Money Grows on Trees

I was flipping radio stations today and happened to catch Rush Limbaugh talking about this story coming out of Detroit.  The video is….telling.

 A local reporter from a Detroit radio station interviewed a woman waiting in line for “stimulus” money.  The audio was played on Limbaugh’s program but I couldn’t find it online. 

Instead, here is the transcript

ROGULSKI( ed: the reporter):  Did you get an application to fill out yet?

WOMAN( ed: the welfare case):  I sure did.  And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.

ROGULSKI:  Will you know today how much money you’re getting?

WOMAN:  No, I won’t, but I’m waiting for a phone call.

ROGULSKI:  Where’s the money coming from?

WOMAN:  I believe it’s coming from the City of Detroit or the state.

ROGULSKI:  Where did they get it from?

WOMAN:  Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.

ROGULSKI:  And where did Obama get the funds?

WOMAN:  Obama getting the funds from… Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth.  He’s the president.

ROGULSKI:  In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.

 

Maybe Obama got it from the money trees Michelle is growing in her garden.

I guess the new word for welfare in Orwellian speak is “stimulus”.

 Finally, this reminded me of an exchange before the election…

    Women think of money like air, it just is and it is only greedy people that keep everyone from getting as much money as they need.

    • Thats why it is so important to dehumanize people of means by calling them greedy and the like. Much easier to feel guilt free when you steal their money.

      The fact that so many women are both sheeple and have a entitlement mentality doesn’t help.

        Yes.

        There are plenty of men who say that women will curse the day that government starts taking away their freedom for all this. I always point out that women won’t notice the difference since all but a handful have no interested in freedom at all. Most of them would rather the checks keep coming.

    Reminds me of the Simpsons:

    Bart: “Didn’t you wonder why you were getting checks for doing absolutely nothing?”

    Grampa: “I figured because the Democrats were in power again.”

    Yup. Women in general value security much more than freedom.

      with all due respect, gentlemen, you might want to research this information about women, as it is not clear whether you speak from personal experience, or from having researched some data gathered in scientific settings. Hasty generalizations are illogical.

    Money does grow on trees you asshat…Well flax and cotton, but close enough. And in fact, most money exists as a virtual digit on the computer screen. You are stuck in the mode of trying to induce scarcity because you need the pangs of hunger to direct your partners towards you. Well, fair enough. I just hope you know what that means over millions of years in a civilized society.
