TIME Executive Editor: ‘We’re All Welfare Queens’ and ‘Socialists From the Day We’re Born’




“We’re all socialists from the day we’re born. You know, you don’t have to be poor or unemployed to be on Welfare. We’re all at the trough. We’re all Welfare queens.”

So said TIME magazine executive editor Michael Duffy on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show Sunday (video follows with transcript and commentary):”



 Video at the link … As someone who has never taken a dime in unemployment benefits or any other type of government provided , tax-payer funded largesse , I can say that neither I nor any of my successful small business owning family members have ever lined up at ” the trough” . This comment is very revealing of the leftist mentality that everyone expects something for nothing . 

    It is indicative of the problems that we as a society are faced with today . The people who most adhere to this philosophy control , or have controlled , the narrative for two generations and have succeeded in beating the life out of the American ” can do ” spirit . No longer are we a people that when faced with adversity , buck up and do what must be done to elevate our condition … No , today all you hear is ” the government must do something ” or ” there ought to be a law ” . For shame …

   Benjamin Franklin said it best two hundred plus years ago : ” When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

How prophetic .
