class war

Stephen Colbert weighs in on the oppression of the rich, who have it pretty rough these days, with all those resentful non-rich who keep threatening to redistribute tiny percentages of their wealth, just like Hitler did. Or maybe the French Revolution, though Colbert notes that our peasants don’t even put on any uplifting musicals. Class […]

Hey, Fox News! You know what class warfare is? Class warfare is not someone pointing out that CEO pay has increased enormously while middle-class wages have stagnated or fallen in real terms. Class warfare is maybe something a little more like this: Workers at a French tyre factory threatened with closure have taken two company […]

We have spent some time during this journey through our worldly vale of tears defending the gargantuan mansions of both Albert Gore and Husband of the Millennium John Edwards. You know, stuff like, “Hey, John Edwards made those kajillions helping people get justice and also eat shit Tucker Carlson just on principle” and “Al Gore […]

How is Queen Marie Antoinette Moochelle Nobumer class warring the poor people of Aspen today? She is class warring them by being too rich, that is how! Because the poor people of Aspen could not land their private jets because Michelle’s fat ass was in the way!

Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post brings us news of the beginning of the French Revolution the War of Poor Aggression. A high-end Midtown restaurant is serving up the city’s priciest plate of pasta — a $2,000 dish of homemade tagliolini complete with fresh lobster and black truffles and served on a gold-leaf platter designed by […]

Wonketteers, did you know that the country is full of rich people with mansions and jets? And that these people are far richer than most Americans are or ever will be? Joe Scarborough knows a little something about wealth inequality — not because HE’s wealthy, but because he’s seen OTHER PEOPLE hoard vast quantities of […]

Favored Romney surrogate (because Mr. Manager Mitt Romney makes the greatest and classiest personnel decisions) John Sununu opened his wobbly old turkey mouth and said some more stupid shit today, because it is “a day.” Sure, His Lord High Hairgel got in a wee spot of bother by explaining exactly how 47 percent of the […]

Question: is the American spirit of entrepreneurship, self-reliance, and rugged individualism so very very delicate that it can’t withstand the weight of a simple declarative sentence? Answer: yes. Yes it is. Luckily, many people, some of them idiots and most of them Republicans, have taken to the internets and airwaves to defend the honor of […]

Here is a number we’ve seen bouncing around this week that really makes us want to fire up the old Yule Log, in the sense that the “Yule Log” is a tightly bound human centipede of the richest hundred humans in America, lit on fire: The six heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune have about $93 […]

Whoops! It is apparently Not Okay as of “since Occupy Wall Street started” for the sadistic owner of a foreclosure mill to openly mock the struggling families it makes truckloads of money throwing out of their homes by forcing its employees to costume themselves as homeless people for Halloween, so Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac […]

The first reaction most decent people will have when seeing these pictures of last year’s Halloween costume party at the foreclosure mill law offices of Steven J. Baum is overwhelming disgust and nausea, followed by an overwhelming desire to storm these offices on Monday and “make an example.” But the employees of Steven J. Baum […]

What are the nation’s nervous mid-level financial managers up to this week? Oh, just freaking the hell out, and making weirdly vague flyers on the office copier to dump on the throngs of protesters outside every day.

As infamous walking cue-ball “Joe the Plumber” proved in 2008, America is top-loaded with dubiously employed gasbag wingnuts who believe they are the economic equals of the Koch Brothers. Each near-bankrupt sole proprietor of a drywall-hanging home-based business that hasn’t had any work since 2007 is now threatening to “stop job creation” because of the […]

What the hell is wrong with Republican voters? Are they starting to realize they’ve been cruelly fucked over or something? New Bloomberg/WaPo poll released just now says this: More than half of Republicans say wealthier Americans should pay more in taxes to bring down the federal budget deficit. Fifty-three percent of self-identified Republicans back an […]

Delusional fast-food merchant Herman Cain is riding around in limousines and trying to sell his shitty book, which is all his “presidential campaign” was ever about, obviously. But he took a break from his self-promotional tour to do some self-promotion with the Wall Street Journal, so he could blame the Occupy Wall Street protests now […]
