RUNAWAY SOCIAL SYMPATHY

Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

WELFARE MONSTERS

No doubt you read or heard about the murder of Adrian Peterson’s son.  The great Minnesota Viking running back had a two year old son living with his mother and her boyfriend in South Dakota.  The boyfriend beat the boy so badly he died.  Visualize a two year old child, perhaps one that you love.  What kind of a monster could punch such a child until he died?

You can be almost certain this horrid person is a product of the welfare system.  Every day the newspaper and TV deliver similar stories of heinous crimes.  It wasn’t always like this.  Welfare explains the change.  Recently, O’Reilly and other TV talk show hosts have been harping on the outbreak of murders in Chicago.  They blame it on gangs, bad parents, bad schools, weak law enforcement, you name it. They never hit the nail on the head.  Why can’t they say it? It’s the money. It’s welfare and the government handouts. If the underclass in Chicago never got any government money, there would be far less crime, fewer murders, sounder families and less illegitimacy.  More people would be employed and marriage would still be honored and as widespread as it was before welfare.

When you give people money they didn’t earn on a permanent basis you take away the requirement to struggle and make their own way.  Nothing can damage people more. Without anything to do some people will alleviate their boredom with misbehavior. The liberals who created our welfare system refuse to acknowledge the results of their handiwork.  They continue to insist on giving people money despite the fact that millions of welfare recipients have fallen into a behavioral sinkhole of crime, addiction and bad character that renders them irresponsible and unemployable.  Each generation is worsened by welfare so you can be sure there are many more monsters to come.
