“Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; give a man a welfare check and he’ll vote for a Democrat”

“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime” is a popular proverb that means that it’s better to have a person be able to support himself or herself than to give temporary stop-gap aid. In the 2012 U.S. presidential election, the incumbent Democratic administration was criticized for a high national unemployment rate and for increased government assistance in programs such as food stamps and welfare, creating a dependency on government handouts. Republican websites changed the proverb by at least March 2012 to read:

“Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Give a man 92 weeks un-employment, a welfare check, a forty-ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe and some Air Jordans, and he’ll vote Democrat for a lifetime.”

IRMO, SC (WIS) - A public apology never happened on Tuesday night despite neighbors demanding one from Irmo Mayor Hardy King after he caught heat for a Facebook image he says he didn’t post in the first place.

The post was an image that read, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a free cell phone, food stamps, section 8 housing, a six-pack of beer, a crack pipe and some Air Jordan’s and he’ll vote Democrat for the rest of his life.”
