My parents taught me from a very early age that life was not fair They also taught me that it was my responsibility to better myself through hard work and education and that it was up to ME to do so. I grew up very poor in the 50's and 60's. Never once have I looked to the government to provide for my well being. I have held jobs since the age of 15, and managed to put myself through college and earn four degrees. I also managed to raise all of my children to adulthood, and all have graduated from college without government assistance, and they all are productive members of society. I am involved in the community and church, productively employed in the business world. I don't feel that life has been unfair.
