The leftists in this country never stop pushing their agenda…it’s their job, it’s what they do! If you haven’t heard the latest wisdom from Time editor Mike Duffy, you will now. He was on a segment with Chris ‘Tingles’ Matthews’ Sunday show….here’s what he had to say yesterday. – See what you think about what was said. You can read find the story here.

We are all welfare queens and socialists now, according to TIME executive editor Michael Duffy.

Appearing on Chris Matthews‘ syndicated talk show, Duffy explained that it’s not just the elderly and the poor who receive entitlements and government subsidies — it’s everyone.

“We’re all socialists from the day we’re born. You don’t have to be poor or unemployed to be on welfare,” Duffy explained. “We’re all at the trough. We’re all welfare queens. Your house, and your healthcare, and your childcare. Well, maybe not your childcare. You know, my parking is subsidized. You know, you’re very subsidized. You know, and the whole country is built essentially on a series of assistance programs.”

“Explain that to the skeptic out there who says, ‘What’s this guy talking about?’” Matthews asked.

“You don’t have to just get direct payments in the form of Social Security or Medicare,” Duffy continued. “You get it in the form of tax benefits for your house or for child care or or for commuting or for parking. So it’s a totally subsidized nation. One nation subsidized.”

Veteran journalist Dan Rather chimed in that “the big corporations and people who make a lot of money” are also subsidized by the government in a variety of ways.

Duffy agreed, adding that his overall point is that “while the entitlement program is what’s driving the budget, the notion that it’s a few people, it’s all of us.”

Do you have any message you want to send to Duffy and the rest of the crowd that joined in the chorus?

    Slowly, but surely, the MSM is trying to legitimize and normalize socialism. They are preparing our minds for being dependent upon government and seeing ourselves essentially as socialists. Americans used to proudly declare that they were freedom loving capitalists; now they want us to proudly declare we are government-dependent socialists. Folks, they’re getting us prepared for complete enslavement! It all starts in how we view ourselves and the kind of language we employ to describe ourselves as Americans.

    While Bluffcreek is absolutely correct, I am outraged by Duffy’s statements. We are NOT all subsidized. I can tell you from my whole life’s experience that I am not and never have been. Nothing has “earned” me a break on anything and I don’t want one!

    Ya’ll know I’m not a name-caller but this guy gets one from me. It’s BA$TARD.

    Thanks for your patience with my rant.

    • Your rant is absolutely right…and you’re not alone with the feelings you expressed, including calling Duffy a ‘ba$stard’…he is just that, along with the rest of the gang that were chiming in!

    • I would like to add to your comment “Egotistical Bastard” thinks he can qualify “everyone” to fit his meme.

      I will throw out a deal to President Obama and his gang of miscreants

      I will pay my share of the national debt which is estimated around $52,000 and I will pay it out tomorrow. But in exchange I get a guaranteed 2% tax liability, across the board, until the day I die.

      And as an extra bonus they can keep my future social security payments cause I know they ain’t got the money anyhow

    • So glad you mentioned that…after I posted this piece, I regretted I didn’t include that ‘major’ fact. ~ Oh well…it matters not to the left, it’s their agenda that must be completed, simple as that.
