Even as we have just ended the holiest time of year, I cannot bring myself to feel sorry for “the poor”, or should I say the liberals’ dystrophic version of “the poor”..
Let me be specific. There are two totally different groups of “poor” people. The first group is an ever-changing assortment that finds themselves temporarily in the lowest strata. These are the folks who truly do “fall upon hard times”. The “bread winner” loses their job for example, and with the Obama domestic policy of “destroy American jobs by the millions”, this group unfortunately has gotten appreciably larger since January of this year.. The crucial words within the description of this group are “ever-changing assortment” and “temporarily”. My compassion for this group is genuine and heartfelt, as they have found themselves in this position through no fault of their own and it is their deepest desire to remove themselves from it as quickly as possible.
The second group I call the “professional poor”, otherwise known as the “liberal base”. These are the liberal myrmidons who have been conditioned to believe that the world owes them something. Scratch that, the world owes them EVERYTHING. These are the people who refuse to even attempt to contribute to society in a positive way even though they are fully functional and completely ambulatory. For them I have only contempt and bile.
Only within the demented mind of the left is the classification of “poor” meant to be a permanent avocation. The liberals have programmed generations to believe that that which has been earned by others is somehow the rightful domain of the underclass, that those who have “more” have acquired it through some kind of theft or deception.. The liberals’ “poor” who are essentially oversized children, have no problem digesting the fact that they acquire that which was earned through the hard work of others via the “theft and deception” of the liberal government and then redistributed to them.. All that matters to them is that they reap the profits without any of the pesky “work” therefore the right people are doing the stealing and deceiving..
The “permanent poor” and their baby sitters mutually benefit from each other’s existence. The “poor” are a “cash cow” in every sense of the word. The liberals “creative compassion” collects untold billions of tax dollars, all of which are completely wasted because they are then funneled from the liberal government to the mendicants. In-between these two dysfunctional groups, the liberal government has created yet another typically dysfunctional group which employs countless billions of other liberals in order to “properly” redistribute the collectivist collected cash..
These benevolent Bolsheviks are also just another group in the liberal line who shave significant amounts off of the top of the loot pile before it ever gets handed to the loafers. After the litany of liberals all get their copious cuts, then and only then do they lovingly redistributed what is left to the rabble. The more of the “permanent poor” that the liberals can create and sustain, the more liberals that will need to be employed within the layers of the ever expanding liberal moronic monolithic government to take “care” of them..
These “poor” have absolutely no desire to better themselves. Were their “living conditions” actually as horrific as the liberal media like to make them out to be, they would actually do something THEMSELVES to change their station in life. The liberal government, for all of its blather about “change”, NEVER wants the lowest class to do anything except get bigger and more dependent. This liberal conspiracy appears to be perfectly acceptable to all parties involved. The limousine liberals are content to act as plantation overseers again and the derelicts are absolutely fine with the idea of having the liberal government give them what they do not deserve.
These people are not despicable because they are poor. They are despicable because in far too many cases they are poor by choice and they are even more despicable when they act as though they aren’t poor by choice when it appears to be financially expedient or convenient.
Periodically when the feeling of being downtrodden and displaced strikes, a few of the bottom feeders assemble with misspelled placards and they stomp about in dirty little evil circles in front of some liberal government office. What they DO is they grouse and moan about their “conditions”, conditions that they have done absolutely nothing themselves to alter, and they then turn to the compassionate liberal government to make things all better for them. Their station in life isn’t anywhere near as bad as they pule about when the liberal media has turned on the cameras and the microphones. All that they want is a “raise” without having to work for it..
The liberal government then takes money that I have earned and they benevolently hand it over to the “poor” who have refused to participate and to produce (they sure do reproduce though..) within a society and an economy that depends upon its citizens to do both. This is the modern day liberal’s definition of indentured servitude. The manacles and the fire hoses of the past have been replaced with EBT cards, welfare “benefits” and the handouts that they laughingly feel is “helping” those that they have enabled, enslaved and emasculated.
Please keep in mind that when the liberal media begins to cluck and snort about the “poor”, they like to leave everyone with the image of a “Grapes of Wrath” type of “poverty”. Today’s liberal “poor” all have one or more automobiles, cable or satellite television, actually numerous televisions, cellular telephones, video games and an endless assortment of modern conveniences and trappings. “All that they ask” is that everyone else pay for their groceries, their gas, their electric, their rent, their health care…etc.. They do not have the time to find a job as they are too consumed with the hobby of standing in some liberal government line somewhere. As long as they have the stamina to merely endure the horror of weaving between endless velvet stanchions, my tax dollars await them in the form of another dozen or so handouts at the end of the day.
These “beneficiaries” are willingly being enslaved. All that the liberals ask is that they remember who “pays” them come election time. I have long contended that if the poor did not have the right to vote, the liberals would not have a care in the world for them. Actually the poor, who contribute nothing, should not be allowed to vote, especially when it comes to the garnering of revenues by the government. Their opinion will matter once they begin to contribute to the coffers.
The liberals are “paying off” the “poor” with our money. These “poor” have no dignity, they have no souls and they exist merely out of spite. So as the liberals all line up to do the boo hoo dance for their benefit of their solipsistic slugs, I will be the one trying to unplug the juke box..
