Conservative Christian financial news analyst Dave Ramsey told Fox News host Bill Hemmer that folks who actually need those $1400 COVID relief checks have "mental problems” if such a tiny sum of money can impact their lives. He then added that giving those people $1400, is about as effective as “peeing into a forest fire.”
Wait a minute! Why the snide crack about “peeing into forest fires?” I mean, I thought all Republicans love their “trickle-down” economics? Now, I don’t know a whole lot about forest fires, but I do know quite a few people who have copious amounts of “pee,” which they’d be more than happy to send Dave’s way.
But, I get it - Dave feels there is no such thing as real poverty in America, just lots of mentally ill folks, who’ve made bad decisions. Wonder if that means all those big corporations who snagged millions in government COVID bailouts - are mentally ill also? If so, they’ll never find a better therapist - than the Republican Party.
Now, is it just me, or does it seem like Dave Ramsey’s trying to challenge the MyPillow guy, for the title of “America’s Biggest A-Hole?” Either way, our friend Dave proves once again, that you can be worth millions - yet still be completely worthless as a human being. Oh, and Dave, I assume you’ll be sending that COVID relief check they send you, directly back to the Treasury?
I cannot help but to agree. If everyone was able to make the correct decisions at the right time then everyone would be successful. There would be no poor and starving in the world. If people were just smart enough to realize this then they would be a lot better off. Education is the key to success. Now all we need is more people like Betsy DeVos who can help us all with this problem. I am sorry I did not mean to insult anyone, but if you believe the first couple of sentences then you are the problem. We would have figured this out a long time ago and would have done something about it. Therefore your argument is false. Thoughts?
