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 SPLC’s Attack on Rush

PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:36:25 PM     Post Reply
When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
