Quick Thoughts: Handouts and Bailouts

So, right wing conservatives are losing their minds over this little thing called welfare. In a nutshell, they think those on welfare are abusing the system. They see those on assistance as lazy, good-for-nothings who use food stamps to buy everything from the kind of food they (conservatives) deem as unnecessary to non-edible items. Somehow or another they believe food stamps can buy them ipods and cigarettes. What the hell?

The right is seriously going all out on a class war against the poor. Their battle cry is to stomp on the lower classes of society as if they are terrorists, and they use networks like Fox News to scream to the heavens to destroy the bottom caste of America, in God’s name no less.

It’s no surprise that the opposite happens. They consider the wealthy as the most needy. The rich and powerful, not to mention the greedy and corrupt, are held up as role models, shining examples for the poor to learn from, because you know, they all “worked hard” to get to the top. So, it makes sense that they should get as much help as they can afford to get.

It’s no wonder why there’s hardly a question as to why the crooked, greedy elite that ran this world’s economy into the ground get bailouts, but when helping the poor, who are victims of the economic crisis, it is considered undeserved handouts. To put it simply, the wealthy is seen as good while the poor is seen as bad. Furthermore, the wealthy is seen as victims while the poor is seen as villains.

As long as this bizarro vision of the world continues, the class war will likely intensify. What are your thoughts on the right’s war on the poor?

  1. LOL Mostly the rightwing nut voters are on welfare. The red states has the highest rates of welfare users yet they say that minorities and illegal aliens use welfare the most. In fact, all of the things these people say are just projections of how they really see themselves

    1. Folks, this what chronic drunkeness and meth does to these white ass cracks, baffles them! Yes there are more whites recieving ‘handouts’ in the form of alumnis, grants, welfare etc, the list seems endless! What it boils down to is hatred. It is all right for them to fuck around or up, imbibe, inhale, inject, eat copious amounts of food;claim mental ailments for everything such as pumping, overeating, peversions etc, when caught. In other words, it is not their fault! They are by their own admission sick! But they are individuals, got damn it! I have swamp land in Florida if anyone is interest in purchasing it if anyone buys into their ‘sweetness’.

    2. My sister and I were discussing this just the other day. The redneck governor of our state, Georgia, supports a bill in the state Senate that will allow hospitals to NOT accept people just because they are poor. He already has not allowed the expansion of Medicare in our state through the ACA. My sister says that when people call themselves Christians and yet deny anything to the most poor will have to answer to their Maker on Judgment Day.

      Furthermore, this is the same state that has a fool congressman (who is running for the U.S. Senate) who said a few months ago that children on free or reduced lunch should have to sweep floors in order to eat so that they realize there is no such thing as a “free lunch.” A TV station revealed that he was getting plenty of “free lunches” at the expense of the taxpayers to the tune of almost $4,000!

      Hyprocrisy and racism both at work, as usual.

  2. True, Adeen! I often think of documentary/truth-teller Michael Moore when reading such articles about these money-grubbing, overly “fat cats” aka Hypocrites! When Mr. Moore stated that “Why is we never think of Big Business when we think of welfare recipients?” Yah feel meh!?

  3. Yes, and no one “helps themselves” (to Other people’s money, that is) better than these jerks do! Imagine that turd having the damn guff to actually try and humiliate/exploit those children by making them sweep their school cafeteria floors!? As if children weren’t often cruel to each other enough, this dill-hole wants to add to their struggle by turning their dining experience into something out of Oliver Twist(?) Rep. Jack Kensington is disgusting for this!!!

  4. “I see that the study that shows that people with low intelligence tend to lean towards the right”, Well day-uM, if that ain’t tellin’ the truth about the “Repugnant-can” party, then I don’t know what is!! lol
