Freedom is free

The latest conservative hero has pontificated on racial issues, causing his former supporters to back away fast. But with all the attention on his use of the term "negro" and his delightful theory that black people probably were better off as slaves, it's worth noting that Cliven Bundy's criticism of black people is premised on the idea that they are "basically on government subsidy."

Apparently, Bundy thinks that getting stuff for free from the government is evil... unless that something is 20 years of free grazing on government-owned land. That kind of taking stuff for free from the government is called "freedom."
