You just have to see this...
The following picture was shared on a libertarian friend's facebook wall.
Setting aside the veracity of the above receipt .. the comment section got a little rowdy... as someone referred to the person who presumably made this transaction... as "human garbage". Enter our heroine... Whom I shall call... "kristin"... well...because her first name is kristin.
Here are a few of Kristin's comments:
Kristin: God damn you are the most Republican person I know. I understand not giving people who don't deserve it food stamps. But why in the fuck would you want to see good people starve? Of course its the government's job, aka our jobs, to help keep others from starving. Unless you want to live in a heartless, disgusting country. How can you demand a better standard of living within our country without wanting to help others or pay taxes? Sigh.
I particularly enjoyed this comment... as she complained that an officer in the Libertarian Party of Alabama was somehow Republican.
Kristin: So you know everyone that is on food stamps? YOU ignorant fucks are the trash. Have a heart and understand that not everyone was born into the environment or family you were.
Kristin: There are plenty of people who have multiple jobs and still can't support themselves. Especially places like CA where I live. It's expensive.
We are all shocked to learn Kristin lives in California. She continues...
Kristin: I'm done with the debate. I'm going to go about my educated lifestyle. Have fun living youre terribly close-minded life. Fuckin hicks man.
The poor dear is getting so angry her grammar is suffering... this isn't good.
At this point... and Evil Libertarian jumps in...
Evil Libertarian: Kristin, sweetie, consumption is the driving force of capitalism, which, capitalism not corporatism, is the greatest economic system this planet has ever seen...over consumption is a right of the people, to buy and spend as much as they choose...it only strengthens our economy.
Kristin: First of all, do NOT be condescending with me. Second of all, consumption is of course great for our economy, but its not great when people eat too much and get fat and die. It also doesn't mean that I don't value a meaningful life more than the economy. People worry too much about how big their flat screen TV is or how super sized they can get their Big Mac when there are children dying of AIDs and genocide in the world. People need to get their shit together. And that's coming from a Global Business and Econ major.
Now this is important. Kristin is a Global Business and Econ major. I want to make sure everyone understands that.
After someone else brings up Austrian Economics... Kristin blows them away.. with this amazingly awesome retort...
Kristin: And what does Austrian economics have to do with anything? But yes, in fact I do know some considering I was just there last year. I know a lot of the basics of the economies within the EU.
And there you have it.
Kristin the Global Business and Econ major knows all about Austrian Economics... because she was in Europe just last year.
See friends? Put down that Milton Friedman. You don't need to read all that. You just need to do some sight seeing in Chicago.
Obviously Kristin should seriously reconsider her choice of educational institutions... unless of course she has already graduated. If that is the case... she should sue them for fraud.
