The Welfare State in Action

https://grantcoulson.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/incentiveseverywherepicturecorrect1.jpg?w=444&h=288

      Socialism: constantly discredited, never discouraged.

       Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives. It’s not their money, of course they’ll waste it.

    Wherein we see how well people can do who live off others. As Bastiat says, “Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.”

Man Compares His Cart With Another Shopper’s…This Story Has Americans TICKED
Andrew Spalding

There’s nothing more annoying than welfare kings and queens who have everything handed to them while we work hard for every dollar we get…

    We’ve done plenty of stories about people abusing the welfare system, and most of them are enough to infuriate honest, hard-working Americans. This one is a little bit different in that we have a visual — which is enough to upset anybody.

    In a Facebook post, Patrick Gibson shared a photo of something he saw while waiting in line at the grocery store — an amazing discrepancy between his buggy and that of someone using an EBT card.

     EBT is electronic benefit transfer–mooching has its own name.

    Gibson’s amount of groceries included diapers and fruit while the other person’s purchase included “full buggies of groceries including such items like steak and some other very nice choices of food.”

    Gibson said he wouldn’t have a problem with that “if I didn’t see the person move their big fold of cash out of the way to get to the ebt card and then load them into the back of a brand new Hyundai Genesis,” Gibson added, noting that a Genesis costs about $15,000 more than the car he drives.

    “I just thought I would take the time to tell this person/family that you are very welcome from all of us hard working/struggling to buy food Americans that have to foot the bill for your fancy steak feast,” Gibson said.

     There is a lively industry based on government free money. Like water through a sieve, they will find a way. The only way to reduce corruption is to make less money available.

    Gibson also said that he has to skip breakfast and lunch so his wife and children have food to eat “because $50-$75 dollars doesn’t go very far.”

    Gibson ended his post with,”So you enjoy your $800 free grocery purchase.”

   The system has evolved into something in which we can all take pride. All animals are equal. Mooching animals are just more equal.
