    Lieberman?

    Liberal?

    I think not.

    No, free handouts does not mean “government spending that I personally do not approve of” it means “the government taxes me (takes money I WORK FOR), and then gives that money to worthless pieces of shit on welfare because they don’t want to have a job.” (see that episode of some MTV show where Dirty Old Bastard (ODB) goes to the welfare office to try to collect) “Government spending that I personally do not approve of” is pork barrel spending like $25 million for some stupid fish in some governor’s home state that no one has cared about in ever.

Those are my first few google results for ‘free government handouts’ in quotations and not one has referred to welfare. By coincidence, these are all by righties, but lefties use… Read more »

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    ‘Welfare’ is kind of like fnord, people just loose all reason when they see it. People who are ok with literally losing billions of dollars in Iraq go batshit when they see one guy on TV get a welfare check that he doesn’t deserve.
