I have to disagree with you on this. This, in its many manifestations around the country, is just a resurrection of the old "welfare queen" canard that was advanced in the 80's.

Good thoughts,

Bob, I knew you were a top-shelf mentalist, but quit showing off!

That's what happens when I post from my phone. But it was a really long line at Best Buy.

Disagree . . . we can deconstruct the words like lawyers, but that is not the right tool here. The intent, like our collective interest in magic, is to plant false memories and images: this is hypnosis to plant the false image that welfare user=wanton flagrant money abuser. It provides excellent misdirection and cover for the military and corporate thieves hiding in plain sight.

It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I won't forget you Robert.
