What do you say when you make chit-chat in the checkout line? Do you comment on a sale, the cover of the latest US Weekly, someone's lovely brooch -- or do you just start yelling at random strangers for using food stamps? For you, it is probably not the latter, but for one charming lady in a Walmart, it certainly is!


A video posted online last week by "What'd We Learn? 4 the People," and first noted by Hot Topics, shows an unidentified woman berating a total stranger for using food stamps to help feed his kid.

It's not clear how the conversation started, though the first thing we hear out of this classy lady's mouth is something about how "Usually when you're raised that way you wanna work real harder NOT to go back." You know, because it's so easy these days for someone who has been poor their whole life to just stop being poor.

“I put in 50 to 60 hour weeks. I’m trying to provide for my family,” the father said, but this lady weren't having none of it, so she shot right back, “You’re not providing for it, I am. The government is. They take it out of my check, bullshit they don’t.”

The man then suggested that if it upset her so, she should perhaps contact a local representative to complain, or just vote Republican, to which she replied, “Oh, trust me — I am not a bleeding heart fucking liberal,” as if anyone would have confused her for one. He tried to ignore, but to no avail. She just kept right on insisting, "If I’m gonna pay for all your shit the least I can do is talk.” Then she started fuming about "people like you," and "Hillary and Bernie supporters." Which I guess would be people like me who think it is weird to desperately want children to starve to death.

It's tough for many Republicans, who want only for businesses to be allowed to pay people far less than they need to live on, and then for those people to not go on food stamps or accept any government aid whatsoever. And also for them not to have money to go to college to get a better job and to not have any health care so they don't have access to preventative medicine, so that then when they get seriously ill or have a heart attack or an accident and get rushed to the hospital, they end up in debt for the rest of their lives. Is that really too much to ask? Couldn't they be just a little more noble?

Just think of all these people straight-up refusing to just not be poor! And then also wanting to eat? And wanting their kids to eat? It is all too much! Why don't they just magically get better jobs? Or they could just starve to death and decrease the surplus population!

All of which would be far more pleasant for this random lady in a Walmart than having to pay THIRTY-SIX AMERICAN DOLLARS a year in taxes that go to programs like SNAP that help feed people!

[wonkbar]<a href="http://wonkette.com/598633/tennessee-poors-refuse-to-be-drug-addicted-welfare-queens-unfair"></a>[/wonkbar]All patriotic Americans know those welfare people are just spending their money on drugs. (Except how every time states drug test food stamp recipients, they find a whole bunch of nothing.) Maybe they're using everybody else's HARD EARNED TAX MONEYS to get their palms read on Caribbean cruises! (Nope.) Well at least they're probably frivolously spending money on lobster, which is unfair and probably not even legal.

In comparison, subsidies to hard working corporations make up about $6000 of that lady's tax dollars per year. But if they cut the SNAP program, those companies could get $6036! And the mean lady could have the sheer joy of watching children dying in the street after having a bunch of cheerful, hypothermia-induced hallucinations like that darling "The Little Match Girl" story!

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.


Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
