What kind of fucking idiot thought this comic worked as an anti-food-stamp/anti-Obama message and what kind of fucking idiot would not only take it that way but agree with it?
OH NO, DON’T TAKE MONEY FROM THE LARGEST MILITARY IN THE WORLD TO FEED PEOPLE ANYTHING BUT THAT
It’s a pro-foodstamp comic, bog.

Are they seriously THAT heartless, or are they just so dedicated to being absolutely contratrian to everything that the Obama administration does, they’ve lost all self-awareness? Maybe a bit of both?
