I found this comment on Huffington Post under the topic: Beck Borrows Lines From Obama 2008 Stump Speech During DC Rally.
Since it speaks to so many of the ideals of the modern “progressive”, I wanted to share it on this blog:
“Joe gets up in the morning and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his coffee. The water is clean because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow he takes his daily medication with is safe because some stupid commie liberal fought to ensure it’s safety.
All but $10 of his medications are a are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance – so Joe gets it too.
On the shampoo label the ingredients are all properly labeled because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body.
Outside Joe breathes deeply of clean air because some wacko environmentalist fought against industrial pollution.
He walks the government provided sidewalk to the subway for his government subsidized ride to work.
Joe’s job provides him with excellent pay, medical benefits, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.
If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed workman’s comp kicks in because some stupid liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of an injury or temporary situation.
At noon Joe goes to the bank to pay bills where his deposit is insured by the FDIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers.
He visits his father who survives on social security supplied because some liberals worked for it.
