Trailer Park Common Sense (Kat-Mo)

Saturday night I was watching Fox News (go figure) and caught three morons (no relation to anyone here) and one half way decent lady talking about this election season being rough. Two Democrat talking heads were going on about the alleged racism of the McCain campaign. Their point is that, of course there is racism and McCain's campaign is catering to it. Just exactly who is Palin talking to anyway when she's talking to "Joe-Six-Pack"?

Isn't she talking to all of those low-brow, low wage earners who live in trailers, drink beer, watch Fox News on their 10 year old tv and think its amusing to burp the alphabet? After all, isn't that the only people who would be so crass as to disdain the Obama-messiah, going against the historical destiny of our nation to elect the first black president?

You know, my grandpa was kind of like Joe Biden's dad. He was always saying really homey, cool stuff. Like, "Girly," he always called me "girly" because I'm a girl. He'd say, "Girly, if you're gonna be arrested for stealin' a pack of cigarettes, you might as well steal a carton."

It's time that all the AoSHQ people came out of the closet and admit it. You live in trailer parks and drink beer. Or, at least, you have visited a trailer park or even driven by one a couple of times. You have definitely drank a beer or some other alcohol related beverage once in your life. Even if it was only communion wine at some friends wedding.

Of course, you support McCain. He is married to the ultimate queen of Joe Six Pack: the heiress of a beer distributor. That fact alone makes Cindy and John McCain tantamount to the Grand Dragons of AmeriKKKa. Every time Sarah Palin uses the word "Joe Six Pack" it's obviously a coded signal to the rest of the Klan to leave the trailer park, burn crosses, drink more beer, burp the alphabet and vote for John McCain.

For the Hyde Park set, Joe Sixpack is a person to pity, look down upon and sooth their "guilt" with offers of "government programs" and "tax credits" that amount to less than a net increase in income of $500 a year. Won't even get his kid braces. The Hyde Park set thinks Joe should have saved more money, got a better education and aborted at least one of his three children in order to be better off economically and live "the American Dream."

Part of the Hyde Park set's problem is that they only have the vaguest clue about economics as it associates to their personal life and economic choices, but really haven't got a clue about Joe's contribution to the economy. They complain about the price of arugala going up. Exactly who does Hyde Park think delivers the arugala to the super market?

What Joe Six Pack wants isn't more government hand outs. Joe Six Pack wants the economy to pick back up so he can deliver more arugala and make his own money. He wants the price of oil, thus, diesel fuel, to go down and stay down. Joe Six Pack has been around for awhile and he he has about as much faith in "alternative energy" vehicles as he does the government. There isn't one yet that can pull a load of arugala over the Rockies. He sure doesn't have much faith in the government and the only thing he wants from the Hyde Park, arugala eating set is for them to open their wallets and buy more arugala.

Joe will be happy eating iceberg lettuce as long as he's making enough money to pay the bills and get the kid some braces. And, he will live in the trailer and eat iceberg while he plans for a future where he might own a small fleet of trucks, maybe five or ten, where he's delivering arugala two or three or ten times a day and his small business is making over $250,000 a year.

Joe Six Pack doesn't need a business degree from Wharton to know that any time the government is talking about raising taxes on anybody while simultaneously talking about increased spending, Joe is going to get screwed. Some candidate can give Joe a tax break that nets him $500 a year more in spendable income, but he's going to end up losing a couple thousand in the long run because companies paying higher taxes aren't going to be buying as much product and are going to raise the prices on the stuff that Joe buys.

What's that $500 going to do for Joe Six Pack then? His buying power has been essentially mitigated by government induced inflation. He might as well head out to his grill, light it up and toss that $500 on it to cook some cheap hamburgers while he drinks his six pack of beer.

When Obama is president, Joe Six Pack can look forward to his nightly news filled with Joe Biden and government surrogates explaining to him how they will now have to raise taxes on everybody in order to pay for the ever increasing deficit. It will be everybody's patriotic duty to pay.

If Joe Six Pack has the audacity to complain about the lousy presidency of Obama, who raises taxes on oil and gasoline forcing the price to go back up to $4 or $5/gallon in order pay for these phantom "alternative energy" programs that still haven't produced more or cheaper energy, and certainly no eighteen wheeler that can pull loads of product, he can look forward to being told that he is a racist, unpatriotic, idiot who just doesn't understand how 10% inflation, the retraction of the economy and heating and fuel prices he can't jump over is insuring national security.

The Hyde Park, arugala eaters just can't figure out why Joe Six Pack consistently votes "against his economic interest." Surely, they think, Joe Six Pack has to see that getting government hand outs in the form of "refundable" "tax credits" is better than earning his own money his own way. Even if it means giving up some economic and political freedom. And, having received this redistribution of other people's wealth, he should be looking forward to the day when he finally makes enough of his own money to pay it back by supporting some other ignorant Joe Six Pack who hasn't made it out of the trailer park under his own steam.

Joe Six Pack is supposed to sit down, shut up, take the government hand outs he is getting and drink his beer. He should be happy, too, because the "liberals" in control of the government haven't outlawed beer. Yet. Gay marriage? Check. Running naked through the streets equals freedom of speech? Check. Drinking a six pack of beer and complaining about the socialist government? Soon to be illegal, if current activities are any indicator. He sure can't smoke wherever he wants to and in some places they are already telling him what he can eat.

Joe Six Pack gets it. The more the government gives him, the more the government takes away. Just call it, "Trailer Park Common Sense."

Allegedly, Joe Six Pack is the idiot.
