#4 Think of all the lost bureaucratic patronage jobs if the money would just be handed directly to the parasites.

#8 In Ancient Rome there was a custom where 'client' plebeians would show up daily at their rich Patron's house before dawn to receive a stipend. They would go about their business under the understanding that they were their Patron's private Rent-A-Mob. How little things change over the years...

#9 Sssshhhhhh...Don't you know, that's why they killed teaching real history in schools. Human behavior is pretty consistent over the millenniums.

#10 The Dems are trying to retain their voter base. Most likely, they will increase thrir voter base as freeloaders move into Chicago from Detriot and other blue cities. Look for a hollowed out shell of a city as the life blood is sucked out.

#14 Hey, kids! Socialism is bitchen!
Get mucho free soup from our kitchen!
But the man -- so uncool! --
Cruelly covets your gruel,
So tomorrow we'll pitch all the rich in.

#15 And the day after that? What to do?
Chew the fat, grind the gristle anew...
To eventually savor
The fruits of your labor:
You ate all of us. Who'll eat you?

#16 For surely you'll be the survivor,
The last of your comrades alive?
Ersatz schooling and irony,
Tireless conspiring:
A truly Stakhanovite striver!
