Wtf? This popped up on my FB feed. I'm no fan of Obama. I went across party lines and voted for him, but I am very displeased. However, this picture is ridiculous. How fucking staged.

This picture pisses me off because:

1. They are assuming most Amercians are too dumb to not see how staged this is.

2. This puts out a very offensive image of welfare recipients. 

3. Pictures like this are damaging to the self esteem of people, especially moms, who need assistance and are trying their best. 


When I was a young single mom with my first two kids, I needed help and received it. It got me through college while also working. I remember feeling judged at the checkout at the grocery store when I used my EBT card. 

Even if the pic is real, wtf do they know about this lady's life?

Maybe being pissed off about a picture on FB is stupid considering all of the other shit going on, but social morale is important in times of trouble. Disgusting!

I've started just scrolling right on by any political posts because of shit like this. Even if I might agree with them.

It makes my blood boil.

I hate propaganda in general. It confuses the dumb people and dumb people are allowed to vote too.

Lmao off

That's terrible.


There's nothing wrong with having assistance if you need it, especially when it is used to help you so you can get back on your feet. They need to be more creative with their bullshit

Yeah, because nothing on the other side is staged.  It is all propaganda.  Sorry, but I don't believe much of what comes from both sides.

I have unfollowed 7 people on fb in the past 3 days. I can't stand political posts or vague-booking. Oh and I unfriend anyone who says they are cleaning up their friends list and comment if you wanna stay on theirs. Nope. I don't beg for friends.

I have met some Tea Party members and even attended events.  DH is active in politics and doesn't follow the party line.  I would like to say that not every Tea Party member is like your mother. Not sure if you were implying that or not. 

And just for FYI, DH is an elected member of the state Republican party and currently disagreeing on a particular subject.  He is in the miniority.  I won't go into specifics, because I am sure it will bore most.  I tune out most of the time.  Just don't like the label that most Conservatives, Reps, TP members get.  There are extremes in any party.  Just seems the loudest voice on the Internet and elsewhere is negatively generalizing the Right side.
