You know, I was thinking about this. You know, if you were a slave in the old South, what did you get as a slave? You got free room and board, you got free money, and you got rewarded for having children because that was just, you know, tomorrow's slave. So, you got a free house, you got free money, and you got rewarded for having children. Can I ask a question? How's that different from welfare? You get a free house, you get free food, and you get rewarded for having children. Oh, wait a minute, hold on a second. There is a difference: The slave had to work for it.No matter how low I think the right-wing can go, they always prove me wrong by going lower. And he's not the only one. Michael Medved has been excusing slavery for years. It's a tragedy that this is what passes for thought, or humanity, in the right-wing circles.
And my parents wonder why I left the Republican Party 8-years ago and have becoming increasingly critical and repelled by them and the rest of the self-identified "conservatives." The conservative movement has devolved into Jim Crow and they are, almost universally, shit stains on the underwear of life.
