Why do you have a problem with people receiving GOV assistants but not corporations?

[quote:Anonymous Coward 25342985:MV8yMDQzOTY3XzM0MzQ4NzYyXzdGMjUxRURG] [quote:Anonymous Coward 271y14781:MV8yMDQzOTY3XzM0MzQ0MzgxXzM1NzA3NThG] corporations are owned by people so it makes no real difference. [/quote] Actually it makes a real difference to the destitute and disabled folks who receive government assistance, such as it is. They get a tiny pittance each month - not enough to actually live decently, often not even enough to scrape by - but every little bit helps. These subsidies are often the last "firewall" between people and homelessness, starvation, and/or death. The huge corporate welfare pigs (Oil, Big Ag, Finance, Defense, Pharma) get millions, sometimes billions, that are most definitely not a "firewall" keeping them from going out of business. It's just extra government pork gravy to them. A lot of the people on this board are racists, misogynists, homophobes, religious zealots, etc. And a large number of them aim their hate at the specific demographic groups that are more likely to be destitute and relying upon government assistance. They would enjoy seeing this population starve and die, homeless in the streets. They use hateful urban legend/myths like the people on food stamps eating t-bone steaks all the time and the so-called welfare queens driving Cadillacs to help fuel their hate, even though they are fantasy. I was on food stamps once, for a short time. It was only enough to buy oatmeal, peanut butter, rice, beans, mac & cheese, and once a week a can of salmon or tuna fish, if you were lucky. Not exactly eating high on the hog, like the corporate welfare queens do. More like leftover chitlins. [/quote]
A lot of you people here on GLP seem to think people on welfare(the vets, the disabled, the old, people who make under 20k) are the problem. But there is no outrage or anger for the companies who make billions yet find ways to stick their hands in the pot. When you come one here and make threads about people who receive "handouts" when most of them actually need all the help they can get but fail to mention companies who exploit gov assistants you look like a bunch of selective problem solving hypocrite. How can you sit behind your screen and bash these people yet turn the other way at the real problem. Its like the cop who would rather chase down someone peeing in an ally instead of the guy mugging down the street.
We need to do better.
