Why does anyone feel entitled to anything?
I get so tired of it. If you didn’t work your butt off and earn it you don’t deserve it. Does that mean it’s not okay to have nice things if you didn’t earn them? No, but it does mean don’t expect it. Don’t expect things to be handed to you on a silver platter.
Don’t expect the gov’t to pay for you to raise a child you chose to have. Don’t expect me to pay for it out of my tax dollars. That goes for health care too, and food stamps, all of it. Does that mean I think programs that provide gov’t assistance are bad? No, by no means. But I believe those programs were created to help people who have gotten themselves into a rough spot and are working to better it, not for those who feel they deserve it just because. You know what I’m talking about, we’ve all seen the lady in the checkout at the grocery store with more food than I can afford in a month, nails and hair done, designer bags and clothes, and they pay with food stamps…If you only knew how much it makes my blood boil.
I strongly support helping those who are willing to give their life for this country, the elderly, and the disabled. I do not support the idea of supporting those to lazy to support themselves. Or those who have made one poor decision after another. At some point we all must stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Sadly with a gov’t that would rather help those who chose not to help themselves, instead of those who cannot help themselves, that day will not come soon enough.
