|Parasite of the Year! Amanda Clayton
“I feel that it’s okay because I mean, I have no income and I have bills to pay,” she said. “I have two houses.”
I am a realist. I understand that any government assistance program, no matter how well run, will have fraud and abuse. Although I believe that everything that can be done to limit these things should be done, I am willing to except some degree of fraud and abuse in the interest of helping people who truly need it.
What infuriates me is that this woman truly believes she "deserves" food stamp assistance because she doesn't have a job. Sadly, she is not really to blame for feeling this way. The liberal establishment has brain-washed people into believing they "deserve" to have the government take care of their every need. I mean poor Amanda has bills, two houses, and no job. It's her right as an American that the government takes care of her. It's not her fault that she happens to have $500,000 in the bank. The money comes from the government, right? It's not like it comes from people with children, bills, ONE house, and jobs. What do heartless conservatives expect her to do? Get a job?
Conservatives are continually accused of trying to keep the less fortunate repressed. When in actuality, what better way is there to keep them down than to convince them that their existence is completely dependent on the largess of those in power?
Until parents (I've given up on the public school systems) start imbuing their children with a work ethic and sense of personal responsibility, we will see more and more people like the parasitic Ms. Clayton. And stories like this will continue to push my blood pressure to the point where my brain is likely to explode.
I implore you parents to teach your children that no one "owes" them anything except the opportunity to work hard and accomplish great things in their lives. I really don't want my brain to explode. Mrs. Sahib will make me clean it up.
Editor's note: Our good friend Carma pointed out that my satirical and hyperbolic statements about conservatives might be misconstrued by any liberals reading this post. I was illustrating the way conservatives are portrayed by the left. For any lefties reading this, you can look up satirical and hyperbolic at: www.dictionary.com
