There's an old joke that a liberal is just a conservative who hasn't been mugged. Conversely, I'm guessing a conservative is just a liberal who whinges on about freeloading welfare parasites until he ends up in a bad place:
For many of us welfare is something of a burden, something that most think is taken advantage of and used to substitute work and earning a living. From a distance this could be true in a lot of cases, and indeed many do use it for that purpose. But there are cases where it is needed, and the last hope for many families, especially in these times of financial downturns. Personal experience finds me in that situation now, due to recurring problems with my back. I can no longer work and have been forced to turn to the welfare system to supplement my wife's part time income while we sort out the mess we find ourselves in.
Tune in next month when Blogging Tory Sean, after surviving on taxpayer-supplied welfare and with help from taxpayer-funded physiotherapy, is back on his feet and whinging on about lazy, shiftless welfare bums. You know it's coming.
