Holy crap! I’m surprised this loon can tie his own shoes. His brain must be constantly fighting over how to do so.

It’s classic Ayn Rand.

Let me ‘splain why I’m no stinkin’ libturd hypocrite.

Let me set the record straight. Yes, I participate in government programs of which I adamantly oppose. Many of them, actually. Am I a hypocrite for participating in programs that I oppose? If it was that simple, and if participation demonstrated support, then of course. But, my reason for participation in government programs often is not directly related to that issue in and of itself, and it certainly does not demonstrate support. For instance, I participate in government programs in order to stay out of the courts, or jail, so that I can take care of my family; other things I do to avoid fines or for other financial reasons; and some are simply because it is the only practical choice. With each situation, I have to evaluate the consequences of participating or not participating.

I hope that clears things up.

But I am doing Gods Work by adopting eight children besides the two I already have!

The fact that I cannot support them all with my own income doesn’t prove that I ever intended to take government supplied money or health benefits. I am a simple and devout Christian and I assumed the Lord would provide what we needed to survive.

Unfortunately, God must have been distracted or else-wise occupied and did not freely provide us with the needed material goods to keep a family of 12 going. Therefore I had absolutely no choice other than to apply for and take government benefits even though they are evil and socialist and contrary to Gods plan for America.

To assume that this means that I endorse or approve of anyone else receiving the same benefits is simply untrue. I still oppose anyone other than me and my own family getting government benefits, ever, for any reason!

You people calling me a hypocrite are endangering yourself with Gods judgement because you are questioning Gods will! It was God himself who told me to adopt those eight children that I could not adequately provide for on my own. Since God did not also provide perfect health for my ten children and didn’t make me rich overnight this proves that he must have intended for my family to receive medicaid benefits!

You cannot compare my families situation to that of the non-white “Welfare Queens” we read about who spend their time driving a new model Cadillac and eating foie gras and caviar every night while ignoring their children in favor of garnering dates with prospective future baby daddies.

My self created by choice overlarge family deserves the support and backing of the government because it was ordained by God himself!

Unlike the other families on government benefits mine is headed by a man who is righteous and sure in the providence of the Lord. Since the Lord has not seen fit to provide adequately for my family in other ways the only conclusion left is that he meant for me to take advantage of government support.

So don’t you dare call me a hypocrite for opposing the self-same programs that I have taken advantage of, I am only doing it because it is the Lords will. - Greg Collett

Cognitive dissonance. Jesus H Christmas in a Mr. Softee Truck. What the fuck are these people on?

It’s classic Ayn Rand.

If it was classic Ayn Rand he would put the adopted kids to work in his free market sweatshop.

Oh, come on, people. He’s just taking back a little of what has been stolen from his hard work through the theft that is taxation.

In fact, when you think about it, if you truly oppose any entitlement, you have not just a right but a duty to claim as much of the entitlement as you can. That way, you ensure that as much money flows to the makers (and as little to the takers) as possible.
