Oooh hey, look at this! I've been snarked on a blog called Green Eagle under the heading "Wingnut Wrapup" (obviously WorldNetDaily is one of this blogger's favorite places for chuckles).
From my column Ants, Grasshoppers, and God: "I've been thinking a great deal about poverty lately, specifically its causes as well as what our obligations are (both personal and societal) to alleviate it." - this blogger writes,
Obligations? According to Patrice, that would be nothing at all. Screw the bastards. Patrice justifies this with a boring diatribe about the grasshopper and the ants, which is apparently from somewhere in the bible. Next time you open the Good Book, try reading the sermon on the mount, Patrice. Never heard of that part, huh?
Typical knee-jerk liberal reaction: they simply cannot fathom a difference between the poor (who this blogger believes is mentioned in the Sermon on the Mount; the actual reference is poor in spirit; but I don't expect this blogger reads the Bible very often) and Grasshoppers who, let's face it, are only poor because they won't work. Not can't; WON'T.
My husband's comment: "This blogger's solution is to make pets of the Grasshoppers."
The criticism is illogical, nor is a solution offered.
