The United States nation of “give me” at work here. (h/t Moonbattery)

Thirty thousand people turned out in East Point on Wednesday seeking applications for government-subsidized housing, and their confusion and frustration, combined with the summer heat, led to a chaotic mob scene that left 62 people injured.

At the Tri-Cities Plaza Shopping Center, emergency vehicles passed each other, transporting 20 people to hospitals. Medical and police command posts were set up on scene. East Point police wore riot gear. Officers from four other agencies supported them. Yet no arrests were made.

All of this resulted from people attempting to obtain Section 8 housing applications and, against long odds, later securing vouchers for affordable residences. Some waited in line for two days for the applications.

The Democrats have succeeded in making this once great nation into a bunch of freeloaders who cannot be bothered to get off the couch to work. I mean why? The government will give you money for free….of course it’s the taxpayers money but who cares about them. They are the ones actually getting off their asses to work while the rest of the nation do nothing, and pay nothing.

Yeah, I’m ranting a bit…especially after watching the yahoo Ed Schultz and his guest Ron Mott in the video below. If you don’t want your blood pressure to rise intolerably skip most of the video and just go to the 10 minute mark.

I wanna puke. We ARE better than this. People shouldn’t be on welfare forever, they shouldn’t be in free housing forever, and they shouldn’t EXPECT to get everything for free. You need assistance for a few months, ok….but look for and get a job. There are jobs out there. You just need may need to take an entry-level position in your field.

Then there are people who have no intention of getting a job because why should they? They get it all for free anyways. Just like Schultz’s guest said….it’s just like winning a lottery ticket for these people.

A program that was intended to give someone in need a home FOR AWHILE, until they got back on their feet, has over the years morphed (thanks to the Democrats) into a freebie for life. You get a free home and you never move. That’s why there is never any additional Section 8 housing because none of the freeloaders leave.

Partial transcript:

…This is a sprint from sanity. Like folks from Atlanta yesterday, rioting over those subsidized housing handouts. Or illegal’s protesting being treated like oh, illegals!

Think about that for a moment.

People who shouldn’t even be here protesting their simple lack of rights here. Arguing it’s illegal to treat illegals as if they’re illegal. Even though….HELLO, YOUR ILLEGAL!

When people aren’t even entitled to be here feel entitled to demand entitlements here is it any wonder everyone feels entitled here?

No wonder so many refuse to get off the couch without first demanding someone first give them a check.

We don’t buy cars without a cash for clunkers program. We don’t buy homes without a housing credit program.

Everyone is a victim. And everyone wants a check. For the mortgage they cannot pay and the house they knew full well they could never afford.

We’ve gone from a nation doubtful of government benefits to giving all government aid the benefit of the doubt. But of this I have no doubt.

It is killing us.

By sucking the very last fiber of decency and self reliance from us. We now expect it. We now demand it.

On a side note, everyone should read Murray N. Rothbard’s essay on how we got to where we are as a welfare nation. It’s long but well worth the time.

Depressing too.
