Removed what was here because it’d already been posted and I’d just forgotten. So I’ll put an oldie but a goodie here instead.



Go look on the previous page, too, if you haven’t yet!

Some of the responses to the Kruse tweet are also worth reading.

That is a near perfect metaphor for trickle down economics.

More precisely, it's a near perfect metaphor for voters' continual belief that *this time* it will all start to trickle down.

For about half as many decades as the Peanuts comic has been around. :)

Meanwhile in Australia, a Member of Parliament just can't help but get into it with any rando on the Twitter Dot Com. This whole thrad is a thing of beauty.

Kid Wonders If This Is The Year She Tells Her Dad Trickle-Down Economics Isn’t Real – The Out And Abouter

Quote:
“At night, when he’s getting ready to head out to his second job – the one he works in the evenings to pay for our health insurance – it can be really hard to look him in the eye and say supply-side theory isn’t going to let him down this holiday season. Not like last year. And the 39 before it.”

Trudeau Wins Regina Town Hall By TKO After Choking Out Conspiracy Theorist In 3rd Round – The Out And Abouter

Quote:
Showing why he’s called ‘That Otter Guy, No The Otter Guy,’ in his home province of Quebec, Trudeau struck midway through the challenger’s rambling attack on the entire Islamic religion of 1.8 billion people – in which the unknown disputer threw such haymakers as claiming ‘they’ want to kill ‘us’ in a room in which (statistically speaking) there would have been at least a dozen Muslims, none of whom appeared even moderately inclined.

“Canada is a country that was built by immigration,” the PM said quietly, as he executed a foot first leap across the spotlit octagon, gathering the man’s neck into a vicelike leg lock in midair, and taking him to the mat.

“Waves of people fleeing religious prosecution, fleeing tyranny, trying to find a better life, have all came here for the same thing,” Trudeau continued, while the conspiracy slowly drained out of the man’s face, and he flailed about for an unverified news source.

There's a decent sized Muslim population in my area and I occasionally like to keep mental track of the number of times they've blown me up. So far it's less than the times they've held the bus for me at the local transit station.

Canada adds 'will accepting you embarrass Saudi Arabia' question to refugee claimant form - The Beaverton

Quote:
“A refugee is anyone with a valid claim of persecution if they are returned to their home country,” said minister of immigration Ahmed Hussen. “But if that person is also a Saudi citizen whose admission will make the government we are currently in a political fight with look bad, then they are what we now call a ‘Double Refugee’ and we let them in straight away.”
