Daily Show on lucky duckies

Seeing as the theme of the day has been inequality and class war, this video from the Daily Show is very appropriate. Interesting to see that in the US the Right is running the same ‘lucky ducky‘ line about the poor who are supposedly getting it easy because their incomes are so low they don’t pay any tax.

  1. Do you just post for the sake of posting Marty? Should be renamed MartyG blog

    [lprent: We all put up daily show and other video when we happen to enjoy it. I know that I do.

    Read this section of the about. If you don’t understand it, then I’d be happy to demonstrate the principle for you. ]

    Very good. I really wish we had an NZ version of the Daily Show. It’s not like they’d struggle for content.
    Did anyone else catch Farrar on the Daily Show?

    Haha both of these clips were on Comedy Central today despite being over a month old I think he is having one of his regular breaks in the states and I can’t believe that Farrar has a twin in the states.

    Check out this great clip about ‘Mom and Pop’ stores getting unfairly treated by the big guys!

    Perhaps Infused is worried that the Daily Show shows parallels with the NZ experience.
    Do we hear beneficiaries getting bashed and the bludging unemployed getting bashed? Surely not. Paula, John, Bill were just kidding!
    Thanks Marty for the underlying parallel.
