    Excerpt:

    But liberal elites here and in Britain will blame anything but the welfare state they adore. They drone on about the strict British class system or the lack of jobs or the nation's history of racism.

    . . . Democrats would be delighted if violent mobs like those in Britain arose here -- perhaps in Wisconsin! That would allow them to introduce yet more government programs staffed by unionized public employees, as happened after the 1992 L.A. riots and the 1960s race riots, following the recommendations of the Kerner Commission.​

    LOL! Oh, wait, that's not funny, just true and sad.

    One rioter who was interviewed wanted free housing. Yet another looter justified her looting as getting her taxes back.

    This doesn't count those on welfare or "disability".

    Riot Rationalization Misses the Mark
    by Jonah Goldberg
    08/12/2011
    Jewish World Review


    Excerpt:

    Invariably, these rationalizations amount to a license to spend ever more on the social programs that have, at the least, helped to produce the sort of "youths" who will burn homes and cars and beat people to death should the programs be even moderately curtailed. Indeed, according to liberal logic, the mere threat of reforming such programs is enough to cause wholesale violence.

    In other words, the cuts don't justify the violence, but the threat of violence justifies avoiding cuts. It's a clever rhetorical trick, but policy-wise it's both appeasement of and appealing to thuggery, pure and simple.​

    That's true mate, although you have to demonstrate that you are 'seeking work' Its a total joke. And jokes are usually funny....and then I realise that my tax is paying for the joke... and it stops being funny.
