Punishing The Poor

creepy-screamerOne 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. 😉

    Thank you. I’m just doing my too small part to break the punishing the poor meme that our domestic enemies are so fond of using.

    Remember it’s not theft if it assuages a liberal’s moral vanity.

    Of course it says a lot that liberals think armed robbery and dealing in stolen goods is “moral”

  5. jonolan Says:

    Yes, it certainly says a lot about our domestic enemies that they seek to rob the makers, by force if needs be, in order to feed the eaters and takers…and, thereby, ensure that those eaters and takers stay as such and stay beholden to the Liberals for the lives and comforts.

    Your rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. None of which descirbe a product which must be provided by someone else. Funny how so many of these people feel “entitled” to the work of others….until they finally make good themselves and then they are all about the tax shelters.

    Socialism’s fatal paradox:

    You have no right to your own effort but you do have a proprietary interest in everybody’s else’s.

    That’s very true. It’s also related to something I’ve been thinking about and attempting to research – that Leftists want ALL to be forced to “give” so that they, who normally don’t contribute to charities, won’t be penalized in comparison to others for giving to the “poor.”

    Also, Indian immigrants have a saying, “They’re DOA – Democrat On Arrival” but turn Republican / Conservative as soon as they’re established…Of course, so do most people if and when they grow up and enjoy the financial successes they’ve earned.


    It’s not exactly a paradox. Socialism doesn’t accept the existence of the individual as more than a cog in the collective. Therefore, there is no individual effort that is wholly separate from the collective to be proprietary over.
