Out of touch – aren’t we. . .
Like I said yesterday, out of touch with that middle class that you are out to “help”
Thanks Michelle for really showing us you are willing to give up your pie for the rest of us. And frankly I would prefer you to share your pie cause you have a whole lot to share, more than most of us. In fact you are part of that top percent who should be giving a whole lot more than you do. AND mandating giving anymore to help people who are not already trying to help themselves just grates on my last nerve.
Yes, I know there are people who legitimately need assistance. I am NOT referring to them. But we all know there are people who abuse the system. These are the people that make me mad. And we let them. And now we are going to have to take the money we work very hard to have to pay our own bills and give it to people who feel like we owe it to them.
No one owes you anything. Having your life paid for by the government is not a right. Personally I think there should be a massive overhaul of the welfare system to encourage capable individuals to have to go back to work. That would help the employment rate.
When did having your bills paid, health care, free food, college education, etc. become a right. Most of those things are privileges. Our ancestors would never have dreamed that today we would just expect to have these things without having to work for them. Our grandparents generations were some of the hardest working, most sacrificing people there have been. We have lost some of that and now our society feels that we should have more. More and more and more. We live in excess.
And the American Dream, guess what – we are all living it.
Being a millionaire is not the American Dream, it might be a dream but not the intent of what we call the “American Dream”. Our country is wealthy. The whole thing. Look at countries overseas and you will see that they do not differentiate between Bill Gates and an office worker. They see an American and think of a wealthy country. So while you might not see yourself as rich, know that you are. Get a grip on reality and understand that you are living a dream. And even if it is not your dream there are lots of people who would give anything to be in your shoes.
So please leave my “pie” alone. If you really want to see the economy grow encourage people to work hard. Taking their money for doing that is not going to make it better.
