What's the point of this completely fictitious exercise? More red scare
that Obama will take over the economy? I think we have enough real
problems to solve without making up more just for giggles.
The letter is correct that left-wing policies have created a large underclass of
people who refuse to provide for themselves, because they have learned that if
they scream loud enough, the government will provide them with their every need
and want. This is the exact opposite of what it means to be a patriotic
American.America did not become the greatest nation on earth by
propping up and supporting laziness and sloth. It became great because it had
hard working, industrious citizens. Indeed, it had citizens who believed in and
practiced self-sufficiency and self-reliance. A country cannot become great when
a large segment of the population contributes nothing to society.It
is not the job of the government to give people money for doing nothing other
than simply existing. Not only does it foster a permanent welfare classs, it is
little more than theft. What is often forgotten is that the government cannot
hand out money to one person unless it has taken that money from someone who
worked hard to earn it.I call on the ignorant masses to wake up and
recognize what is happening. We are rapidly aproaching the point of no return.
Where are these dream jobs that the right seems to think are out there? Where
are these jobs starting at $40K that will support a family? The far
right-wingers keep shouting that people need to provide for themselves or they
aren't "patriotic." How many people out there who
receive assistance are truly just sitting back playing XBox all day? How many
are actually working and trying to provide, but just can't make ends meet?
I think if you do a little research you'll find your answer. 'I'm sure I'll be lambasted for my above comments, but when I
was on active duty, I knew many, many, many soldiers who received food stamps to
help feed their children. Are you going to tell me that they are lazy,
slothful, and "unpatriotic?"
Conservatives, please come back to the real world. Sure, fantasies, persecution
complexes and conspiracy theories are a lot of fun, but there's real,
difficult work to be done around here and we need you.
Come on DN, don't you have a cartoon section this could be printed in? Of
course JCS pops up..the letter is exactly right.
JCS asks: "I call on the ignorant masses to wake up and recognize what is
happening."He's right and I'm wondering when he and
his fellow rightwingnuts will do exactly that.
I am constantly amazed by the ability of some to predict the future. If we could get these people to enter the world of science, we could eliminate
all the time wasted in proving theories by experimentation.
Hey, a 'law of unintended consequences joke'! Well done. The punch
line wasn't quite funny enough, though.
Don't let Obama see this letter. He will find good ideas.
I have no clue what the guy was talking about...
