The Soul Man Cometh

We Chumps are not likely to be as pleased as Chucky about his plans for how Joey can spend our money without our consent - before it’s even “deemed” to be “his” to spend.

Of course forgiving student loans was Pocahontas’ plan to win the Dem primary. Didn’t work out well for her, possibly for the same reason referenced by Damon, above - Chump anger:

A man approached Warren with a question. “My daughter is getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money [so that] she doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?”

“Of course not,” Warren replied.

“So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money, and those of us who did the right thing get screwed?”

A video of the exchange went viral. It summed up the frustration many feel over the way progressive policies so often benefit select groups, while subtly undermining others. Saving money to send your children to college used to be considered a hallmark of middle-class responsibility. By subsidizing people who run up large debts, Warren’s policy would penalize those who took that responsibility seriously. “You’re laughing at me,” the man said, when Warren seemed to wave off his concerns. “That’s exactly what you’re doing. We did the right thing and we get screwed.”

That father was expressing an emotion growing more common these days: he felt like a chump.

Yup, that’s us alright, the “chumps” as Soul Man Joe calls us.

“We don't do things like those chumps out there with the microphones, those Trump guys.” But don’t worry, just because we’re chumps doesn’t mean Joe won’t be in our camp:  “I’ll work just as hard for those who don’t support me as those who do, including those CHUMPS with the microphone out there.”

Well no thank you Mr. Soul Man, not only did you not win but I quite got my fill of disdainful contempt during your former boss’ tenure. So don’t be surprised if we chumps are a little bitter and continue to cling to our guns and religion in reaction to the antipathy you and your cohorts hurl at we deplorables – just because we hold different political beliefs than the Enlightened Wons.

And don’t ever ask me again why we can’t all just get along. When people hate you for ideological reasons they are very, very difficult to get along with. And if you don’t believe me, just ask any of those “moderate” Muslims terrorists, foreign or domestic.
