“....before the Democrat parasites gobble it all up.”
but “it” represents the labor, blood, sweat, and tears of someone who truly did something.
That’s what I can’t get over - how people can gloss over that in this whole debate. It’s tragic.
Whenever liberals and so-called conservatives agree on something, like these sorts of entitlement programs, we’re surely screwed.
There's no agreement at all.
I never signed up for SS but was forced to support the Ponzi scheme for over 40 years. Now it's my turn to "recover" at least some of the money I was forced to dump down the government toilet. Nothing "liberal" about that.
The Democrats (communists, liberals, whatever), on the other hand, believe that the worthless welfare/food stamp crowd and their litters, who never contributed anything to anybody, are "entitled" to the fruits of other people's labor... "free stuff", confiscated from productive citizens and handed over in exchange for votes. Nothing conservative about that.
I guess part of the problem is the bastardization of the word "entitled". If I support an insurance program like SS my whole working life, then yeah, I am entitled (literally speaking) to reap the rewards. On the other hand the Democrat welfare crowd is entitled (literally speaking) to nothing. The government definition of "entitled" is something else entirely.
