Spinster Aunt on Komen Khaos
“Listen everyone, Komen doesn’t prevent cancer, and Komen doesn’t pay for breast cancer treatment. It “raises awareness” through “early detection” and funds “research” focused on pharmaceutical cures for cancers that many of Komen’s corporate sponsors might likely have a hand in causing in the first place.”
Return your pink Kitchen-Aids! Un-dye the City Hall foundation! Rouge pink nipples until they are as red as the necks and political beliefs of Komen’s CEO Nancy Brinker, Karen Handel and Jane Abraham!
Oh, boy, have I missed Twisty.
Her conclusion is killer:
“Komen is the most visible brand in the whole cancer industrial complex. It disguises itself as some big altruistic community effort for women’s health, but it’s really just another conservative, honky organization with a misogynist political agenda. A marketing juggernaut instrumental in raking in piles of cash for and cleansing the tarnished images of its evil corporate sponsors, Komen has successfully brainwashed millions to believe that the “problem” of women’s health can be solved by licking yogurt lids.”
Gretchen Carlsson, village idiot of Fox and Friends, attempting to explain why the poor in America should pay even more in taxes, when they can barely pay their taxes now.
Can she just get off her high horse and her head out of her butt? Not everyone in America is a millionaire. Is she that censored and oblivious from real American reality?
People are losing their homes, struggling to pay their bills, having a hard time and wondering when the next time they eat is. And Retching and her delusional Fox News cohorts think that 47% of Americans don’t pay any taxes? They want the dirt poor to pay more?
What a bunch of greedy stuck-up bastards!
How about they switch places with the poor for a change? Then maybe they would start reporting the news the way it is actually happening.
I still can’t believe they’re bringing out that old chestnut of bullshit and asshattery. 47% of Americans don’t pay federal income tax… they pay federal payroll tax, on their income. Which is paid at the exact same rate, through a different channel. Also, Social Security taxes are disproportionately heavy on the 99%, since they are capped. So, when RNCResearch says that the average tax rate in America is 11%, they neglect to point out the extra 20% that I pay, and most of you pay, and that Mitt Romney only paid on $110,000 dollars, which cost him $13,652.40. In Mitt Romney terms, peanuts. Oh, and Medicare tax works the same way. So, here’s the truth to remember: Every statistic, fact, and figure that you hear from Fox News, Pew Research, or the Republican National Convention, has been doctored into a lie, spun into a lie, cherry-picked into a lie, or it started out as a completely fabricated lie.
