Why is it that huge numbers of people, who survive by the sweat of the brow of those who work for a living, love to point out the “Grrrreeeeedd” of those who are maintaining their own existence. As Welfare Willie sleeps in in the morning, George the Greedy gets up, gets ready and heads out for a day at work. As Welfare Willie pours his mornin’ coffee at noon, George the Greedy washes his hands and sits down fer a couple of sandwiches he’ll have 20 minutes to eat before gettin’ back to work. Welfare Willie turns on the TV and sits down to watch programs which will point out the evils of the greedy rich and the conservative right, the Libertarian lovers of that damn fool concept of “freedom and responsibility”. His existence is justified by the nobility of the “Left” by the world’s largest enemy of Freedom, the Propagandia (main stream media, some call it)
George the Greedy does hard work, but he makes pretty good money. He actually sees a fair percentage of it, but an ever expanding chunk is taken by his government. Some of which goes to pay for the security of his country, for enforcers of the law, Emergency rescue workers, fire-fighters, maintenance of the roads and sidewalks, many aspects of living, the benefits of which he and his family enjoy. However a pretty fair chunk of the money he gets paid for the hours he spends working, gets used to pay for the livings of a huge number of people who are like Welfare Willie, and those who operate and work in the offices required to organize and maintain the operation of this Welfare system. What does George the Greedy get out of this? Must be something, you know the greedy bastard doesn’t do things for nothing.
Another fair (depending upon how you look at it) chunk goes to pay the salaries, ”expense accounts” and retirement benefits of the politicians he’s chosen to speak for him. These politicians tend to get a much better cut of the pie than the solders who literally lay their lives on the line for both George the Greedy AND Welfare Willie. The politicians like to refer to themselves as “public servants”. In view of the reward it seems quite the servitude.
But I digress. The question is, who really, are the greedy and what are we to do about it?
The answer is Socialism, right Barrack Hussein Obama?
