Who Is Stealing From Whom?
I saw the photograph below on cnbc.com the other day. I have copied the caption from the photograph immediately below it. When I saw this photograph I flew into an almost uncontrollable rage. Fortunately I have recently given up drinking coffee and I had just removed my coffee cup from my office. Having nothing more substantial than pens, pencils and paperclips to throw around, I soon tired of the effort and collapsed into my chair, utterly exhausted. What is wrong with everyone? Am I the only one who sees the irony in that shot? The article accompanying the photo went on to describe how politically difficult it is going to be for Republicans to repeal Obamacare given how many citizens of the Socialist Democracy of Amerika have already become totally addicted to the government handouts associated with the program. This photo perfectly illustrates how quickly envy-filled citizens become habituated to the handouts they receive. Suddenly Obamacare has become "My Care." Amazing.
