I have recently had the misfortune of standing in line at a grocery store. I don’t shop well, but I was just trying to help my wife while I was on my way home from work.
Twice, I was standing right behind customers that were on the government dole, using their EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer/Food stamps) cards. Amazingly, the woman stood alone while the husband stood afar off watching his wife make her purchasesÂ using money they hadn’t earned. What ever happened to human pride (in the good sense)?
This is where the entitlement mentality comes from. The government has made it too easy toÂ take from those whoÂ work and give to those who want.Â Â And it’s destroying our nation just as it did Rome several centuries ago. My father would have kicked me right in the ass–tronaught if I would have ever reached my hand out to accept money I hadn’tÂ worked for myself.
Rise up poor people. Rekindle the fires of ambition and prideÂ that will make you successful for the future. Refuse to allow yourselves to become enslaved to the government for a piece of bread or whatever you thinkÂ you need in substitute for your own dignity.
