    It’s “rolls” not “roles”. That’s as dumb as the idea of the cartoon.

    The punch line is all wrong.

    “He hits the lever and gets free stuff”
    “So we have just produced a Liberal lab rat”

    Wait a minit! … Aint that a lawyer?

    Might we consider that we are fortunate to live in a country where we have the availability of aid to those who are unemployed or underemployed yet still have to provide for a family. Our economy is a long way from being healthy enough to be making wholesale cuts in entitlements.

    I’m confused. Your country suffered from a deep economic crisis, is still recovering, there was widespread unemployment and there are more poverty stricken people still suffering, hence the higher uptake and need for food stamp aid.
    McCoy sneers at these folks and claims they just want free stuff? That they are insincere in their needs? Just lazy goodfernuffin’ bums?


    I see.


    You’re not a very charitable nation. You claim you are but you kick those in need in the teeth when they’re down.

    “You’re not a very charitable nation. You claim you are but you kick those in need in the teeth when they’re down.”


    If you were to believe these cartoons represent the actual situation you would be correct. We have a very good safety net for welfare, food stamps, housing aid, educational assistance. There are lots of conservatives that like to bitch about it but the programs are still widely available.

    During the Clinton years, there were jobs. Unemployment was down. Individual welfare at the Federal level ended. There was a budget surplus.
    -
    Crime went down!
    -
    And Republicans hated it! With a seething hatred and they vowed never to let it happen again.
    -
    And they have not allowed it.
    -
    And I don’t understand why.

    That’s a CEO in the box, like from GE, Lockheed/Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, Halliburton, Exxon Mobil, Shell, Chevron, Monsanto, take your pick.

    He can thank Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush for his phone.
    The Lifeline program began subsidizing land lines during the Reagan administration and the Bush administration expanded it to include cell phones.

    EDIT: My mistake. It was George W. Bush who expanded it to cell phones, not his father.

    Starving, unemployed poor people with guns are certainly a great idea as long as they only live in Republican neighborhoods.

    The increase in people on public assistance is Obama’s greatest accomplishment. A legal purchasing of votes.

    And so you judge what is in the mind of a nation of people from afar.

    As a nation, we are committed to helping those in need. But yes, we are in deep economic crisis as you observed. So wouldn’t it be prudent to reduce all unnecessary spending, including waste in the welfare system? But where do you start? An April 2012 article on welfare fraud says this (I reserve judgement on the veracity of the article):

    “If the fraud rate is only 2%-3%, how much money could it really be costing us? Well…these low rates would mean that roughly 785,000 to 1.2 Million families are illegally receiving welfare benefits. At the average rate of $11,500 per year, this is costing the tax payers between $9.0 – $13.5 Billion dollars every year.”

    Well, that savings would certainly pay for air traffic controllers.

    Now let’s talk about charity. Take a look at this article.

    http://www.nptrust.org/philanthropic-resources/charitable-giving-statistics

    I don’t follow who gets what or how monies are distributed by any organization other than those I give to. So, I have no idea how much of this money is going into the pockets of “administration” and how much makes it to the people that need it. But the USA is “charitable” and is one of the first to respond internationally to emergency situations.

    The UK also does well.

    Here is a fun translation of Matt 7: 1-5. I hope you are not offended.

    “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults— unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this whole traveling road-show mentality all over again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face, and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor.

    But then we are all human and fail to reflect these “perfect” standards. Yeah, me too.
