The “War on Poverty” has become a war on the poor. This recently hit home for me via some family member’s remarks on a meme I posted. I understand. Sometimes it must seem that getting up for work everyday just to keep up with the bills and trying to make it through life is harder than it should be. The middle class are being beat up pretty bad compared to the not too distant past when workers had excellent unions, great medical insurance and retirement pensions. With those rapidly disappearing benefits and the high cost of living, due to inflation, illegal wars, banker bailouts, etc, these middle class workers disparately need an enemy to blame for how fucked up everything is. That someone is poor people, who, so they’re told, are mooching up tax dollars and getting rich off welfare. Well we can indeed have our own opinions, but let’s please base our opinions on facts. Let’s get some facts:
I think anyone who can see the facts might stop blaming the poor, but that’s only if we’re talking about logical sane people. We’re talking about people programmed to work till they croak, and suck the mainstream media’s tit for life. But assuming some of these haters could really see that less than 4 cents of a dollar goes to helping the poor? What if they saw that only 2 cents goes to educating our children? We’re creating dissatisfied working drones by the millions. And there’s no jobs for them even at the lowest level. And what if they saw who was getting out of paying taxes? Might that make them less hateful little drones? Well, don’t be silly, of course it won’t. But at least sane people can see the facts and form an opinion based on reality, another disappearing quality in America. Some more facts:
Just look at that! It takes such little effort to switch the focus away from the facts and create a scapegoat for these lowly working bees to blame. Oh, it sucks alright. Some of the younger people have taken to beating homeless people to death with bats. Hate gets real bent out of shape in the real world. No one gets rich on welfare. No one wants to be on welfare when asked what they want to be when they grow up. It’s a shell game the elites play to distract attention from themselves and what they’re getting away with. If possible, at least if you find one of these mentally ill haters, try to get the facts to them. All that anger should at least be shared with the real villains.
