I call it just another collection of anecdotes that prove people take care of each other and everything else, without needing to be forced to do so...

Not so fast.

1.  Underpants man turned all our good Christian men into heathens.

2.  No way to treat the elderly.

3.  Lack of safety regulations.  Probably a thousand other sheep died that day.

4.  This means someone will take the book and sell them for 1 dollar right across the street.

5.  Disenfranchisement at the voting booth.

6.  People are so competitive they are afraid to bow out gracefully even after an injury.

7.  Business ignoring it's customers requests.   market failure.

8.  Condescension towards wage slaves.

9.  Oh, so we only get to eat once a week?!?!

10.  10 seconds later, he promptly skins them alive to make jackets for huge $$$.

11.  They think you stink just because you're a worker.  Classism.

12.  2 dollar sandals made in sweat shop by same girl a few days earlier.

13.  Keep it alive just to sell it to Indian guy in picture 10.

14.  Without taxes for fire fighters, that cat would be dead.

15.  Met on myspace.  Our children are under attack.

16.  Promoting Islamofascism.  Laced with anthrax.

17.  Lack of safety regulations and precautions.

18.  Should've gotten an abortion, or signed up for welfare.

19.  See, everyone loves the military.  It's their birthday!

20.  More examples of not enough safety regulations.  The result of which is see-through whitey tighties.

21.  Cat obesity seems to be on the rise, a child -- who will look like mini michelin man in 2 years -- looks on.

The other day I saw this on 9gag, and that was precisely what I thought. I was like: "private initiative, oh, private initiative, hmm, private initiative".

If you want good answers, ask the right questions.

Ha! Epic.

 

Also, note how they're catering to the Reddit demographic - I count a whole 4 pictures involving cats!
