What happens when You Rob Peter to Pay Paul?

One of my favorite political aphorisms is the one about how, if you're robbing Peter to pay Paul, you can always count on having Paul's support. Now, let's put that into the scenario of "Paul" being the corporate donor or golf buddy or ideological crony of the people who set policy and disburse the money. People in "Paul"'s class seem to literally view poor people as another species, and their travails as merely another bidness opportunity.
This is from "The Gospel According to Heywood J." ( originally posted at Hammer of The Blogs Reposted by the man who's too cool for words, Ripley, at Online Blogintegrity. (Now with 30% more Integritude!)
Read the whole post at Online Blogintegrity* or at Heywood J's place.*

*I must mention that the post I've linked to contains some dirty words, but please note that this post is on the Internets and not on commercially-supported broadcast radio, where the producers have a seven second delay to catch bad things, (unless of course those bad things are expected to be said as part of your contract).
