Where's The "Compassionate" Socialism?

They're popping up faster than dandelions in a Spring meadow.

Tent cities.

Just Google the term and you'll come across all sorts of news stories about tent settlements popping up everywhere, as the unemployed and the newly displaced foreclosure victims look desperately for a place to go. You'll find plenty of pictures.

Folks, just to show that I'm not the "heartless hater" that liberals love to call conservatives, in this post I'm going to be a little bit socialist.

The thing I really want to know is this: out of all those billions of dollars The Obamessiah handed out recently, how much is going to actually relieve the people who are truly troubled, like the tent dwellers? News organizations estimate that the stimulus package contained over 9,000 pork barrel earmarks, most of them for Democrat congressional constituencies.

While corrupt and incompentant executives are paying themselves bonuses out of public money they receive, what are all the Democrats and whiny liberals doing to help relieve the legions of people out there living in tents or out of their cars?

I thought so.

Socialism in its honest and true form: public spending to benefit cronies while the people still suffer. The only people that socialism helps is the politicians who collect the taxes.

I'll bet that dumb liberal ape named George Sorass (?) of must be gloating with glee over seeing the tent cities! Oh wait, is his name Horsass? Whoops, I think it's Soros?
