27. Thanks for the warm welcome
I can't believe it took me so long to find this place! I love you guys!
I have a brother in law who is a crazy redneck whose current wife is on disability and whose child is on Medicaid. He also has never paid a dime in child support for his own children. Yet, he goes on and on about the evil government and does not see the hypocrisy of it all. You can't argue with stupid. Basically, the guy's a racist, no matter how clever he thinks he's hiding it. He thinks it's all blacks and hispanics that are using 'his' taxes, taxes he rarely ever pays mind you. When Obama was elected, he about went into a seizure.
But enough about that dimwit.... what has always made America great to me has been it's capacity to take care of people... Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. I mean the Marshall Plan saved Europe. This is the America everyone loves and what makes it great.
I heard somewhere that 9 out of 10 red states are the biggest users of these "entitlement programs" they bitch and moan about. As my husband likes to say, "there's a willful ignorance here that you just can't fight."
