This Dem’s Foul Mouth Would Make a Sailor Blush…
The life circumstances into which a person is born often determines the direction of their future. The offsprings of the elite are provided with golden slippers while those born in the slums of Chicago are shoving cardboard slats into their shoes to cover the holes.
For the silver-spoon kids, life is grand. Theyâll easily get into an Ivy League University where theyâll immediately proceed to party like hell with a credit card not belonging to them until they are one day handed the family business and proceed to run it into the ground.
Children born into impoverished conditions arenât provided with any of the luxuries as their upturned collar peers. While those fortunate sperm recipients are learning to excel at golf, the poverty-stricken kids they couldnât care less about are learning to survive. If those kids even catch the glimpse of a dream, thatâs on them.
At a recent committee hearing, Rep. Kevin Hern (R., Okla.,) felt it pertinent enough to the discussion to share the story of how he had managed to pull his bootstraps out of the impoverishment he had exited his mothers birth canal into.
Humbly standing before the House Ways and Means Committee, Hernâs painfully shared remnants of the poverty-stricken childhood he has vowed to never lose sight of. From day to day he never knew âif the lights would still be on â¦ or if there would be food on the table.â He vividly recalls extended periods of hunger and having to attend school with an empty stomach.
Hernsâs tales of childhood woes were all the while leading to his point of ultimate importance. The US government had actually incentivized his stepfather to sit at home on his butt rather than look for work by loading him up with free stuff, inclusive of giving him money.
Technically itâs called âgovernment aidâ and itâs relatively easy to get if you know the game well enough. The only qualification for scoring this windfall is being poor and learning to remain that way.
It isnât unusual for children to strive to achieve at least as much as the person who is steering and guiding them through life has. But in the cases of the impoverished, that lesson is all too often how to live on someone elseâs dime.
Hern had been voicing his opposition to Biden proposing the boosting of unemployment benefits over the next five months as part of his already skyrocketed $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package. Hern made the point of there already literally thousands of citizens who have become complacent enough to turn down available jobs in favor of binge-watching Netflix.
Theyâve learned to adjust and it ainât so bad.
His story had been shared in efforts to help his Republican colleagues drill their point through the numb skulls of the Democrats in attendance.
But Democratic Representative Gwen Moore of Wisconsin didnât see it that way. She rared back and let her accusations fly.
âListen, colleagues, the lazy stepfather welfare queen boogeyman troll must not be paraded out again to steer us from our imperative to intervene in this national crisis. These families, these children, need our help right now.â Yeah. She said that.
Republican spokesman at Ways and Means, J.P. Freire, rushed to Hernâs defense by making it clear how Democrats are as free as Republicans to disagree with anyoneâs stance on any matter, but mocking the misfortune of a fellow colleague is uncalled for. Especially one who overcame their diversity.
Folks replying to this thread: Any familiarity with crushing poverty and its terrible correlation with abuse/neglect might not want to dunk on someone sharing how their experience motivated them to escape it.
Disagree with his policy point, sure, but maybe donât mock hardship.

Freire summed his feelings up in a tweet. âAny familiarity with crushing poverty and its terrible correlation with abuse/neglect might not want to dunk on someone sharing how their experience motivated them to escape it. Disagree with his policy point, sure, but maybe donât mock hardship.â
Bidenâs team has proposed adding an additional $400 per week to individual state benefits which would continue through the summer. We can only agree with Hernâs logical view of this not being the proper way to âput America back to work.â
As for Mooreâs foul-smelling mouthâ¦her fellow Dems wonât even listen to her soâ¦How do you feel about Bidenâs plan to slowly indoctrinate America into the clutches of Socialism? Are you liking him so far?
