Political Parasitism

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Crypto-Anarchism,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“What conservatives think freeloaders on welfare look like
What liberals think freeloaders on welfare look like
What I think freeloaders on welfare look like”

My Commentary: Political parasitism.

Corporate Welfare Whores

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after they posted artwork being shared the page, “Young Americans for Liberty“…


“WELFARE: When you love strangers so much that you’re willing to have government steal money from another stranger to help them out.”

RaynWELFARE: When you love *CORPORATISM* so much that you’re willing to have the government steal money from the entire population to line the pockets of billionaire CEOs.

According to the CATO Institute, the U.S. federal government spent almost $97 billion of our tax dollars on corporate welfare during fiscal year 2012:

The most regular recipients of corporate welfare include BOEING, XEROX, IBM, MOTOROLA, DOW CHEMICAL, GENERAL ELECTRIC, APPLE, McDONALD’S, and WALMART:

Drug Test Floridian Welfare Recipients, or Protect the Constitutional Rights of All Americans?

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance…

Arielle K.: Florida is the first state that will require drug testing when applying for welfare (effective July 1st)! Some people are crying this is unconstitutional. How is this unconstitutional yet it’s okay that every working person had to pass a drug test in order to support those on welfare? Re-post if you agree!!! Let’s get welfare back to the ones who NEED it, not those that just WANT it!

Sara K.: Disagree. A lot of people on welfare were once working class citizens, therefore it was there own tax paying dollars that are being paid to give them a hand up. I don’t think jobs or welfare should be able to ask you for your bodily fluids. Nobody but a doctor should need to get your piss. If we keep allowing our constituional rights to be stripped from us, then what’s next?

Sara J.: Why not? When I went into the military I had to give blood, and to be a teacher I had to be fingerprinted, why is it that those who want something for nothing scream bloody murder when asked to prove they deserve the benefits, or are even entitled to them, when plenty of jobs require the same thing…if you want something, prove you need and deserve it.

Sara J.: This also goes for fingerprinting, especially, everyone should be fingerprinted and then when people try to pull scams they would get caught…it’s only the criminals who scream because they know they can no longer max out somelthing their not entitled to…or get caught and locked up… (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)
