  • Oppressed minorities arrested for attempting to exercise equal rights

    http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/M...253401781.html

    The couple was charged with milking public assistance programs, mainly in their home state of Minnesota, for more than $165,000 between January 2005 and March 2012 in that state alone.

    The criminal case against Colin Chisholm, 62, and Andrea Chisholm, 53, details a lavish lifestyle. Records show they had $3 million in various bank accounts during that period. They are also accused of receiving welfare benefits from Florida.

    Representatives of the Local 47 S&M Union also burned dollar signs on their lawn while wearing rainbow hoods and chanted "God hates $ bags".
    Who wants to bet that none of the Equal Protection homophiles will stand up for THEIR equal rights and aid in the struggle against classism.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

      Calling people "fraudsters" just because they want to be treated equally is like calling Rosa Parks a fraudster because she sat in a seat she didn't have permission to sit in.

        I get it now. Thanks.

          Not much interest in defending equal rights for these people it seems. If it was blacks or gays rather than rich people who were banned from collecting welfare there would be no end to the wailing.
