A crowd of people hoping to get federal housing assistance became unruly Wednesday morning with reports of fights breaking out in the crowd.So many hands out all at once, you can't expect some not to start swinging.
Between 8,000 and 10,000 lined up in Atlanta for rent discount vouchers. Or at least applications to fill out to hopefully get those vouchers. That's the government smarts at work for you. Don't create jobs. Don't provide incentives for work. Have thousands stand in line for two days in the heat for the chance to get "free" money.
It's the age of smart power.
People began lining up at the shopping center two days ago, and by Wednesday morning the crowd had grown to over several thousand people. East Point police, some wearing riot helmets, were patrolling the area. Firefighters and EMTs were attending to people who were overheating in the sun. Police from College Park, Hapeville, Fulton County and MARTA assisted in crowd control.The lines, the riots, the crowds, the heat exhaustion, the police in riot gear. It's Utopia. I feel like breaking out in song. More government programs please!
Felecia McGhee told the AJC she arrived around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday. She said the major problem began when people started breaking into the line and officials started moving the areas where they were handing out applications. She said she saw at least two small children trampled when the crowd rushed the building where the applications were to be handed out.So children get trampled. This is the change we can believe in.
Unless you earn the money you receive, you are a slave. Period. You are imprisoned and controlled by whoever you are begging for loose change. This is why the Founding Fathers designed a nation purposeful and directional in creating individual wealth and open opportunities.
They did it to set people free.
Liberal ideology, however, will put them back in chains.
But hey, it's only the occasional child trampling. It's only making people into beggars. It's only robbing individuals of self-respect and self-reliance. It's only giving authority over your life to a faceless politician to toss you crumbs from their lavish banquet, but only when they want and for how long they want.
No harm no foul, right? And who doesn't mind the occasional riot.
