I saw a Right Wing meme about welfare that hawked the notion that poor people were no better than birds and "civilization" should be above caring for those people.... This also reminded me of a day I heard a similar topic on Libertarian/Right Wing Tool/KABC RADIO'S LARRY ELDER Show; the talk show hosted by what one African American caller called "The whitest Black man on radio". Elder likened Health Care Insurance to car Insurance, comparing his troubled automobile to the aches, pains and diseases of human beings .... What is it about The Right Wing who make these awful comparisons? --- Back in 2010, another politician (S.C. Lt. Governor Bauer) likened poor people to vagrant cats ---- What is wrong with these people??? Especially the ones who "pour GOD over everything like syrup."* (my favorite line from "THE BEST MAN" written by GORE VIDAL)
