Quote of the Indeterminate Time Interval – Jim Treacher

by wfgodbold

It’s right there in the headline for his post on the London riots:

Give a man a fish, and he’ll riot for free fish

He also snarks in between blockquotes, saying:

New events have just been announced for the 2012 London Olympics: the Molotov throw, synchronized looting, and the 400-metre dash for your life.

Treacher goes on to raise some good points; namely, that the various tea party protestors demonstrating for smaller government and spending cuts have been decried as terrorists, while in the UK, the blame for these riots is being laid at the foot of austerity measures.

It’s been said that the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money; I doubt anyone expected us to run out quite this soon.
