To me, it reflects a tendency to heap moral approbation on half of America, tell them their problems are their own damn fault, and send them off to whatever their fate might be.

"The idea that the market will solve such things as environmental concerns, as our racial divides, as our class distinctions, our problems with educating and incorporating one generation of workers into the economy after the other when that economy is changing; the idea that the market is going to heed all of the human concerns and still maximise profit is juvenile. . . Are we all in this together or are we all not?" - David Simon, creator of The Wire
That's all we republicans and conservatives want to do. Just round up every illegal and deport them. Let's just enslave them all and let them starve. Make them pick lettuce and keep the prices down. Whatever them make, we;ll figure out a way to just steal their money. We hate everyone who is non white and speaks with an accent. Sterilize all minority women. We refuse to tolerate anything.
None are so blind as those who will not see
Birds of a feather flock together
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink
Ignorance is bliss
Give him an inch and he will take a mile (the most apropos)
Ever wonder why places put up signs to not feed the seagulls (or in Florida the alligators)? It makes them just keep coming back for more.
Why do you insist on insulting people by assuming so many need help to get by? Give them some credit and dignity once in a while.

All these conservatives on here tried to dimiss it as "oh it's no big deal, he was just talking about the election". Im sure you remember who they were. But in reality he meant every word just how we took it. That's the GOP mind set. An these guys are or part of that base. This is the same junk Romney Believed and it's why he said what he said (47%). An its why he and the rest of his GOP cronies should never be in the white house.
I's more like your a Dem you give them fish, while you teach them how to fish, so they can get on there feet and start feeding them self's.
If your a republican, you don't give them ****. An on top of that, you fence of the lake and put guard dogs. Just to make sure they can't get anywhere near your fish.
