The $%#! Case of the Sad Sack Bartender

The Las Vegas Sun today has a story about a 55-year-old bartender who has been out of work for two years. But there was something about it that just didn’t sit right with me. The story says the guy “subsists on just one meal a day to save money.”

Pulls on the ol’ heartstrings, doesn’t it?

But then it goes on to say the guy lives alone and spends $490 a month for his 2007 Chrysler Sebring.

What? I’m driving around in a paid-for used 2001 Hyundai…and I HAVE a job! Yet I’m supposed to feel sorry for an unemployed bartender who thinks spending $16 a day for a fancy car is more important than eating? I don’t think so.

And so it is with so many of these touchy-feely woe-is-me down-on-their-luck sad-sack stories we’re constantly fed by the media to make us feel guilty enough to give in and accept higher taxes.

Sorry, homie don’t play that.
