Folks we have been treated to a bevy of National type news stories over the past five days that tie together most every theme in these strange times we live.

Is this a case of slaves turning on each other? I can see that from reading the article. Then again blaming hard working Mexicans for one’s own laziness seems to be the fashion these days. If there aren’t enough decent jobs in Ohio one naturally wonders if these whiners ever considered moving to a place like Lucedale, Mississippi, where they can work on a large farm doing back breaking labor for 10-12 hours a day outdoors since the Mexicans have it so well down here in the sweltering heat. I think I’d rather have the Mexicans since they’re not afraid of hard work.

Even better are the wingnuts that are so out of touch they fail to understand why the DSA message is resonating with so many people. As for how we are going to pay for all the free stuff I’m sure they will figure a way, just like the Wingnuts do now. Or if we are lucky maybe they pay for it with taxes and we live within our means.
Consider this an open thread.
