Poor People Are Smelly

Republican candidate for Governor of New York Carl Paladino has solved the problem of poverty, or at least worked out the equation:

+dysfunctional families
-hygiene
+?????
-----------------
Poverty!


+poor people
+hygiene
+work camps
+prison guards
--------------------
End to Poverty!

I couldn't make this shit up.

Instead of handing out the welfare checks, we'll teach people how to earn their check. We'll teach them personal hygiene ... the personal things they don't get when they come from dysfunctional homes."

You have to teach them basic things - taking care of themselves, physical fitness. In their dysfunctional environment, they never learned these things."

Paladino cites the positives of moving poor people into prison dorms — they have access to "basketball courts, bathroom facilities, toilet facilities.

Yes, what's lacking in my life is a bathroom. And a toilet. If I only had a bathroom- and a toilet- I wouldn't be poor anymore. I had no idea Section 8 housing did not come with toilets.

Btw, this is not a new idea. It's an old idea. Poor houses were tragic, but apparently some people can't learn from the past.

  1. Off-topic, before I actually read the post: How do you code your blockquotes? In any case, the background image in the quote above is set to repeat. I could help if you want.

    Okay, now that I have read it: Yep, Paladino’s still a stellar-grade idiot. Nothing new or changed, there.

  2. We already tried his plan. We gave it up in 1865. Asshole.

  3. You know what else we gave up in 1865, uzza? That's right, slavery. And you know what happened after that? Lots of poor brown people. Coincidence? Paladine thinks not.

  4. Well, slavery was what I was referring to. In his mind(sic) there were no poor people then, only rich white people, and non-people. That's the way he wants it.

  5. Poor houses in the U.S. didn't really wipe out until Social Security rolled around.

    Wasn't Annie Sullivan raised in a poor house? Or a poor work farm or something? I seem to remember learning that.

    but with recent revelations about James Randi, I think he likes DICKS!

    they are incapable of telling the difference between SCIENTIFIC *FACT* AND

    they also preach a *VALUE FREE SCIENCE* called *POSITIVISM* that ignores the

  8. I almost regret banning him at my blog. It would’ve made be feel honored to report him to law enforcement for death threats. Those are illegal, you know, even from online detritus.

  9. joe you are going to be tortured and executed without mercy, you little idiot...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, yes! Oh, more, please! Oh, the threats! Threaten me, DM, do it! More! Harder! Meaner!

    … Dammit, Uzza’s a ton better at this than I am. I just can’t compare. *slinks off*

  11. You're right, Cynical. Annie spent her Jr. High years at the Tewksbury Almshouse in Massachsetts, one of the first ventures where the state provided for destitute Irish immigrants like her family.

    Then she attended Perkins school for the Blind, graduated and got her first job as a tutor for Helen, which turned into a career. Helen stole her thunder but Annie Sullivan was a pretty impressive person in her own right.

  12. Thanks, Uzza, I thought I had that somewhere in my head.

    For what it's worth, having spent my formative years in a veritable crock pot of theatre, my idea of Helen Keller was first and foremost formed form The Miracle Worker, so she never exactly stole Annie Sullivan's thunder for moi. :D Not that HK wasn't pretty damn amazing, of course. Just, ya know, high school/college theatre geeks have a soft spot for Annie.

  13. C'mon, Joe, DM is just demonstrating the love of his god. Cut the guy some slack, will ya?
    ;-) Spend an eternity with the likes of DM and his deity ... eternal nothingness would be a blessing. I kind of think of it like spending an eternity in a boxcar, rolling down a mountainside, trying to dodge the angry viscious 500 pound water rat that's in there with you. Actually, several, from the sound of it.

    But, Paladino isn't alone in the workhouse/poorhouse thing. And, if you are not among the elites, you are NOT entitled to any dignity.
    The "Luddites" were not so much against progress as they were anti how it was be used against them. It took away their skills and livelihoods, and that loss became a literal high crime as well as a tragedy. Check the corn laws.

    I have actually heard some people, both "left" and "right" insist that the "surplus population" should be culled, and something like serfdom reinterduced for most of the world population. Take away expectations and you take away discontent, they think.

    you know, there was a time - not so long ago! - where bathing was considered something that ONLY the "lower classes" did - only those who performed physical labor got "dirty"; rich people just wore more and more perfume and colone and etc.


    DM; what the fuck. seriously. threats of assult, torture and murder - in an attempt to convert people to CHRISTIANITY?! seriously, read your fucking Bible, specifically What Jesus Said.
