Mitty And The Moochers

The classic 1932 cartoon featured the first film of Cab Calloway, whose moon walking moves were rotoscoped by Max Fleischman  on to his dancing walrus

“Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?” –Ayn Rand, “Hunger and Freedom”

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. And I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49, 48—he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. And he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean that’s what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people—I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.Mitt Romney, Boca Raton, Florida, May 2012

    I saw a Romney sticker on a BMW today; does that mean they pay taxes? or that they don’t, but Romney has convinced them to to take personal responsibility and care for their life?
