.

Once in the
restaurant my server had on an Obama '08 tie. Again I
laughed as he had
given away his political preference - just imagine
the
coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the
server. I explained to him
that I was exploring the Obama
redistribution of wealth concept. He
stood there in disbelief while I
told him that I was going to
redistribute his tip to someone I deemed was
more in need - the homeless
guy outside.

The server angrily stormed
from my sight. I went outside, gave the
homeless guy $20 and told him
to thank the server inside as I had
decided he could use the money
more.

The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific
redistribution experiment I
realized the homeless guy was grateful for the
money he d id not earn,
but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the
money he did earn
even though the actual recipient deserved money
more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow
in
concept than in practical application

I think you did the right thing. The server shouldnt have gave away who he was voting for. thats not what you go to work to do......your a server.

who has seen the comic guy thats talking about sex with his wife at work and then one of the guys ask who are you voting for? wooo woooo your getting a little personal there BOB. Im trying to tell you about fuc$ing my wife in the a$$ and you want to talk about some personal shit like that?

Thats so true!!!! Its a personal decision based on what you know true. Im sure i know people that are saying one thing but they are going to do another so............... vote how you feel.

You're all idiots. Republicans redistribute the money of the working poor and middle class to the wealthy and manage to convince them that it's in their best interests. The current bailout of the financial crisis caused by the present administration will be paid for by the tax dollars of average citizens like you and me while the unregulated capitalists get to keep huge amounts of money made from short-term gains on bad unregulated investments.

I recently read somewhere that EVERY president in modern times, Democrat or Republican, has raised taxes in spite of promises made to lower taxes during their campaign.

dude you mean Dave Chapelle.

Honestly this whole thing is stupid, that waiter is making 4 dollars an hr.
Not more 250K dollars a year.

He wouldn't feel any repercussions of Obama's policy.

Yes. A bum who sits on his butt all day is exactly the same as a middle-class worker. :baffled:

I just don't wanna be paying 30% in taxes when I am buying more crap when I'm older lol
I'm looking at paying 30% NOW in health care insurance living in the only modern country in the world that hasn't had this shit incorporated into their economy for DECADES! I want to spread the wealth MORE, not LESS!

You realize that the health care cost for us boomers (that you younguns will be paying for) is gonna make the current econ crisis look like peanuts? Wake up and smell the coffee folks! If this shit doesn't get fixed (and it ain't gonna get fixed with totally out-of-touch McCain) we're talking about the downfall of Western Civilization as we know it! Capitalism goes the way of Communism! As far as Socialism, we've had it since Hoover, if you haven't noticed, under both Republicans and Democrats!

Lol true, either way were still all fucked.
yeah thats the truth right there. Its like picking a red or blue car this election....the only difference is, one is red and one is blue.

I wasnt sure that it was dave chapelle, I was leaning more towards the guy that said" you know honey rub it in." some white bald guy thats funny as shit. He also had some joke about when its time to cum that it feels like its gonna be a rocket launcher but all you get is drip, drip. maybe im wrong and it is dave though. I know everbodys seen that 10 yr old shit by now. what was that dudes name?

I take it you bought a stupid argument
---- above is why we dont ingage in politics
Because you may think I am saying you are stupid
If you do I am sorry
Btw I am undecided
Hey Randy! How's things in Buffalo? Snow yet??

We like the "undecided" voters- I was undecided until I heard McCain talk about health care in the last debate- Man is he clueless! Hey folks, do your research, try and find unbiased info, those news analysts and web sites that debunk all the spin. And there is a shit storm of spin in the air at the moment from both sides!

Stupidity is buying into spin in either direction.

Hey, it's us middle class dudes that are paying your working class wages (and taxes) to make/fix our shit, not the bum.

Anybody heard the latest Chris Rock routine on HBO? He hits on current politics, and I thought it was great.
