“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Thoughtless Americans inadvertently make me LOL

A friend of mine over on Facebook posted this today. Now not much amuses me, but this cracked me up. I LOL'd.

You know some of these kids look at the stupid crap we thoughtless Americans send them to make ourselves feel charitable and guilt-free as we sleep in safety and air conditioning and wake to $7 cups of coffee at Starbucks, and they think, what a bunch of a-holes!

Still, this is funny as heck.

I look at that picture and feel profound sadness.

I know, and I'm certainly not laughing at the kid, but at the thoughtlessness of smug Americans who think they're saving the world by sending their dirty laundry to poor people.

You know it's quite possible some mother put a bunch of kid's clothing that hers had grown out of in a box in a parking lot, or dropped them at Goodwill, having no idea what would be done with them or asking for a tax deduction. I've done it.

I know it wasn't intentional, but the contrast between the probably hungry kid and his wearing a cookie monster shirt he got from America, the fattest nation on Earth, is pretty funny.
