Democrat Congresswoman suggests Republicans are religious hypocrites for decreasing SNAP funding…

This is how nasty Democrats can get. Not only do they call Republicans ‘anarchists’, ‘legislative arsonists’, ‘racists’ and anything else extreme they can think of, but now Barbara Lee is suggesting that Republicans are religious hypocrites because they made $40 billion in cuts over the next decade to weed out waste and abuse:



Just another way of saying Republicans hate the poor. And it’s completely unfair. But hey, Democrats don’t care how unfair it is…they will say it anyway and won’t be held accountable because when all is said and done the media will give them a big fat pass, just as they did Harry Reid last year when he lied about Mitt Romney on the floor of the Senate.

Rock-solid, rock-bottom stupid. The only step left on the democrat’s road to complete brain death is for them to lie to death so many of their own brain cells that they forget how to talk. Even then they’ll still hate the Right.

At least then we won’t have to pretend they’re sentient.

These people are low. They will try every trick in the book. Notice Rangel is trying this tactic, too. They get their orders, and they go to work. They don’t even know what they are talking about. They are despicable! The problem they have is, when their opponents know the truth, there is NOTHING they can say or do that will sway that kind of certainty. It is, however, sad that we who know the truth are fighting against our own countrymen.

Democrats hate the poor so much that they would have the middle class join them and have the poor actually become even more poverty stricken! Her stance and false cry of racism proves that what she does is all in the name of power, votes, and crony capitalism, not to help the working class, but to cripple it into slavery. Ironic coming from this black woman that claims to be opposed to it. She is the golden example of ignorance and greed…the golden example of what is wrong with government.

How dare those religious hypocrites! When I was a street level alcoholic I can’t begin to tell you how many times food stamps helped me get booze and cigarettes! Most people just don’t know how much waste and fraud here is in the system.

Booze and cigarettes? That’s funny. Did those “food” stamps buy you crack and heroin too? Cuz you’re definitely on drugs if you think you can get anything other than food with food stamps. You can’t get tin foil, Sterno, or anything hot (like a roasted chicken) with food stamps, nor can you get absolute necessities like toilet paper, tampons, band-aids, or aspirin. If you sell your food stamps on the street (to other people who use them to buy food), the most you can get for them is 50% of their value, turning the less than $3/day in food into about $1.35/day in actual money. How many cigarettes can you buy with $1.35? Cuz in most states, the TAXES alone on cigarettes are about $1.35/pack. It’s pretty clear you live in a fantasy-world and/or have zero idea what you’re talking about.

You’re right, you only get 50 cents on the dollar on the street and it doesn’t last long. You think that means it’s not done? And there are stores that let you buy anything with them if you know where to go. FS are only part of an addict’s hustle. I’ve been there and done it. You sir, are the one living in fantasy land.

opiper
Guest
opiper

The fantasy is this idea that ALL or MOST of the recipients of FS are unworthy of them. So what if there’s a handful of addicts that are so bad at math they think they can sustain their addictions to really expensive drugs (like cigarettes, alcohol, pot, heroin, crack, and meth) w/less than $2/day? Just because YOU apparently preferred to trade your bare-bones food benefits for cash to fund your habits doesn’t mean that the millions of other aid recipients make your bad and selfish choices too. Your argument throws the baby out w/the bath water and punishes the MAJORITY who use their benefits to get food. Out of curiosity though, if you were once an addict with a hustle to scam the system designed to help you, how were you lifted up out of the quagmire into the condescending seat you occupy now? You didn’t accept help from anyone,… Read more »

Just because I corrected your misconception about being able to support a drug habit with Food Stamps doesn’t make me a troll and it REALLY doesn’t make me a liberal. Like I said, if the majority of FS recipients simply scam the system like you bragged about doing when you were receiving them, then I’d prefer the benefits defunded. But I don’t see evidence of the majority acting like you chose to act. Maybe if I huffed some glue, I’d see what you see. Maybe… (peace)

Is it any wonder why California is in such financial ruin? I have nothing against people who can’t work getting benefits; but no person of able body and mind should be given a handout. They should be required to work; if work isn’t available make some – there are plenty of opportunities to do community service. The government is robbing peter (the worker) to pay paul (the slacker).

opiper
Guest

Slackers? How are people who work anywhere from 8-14hrs/day slackers? We don’t have a surplus of job openings in California that able-bodied people snub their noses at. We have a working population that’s hungry and poor. You do have a point though – government intervention is rarely the solution to any problem. Simply robbing the wealthy DIRECTLY would be a far more lucrative way to survive than looking to the government for a handout.

marcinh

I am talking about persons who don’t work, who don’t care to work, the people that think they are entitled. These are the slackers. Those who are able bodied and not working should not be allowed benefits. They should be put to work making community improvements as they were in the 40s; earning the money.

Slightly OT: I go to a city park with my son after school, and there’s a food pantry nearby and folks sometimes come by the park after picking up their allotment of donated food. Last Thursday, I watched a mother hand a child an apple out of her basket who promptly took a bite. The child then tried to give it back to her mother who then told her to just throw it on the ground even though there was a trash can paces away. I walked over, picked up the apple, and threw it in the trash and told the mother “Oh, let me throw away that perfectly good donated apple for you. You’re welcome.” She went off on an urban tirade, arms a flailing about, and my son and I just walked away shaking our heads in unison. What is un-Christian is the waste of God’s gifts of… Read more »

But what about the separate cuts Democrats made in a different bill?

I guess when these clowns have nothing they resort to their ‘descriptors’. In reality cutting SNAP is the Christian thing to do. Enabling bad behavior is never good.

So Scoop, they wanna get religious? The Bible also says, “Though shalt not steal.” If you are redistributing what someone sweat blood and tears to get and giving it to someone because you want to address “inequality”, then you need to look in the mirror.

Ask them which part of the Bible says it isn’t stealing if you hire a politician to do it for you. And then, which part of the Bible says the cut that the politician keeps by lavishing money onto unionized government workers whose union bosses then kickback to the politician isn’t stealing?

Politics of emotion. It works. It’s much easier to win an argument when you marginalize the opponent, although you’re not winning the argument at all. You win the votes without having to argue the facts.

I think the people they want to get off the system are the able bodied people that aren’t even looking for work – like the surfer dude that was livin’ the life, not a care in the world. It should burn everyone’s bisquits that they work maybe 2 or 3 jobs to make ends meet and their tax dollar is going to some lazy butt who doesn’t see the need to make his own way.

They live the motto: “It’s better to ask for forgiveness (which they NEVER do) than to ask for permission.” People who talk like this need to be primaried at the very least. And why is it always some angry, person of color, female politician? Sheila Jackson Lee. Waters. This twerp. Pelosi (have you seen what color she’s turning? Corpse white!). All of them, fools who engage their mouth without a care in the world about what is said.
I continue to hold the media accountable for each one of these incidents… pathetic. And it’s MSNBC who is by far the worst. A hokey, National Enquirer, Jerry Springer rag network. They’re like a mean-spirited Onion News network: all the outrageousness and none of the funny. Liberal media is killing America with their lies and propaganda. And the Obama-loving dumbmasses are too stupid to know any better.
