(You all know NewsMax, right? The ultra-conservative right wing media site who routinely publishes article about the dreaded welfare state and the evils of Obamacare, food stamps, the sorry state of social security and medicare and the dreaded 47% of deadbeats, cheats and lazy SOBs who take advantage of the poor long-suffering tax payers who subsidize them, right?)
Here's just a few articles to refresh your memory if you've forgotten:
I received an email today from Rasmussen with a link to a site which promised to show me how a simple Social Security mistake that is costing seniors up to $152,000 in benefits and offers to show me how to (and I quote) "exploit a little-known loophole," in order "To find out more about this loophole, and other money-making secrets for seniors."
It was signed: Your Friends at Newsmax
Here's the link - called "Free Stuff and Great Bargain Adventures for People Over 50"
It's chock-full of "free stuff." Government "free stuff." Tax-payer subsidized free stuff. And, for a small price, they are going to tell people how, regardless of their income, they can jump on the gravy train and grab those free social program benefits for themselves whether they need them or not.
Free health insurance, free drugs, free mammograms, free disease screening, and even low-cost or free dental care — and it's not Medicaid or Medicare
A simple way you could get an extra $1,000 added to family members' Social Security checks
Government-subsidized trips to vacation resorts worldwide
Special free dental programs for older people
A special toll-free hotline you can use to apply for free prescription drugs
An overlooked loophole called "FAASF" that could allow you to collect up to an extra $152,000 in Social Security payments
A government-funded organization that hands out free or low-cost hearing aids
How to get the government to PAY up to $6,500 to help lower your heating and cooling bill
So now, someone needs to tell me - are these programs good programs or bad programs? Are the people who collect them good people or bad people? Are those who attempt to sell the information good people or bad people? Or are they just money-hungry, two-faced hypocritical liars?

Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) who blasted a “physically fit” couple for using food stamps at a suburban Virginia grocery store, collected 370,000 dollars in federal stimulus money for his Oklahoma plumbing company. Mullin who brags about turning the plumbing company into a successful business never mentions the government help he received to make it thrive. Or if he did not need the money to prop up his plumbing firm, he never mentions that his business was “physically fit” and that he did not actually need stimulus money to keep it afloat.
Mullin has become a text book case in Republican hypocrisy. He attacks food stamp recipients for collecting a couple hundred dollars a month in assistance needed to eat, but says no word about collecting 370,000 dollars in federal assistance to install toilets and lay pipes.
“We like to say that dependability is more important than ability,” Bill Belichickism....
Ironically, that song's by Alanis Morisette, not Sheryl Crow... but I bet I just spelled both their names wrong...
Agree w/Brady here... the other thing that's driving me batsh1t lately is this current extremely blatant voter suppression drive. It's like there's no core principle other than "us and them," with "us" being white, male, and english-speaking. Oh of course it's not a 100% overlay, but that's the base. And based on being "in the club," face it, they feel entitled to all the fruits of the nation, whether it's the sapping of the rest of the country to make up for the social services deficits in red states, stealing the vote from blacks, latinos, and college students, or this hilarious example of "trying to get free stuff from the government the only time it's okay... when you don't actually need it."
