I just broke brains by showing the Lifeline Assistance Program was created by Reagan, not Obama.
Seriously, it stunned this Libertarian cunt into silence.
I use that to get ridof Libertarians on facebook. They send me a nasty PM, unfriend me and go right on posting about Obamaphones.
Let's see - I showed you a video where people aren't getting ONE phone - they're getting SEVERAL. #oops
Then I mentioned people who maybe shouldn't be receiving entitlements and you say it's "racist" - why is that Stella? I didn't mention race, now did I? #oops
It just so happens that the people I know who abuse the system are white and as far as those at WalMart etc, could be white black or brown. But I'm a racist. Got it. Jim Crow and shit, right on.
You on the other hand are either a moron or a liar - I suspect both. Have fun with your like-minded buddies. Adios!
Best part: that government project was started under Bush. You know, the once and former God Emperor sent to save Humanity, who failed so badly that he has been wiped entirely from the modern conservative memory.
Consistent conservatives, like Daniel Larison, criticized Bush for the program at the time and criticized Obama for continuing it, and then criticized conservative propagandists who tried to make out that Obama started the whole thing. But the likes of Daniel Larison are very rare, unfortunately.
When I was arguing with that guy I did some googling and found that some of this Lifeline stuff started under Reaganchrist.
Boycotting them won't really hurt employees, though, because people who won't eat there will simply eat elsewhere and the jobs will be redistributed. DUDE. I like that idea.
My thought is that if everyone who isn't eating there anymore sent the CEO a dime, he would have a physical manifestation of how much business he was losing. It would be a satisfyingly insulting way of flipping him off.
Get me a mailing addy.
I posted a link on facebook the other day saying that there was a black Friday boycott planned for WalMart.
Somebody asked me how that helps WalMart employees. WELL, LET'S SEE:
They're typically doing the work of at least three people (ever notice how WallyWerld always has 20 odd registers and never more than 3 or 4 open?) and they aren't paid commission, so the less sold, the easier it is for them to earn their cheapass paycheck
Black Friday is living hell at ANY retail establishment. It sucks at RADIOSHACK.
So even if not enough people boycott to make a dent (which they won't) EVERY MOTHERFUCKER THAT STAYS AWAY MAKES THE DAY THAT MUCH EASIER.
