England Has Red States, Too


The number of people who receive more in benefits and public services than they pay in tax is at record levels, official figures show.

More than half of households now take more from the public purse than they contribute, thanks to a generation of surging Government expenditure. 

Which raises (not begs) the question, are these people who are getting more than they are giving going around in 18th century garb pissing and moaning about the government? Probably not. They have more experience than we do with Socialism or Communism or Muslimism or whateverism Obama is now.

Hat tip to you, Sweetie Pie.

And Now For Something Completely Different: Why don't we get pols like this in New York?

KFOR in Oklahoma reports that Timothy Ray Murray believes Rep. Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), his opponent in the congressional Republican primary, was executed three years ago and is being represented by a look-alike. Because he believes Lucas is really dead, Murray said he will challenge the results of Tuesday's Republican primary, in which Murray received 5.2 percent of the vote. Lucas won the primary with 82.8 percent of the vote.

I guess if your primary opponent gets 83% of the vote you have to take desperate measures. I wish Murray all the luck in this.

Probably the remaining handful of working, productive taxpayers in the UK are slightly pissed off. Greedy pigs.
