Obama is a mean, old, selfish conservative in liberal clothing. I mean really, where is the outcry for universal pet insurance? How inhumane can this man possibly be to let pets suffer and die because their owners couldn’t afford Rover’s medication, prosthetic leg or even heart transplant?
How about food insurance? There are many people that go hungry. If we had free food insurance we would surely solve that problem immediately. Since the U.S. government thinks of itself as the only super-power tasked with policing the world, I suggest our benevolence be extended across the globe. What kind of people would we be if we provided free food insurance to only our selfish selves, and not the rest of the world? That would just not be right. Everybody has a right to a Big Mac!
Let’s not forget clothing. We can’t expect anyone to go without. That would be inhumane and un-American. I suggest we implement free clothing insurance immediately.
On second thought, screw insurance. Let’s just make everything free, period. Food, health care, pet care, cars, tv’s, phone service, internet service, whatever. That is the only self-less, humane and compassionate way to go. We have a right to these things!
Jonathan M. Finegold Catalan explains the flaw in my above rant:
As much as I would enjoy this “free” service (at the expense of other taxpayers) the fact is that social-insurance and welfare programs do not benefit the economy — or the recipient — over the long run. The welfare state has eroded the concept of personal responsibility, and for affected industries it has replaced the free market with a central economic system that promises higher costs and lower quality. The welfare state accomplishes the exact opposite of what it intends to do. It is a bane to the general wellbeing of society.
