Some Misplaced Right-Wing Anger

The 'lady' in this video, so agitated by the number of Americans on food stamps, is right to be angry, but for the wrong reasons:

H/t Eric Dolan


  1. Aauugghh! "It gets incredibly comfortable to be in poverty..." !!??

    What is the matter with these people?

    48 million people cannot afford food! And that is not okay!

  2. More than anything else, I think it is the sanctimonious pontifications of the right that rankle the most, Karen.

  3. Lorne, it is Faux News. No credibility. Its counterpart Sun News in Canada is even worse.

  4. And of course both organizations preach to the converted, those who like their information simple and unambiguous, LeDaro. I almost envy their ability to go through life with such certainty, untroubled by nuance and gray, sleeping the sleep of the (self)righteous.

  5. Lorne,
    A poll revealed that:
    “A poll released by Fairleigh Dickinson University on Monday found that people who get their news from Fox News know significantly less about news both in the U.S. and the world than people who watch no news at all.”
    Fairleigh Dickinson University.

    Many other studies and polls have shown similar results.

    1. Somehow, LeDaro, I find that not surprising in the least.
