Condi Rice Sums Up the Ruling Class Dogma in 75 Words

To say nothing of the corporate welfare Republicans endorse, this quote attributed to Condi Rice is particularly ironic coming on the news that Republican-leaning counties are among the fastest growing food stamp recipients.

Borrowing from what I have already said on Rice’s quote: I, for one, have no problem deriding government social welfare programs, but a person is certainly owed justice, that is, entitled to have her rights respected. Moreover, considering the extent to which governments (at the behest of Republican politicians too) ratchet up the costs of living and stifle economic opportunity, any welfare benefits people receive seem pretty measly when thinking about who suffer the brunt of state power.

Condi’s preaching people should turn the other cheek, of course, once she’s already slapped them silly.
