Sandcrawler PSA: Liberalspeak

While listening to NPR the other day I had an epiphany.

"I had children that would come up to me and say, 'I really don't want to be out of school for Christmas because we know we're not going to get much to eat,' " Godfrey says. "We can say over and over and over, 'It's a parent's responsibility to feed their children.' But the bottom line is, they don't."
They don't? You mean even with all those free government programs?
The reasons for that are complex,
Get that the reasons are complex.

That's when I realized Complex is a by-word that liberals use instead of worthless piece of shit when confronted with the fact that no matter how hard you try, you just can't polish a turd.

1 It's called taking responsibility. Something that libs say people don't have to do anymore.

2 The other epiphany you should have had is that no child has ever come up to that person and said he didn't want to be out of school because he wouldn't get to eat.

What a crock of @%$@.

4 Not feeding a child over the holidays curbs childhood obesity, so it's all good welfare Moms!

5 @Kevin, Yeah maybe, maybe not..... of course wh's kind of following a narrative there.

But my Mom was a teacher so you never know, also a kid might, you know, stretch. But for sure there are some clear cases of POS syndrome.

But what caught my eye in the piece was where they tried to spin spending your food stamps on crack while your kids are hungry as a "complex problem"

No one so complex that .45 caliburs to the back of the head won't fix.

And then you realize that the kids probably won't grow up knowing much better so it becomes an exponential problem. Each generation getting further from work and independence.

And I'm sure you guys know I'm pretty liberal about helping those who will help themselves when you can afford to.

Its the ones where helping them is a futile act that bothers me.

But liberals can't even admit that some are beyond help and its not really "complex" unless you're searching for excuses for these "victims".

6 "It's complex" is often used as a way to squelch further conversation on the matter.

So Global Warming is "complex"

Gun Control is "complex"

Race relations is "complex"

Abortion rights are "complex"

You see how this works? So you argue that your point is valid and then when challenged, instead of refuting the evidence at hand, you say "it's complex".

7 @Gork we're catching on.... it avoids any discussion of inconvenient facts.

8 No child in the USA should go hungry that seems rather simple, not to complex.And Howie you are right we probably do need more programs to make sure that fewer kids have to go without food, apparently private charities aren't sufficient either

9 We have the power to remove children from abusive or negligent "homes", but won't do it because the trash parent(s) won't get their welfare checks then. They will love comrade Obama less.

10 How will the children learn how to vote if somebody like ubama doesn't feed them? And he won't even make them do chores either.
