BLOG: A Lesson in Irony

Yes, our government in action

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is actually proud of the fact it is distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of
the Interior, asks us to: "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." Their
stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on
handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

This ends today's lesson.

No, People should learn to be 2nd and 3rd generation welfare recipients and not work hard to get ahead. They should learn to avoid an education at all costs. Make sure they don't get hit with a job or worse yet apply for one. Hey, better to learn how to follow then to lead. Right? Should a government make it easier to get a job or to go onto welfare and to get food stamps? Should it punish achievers and reward slackers? And please don't waste time saying not all unfortunate people are slackers. We all know that is true but that's not who we're talking about. The good thing is you get to vote for whichever way you prefer this country to proceed.

Yep, that's it. The big oil subsidies have created the problem. Thanks for solving the problems of the country. As for the war mongers we have to get those people lit Hillary and all the democrats that voted for the conflict in Irag to help save the world from weapons of mass distruction. You are right Republicans are against government paid abortions. Oh wait that isn't what you said is it? But you knew that didn't you? I always thought family planning called for having as many or as few kids as you could afford and not the killing of unborn and those that survive abortion attempts. But tell me what does any of this have to do with the irony? yes there will always be poor. I just hope that there will always be rich as well to help create jobs and spend money so those of us not rich can get ahead.
