  13. Let's envy feminists; they are now equally unemployed with men.
  14. Let's envy our generals- they secured their positions and promotions for years to come.
  15. Let's envy psychopaths, torturers, sadists and malicious bastards: they are in huge demand.

  17. Let's envy Wall St; stocks go up no matter the economy.

  22. Let's envy the greedy bastards- they sold America
  23. Let's envy all those pseudo- liberals; they hate Cindy Sheehan but love Nancy Pelosi.
  24. Let's envy all the media people; the less they work the more they are paid.
  25. Let's envy all the spooks and murderers for hire; they are now called professionals.
  26. Let's envy Snooki; at least she has fun.
  27. Let's envy Elena Kagan: she never sat on the bench but she will be a Supreme Court justice.
