Says Some Guy on the Internet

Every so often I read a comment some guy on the internet makes and I thinks to myself; "Self, you ought to put that on your blog because it's a pretty good comment". And then I see some other shiny article and forget about it. Well this time I am posting it first.

This guy on the internet is a fellow by the name of JohnSmith112 (Disqus) commenting on this article. And he spake thusly:

I posted this before -

"The mentality of this country actually reminds me of something that I read in the Yahoo comment section -
The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing. Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.
2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't."
3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens or countries that clearly hate us.

Am I the only one missing something?

Well said, guy on the internet. Well said.
