TIME Executive Editor: ´We´re All
Welfare Queens´ and ´Socialists
From the Day We´re Born´

NewsBusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/4/2013 9:21:14 AM

"We´re all socialists from the day we´re born. You know, you don´t have to be poor or unemployed to be on Welfare. We´re all at the trough. We´re all Welfare queens." So said TIME magazine executive editor Michael Duffy on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show Sunday (video follows with transcript and commentary): CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: The word we never say besides entitlements, the even worse word is socialism. But in effect, once you’re 65 in this country when it comes to health, you´re guaranteed to be taken care of.

Comments:
Really?? There was a time when you could laugh and cast comments like these aside. Now it is frightening to realize idiots like him are really serious. It´s horrifying there are so many leftists who actually believe these twisted, perverse lies.

When the Welfare Queens contribute toward their welfare for 44 years, then they can start collecting their benefit.s/

A man who has been paid all his life without ever having produced anything of value, and all your peers are the same, it´s not surprising that you think we´re all on welfare.

Boy, do I hate having to admit that I agree with libs like this guy, but the fact is that it´s a very rare individual who is not getting a government check of some kind; entitlement, subsidy, etc or a check from a private source that, within five layers of checks, is also getting a government check. This country will continue to lean farther and farther to starboard until it simply goes belly up, unless we get rid of hundreds of thousands of government chair warmers and government checks stop flying around like confetti on New Years Eve.

#3, aren´t you a little mixed up? Starboard is to the right, and I see no signs of the country moving that way.
As for entitlements, I guess you call something that you have paid for (SS) government largesse? As for medicare, I have had numerous pay slips that show money taken from my check for that, and now that I am old enough to be on medicare, every month money is taken from my Social Security check to pay for that. (BTW, my SS check is so small it hardly covers the amount spent on groceries each month. I rely on investments and a pension to survive, neither of which the government provides.)

This kind of careless, almost incoherent reasoning is, or ought to be, extraordinary coming from a high school, still less a college graduate.

All taxpayers who receive Federal(i.e. taxpayer)funds of any kind or for any purpose are socialists and Welfare Queens?

That would seem more than a little extreme. Is it an attempt to establish moral equivalence? Defining deviancy down(or up)?

One wonders what a drug screen would reveal about people capable of thinking(!) in such a manner. Could chronic cannabis intoxication account for such confusion? I wish this could be investigated. It´s just a hunch - but if there is anything to it, it could explain a lot that otherwise doesn´t make sense.

But in any case, they shore ain´t learnin´ them kids nothing in school no more.

When 50% of the population takes out more goods and services than they produce, its impossible for some to not produce more than they take.
Those of us that started working as kids and paid into the "system" our entire lives
are not welfare queens. We are the producers that made it possible for millions and millions to do absolutly no work their entire lives.
When we start to recover some of our past savings back the left wants to say the government is giving us something.

Fire Duffey. He is a fool. There a few of us left that are responsible, who work, pay our bills, raise our families. Alas, we also pick up the tab for those that are irresponsible as that is what socialism is - we are in it together, we are partners, -- that means we get the tab for their bad judgments and irresponsibility. Thanks Duffey. Hope you have a miserable socialist life.

I don´t know where people come up with the argument that Seniors on Medicare get FREE health care. I´m paying Medicare premiums that are almost exactly the same amounts, perhaps higher, as the premiums I was paying for my private coverage before I turned 65. So I don´t exactly consider that being FREE.

This year One of the premiums went up 150% !! Fortunately I had changed that coverage to a different provider during the time that the government ALLOWED me to do so. I was notified of the intended increase after my rollover period had passed, which means if I had not made the change during the ALLOWED time period I would have been stuck with paying the 150% increased premium for the entire year, until my next ALLOWED rollover period.

Medicare is definitely not free ... and Seniors have to pay attention so as not to be locked into these arbitrary (Obamacare-caused) expenses.

I´ve got news for people like Christ Matthews who use Social Security to defend welfare dependency. First of all, except for people with phony disabilities and foreigners who are able scam the system to get benefits, most SS recipients worked all their lives and paid into the system only to receive the meager benefits they are given. Moreover, the average welfare family in the U.S. receives over $60,000 in annual benefits compared to about $14,700 for those on social security. Any fair-minded person will acknowledge that this is unfair, and it is disgusting for the ´progressives´ to use this argument.

I am 63, and have NEVER yet received one thin dime from the US government. No welfare, medicaid, medicare, food stamps, social security, unemployment, tuition assistance, VA benefits--Nothing.
The only checks I ever got from the government were my tax refunds--probably 30 years ago--where I had too much tax withheld.
My older siblings and parents...same thing.

And I´m sure there are millions of people just like me in this regard.
So, Noel, how does that make me a socialist?

Giving credit to Socialism for everything people do together. Roads are socialism, etc. Entirely ignoring the difference between free association and government coercion.

#5 - Weed would produce something more musical. This is the acausal babbling of cocainated "sky talking." Or just a lifetime stuck on stupid.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
