Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly caught up Monday with Surfer-Rocker dude, the lobster-buying food stamp recipient whom Fox profiled a few months ago. He’s still on food stamps and still buying lobsters – but only when lobster’s on sale, he assures us.
The cost of food stamps to you has risen from $17 billion in 2000 to $80 billion last year. The price tag has more than doubled under President Obama, according to Fox News.
Surfer-Rocker dude is using food stamps to help him get by while he implements his business plan, which involves surfing, rocking out, and girls.
Sure, he’s a self-indulgent leach. But he makes a pretty damn good point:
Do I have to apologize for the way the system’s set up?
He’s right. Things are working just as Obama’s social engineers have planned.
Because this rock and roll dream is actually one of those things the White House likes to refer to as “investments.” I thought the term was just a euphemism for spending, but – who knew? – the White House was being, like, totally sincere.
That is, Surfer-Rocker dude has assured us he’s going to make “millions and millions of dollars, man.” And can you imagine the taxes that we’ll collect on that? Talk about recouping an investment!
Anyway, your contribution to this enterprise is almost at an end, Surfer-Rocker Inc. assures us. “If everything’s planned out right, I should be off food stamps in a month,” he said.
