  •  I know broke and unemployed Republicans who (8+ / 0-)

    are first in line for food stamps and WIC, and welfare and unemployment who justify it by saying "I worked to pay for this stuff, now that I'm unemployed I should get it, not like the other lazy people who get it."

    These people are completely incapable of recognizing the fact that the recipients of these "entitlements" are usually just like them.

      Most folks are down on their luck, but there are those who use the system. As a social worker I know this first hand, and this helps the elites distract attention from themselves. Why? Because little people see other little people with their hands in the cookie jar, but don't see the big guys doing it.

      Luckily the current environment seems to be waking many up too the real culprits, leaving only the real haters to carry the banner.

      Ergo why the Repug party is so bat shit crazy these days I guess.

        To quote Hannibal Lector, "We covet what we see everyday," in this case, the people we seeing getting "something" for "nothing."

      "When I was growing up, we needed food stamps every once and a while, but we never wanted it, nor liked it, nor were proud of it..  "
