According to the Boston Herald, Boston Marathon bomber and mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev – along with his brainwashed wife and little girl – was living off of welfare benefits.
You know… the kind that’s doled out by the state government and funded by state taxpayers… many of whom got blown up or seriously injured during Tsarnaev’s violent expression of anti-Americanism.
So thanks to the bleeding heart, rob-the-rich-to-pay-the-lazy, let’s-talk-about-how-we-feel-instead-of-the-facts government system we have in place, we got a devastating national tragedy and a feather in the terrorist’s cap.
If that’s true, then it’s not entirely out of line to blame the government for the bombing. I mean, it did fund it after all; if Tsarnaev had been forced to use his own money to provide for his family, he maybe wouldn’t have so much left over to create the two bombs that did go off and the other ones he was planning on detonating.
Yet Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid still wants to claim that “Government is not inherently bad. It is inherently good.”
If it’s “inherently good” like he claims then it’s in a Jimmy Carter kind-of way. Not the present-day Jimmy Carter, who has become inherently bad in his self-centered quest for personal validation, but the man who bumbled the presidency, the economy and the American dream with the best of intentions all those decades ago.
In case I’m not being clear, let me rephrase myself as bluntly as possible…
If Senator Reid is right, then government is inherently good and simultaneously inherently stupid.
Which makes it bad anyway.
So even if Reid is right in his claim, he’s still completely and inexcusably wrong overall.
