Response to raging_moderate (Reply #16)

24. Someone who is closer to me than I am comfortable with...

is a die-hard Rethuglican/Tea Pot, *hates* President Obama, is an open racist, resents people on welfare, etc. Despite the fact that he isn't disabled, he has been unemployed, by choice, most of his working life. (Mooch.) When he did work, it was usually under-the-table so he wouldn't have to pay taxes. Yet, he has somehow managed, at a relatively young age for retirement, to start collecting Social Security.

It just makes me crazy. If someone told him his own story and identified the subject as Black or an immigrant, he would be outraged and feel vindicated in his racism.
