26. for some reason, what you said about welfare being instrumental in your survival...

... and how you have never forgotten it and would never deny it to others really touched me. Maybe because so many people on the right must surely have accepted a helping hand from the government (or others) at least once in their lives but as long as they're okay now they seem to be happy to deny help to anybody else in equally dire straits--certainly not all of them would do that, probably not even most of them, just the more vocal ones on message boards and the ones who show up in their Medicare-subsidized wheelchairs at Tea Party rallies.

Welcome to DU!
