Parasites, Fucktwits & Today’s Lesson in Irony (Working Title)

This little Propaganda Meme touted notably by Republicans (and CHRISTIANS no less!) Annette Bosworth (South Dakota) and Matt Gaetz (Florida) has been making its rounds on the internet lately and this is why it is a FISM (Fucking Ignorant Stupid Meme). Here it is – try reading it without grimacing:

TODAY’S LESSONS IN IRONY The Food Stamp Program is administered by the U.S. department of agriculture. They proudly report that they distribute free meals and food stamps to over 46 million people on an annual basis. Meanwhile, The National Park Service, run by the Department of the Interior asks us, “PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS” Their stated reason for this policy being that: “The Animals will grow dependent on the handouts and then they will never learn to take care of themselves.” THIS CONCLUDES TODAY’S LESSON – ANY QUESTIONS?

There are so many things wrong with this Meme, I don’t even know where to begin. But I’ll begin here: Let’s think about this statement Logically, Rationally & Intelligently.

First of all, though it might be debatable that our species is the most intelligent species on the planet, the comparison being made here is between our species and the Animal Kingdom. From the start this is demeaning and should already being raising an eye-brow or two.

Let’s first discuss the animals. Animals instinctively know how to forage for food. If food is becoming scarce in these parks there is human intervention, so the animals are going to be OK. The animals (and the rest of Nature in the Park) are protected. That’s the whole point of a National Fucking Park. Thus the Animals may not be getting handouts from Cheery Park Goers, but they are being taken care of.

Another reason why they don’t want people to feed the animals is because people are fucking stupid and will feed the animals stupid shit that they would not normally eat in the wild… they left that one out in this meme too.

In the wild, animals have to survive and will do anything to do so. Humans are no different. We will also do what we can to survive (and the government and the corporations that control it, make it more and more difficult to do so). Now while I agree that there are humans that abuse Government Assistance – most of these humans getting this assistance DO need it and it’s not because they are lazy… What they don’t tell you is that about three-quarters you know, 75 F#$%^ING percent of all food stamp households include a child, an elderly person, or a disabled person, and those households receive 83% of all SNAP benefits (this is according to a nonprofit group called Feeding America… look it up).

The US Government (and there is no real distinction between Right and Left), is trying to blame the woes and ills of society on what they refer to as parasites milking the system. When in fact, the government has created these woes and ills. but… (and here’s where we have to be rational): We are taught in school that if we do well, if we do everything they say, we can get out and get a good job. That may have been true at one point in our history, but it ain’t no more… I know people that graduated from University were looking for jobs and ended up having to get assistance – and that’s with a degree – until they found something. I know many more who left the US (the Land of Milk & Honey and Streets Paved with Gold, my ass) and go to other countries where quality of life is better.

HERE IS THE REAL IRONY: Didn’t the American government hand over BILLIONS of dollars to the RICH to bail them out from their own incompetence? Let me answer that. Yes, they did. A lot more than what they give the people that get government assistance (the children, the disabled and the elderly… you know that 75% I mentioned above). So we should not be pissed off at roughly 15% (did the math in my head) of the people (46 million out of 317.8 million) in the US getting some form of welfare, we should be Fucking Outraged that Tax Dollars are going to BAIL OUT FUCKING RICH PEOPLE!

Isn’t the US Government spending TRILLIONS of dollars to support Corporations while they make bullets and bombs and ‘rebuild’ countries that their bullets and bombs have devastated? WHERE OH WHERE ARE THE GOVERNMENT’S PRIORITIES? Are they over there? No? Over here? Under there? 46 million out of 317.8 million. That about 15% of the Population. That’s not a big number as far as tax payer dollars go. And while stats may fluctuate here and there, it’s certainly not THE SAME PEOPLE year after year. There are so many factors not to mention demographics. Where did these very broad stats come from? Has anyone asked themselves what state has the most percentage of those needing government assistance and why?

Detroit’s economy for example, once thriving, is in dire-straits because the automobile industry is moving their factories off shore i.e. out of the US. Do you think that those hard working laborers working in the auto industry are enjoying being on government assistance? Let’s use our Fucking Heads here, shall we Annette & Matt? Is it the fault of the good people from Detroit who worked in the auto-industry that they have no money to buy stuff they need to ‘survive’? Or is it the fault of the Corporations who moved their businesses to other countries for the cheaper labor; non-existent laws to protect the workers AKA Modern Day Slaves; and the lax rules on pollution and other bits?

Who are the real bad guys here?

Even if one wants to start their own business, the US government – and the Corporations that control it – do not favor small businesses. The red tape, the taxes and ridiculous laws for starting up a business in the US make it very difficult to succeed unless you do it under the table… WHICH I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO DO. The Public Education System (PES) does not get the Youth in the US of A ready for the real world, instead it gives them Test after Test (not real learning) to make sure they are good little robots. In other words programming, in other words Indoctrination, in other words the schools in the US are producing a bunch dummies that know how to obey, but hardly know how to think for themselves. Then they ‘graduate’ and get a ‘job’ –  if they’re lucky – which are often menial tasks that require just enough brain power needed to get the job done. Perhaps they went to a vocational school. Perhaps they went on to University… but what’s left for them when they are ready to hit the job market?

Perhaps the PES should teach children about health, about growing their own food and making their own clothes and most importantly Critical & Creative Thinking and THINKING FOR THEMSELVES (instead of being told what to think). But ALAS! these Independent Creative Critical Thinkers would not need the government so much, they would not need to buy all the shit they do as Consumers or worst of all, they would be questioning the government’s actions as an intelligent, rational, Citizens.

But they (The Government and The Corporations that control the government) don’t want this.

They want Ignorant Dumb-Asses that do what they’re told and are easy to control (Classic Sun Zi The Art of War – keep the populace Ignorant!).

They want We The People to CONSUME and DEPEND ON THEM.

The problem is not the people on welfare, that’s only a small percentage of the budget. The Problem is the system and the Masterful Fucktards running it.

Don’t fall for the Propaganda…  don’t believe the Hype.

Question Authority.

  1. First of all, though it might be debatable that our species is the most intelligent species on the planet…

    I used to take the superiority of human intellect for granted, but as of late, I’m in need of more evidence. At the pace we’re at, we’ll be back swinging from trees by the end of this century. We already spent most of our days pissing & throwing our dung on each other.

    The Public Education System does not get the Youth in the US of A ready for the real world, instead it gives them Test after Test to make sure they are good little robots…in other words the schools in the US are producing a bunch dummies that know how to obey, but hardly know how to think for themselves.

    I agree with everything in your story except the above part. I don’t think the education system is even capable of producing good little robots anymore. I think it even fails at that ultra-low bar. Just look at all the self-obsessed, illiterate, greedy, little imbeciles the system cranks out who only THINK they can think for themselves. The truth is they can’t even spell their own fucking names, let alone understand -or care about- anything remotely important. Sure, they can find out the latest gossip on Real Housewives of Boise in under 10 seconds, or find the best deal on spray cheese and order it all the way from India. But without an “app” for breathing, these morons would suffocate & die. (If only.) They are The Walking Braindead (There’s a meme for ya!)

    I’m at the point where I LONG for the day the educational system could crank out little robots. Bad as it was, at least they could be used for something productive, should The Powers That Be desire something productive. Unfortunately, the Powers That Be seem less interested in a productive society every year. George Romney has become Mitt Romney, so to speak.

    All the products of our educational system can do now is throw dung in the Twit Zone, eat garbage and masturbate.

  2. solid work Paul, enjoyable article… keep it up and hope to see you back in Taiwan
