Little Billy, just remember that when your stomach hurts tonight because we don't have enough food, Stuart Varney really has it worse because you're demagoguing him to exasperation.

"Now what's really going on here is the government's buying votes. They're keeping, churning out the food stamps in return for votes. That's what's happening"

"Those damned Democrats keep HELPING people!  They keep doing what their constituents ask, and people LIKE them for it!  This is an OUTRAGE!  How are we going to keep farking people over if the other side keeps doing NICE things?!"

Conservatives keep celebrating punishment as a means to motivate people.  Even after multiple psychological studies show it is the worst way to motivate people.   They are projecting their S&M fantasy on the rest of us.

what_now: How will we ever get a handle on our debt if you can't cut $8 billion out of food stamps over a 10-year period? How will you ever do that?"


Well, you pedantic little prick, we could start with the USS Gerald Ford, which is ESTIMATED to cost $17.5 billion dollars and is a first of it's kind super carrier.

But we need that, right? Because of this guy:

Splish: Soup4Bonnie: Splish: What precisely should be upsetting about that?

That we're supposed to be the wealthiest country in the world yet 1 in 4 kids is on SNAP may not bother you, but it does me.

We're not the wealthiest country in the world. And even if we were, that doesn't mean that every person living here is wealthy. What alternative would you suggest?

Children born in poor homes are forcibly taken and reassigned to rich homes? Poor people are prohibited from having children? Poor families with children just don't receive any assistance? Wealth redistribution to poor families without earmarking it for food?

Here's another way of looking at it: no child has starved to death in this country because their family simply couldn't afford food in decades, largely because of SNAP and food stamps and similar programs. That's something to be proud of.


Not if you're a Republican.

fark that asshole.  He voted right along with the GOP to cut food stamps because he thinks millionaires are using them too much or something.  Rand may be against military spending, but he gives absolutely zero farks about the poor in this country.


You, uh...may want to look up the origins of that quote.

Then in the end Steve Varney learns his lesson after moving in with a hooker, teams up with the black guy, and through zany shenanigans causes Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch to lose their fortunes in a shady futures deal gone wrong.

Is the Obvious tag away at a job fair, where he'll pass out 30 resumes and not get a call back from any of our holy job creatures, despite being well-qualified for the positions available, followed up by a night and a morning drinking cheap whisky in a bar in order to summon the courage to tell his wife that in order to feed their children they're going to have to default on their mortgage and lose everything they've worked hard to get, lost when his company outsourced his job to India, and demonized by politicans for being lazy, despite the fact that he's been applying to 30+ jobs every week for the past 70 weeks while working part time as a server at the local Applebee's?

Magorn: Marcus Aurelius: "You are told that you are taking food out of the mouths of children. You're making people starve. You are bad because you're cutting. You can't win! How will we ever get a handle on our debt if you can't cut $8 billion out of food stamps over a 10-year period? How will you ever do that?"

How is cutting $8 billion going to help the deficit when defense spending is over $700 billion a year?  Cut 2% from the military and you're way past $8 billion, you worthless piece of stinking garbage.

"you can't ever win!"

Uhhh, well I guess that depends on exactly what game you were playing in the first place,  though I'm really not sure I want to know the rules of the one that has "More poor people starving to death" as a victory condition



Remember, it's only government waste when you're feeding or educating brown skin people.  Blowing them up is always money well spent.
