What nobody sees is the huge rip-off that is CORPORATE WELFARE!! There are corporations that actually give employees instructions on how to get on Medicaid and food stamps. Walmart costs taxpayers over $900,000 for each store each year. You are paying for that cheap shit at Walmart whether you shop there or not!! That's just the tip of the iceberg, when you figure in all the money they don't pay in taxes and the rebates some corporations get even tho they don't pay any taxes, it is in the BILLIONS!!
There's an old saying, "Penny wise and Pound foolish". People are bitching about a few dollars here and there while ignoring the billions of tax dollars that go to subsidize some of the most profitable corporations in the world!!
That is what is happening these days, not literally, but figuratively. People bitching about other people that are at the same level or people they think are below them is what the powers-that-be want. If you're busy bitching about the guy buying a Snickers bar with food stamps, you won't notice how deep into your pocket the rich bastards are reaching!! Why should we have to subsidize the oil companies or Walmart or McDonalds??? They would still be profitable without the government assistance!!
We need to realize we are all in the same boat. This bitching about what others may or may not be doing is like arguing about who gets what deck chairs on the Titanic all the while the fucking ship is sinking!!!
