House leader Eric Cantor just said we could solve the USA deficit problem if only we could cut those icky "entitlement programs."

Screw public entitlement (which used to be called social support and benefits, by the way), we need to save that money for more important things, like corporate wealthcare!
MyMy asks a good question; "what is government for except for 'promoting the general welfare' rather than protecting blind and stupid private interests?"
Well, besides ensuring the rich stay rich, it's also important to have government around to keep the trouble makers down. Like these two woman in Texas, who desperately needed to be assaulted by two cops (for littering) and have dirty rubber gloves shoved inside their private orifices.
We might as well be ruled by Cthulhu...
“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism.”
--Franklin D. Roosevelt
