Food stamp programs are useless and expensive

'Food stamp programs are useless and expensive! No more free government handouts for people and companies that can't take care of themselves! If you can't support yourself you should just work harder!'


-You got fired because you got drunk and beat a coworker and are now on welfare.

-You are unemployed because foreigners are too lazy to work and stole your job.

-You werd send to a war for a cause you could not understand and are now on disability pay.

-You think military industries are entitled to billions to create machines of destruction that often fail to protect your country and if they do work are only used to attack people unable to defend themselves.

-You cheated millions out of millions with phony mortgages, did not have to go to jail for stealing and cheating and got the government to bail you out after your bank had to pay a steep fine.

-You were a travel agent who thought the management needed more money and less money could be spent on the actual travels you sold and now think the government should give you lots of money for free so you can continue this practise.

In other words: isn't it funny that capitalists always rely on socialist ideas to help them whenever capitalism fails?
