Marion Robert Morrison

Does that name sound familiar? How about Marion Mitchell Morrison? Still the same person.

Here is a the question he was presented and his reply. Playboy Magazine 1971:

Responding to questions about whether entitlement programs including Medicare and Social Security were good for the country:

“I know all about that. In the late Twenties, when I was a sophomore at USC, I was a socialist myself—but not when I left. The average college kid idealistically wishes everybody could have ice cream and cake for every meal. But as he gets older and gives more thought to his and his fellow man’s responsibilities, he finds that it can’t work out that way—that some people just won’t carry their load … I believe in welfare—a welfare work program. I don’t think a fella should be able to sit on his backside and receive welfare. I’d like to know why well-educated idiots keep apologizing for lazy and complaining people who think the world owes them a living. I’d like to know why they make excuses for cowards who spit in the faces of the police and then run behind the judicial sob sisters. I can’t understand these people who carry placards to save the life of some criminal, yet have no thought for the innocent victim.” 

I ran across this quote today and it really surprised me. I can remember as a kid I thought pretty much the same thing. What is amazing is this was said 41 years ago. And in light of the great Obamacare debate, the high usage of EBT cards I really find this poetic.


John Wayne said this quote. Surprising no? To bad the zombies and politicians in this country wont wake up and read what the Duke said.
