    See your sig line.
    So you're saying the boy paid the New Yorker for the right to repost that....?

    Even more outrageous, the recipient of the meals spends most weekends in Florida, where the flow of free government food continues without interruption.

    Harland Dorrinson, the executive director of the Center for Benefit Reduction, a think tank that focuses on reducing federal benefits, called the individual’s consumption of free government meals “the worst abuse of the system I’ve ever seen.”

    “I might be accused of being heartless for saying this, but this person should be thrown out on the street,” he said.

    But, according to a source familiar with the senior, those calling for him to work for his meals are, at best, ill-informed. “You can’t expect someone to do a job when he’s completely unqualified,” the source said. "

    I'm sure TJ will be around shortly to tell you what a moron your piece is, regardless of how satirical it is. After all, the president pays for his own meals, so the very first sentence would be inaccurate. Personally, I get that it is a satire piece, but TJ likes things to be accurate, so she'll let you know how stupid it is right off.

    You know I missed the satire thing, but you have to admit I got it right. The guy is a Republican or Boy blunder wouldn't have posted it.

    If I may ...

    Titled at the top of the web page, "Satire from the Borowitz Report - Able-Bodied Senior Who Watches TV All Day Receives Free Government Meals".

    Why do you people persist in attacking the messenger?

    You do understand that, right? That NHB did not write that story; that it came from Andy Borowitz at New Yorker?
    Think of it as a metaphysical slap in the back of the head whenever he says something stupid. This way no one chances a hand injury.
