The link above will take you to the Huffington Post's basic version of the story I heard on Headline News. It's the same story that inspired me to write this little [uncensored] ditty...
There's No Such Thing as a Free Lunch
by: Married-White-Fiscally Conservative-Middle Class-College Educated-Woman
'Twas the season of giving, and across our great nation,
people geared up for shopping and taking vacation.
Their purses were hung by the coupons with care,
in hopes that their subsidies soon would be there.
On food stamps! On health care, unemployment, and WIC!
Your penchant for mooching...it makes me so sick!
Work for your money! Have some pride, use your head!
Get rid of your iPhone, your account's in the red.
Your plasma TV - is that something you need?
Take care of your family, but, PLEASE, ditch the greed.
Give back to the world your treasure and time,
and stop having kids on Uncle Sam's dime.
We've made it too easy, we're partly to blame,
but don't boast of your windfall, have you no shame?
Let's tighten the guidelines, take back the reins.
Our deficit's growing; put an end to these games.
No one should starve for being down on their luck,
but government assistance for all? Holy S***! What the F***?
