  •  Suddenly Christie cares about human suffering (4+ / 0-)

    I seem to remember a lot of sneers and a lot of insults directed at anyone who dared challenge Christie, especially challenging him to care about the poor, or care about education, or a host of other issues.

    Now he decides that his ox has been gored so suddenly he is Eugene Debs.  

    There should be federal aid for hurricane victims and in a larger sense this is a proper function of government.  It is just hard to stomach loudmouth Republicans like Christie and King suddenly screaming about the House being indifferent to those in need.

    A new birth of freedom..

    •  You have captured the essence of the problem. (0+ / 0-)

      But I don't think Christie or King have a clue!

      Being rich makes you more likely to lie, cheat and steal.  A series of experiments conducted on volunteers  with annual incomes ranging from between $16,000 and $150,000 found that the most wealthy were more likely to cheat to win a $150 prize, take candy from children, and pocket extra change given to them by mistake.  Drivers of pricier cars were also four times more likely than those who drove cheaper models to cut off other drivers and pedestrians.  Being wealthy seems to insulate you from the outside world and make you "less likely to perceive the impact" that your behavior has on others, says study author Paul Piff.  —The WEEK
