"You can't do it because $50 an hour isn't much, right? It's been a while since I talked to anyone with a real job, so I'm not entirely sure if that's an appropriate amount with which to represent a living wage."
Embarassing, but true. I think he really dropped the ball here.
Fuck you, Scrotum. I'm not Cena_Mark, and you know it. You're just a fascist, brainless retard who doesn't like hearing opinions other than the ones he has, mostly because you don't like to think.
Chet's banning me because I'm unpopular, not because I have two profiles.

Dissenting opinions are always welcomed, just not from those who's grasp of politics stems solely from talk radio and the Funny Network. If you're hellbent on saving democracy from the Communist Nazi Liberal front of PoeTV, could you at least do us all a favor and hang out in PoeNews to glean tips on how to express your concrete thinking into something creative and a bit witty? Stop devolving every fucking political ad into a 9th grade English writing competition that makes us look like fucking YouTube.
Its been obvious to everyone for ages that you intentionally troll. Whether the hardcore racism is real or not, you've made statements solely for the purpose being inflammatory.
I do kinda hope you don't get banned, but you've long forfeited the right to act indignant about it.
On the other hand, ten pages of boring because baleen can't keep his dick in his pants makes it harder to get to the funny comments.

I tried to imagine what it would be like making $50 and hour and just thinking about it got me all excited.
it's like what i make now... +$1.00/hour x 50.
I'm an elitist liberal ivory tower academic, and I would happily, HAPPILY, drop everything to go work for $50 an hour for a season. Even in Arizona, which is one of the worst places in North America.
I'll give anyone here who's willing to work a WHOLE SEASON...2 houses...2 WHOLE HOUSES! and you HAVE TO be there THE WHOLE SEASON. THREE MONTHS FOR ONLY TWO HOUSES.

I think McCain is insane, because $50 a hour sounds pretty damn good.
Yeah, but for the WHOLE SEASON?????
Seriously, you have to pick lettuce for the whole season for just $50 an hour!
Still interested now, smart guy?
O.K., how about this: The lettuce is made of baby corpses!
Cleaner, supposing I am banned, I want to let you know that I never hated you for one second, and enjoyed sparring here with you on POE. Same goes for the rest of the people who took the time to engage in controversial conversation and enjoyed it.
To the rest of you who wanted me banned: you're brainless. POE will be ten times less entertaining without me here.

People would swallow razor blades all day for $50/hour. The out of touch label is completely true.
but I get to have time on a yacht between shifts, right?
Yesterday I drank a pint of gravy for $20.
$50 an hour? Think how long you'd have to work in order to afford even a couple of mansions!
No, Americans don't want those jobs. We should all focus on ditching our families to marry millionaire heiresses instead.
Oh this is just beautiful. There's a banner ad above for McCain, asking people to donate $50 to his campaign.
How can we possible afford to do so when we are unwilling to pick lettuce!
Out of touch Washington elite Demo(n)cunts.
I would accept the position of Obama's campaign manager for $50/hour. I would tell them to just run this clip, over and over (and over) again. I would do it for the whole season.

[ What everyone else said. ]
Dear President McCain:
I'll vote for you upon a guaranteed contract in writing that I can work for you for $50 an hour.
And no, you may not have my soul.
I'm still trying to figure out what point he was trying to make here.
He was trying to defend his pro-amnesty position with regard to illegal immigration by saying that the Mexicans were doing jobs that US workers weren't willing to do.
Of course he's a little out-of-touch with what workers make, and it backfired. So he instead just flipped his position, caved to the far right, and now opposes his own immigration reform plan.
I, JOHN MCCAIN, WILL FIGHT TO RESTORE THE DAYS WHEN YOU WERE ABLE TO FEED YOUR FAMILY FOR $500 A NIGHT...THE GOOD OLD DAYS.

Not to rain on the parade, but isn't this almost certainly a slip of the tongue due to him being an old man?
It is possible that he meant to say "$50 a day". On the other hand its just as likely that a person with butlers, private jets, and more houses than they can keep track of, might be a little out of touch with a farmworker's wage. He certainly didn't correct himself after.
Either way the whole idea that we shouldn't care about lost jobs as Americans are too lazy to do them anyway, fits in with the McCain campaigns general attitude that the economic problems facing American families and workers aren't serious, and the result of whiners and wimps.

So, no one is capable of taking a farm job unless they're brown and Mexican. And white people only work for $50 an hour. And we're going to build that wall across the border to make sure that less brown people from Mexico get in to...uh...um...er...
I mean, itís one banana, Michael. What could it cost, ten dollars?
Okay, yes. Funny. Also, I noticed that people enjoy pointing out that McCain is rich, and therefore possibly out of touch. That makes this even funnier.
However, I feel like the subject is getting a little exausted. I'd be more interested in debating his policy ideas than his personal financial status. Also, it seems that he probably meant to say "a day" or "for the season" but "an hour" just came out without him even noticing. It'd be great to see somebody point it out -
"Oh. I see! We'll that TOTALLY ruined my point, didn't it?"
Even if he really meant $15/h, I'd do it. I'd do John McCain for $15/h.
God, I can't believe I just said that.
I'll pick that lettuce like a mahfucka
"you can't do it, my friend" isn't what the people wanted to hear, I guess.
