Using A Single Word To Hide The Truth

Number of the Week: Half of U.S. Lives in Household Getting Benefits

The increase in recent years is likely due in large part to the lingering effects of the recession. As of early 2011, 15% of people lived in a household that received food stamps, 26% had someone enrolled in Medicaid and 2% had a member receiving unemployment benefits. Families doubling up to save money or pool expenses also is likely leading to more multigenerational households. But even without the effects of the recession, there would be a larger reliance on government.

Let me fix this first sentence:

The increase in recent years is likely due in large part to the lingering effects of the recession.

Here we go:

The increase in recent years is likely due in large part to the lingering effects of the government allowing widespread mortgage fraud; the government not overseeing banks; banks accepting fraudulent mortgages and packaging them to sell to suckers; widespread corruption among politicians; politicians not giving a damn when manufacturing is sent out of the country and Americans are dumped on the street like old furniture; schools giving up on students and letting illiterates pass so they can “feel good”; mass media manipulating people into thinking the rich got that way through hard work and honesty; Churches abandoning God for Mammon; and no one having the fucking guts to stop any of it.

There we go.

You’re welcome, Wall Street Journal.
