Those Dickensian Republicans

25 Apr

Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?

First, thank you to my friend Jarrett for inspiring this story.  You just know the Republicans must read Charles Dickens and get moist when Scrooge declares: “Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?”  Of course, they probably hate our Scrooge for his turn of heart by the end of the story.  The latest move on behalf of the Republicans drinking the “kool aid” served up by the Tea Party is to get rid of Medicare (can’t stand some old folks) and to do undermine the efforts of the Food Stamp/ Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP program (cant stand poor hungry folks).  The GOP is screaming that spending has gotten out of control–translation: we have to protect the rich at all cost!  Slash programs for the needy, just as long as I get my tax breaks.  Want more evidence of the GOP agenda?  Look at fools like Scott Walker, better known as the Koch Brothers’ Bitch, or Tea Party criminal Paul LePage and Justice Clarence Thomas trying to abolish child protection labor laws.
