SAFETY NET FOR THE POOR SINCE 1967
Fuck, that ain't shit.
They need mo'
431 BBBBBBBBBBBillion dollar per year.
So WHY the fucketh are they still poe'.
And then they want MORE!
952 billion from the same chart for defense. Defense is important, but aiding citizens in need is not? What then are we defending?
Just look at it as insurance against looting, widespread revolt and food riots. It's cheaper to feed the poor than to keep them locked up in jails. Don't think it can't happen here, a hungry man will steal to eat in any country.
In a land of plenty, if there are no jobs, and the rule is 'root, hog, or die', a hungry citizen is right to steal and to riot.
BTW, in a fascist country such as ours militarism is part of the welfare programs.
So the welfare/warfare grand total is over a TTTrillion dollars.
Yawn....still is small in comparison to corporate welfare.
Remember who got the bailout after the financial crisis? Wall St. or Main St?
Yet, Contards, blame the poor for welfare. When will you fucking assholes start attacking corporate welfare with the same passion that you attack the poor?
Excuse me son, but I am not a "conservative" as a LIBERTARIAN I oppose welfare , period. All forms and all shapes
Where would we be if that money stopped circulating through our economy?
