Damn.

Even if people believe those numbers,

No one will give a fuck. Americans have become comfortably complacent.

Oh jesus christ, we've covered this elsewhere. As if those people wouldn't be on public assistance irregardless of a job at Wal-mart. Those people are unemployable in any other capacity.

After receiving several links in emails from liberal friends I'm going to guess it's a propaganda clearing house for amateur propaganda producers of a liberal bent.

This came from my obese lesbian liberal friend I went to highschool with.

Yeah it's sort of a minimalist Huffington Post without any pretensions to journalism. Every time you click on it, a pop up box comes on with a leftist platitude and gives you the option to "agree" or "disagree". I have no idea what the purpose of this is.

Upworthy is a left-leaning website for viral content that was started in March 2012 by Eli Pariser, the former executive director of MoveOn, and Peter Koechley, the former managing editor of The Onion. It is backed by Chris Hughes, one of Facebook's co-founders.[1][2][3]

Upworthy's stated mission is to host the intersection of the "awesome", the "meaningful" and the "visual."[4]

In late 2012, Upworthy announced that it had raised $4 million from New Enterprise Associates and angel investors.[5]

IN other news, Adolph Hitler presents "conversion to Judaism in 10 easy steps" and Trey Parker and Matt Stone bring you "The Book of Mormon" ... (oh wait... that second one really happened)

They actually make me laugh knowing the type of person behind them. I got one yesterday that asked if I believe in true equality no matter a person's race, gender, etc. You know sure as fuck the guy behind the question does not want true equality as he'd raise a stink if you got rid of affirmative action.
