What's Wrong With This Picture?

| 2 Comments
I've been arguing forever that the same central idea underlies both criminality and the welfare state:  That the individual is not responsible for his life and decisions, the government is.

I've gone on and on about the subject.  I must now confess that one protest sign summarizes it more succinctly than I ever did.
OK, how can someone make a sign like this and NOT get arrested on the spot ?

UPDATE:  A well-regarded journalist tells me the picture might be a hoax, citing this source.  I got the picture from a Facebook friend I know to be reliable, but being reliable doesn't mean you can't ever get taken in.  The picture looks genuine to me, but I'm no expert on the subject.  The gimme-or-else sentiment on the sign is all too authentic, however.

Wow. That's all I can say.

Whatever happened to "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

Gads, federalist, you're so...old fashioned.
