Nation of Moochers



Here’s the NYT editorial I quoted in the first panel.

This cartoon was partly inspired by this amazing Fox News graphic that was ridiculed on the Daily Show the other night:

entitlement-nation

The above confirms my belief that we need to call the social safety net something other than “entitlements.” The word, while technically correct, has been hopelessly conflated with “sense of entitlement” by those with a pro-1% agenda.

    These were great, so many of these arguments fall on their head when you take the next logical step. I can not understand how people see the underprivileged and poor class as the problem with the US. People who have nothing, seem less to blame than the people who have everything. Great comics!

    It really is amazing that people who’s main job is owning things can talk about others as moochers.
