I just replied to a blog of someone I would rather not name because I don’t want to give them attention, basically this troll insinuated that people on welfare are just lazy and selfish (and while of course some are, some rich people aren’t?).
This was my response:
I love how we live in a society where someone can have multiple mansions and a system where they just have to convert oxygen to carbon dioxide to accumulate wealth and they are praised almost to a messianic extent as “job creators”, supported and voted for – but a poor person not wanting to starve or be homeless is condemned as greedy.
Most people on welfare have jobs you asshole, and 40% of male homeless people are veterans. Not a lot of slobs in the armed forces.
The notion that poor people are just lazy is what rich assholes tell themselves so they can sleep at night, and what they pay people to tell the middle class so they can justify policies that get them more.
