That "socialist" accusation

Here's a comment to a posting I found over on AMERICAblog:

My Republican brother has worked for the FAA all is life, has the best health care available and the government even sells his house for him when transferred to another area yet he constantly screams about us "socialists". Go figure. Those types not only lack self awareness they have no appreciation for irony and that's why they're so damned stupid. You can't even point out their hypocrisy to them.

I don't think people like that even care about hypocrisy. It's the "I've got mine; screw you," attitude that they seem to think is not only acceptable but laudable.

By the way, isn't it interesting how people from the same family can have such different political philosophies? I also have a brother who's very right-wing in his attitudes. I don't get it.

    Thank You! Exactly...
    "I've got mine; screw you" are exactly the words.
    I also have a sister who was "like me" :) before she married her husband.He works for Boeing in the accounting Dept working on Gov't contracts. The horror of Democrats shutting down some of their Gov't contracts!..and over the limit "cost plus" contracts!...he might loose his "private" Gov't contracted job!

    My political beliefs are nowhere represented in my family. I too have a brother-in-law who works in defense contracts.
