John Aravosis Cries Because He Isn’t Getting a Tax Rebate, and I Play the World’s Smallest Violin

I used to be an avid reader of Americablog.com. But, then these posts started to appear which just reeked of elitism, like this post on the new tax rebate plan that was approved on Thursday.

And rather than being geared towards helping the economy, they’re apparently geared towards redistributing wealth (that would be our wealth) to the poor.

I mean, really, God/dess/es forbid if my parents, who register less than $35,000 per year combined on their income tax form, get a little additional break. God/dess/es forbid that they are part of the working poor doing less than glamorous and apparently highly rewarding jobs, such as getting paid to blog, appearing on TV, doing interviews, what have you. It’s so offensive to think that these rebates are going towards the working class, because apparently, hey there are no worries, no debt, no bills, no tuition fees, no expenses whatsoever…huh, does this shit make sense to anyone?

And our wealth? Seriously, only people making more than 75K read Americablog.com? Don’t be ridiculous! Well, I guess it’s consistent, since I don’t read the blog anymore, considering that I make almost half of 75K.

Some guy living in a mansion in Topeka making $74,999 a year will get his little gift from the US Treasury and you, living in NYC making $75,001 out of a 300 sq ft studio apartment will get nothing

Well, the hypothetical “you” is a fuckin’ moron for living a 300 sq ft studio in NYC in the first place. Oh, let me guess, SoHo, Greenwich Village, Battery Park, or is it a trendy gentrified spot: SpaHa (Spanish Harlem), Lower East Side, Williamsburg, or Bushwi…oh, oh, excuse me, I meant East Williamsburg.

The Republicans ONLY want to help the rich, and the Democrats ONLY want to help the poor. Screw everybody else.

Someone please insult me and give me a $75,000.01 annual salary! Shit!

Update 1/26: He deleted his post, after censoring many comments, banning a few, commenting in a few of the comments, accusing people of being liars when they were only quoting him, acting like a dick when people were pretty much “typing” pretty calmly, etc. Here’s a link to original post
