Legitimately there are some people who need assistance, so be it. However, there are far more who are on the dole, and illegitimately. In a lifetime I have run into a few, who could work, but just won't.furthermore they have the "why should I" attitude. Well, guess they don't get the concept of self respect, sense of accomplishment. I had a constable serving eviction paper on a tenant and the constable told me the situation is GENERATIONAL, as he knows the grandmother, mother , and now the latest generation, my tenant.

Remember Julia, the mythical moocher created by the Obama campaign to show the joys of government dependency? As illustrated by this Ramirez cartoon, Julia symbolizes the entitlement mentality.

Unfortunately, there are many real-life Julias.

I wrote a couple of years ago about Olga, a Greek woman who petulantly believed that government was responsible for her empty life.

But we don’t know any details about Olga other than her desire to mooch, so the best...
