Thanks to the crudetasteless, yet instructive efforts of fake conservative Annette Bosworth, we all know that recipients of government assistance are weak, dependent animals.

At peril of further crudity and tasteless, I present this page from the Environmental Working Group's farm subsidy database:

As I reported last summer, Annette Bosworth's father Richard is a regular recipient of government assistance. Annette's mother Rose also took a small dip from the federal honey pot. And somehow Annette herself, who revels in telling folks that the main reason she went to med school was that she's too good for farm chores, has taken $4,994.97 in farm subsidies (for what? carrying melons out of the barn?).

Bosworth has said publicly that she would end farm subsidies. But is it too late to save her and her family from the crushing grip of dependency? Even if we end farm subsidies, will Annette be able to break free from her constant appeals to the charity of others and make a living through honest work? Or have farm subsidies forever made her and her family poor, dumb animals?
