Take two 60 something year old women I know.
One is overweight,eats too much,drinks too much,smokes too much.
Always has headaches,backaches,migraines,allergies,flu's,
Won't even cook for herself,take any exercise,has to have things handed to her.
The other is recovering from a genuine illness and a hip replacement op,She,with a real reason for immobility,chose instead to take herself to the
local gym,EVERY DAY,walking on the treadmill and putting much younger people to shame.
Which one is the survivor?
And which one is the leech on her family's resources and efforts?
Both are unlikely to survive in a dire sit-x,but I certainly know which one I'd be most willing to go the extra mile to help.
It's people like that who we need to get this God-forsaken country out of the self inflicted,self indulgent quagmire we are in.
