On a Mission from GOD

Bible says “Screw the Poor”

“The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” This bible quote was eloquently given on the floor of the house a week ago as they hammered out the worst possible farm bill in our nation’s history. It’s always the same old story when we live in a Plutocracy. The “big guys” are running things and there’s nothing we can do. This bible quote was given by a Tennessee Republican congressman named Stephen Fincher as he explained why is was absolutely necessary to cut $20 billion in food stamps(SNAP) over the next 10 years. He said, “The role of citizens, of Christians, of humanity is to take care of each other, but not for Washington to steal from those in the country and give to others in the country.”

I guess what this hypocritical bastard was saying was– don’t take my tax money and give food stamps to some non-working other citizen. Okay. And then Fincher voted to raise the crop insurance (that mostly goes to rich millionaires like him, by $9 billion over the next 10 years. Crop insurance is the government guarantee that my farm and your farm will make a guaranteed return of 14.5% on our investment. You better let that soak in to your brain for a minute.  I guess guaranteeing a business to be profitable is not socialism at all. We already do that for our banks, don’t we?

Mr. Fincher, the hypocritical bastard I’m writing about, has taken $3.48 million dollars of OUR money in payouts since 1999. Also let that soak in a minute. Fincher’s last check for 2012 was over $70,000. The majority of the Farm Bill subsidy payments go out in huge million dollar payouts to Big Ag and rich guys like Fincher. The bottom 80% of farmers, small family farms get an average of $5000 per year.

SNAP money is paid to families that make less than $30,000 per year. There is no ‘upper’ income limit to the Farm Bill subsidies. But, like Fincher says, that food stamp money is stealing. The tax money we give him is deserved.

    If he made less than $30k a year he might see this differently, although Mr. Fincher’s vision is a bit obscured. So sad – the ones who need the help are helpless.
