There are generations of Americans who are making a career out of "scummy pursuits." One of the reasons the residents of New Orleans did not use their God-given two feet to move to higher ground (because Ray Nagy did not provide buses for them as he WOULD have done had there been an election heading their way) was that it was close to September 1 and THEIR GOVERNMENT CHECKS WERE COMING. Treat 'em like children and they act that way. A woman interviewed said she wasn't moving unless the GOVERNMENT came, packed up her stuff and then carried it AND HER to safety. Thank you, Democrats.

Plantation mindset. Sad they didn't think they could do anything for themselves. Their non actions,
that could have cost them their lives, is exactly the mindset Barry Dunham Soetoro is working hard (the only hard work he's ever done in his entire useless life) to keep them enslaved to the government and adding more including a lot of whites.

this is how obama can assure him the next election, by having everyone a gov dependent and choking and strangling the economy so that there will be no jobs, and he will be re elected. there are so many idiots who believe him and who do not know that his enslavement of the country is not america, it is destroying this country of entrepreneurs. this is why the saying capitalism creates more millionaires, socialism creates more poor people. look around you, 50% not paying tax, 50% on food stamps. never happened before, only happened because of obama's policies. the young will suffer for the next 50 years. if they do not wake up there will nothing to save of this u s a.

There isn't a more effective way to take away a person's pride, esteem and industriousness than to give them that which they have not earned.

To create, sustain or promote generational addictions to subsidies is evil in every respect.

Exactly. We raised our 6 kids to work for what they wanted over and above what we could afford to provide. That included bikes and later cars. They all worked while in
H S. and saved to buy their cars etc.

When I was a young dork growing up in West Texas in the 70s and 80s, my folks raised me to believe that making good money via righteous and industrious means was actually a good thing—y’know, something to aspire to. Remember that notion?

My folks would point out people in the neighborhood and community who busted their butts and got rewarded for the goods and/or services they provided and would say, “See Johnny, Dougie? Johnny studied. Johnny worked hard and smart, and now Johnny’s rich, and you’re still a weed-smoking dipthong working at a frickin’ gas station high as a kite...
