Bad Bad Leroy Brown

Well the South side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware
Of a man named Leroy Brown
Now Leroy's more than trouble
You see, he stand about six foot four
All those downtown ladies
Call him treetop lover
All the men just call him Sir

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy, he's a gambler
And he likes his fancy clothes
And he likes to wear
His diamond rings
In front of everybody's nose
He's got a custom Continental
He's got an El Dorado, too
He's got a .32 gun
In his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well, Friday 'bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar
Sat a girl name Doris
And, oh that girl looked nice
Well, he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
And Leroy Brown had learned a lesson
'Bout a-messin'
With the wife of a jealous man

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well, those two men took to fightin'
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like
A jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone

And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Yeah, he was badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Right!

And when you're done with that, Sawzaw, read Chongo Chimp's manifesto on Primate and Human Rights. I predict you'll be moved to tears, and will rush out to vote for the APP in an advance poll.

Chongo believes that EVERYONE deserves an equal kick at the can when they are young and starting out in life. What does that require? It requires an equal place on the start line of life, that's what...meaning decent housing for everyone, gainful employment for everyone at a decent wage, free education for everyone right through university, and free (and equal quality) medical care for everyone. Some would mislabel that "socialism", but Chongo calls it...justice!!! It's what any sane and responsible society would do...specially if it wants to prosper and have a good future.

And you can't do it when your primary emphasis is on fighting wars of aggression, keeping up the world's most bloated military production, and getting rich off antisocial Ponzi schemes.

Most people just use words to mean whatever they want them to mean, Don. (within some reasonable limitations)

For instance, everyone here who has a favorite hobbyhorse for attacking religion uses the word "God" to mean what they want it to mean (something stupid), just like rightwingers and Republicans use "liberal" or "socialist" to mean what they want it to mean (something stupid), and just like Democrats use "teapublican" to mean what they want it to mean (something stupid).

No further inquiry is made in any of these three cases, because there's no desire to inquire further...only a desire to attack and condemn.

There are a few people here—and in the world at large—who keep intoning like a mantra, "Liberals believe this and liberals believe that," but who don't really have a clue as to what the word "liberal" means, especially as a philosophical position and as a political position, or what those of the liberal persuasion really believe. They ignorantly throw it around as if it were a curse word.

Stoopud!!

The thread title is misleading. The point is that people who live by fraud, instutionalized corruption, ponzi schemes, and outrageous exploitation of their fellow human beings do not deserve their wealth.

This would include some of the rich. It would not include various others among the rich. There's no point simply asking the question "Do the rich deserve their wealth?", because it's a stupid question. It lumps all rich people together as if they were all the same, and they're not.

It's as stupid and pointless as asking, "Do Republicans deserve to live?" or "Do Democrats deserve to own minivans?"

Ask a stupid question? You'll get a stupid answer. So what you have in that poll is 58% of the people who gave a stupid answer to a colossally stupid question. ;-) And 42% who gave a different stupid answer to the same colossally stupid question. There IS no intelligent or useful way of responding to such a poll, except to refuse to take part in it.

Bobert,

The effect of inflation, as caused by the present government spending policies, has a far greater effect on the increase in poverty than the increase in income of a small part of the population- yet you are fine with that.

As for unions, they are one of the main reasons over the last 30 years for the inflation that has increased the poverty levels.

If the top 1% has seen an increase in income of 300% ( unproven) then they have kept up with the inflation caused by union contracts and pensions. Are you going to demand that THEY be taxed as well?

He is in the top 1% of peanut owners in the Chimp world.

If other Chimps with less peanuts than him do not take part of his bag of peanuts, it amounts to giving him more peanuts according to Liberal Chimps who have no concept of personal property.

Except theirs that is. They believe what is mine is mine and what is yours is mine too. It is unfair for you to have more peanuts than I do.

Pat Fisher never made those big bucks...

Nor did any of those old timers... Johnny U rode public transportation... Mickey Mantle used to the subway to get to the ballparks...

I ain't sayin' that they don't deserve to make decent money... And the average career is only about 5 years (if that) so given that they will pay physically for the rest of their lives they need to be paid decent money... I think a $2M-$3M a year cap would be fine as long as there was also a pension plan and health insurance for life that goes with it...

My problem with the system is that a lot of football players ain't the sharpest knives in the drawer and are are taken advantage of their entire playing life... Especially in college where they don't come out knowing much more about making good decisions about money than if they never went to college... Then the agents take their hand and advantage of them and then they get hurt and they are broke and disabled and no education to fall back on...

The NFL makes billion$$$ a year off the sacrifices these men make and I whole-heartedly believe that the NFL should be the one assuming "personal responsibility" for the health and well-being of it's players...

The world is full of people who look down their noses in pity at all those who are so foolish as to disagree with them about something...about anything, in fact. And they're all mutually looking at each other that way. Thus does the human ego strut and preen for a few short hours on its precious little stage, regarding itself as the King of Creation, fearing its own imminent demise, regreting and denying its absolute smallness in the face of life, blithering on in the void of its own insatiable hunger and its ravening desire to either dominate or destroy.

""Well then Little Hawk, thank you for your invaluable contribution to the conversation about American football.""

And there was I, thinking this conversation was about the rich, and whether they deserved their wealth.

We live and learn, eh LH?

Well, I suspect this thread has well and truly drifted away from its original thrust.
In the UK, we have a perculiar stituation regarding whether the rich deserve their wealth because the Queen - probably the most admired woman in the country - with a 70% approval rating - is also filthy rich, and is indeed, the richest woman in the land.
Of course, this should mean, that none of those 70% who approve of the Queen, should have the bloody cheek to criticise the bank directors, star footballers etc for also being rich! But they do!
