Bread and Circuses

Typical, but still pathetic:

A $200 back-to-school giveaway for needy kids sparked a mad rush for money on the streets of New York on Tuesday.

“It’s free money!” said Alecia Rumph, 26, who waited in a Morris Park, Bronx, line 300 people deep for the cash to buy uniforms and book bags for her two kids.

“Thank God for Obama. He’s looking out for us.”

Thousands of people lined up at banks and check-cashing shops to withdraw the cash that magically appeared on their electronic benefit cards.

Honestly, there are so many stupid bastards out there, just waiting for Daddy to make everything right in their lives, it makes you want to scream. Sure, the money Soros shelled out can be considered “free,”–if you know nothing about how he got so rich, that is–but the bulk of the dough comes out of tax dollars. For the recipient, it may seem “free,” but to the persons coughing the money up, it mostly feels like usury.

Also, while the program is intended to purchase school supplies for these kids, there is nothing–absolutely nothing at all–that decrees that THAT is where those bucks must go. Kinda like the way people paid their Social Security taxes, expecting them to be squirreled away in Al Gore’s “lockbox,” that money is going to be added to most (if not all) of these families’ General Fund, to cover more pressing costs, like food (no, wait, they’re on food stamps), shelter (beyond what welfare already covers), cable and cellphone fees….

Yesterday’s Farce: The Fibs and the Facts

Any doubts that President Barack Obama’s “townhall” in Portsmouth, New Hampshire yesterday was a complete farce were dispelled early on when the hand picked crowd broke out in a chant of: “Yes we can! Yes we can! Yes we can!” at the close of his opening remarks. Recognizing his campaign’s signature slogan, the President responded: “Thank you. I remember that.” Comforted knowing he was surrounded by a room full of die-hard supporters, President Obama then want on to make a number of misleading and outright false statements about the health care legislation still working it’s way through Congress. Here are just seven:

Morning Bell: Obamacare Pep Rally Fact Check » The Foundry

Yesterday, Teh Messiah, once again, proved he is utterly hapless without Teleprompter telling him what to say, and is absolutely gutless when it comes to facing anything except a hand-picked crowd of syncophants. Jeez, even that idiot Dingell was stupid enough to have one of his own supporters march around with an “Obama is Hitler!” poster, attempting to re-inforce the Nancy Pelosi inspired meme that anyone who opposes the Magic Negro is a de-facto bigot, obviously spurred on by right wing extremist firebrands such as Rush Limbaugh.

Two problems with that: First, the guy actually hoisting the banner. Second, Dingell’s flunky got the poster from a Lyndon LaRouche website.

But at least that moron Dingell made the effort. Has Team Bambi become so bloody stupid since moving into the White House that they couldn’t even find a “Republican” plant to toss a quasi-tough question for Dear Leader to bat aside?
