    Irony

    Two Statements that speak volumes:
    Irony 1
    “We are told NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics."
    BUT on the other hand……. "We are also encouraged TO judge ALL Gun Owners by the actions of a few lunatics."
    How is that supposed to work.....??????
    Irony 2
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47 million people as of the most recent figures available in 2013.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."
    Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
    Thus Ends Today's Lesson On Irony

    1 is ironic, but it works simply. Don't judge people.

    2, humans aren't wild animals. We're domesticated. If you leave your dog on the street and never feed it, it WILL turn feral and dangerous.

    I also find that if you don't feed it, it either will find another home or die some how. Funny how hunger causes motivation isn't it?

    That would be social darwinism. Hardly an ideal basis for society. Then there's the idea of base compassion. We recognize animal cruelty as a crime, but apparently have no problem letting people starve. Of course, they'll turn to crime to survive, then they go to prison, and the public winds up spending much more than simply subsidizing their food or employment would have cost to begin with.

    Turn off the food stamp program, and you will see feral humans that are dangerous.

    People need to earn their way if physically able.
    Ie; work for a living not be supported by everyone elses income.
    Government needs to be reduced by about 80% and people need to once again become self sufficient.
    The current welfare state is a total failure and the country is being destroyed because of it.

    Would you be kind enough to embellish on your 80% figure?

    Only for a short time. They will go to work at something or perish.

    Feral human = Target, the rest will calm down eventually and get with the program.

    Just like Sheriff Joe says, If you don't like it here, don't come back.

    Exactly where are all these jobs at, that you express. No jobs, hunger and desperation.

    How ironic would it be if Obama supporters had their guns taken away by the Obama regime? You know, the "I voted for him twice and would do it again" GoBama :cheer: people.
