Why We Fight

South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer Compares Poor to 'Stray Animals' - Sphere News
"My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed," he told an audience in the town of Fountain Inn on Friday. "You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don't think too much further than that."

You want to know why I'm so hard on Republicans? It's shit like this. Comparing poor people to stray animals who shouldn't be fed, lest they breed.

These people are vicious, thuggish assholes, and they want to rule the country again.

Jesus, is every SC politician out of his damn mind?

I mean how much welfare is left. Didn't we basically dismantle the system in the nineties. Heartless people, aren't they?

Is there some hidden NC versus SC agenda in here somewhere?

Remember what they used to say about South Carolina in the pre-Civil War period: South Carolina is too small for a country, and too large for an insane asylum.

Based on 15 years of college argument papers, the average conservative still thinks all minorities and many whites stay on welfare their entire lives.

When I point out that Ohio limits welfare to three consecutive years, they flat out refuse to listen (or at least check the state law).
