My entire life I have been around hard working people who put in their own blood sweat and tears to better their circumstances. now I see a lot of
people who's life skills include 'making it to level 20 of Halo, man'. I see people who create families but realize how much work it is and walk
away. I meet people who would sit at their computer and scoff at someone who does something for themselves.
Nobody is willing to get their hands dirty anymore. I happened to know personally an owner of multiple hotels in a resort town, I was one of his
management staff. Guess who was out there at 10:00 at night chucking laundry with me in the rain. It was the OWNER in all his flanneled glory, not the
little spoiled brats who only came into the state to party for the summer. He created those jobs, without his evil company, I would have been homeless
for 6 years.
But none of that matters right, as long as someone is still working to pay for everyone else's freebies we will all be alright.
I was an evil business owner myself. I got off my butt and decided I didn't want to work for someone else anymore. Oh, but does that count since I
performed a service that nobody else wanted to do?
I actually had a potential client utterly insult me, because she was too good to scrub her own toilet, but she was glad that someone like me would be
willing to. My husband works his butt off, and guess what, just got his 6th raise since the economy took a crap. Do you know why? Because he is a good
We can go back to the days before the evil corporations took over, fine! I would love it and my family would thrive. How many people could live
without their convenience foods and restaurants? Evil companies.
How many people could live without transportation? More evil companies. Oh and that computer of yours was built by someone who works for....wait for
it, an Evil company.
My point is that I am tired of everyone begging for handouts. I don't think that my family should have to pay, yet again for someone else. If we
chose to do so, great that is our choice. I don't think that the government should be able to force me to do otherwise. I really don't appreciate
people who don't even live here make the blanket statement that we should have to pay more because Obamacare is going to save the healthcare
The people already in the system get BETTER care now than their PAYING counterparts and it is BS. I know from very recent experience.
PS When was the last time you took food to your local foodbank? or given school supplies or warm clothes to your local school, or gone grocery
shopping to the tune of $300 for a needy family.
No Thanks. I give when and where I see the need, not when someone calls my house asking for a handout shortly after bragging about a new gaming
system. Or when someone on an online forum sits there and tells me I should.
