From part of this Saturday's so-called "business block" on Faux "news," Cashin' In host Eric Bolling wrapped up the show with a bit of "commentary" where he continued the tradition over at that network of attacking food stamp recipients, the disabled, anyone who doesn't earn enough money to pay federal income taxes, and probably about every retiree in the United States to boot.

There's nothing like celebrating a national holiday by calling at least half of the country or more lazy moochers and then blaming President Obama, rather than the prior administration whose mess he had to clean up and the do-nothing Congress he's had to put up with for the economy not improving fast enough to suit them.

BOLLING: For the 230th time America is celebrating the 4th of July, the day the thirteen colonies declared our independence from Great Britain. So I wanted to take a minute to reflect on our independence. Folks, America has changed.

We were once a strong and proud people built on a rock solid work ethic. Independence recently however, we've evolved for the worse. A massive 55 percent of all Americans have relied on the government for an entitlement. 46 million Americans are receiving food stamps. That's up over 14 million since Barack Obama took office. 9 million workers are now on disability, up 20 percent under Obama.

All the while nearly half of all American households pay no federal income tax, meaning more and more takers are in the cart and fewer and fewer makers are pulling the darned thing. Barack Obama and his minions keep telling us how great the recovery is. Really?

Gasoline's up 100 percent under Obama and many food prices are at a record high. Sadly, Americans median household income has plummeted. Welcome to Obama-nomics on this holiday weekend.

May I suggest we start observing a new day, January 20th, the day President Obama was sworn into office. May I also suggest a name for that day. How about “Dependents' Day?”

I wonder how many of the geriatric crowd that watches this nonsense and actually take it seriously know he's talking about them?
