Did you just diss me for praising the good things available in my country? Really?
Are you accusing me of taking handouts? I've been working now for 48 years. I pay $678 a month for health insurance. The school my kid attends is funded by the $thousands a year I pay in property taxes.
Of course I'm concerned about my kid and my neighborhood. Aren't you? That doesn't make me a mooch or a slacker. It makes me a concerned parent and citizen.
The point I was making is that people can throw up their hands in despair or they can look at the huge advantages we have in this country and be properly grateful for them.
