Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
These days my life, I feel it has no purpose
But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

Jon Stewart: And if you're worried about the poors, don't! Because they're defined by the census as a family of four making less than $22,350 a year. Four. 22,350 a year. They'll be fine!
Robert Rector speaking on Fox News: When you look at the actual living conditions of the 43 million people that the census says are poor, you see that in fact they have all these modern conveniences.
Stuart Varney (Fox News anchor): 99% of them have a refrigerator!
Jon Stewart: 99% have refrigerators! You food-chilling motherfuckers.
Jon Stewart: But you know what? Maybe they're right, maybe Fox is right, maybe the bottom 50% of Americans, while they already pay excise and payroll and medicare taxes, do need to pay more. I mean they can spare it, after all, they control 2.5% of our nations wealth. Oh then you know what? This is actually a pretty easy calculation, we can do this. The bottom 50% is just simple math, in dollar figures, the bottom 50% of this country have 1.45 trillion dollars in everything they own on this earth. So let's see they have 1.45 trillion dollars, what do you say we take, I don't know, half of that. That'd be, oh look at this, 700 billion dollars. Why does-why does that figure sound so familiar to me?
Chris Edwards speaking on Fox News: The president wants to raise the top two income tax rates, which would raise about 700 billion dollars over 10 years, you know what that's only a tiny fraction of the federal government's deficit.
Jon Stewart: So raising the income tax rate on the top two percent of earners would raise 700 billion dollars but taking half of everything the bottom fifty percent have in this country would do the same, I see the problem here. We need to take all of what the bottom 50% have. All of it! It's the only way to make a significant dent!
