query

Why is it that so many of the people who get incredibly outraged when poor people gain money other than through their own efforts (welfare, income shifts due to tax benefits, etc.) don’t bat an eye when those same poor people lose money (lose jobs, lose their homes, etc.) other than through their own efforts?

They’re socialists of risk and capitalists of gain.

(I tend to get windy – a deafening chorus: “duh!” – so I’m seeing what I can do with brevity.)
