Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Nadie_AZ: i.telegraph.co.uk

One, that horse is dressed like a hobbit. Two, what's the matter with horse people? On the scale of people who like their animals way too much, there are crazy cat ladies on one end, and way, way, way down in the deep end are horse people. If I walked into a room and there was a group of furries on one side - in full costume - and horse people on the other, I'd think long and hard about walking to the furry side before I immediately turned around and left the room.


What's hilarious is seeing the casual horse owner in Central frikkin' Texas putting those clip on blankets on their horses for "Winter". So we go up to Wolf Creek Pass,Colorado in February and they're lolling around happily in the pasture, in 2 feet of snow, blanket-less.

I hate everyone who ever had a pony when growing up. Or a horse.

We can see she's hot to trot. Perhaps she thought the horse could help her pick stocks.

With today's gasoline prices, she can't afford not to buy a horse.

My daughter wants a horse. I make decent money, but we live in town so no space. I still don't know how I'd pay for it. Every time it comes up we watch that Simpsons episode where Lisa gets a pony because Homer's trying to buy her love and has to take a second job at the Kwik-E-Mart so he'll fall behind more slowly. Hilarious, on point, and 9-year-old-grokkable. Thanks, Simpsons!

After hearing those stories about Burger King, her house is probably the safest place for that horse right now.

"The house we are mooving ([sic]) to in nNorthway is smaller then[sic] the one we live in now, so its[sic] far from a mansion."

I think that it's fair to say that both the child and the editor at the Telegraph are illiterate.

Citrate1007: People on welfare tend to make poor financial decisions.....shocking!


The poor probably don't make that many more bad financial decisions, they just don't have the ability to recover from them as easily. If I blow $500 doing something that won't benefit me it may set me back for a week, maybe two. If a poor(er) person does it, it can be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

George W. Bush has lost more of other people's money than many people will ever make in a lifetime.

We love the right to privacy unless the person concerned is poor.  We hate it when companies "invade our privacy" but I know more about a poor lady living in another country now than I do about my next door neighbor, who has a key to my house.

Ah well.

Does public money = less right to privacy?

300 bucks a month is a bargain to keep a horse at a stable...

LMAO! You know, its a great reference but what really impresses me is that you somehow Googled up a picture of that obscure woman who appeared in (to my knowledge) one Seinfeld episode so quickly...and then got a close up.

Great. Blood just shot out of my nose.

Makes sense. She obviously has trouble keeping her legs closed, so riding a horse around should be a natural fit.

She found out how delicious a horse can be, and wanted to raise her own. Why the outrage?

What the government funds it can regulate.

Want that highway money, states?  Mandate speed limits and seat belt use as per our requirements.

As for this chick.  She wastes money on this when she could be wasting money on that.

So what?

She first became pregnant at 14, to a 23-year-old boyfriend, who has not been named.

Wow. That's not creepy at all. No, not even a little bit.

But...but...but, the liberals don't understand WHYYYY the rich keep getting richer!!!

You're answer makes too much sense so they'll ignore it.

Woman in the article is Obama's wet dream.


In fact, poor communities have their own, almost entirely off-the-books economies and people learn very quickly to make smart, shrewd decisions to survive.  If we were suddenly thrown into that world, we would flounder (unless of course you're some Randian superman who was born with supersmarts and would always rise to the very top because you're so very very clever).  Drug fiends and alcoholics don't make very good decisions, but that's true whether you're filthy rich (*cough* Texas Rangers *cough*) or very poor.  Assuming that poor=stupid and rich=smart is pretty facile.

It's easy to believe troll headlines from the likes of the Telegraph and assume that everyone who has ever received a nickel of money is nothing but a lazy, sleazy scammer stealing your money.  Now please tell me how the media leads sheeple to believe whatever they want.

One other thing, I hadn't heard that Obama was pushing to give horses to poor families.  Do you have any citations on that?
