Ah yes, it is December 5th, more precisely: the Reason for the Season. That is because it's the Eve of St. Nicholas. On this day in former times children put out carrots, hay, and straw for St. Nicholas' horse in hopes that the jolly ole' fella' would leave them some food stamps.
So who was St. Nicholas? I'm so glad you asked. According to the St. Nicholas Center -- yes, there really is such a place -- the true story of Santa Claus begins with this guy who was a "good Christian" and obeyed Jesus' words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor" -- tell that to a Christian in the USA today and them be fighting words. The more popular phrase you hear from Christians today -- as with all the other faiths too I might ad -- is, "I ain't selling shit for the poor...." Okay, they don't put it that way, here's how they put it: "We’re taking action to reform our SNAP program in order to restore the dignity of work to a sizable segment of our population and be respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program.”
The Secretary of Agriculture by the name of Sonny Perdue said that! And to him I say: Really! "Dignity of Work." After days with your Billionaire Think Tank friends that's the best you can do? It's bullshit and you know it. Nothing more than George Orwell's Doublespeak to confuse the issue and tell your rich pals what they need to hear to help them sleep at night. The reality of your statement is that you are blaming the poor for being poor. It's like challenging a one-legged man to an ass-kicking contest: "I'm going to take away your government handout so you can be proud of yourself again." Gosh, you guys must really think we're stupid! You just added another thousand people to your homeless payroll and you know it.
|Sonny Perdue and the only Halo he'll ever receive.|
It's time for a revolution folks. No more talk. This is the greatest insult to the human race ever.
Oh, wait, we're talking about St. Nicholas aren't we.
Here's all you need to know: St Nicholas helped the poor, Millionaire Perdue helps the rich. Period!
