Demonstrating a decided lack of Christmas spirit

(From The Email List That Shall Not Be Named)

I feel so sorry for the poor and starvin' of Macon, Georgia. NOT.

Perhaps Raymeica Kelly needs to turn off the electric heater and the big screen TV (thereby turning off the xBox as well) and then her freaking power bill won't be so high. Maybe she should consider selling them to pay the current bills and hold down the future ones.

Someone explain to me how you are considered "poor" when you have all those toys? I though that "poor" meant you had to choose between eating and rent? That you walked, hopped rides or took a bus rather than owning a car? That the place you lived was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and leaked all the time? I mean, that was what poor meant when I was a kid.

These people are not poor. They're something I've heard called "useless eaters"--they contribute nothing to society, other than keeping the social workers employed. They exist to suck up the excess dollars that those of us who actually work at something useful generate.

Yeah, I'm going to get a lump of coal in my stocking, for sure.

Kudos to the photographer. That picture just had to be done that way to get out the real story. I'm convinced of it.
