I'm not in the habit of bestowing *Stars*, but in this case, your thread was amazing, and articulate !! Very well written.
We all know who you are talking about, we also know the mindset of this group, or groups, and we all live not too far from these types. The United
States has encouraged these types of lifestyles for decades now, just shuffling the particular entitlement names around, adding, and renaming others.
But the system is still one of an entitlement lifestyle where education in success is of little importance. And of course its a lifestyle where fraud
and illegal activities flourish. This is the throw away generation, the individuals that will have no future. Theres a saying... and it goes.. "if
you carry someone on your shoulders forever, they will never learn to walk for themselves". As heartless as it sounds, our country has got to change
this, and it will mean near starvation for some, but if you wont work, you wont eat. Or have clothes, or cell phones, or SUV's, or liquor and drugs,
or houses. You won't have anything except homelessness. And it will be your responsibility. There are no 'free lunches' We are not
socialists....yet, and people who are willing to work and contribute to society should not be burdened with those only along for the free ride.
Of course there are those who will truly need help, but will use as a hand 'UP' not a handout. But they will show by actions that they have value,
that they are contributing members of society, just temporarily down for the moment. Help will allow them to rise out of their situations. These are
the people who 'Deserve' help, and not those who choose handouts as a lifestyle while they loaf around and 'expect' it, or even 'demand' it. SO
OP, STAR FOR you, excellent post.
