Get Ready for the Poverty Deniers

Post by Guest on Thu Sep 29, 2011 8:47 am

I knew this was coming. It's a trend I wrote about last year. As the US economy continues to struggle, the free-market, get-the-government-off-my-back organizations will become more and more insistent that unemployed Americans are losers and loafers too lazy to help themselves.

The latest evidence of this propaganda campaign surfaced a few weeks ago when the Heritage Foundation published a "report" (a word that sounds very official) asserting that the "actual standard of living of America's poor -- in terms of amenities in the home, housing, food consumption, and nutrition -- is far higher than expected."

It's the sort of claim that makes good campaign fodder, like holding up a copy of the want ads in front of a crowd and announcing, "Anyone who's looking for a job should just look right here!" What they never mention is that in most cities right now, dozens if not hundreds of applicants are chasing each of those job postings.

Unless someone doe never read, see TV news, goes on the internet and goes out in society today. This people would have to be considered ignorant, racist, bigots, etc.

There only reason to bring this stuff up in front of the hurting population is to further hurt and be more mean. It is like insisting that everything to be "paid for." If you have no money and no job, you need help and support. Not to be torn apart. The person still has to try, but not to get mean at over the situation that no one asked for.
