One of the common, recurring canards from Liberals, Progressives, their minority tenants that Americans want to “punish the poor” whenever they try to eliminate, curtail, or even restrict various forms of government largess.
This begs the question when did it become punishment to not provide handouts to individuals or groups? At what point did such handouts stop being charity and start being an entitlement?
The answer is, as every American knows, that it never changed. Handouts are charity and the withholding of such largess is not a punishment because nobody is ever entitled to handouts and no man should ever be or feel compelled to provide such to anyone.
Anyone who says differently is just a thug hellbent on theft of Americans wealth. It doesn’t matter if they’re in a hoodie and carrying a cheap 9mm pistol, hipster clothing and carry a placard, or a suit and carrying a briefcase full of legislation; a thug is thug and should be treated as one.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉
