Found in a Grocery Store Parking Lot...

Steak and lobster.  Lots of it.  Sounds absolutely wonderful.

Look what they're apparently having to drink with this food.  Farookin' Mountain Dew?  120 cans of the stuff?

But wait a minute!  My tax dollars are paying for someone else to eat this?

This is so wrong on so many levels.

I hear ads on the radio imploring people to sign up for food stamps.  The ads carefully explain that just because you have a job and are making money doesn't mean you can't qualify for food stamps.  They also explain that just because you pay income taxes doesn't mean you can't qualify, either. 

I wonder what does disqualify you?  I have a job.  I pay income taxes.  Can I get free lobster and steak, too?  But if drinking Mountain Dew is part of the deal, then count me out.

Seriously for a moment – how can we fix insanity like this?  I can only think of one way: throw all  the bums out of political office, and start over with a collection of randomly selected ordinary citizens.

That ain't gonna happen, I know.  But it's the only solution I can think of (short of an actual revolution) that stands a chance of working...
