David Sirota calls out GOP carnivores over subsidized burgers

It’s amazing how much conservatives still have to learn about themselves. Do you have a business? You didn’t build that. Government built the roads that allow you to get your product to market and paid to educate the workers you hired. And if you’re a Republican who enjoys eating meat, don’t call yourself a free-market capitalist. Some vegan liberal made that Dollar Menu burger possible with his tax dollars.

Finally, Salon contributor and vegetarian David Sirota has blown the lid off of carnivore privilege, echoing Al Gore’s wish that gas prices would skyrocket to discourage the use of oil.

Among best ways to reduce meat consumption is to end ag subsidies so that the cost of meat is a true free market price – think: $9 burgers

Sirota’s tweet does have meat-eating Republicans considering their options.

Hang on a minute … was it a lack of taxpayer subsidies that had Sandra Fluke paying $3,000 for birth control? Is that what the contraception mandate of Obamacare was all about?

.@davidsirota In fairness, a lot of Dems like their meat subsidized as well, along with their birth control.

This is just dumb. MT @davidsirota: GOP meat eaters aren’t free market – they want everyone to subsidize their eating via taxes…subsidies.

— Armed Infidel (@mzbilly) May 7, 2013

@mzbilly how substantive a response! When u r too stupid to come up with facts I guess that’s how one responds…

— David Sirota (@davidsirota) May 7, 2013

@davidsirota You know as well as I do that no one in the GOP agrees with higher taxes and more subsidies.

— Armed Infidel (@mzbilly) May 7, 2013

@mzbilly right…except for all the GOP congress people who vote for ag subsidies over and over and over again… #idiot

Nice. Is this a better way to respond to differences of opinion?

Damn @davidsirota, all I said was “lol” twitter.com/JimmyPrinceton…
