Socialism-Communism.  Pretending to care while spending others' money.  

When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.

I was on a forum discussing Bezos' donation of 10 mil for the climate.  Instead of being thankful, the little entitled commies criticized Bezos for not giving more.

 

Sure, that will make you want to give even more.

If you work hard for money, then you're wise about spending it.

 

If you get free money, then you blow it.

 

The second sentence describes government and handouts.
