Fear some days that you may be the last person in America expected to make a living and not snap handout after handout of dementia Joe Biden’s war on poverty in the 21st century ?
Do you stand behind the economic ball because you have always tried to feed yourself and not be a burden to your fellow citizens?
Here are some of the ways I lose on Free Stuff:
I own my own house, so I can’t overwhelm my landlord and live rent-free for years, despite a decision by the US Supreme Court in June.
I paid for my way through college – a state school – myself, so I can’t take a break, perhaps permanently, from paying off student loan debts I took on in worthless woke up classes.
My kids are grown up, so I don’t get those $ 300 a month in “tax credits” per child even if I’m not working, which in this case isn’t a tax credit, just more welfare benefits for the non-working classes, ie Democrats.
I have a job so I don’t get “unemployment” plus an additional $ 300 a week bonus to sit on my bum and end my home life in my spare time.
And I’m not on food stamps, which means I won’t get the 27% monthly increase in the donation just announced.
John Kerry once asked the famous question, “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?”
Today’s question should be, “How do you ask a person to be the last person in the United States who actually has to work for a living?”
The food stamp boondoggle was announced on Monday amid the Biden collapse in Kabul. The Department of Agriculture announced that as Americans get fatter, they need to eat more calories.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the average grocery branded family of four will now receive $ 835 a month in free groceries, which is generous considering that the same family only spent $ 537 a month on groceries in 2019.
According to the government’s own statistics, the average welfare family spends 20 percent of their alms on sugary drinks, desserts, salty snacks and sweets. If you do a lot of grocery shopping, you might be surprised to find that it’s only 20 percent.
The Democrats, of course, are only trying to make up for the four lost Trump years as the number of grocery stamps slumped 19 percent and spending fell 16 percent. Less welfare means fewer democrats. It’s just a fact, Jack.
The Democrats used to call themselves the “Working People” party. That was nonsense for decades, but now they’re not even trying to hide that their core group is the non-working class.
Remember how Nancy Pelosi talked about Obamacare delivering strateless voters from the horrors of the “job ban”?
Now they are even more open about their total aversion to sweating (unless they are shoplifting or pillaging). Here’s what AOC, the true leader of the Democratic Party, said last year:
“Only in America, when the president tweets about the liberation, does he mean to go back to work. I think a lot of people should just say no. We don’t go back to that. We’re not going to work 70 hours again just to get the food on the table. “
Nancy Reagan just said no to… drugs.
AOC just says no to … work.
The problem is, they don’t work, and drugs have one thing in common – they’re both quite addicting. We all know people who stopped working for a year or so … and never worked again. (Or took a hack job – which is the same as not working.)
The way the AOCs and Ayanna Pressleys and the fake Indians of the world are demanding that all of these new supposedly temporary welfare boondoggles be made permanent, I suspect that millions of Democrats are getting closer and closer and never even trying to try to make ends meet yourself again.
Proof: There are currently 10 million vacancies in the US. Apparently, even the illegal foreigners who come across the Rio Grande with outstretched hands are just as uninterested in gainful employment as the rest of the Democrats.
There was an old TV sitcom, Dobie Gillis, which featured a lazy beatnik character named Maynard G. Krebs, played by Bob Denver in his time off Gilligan’s Island.
Whenever Maynard heard the word “work” he would jump in the air and shout “WORK!”. in fear and then run and hide.
Maynard G. Krebs is the figurehead of the modern democratic voter.
I’m not bitter just because I’m a sucker who always worked for a living. But why don’t I get one or two of these Democrat grants? How about a moratorium on some of the bills we deplorable people have to pay?
How about if Congress grants resentment mortgage permanent leave from mortgage payments? Or utilities. Quarterly property tax payments. Credit card bills. Monthly car payments or the excise tax. Unlike many Democrats, some of us actually pay or paid child support instead of leaving it to “Temporary Aid to Needy Families,” most of which are neither temporary nor directed to those in need or “families.”
One final point on the war on poverty II.
The first war on poverty is over. Poverty won. Poverty will win them over too. The past is a prologue.
