Last week, things got a little heated for Stephen Colbert. The host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report had a segment discussing Dan Snyder, owner of the NFL’s Washington Redskins.
In the piece, Colbert discussed Snyder’s journey to talk to members of various Native Americans to talk about their reaction to the football team’s name, which many have criticized as being racist, mostly because it’s racist.
Like all good-thinking Americans, I’ve always considered the food stamp program to be a terrible burden on this country. It forces the nation’s poor into a poverty trap and puts a serious strain on the country’s taxpayers.
That’s why I applauded when Congress came to a bipartisan agreement in January that would cut food stamp benefits by up to $90 a month for around 850,000 families, on top of the $36 a month cuts (the average for a family of four) from November.
But now new information is coming out that shows there might be a cost to these cuts.
But what’s good for the kiwis might not be good for us Americans. That’s why it’s nice to see a North Carolina school has come up with their own way to solve the bullying problem, by going right to the source.
They’re asking the bullied kid to stop being such a target.
There’s nothing new in saying the health care system in this country is out of control. Costs are skyrocketing, employment decisions–by both employer and employee–are being made with insurance in mind, and the abomination that is called Obamacare is threatening to turn us into a dystopian nation full of nightmares and socialism, but mostly nightmares about socialism.
That’s why we here at Soft Core Sophistry are clinging to the idea proposed by Georgia governor Nathan Deal: stop treating those that can’t pay.
