How can the nation hope for any kind of future when 25% of our children are on welfare?


But, but, but,,, we are supposed to be in a recovery?

Not blaming the parents, but what kind of work ethic are the children learning by being on welfare?

My wife and I know a family that has been on some kind of welfare for 3 generations.

and when those kids keep playing *hooky* day after week.... suspend ALL welfare checks for the entire family! That troubled child will get sent to a *troubled youth* camp, where he/she belongs. The rest of the family (law abiding, school attending) family can go back to receiving the benefits that hopefully will help them.

OH... and kids on Welfare should be required to maintain some sort of positive grade average. Whatcha think?

We have a future. But the picture that future presents is very grim.

Our grandparents' generation regarded it as a mark of shame and evidence of complete failure in life to have to "go on the government dole". They valued self reliance, independence, thrift, and hard work. This was the example they set for their children.

We have now done a complete turnaround from that mindset to get to the point where the first response to a lack of steady income is to ask: "What government programs can I sign up for to get cash and other free stuff?" This is the example we are setting for our kids.

It is basic human nature to take the path of least resistance. We have forgotten how to stand on our own two feet, work hard, and save. We sure know how to spend, though. We could qualify for a gold medal in shopping activity. (Just watch any video of Black Friday sales for proof of this.)

Our values are so warped that most of us think "hardship" is not getting to watch sports games or other favorite shows on TV.

Our children look at all of this, every day, and think: "It must be right because Mom and Dad are doing it."

Yeah. We have a future approaching. It will be the equivalent of a giant house of cards collapsing. And, most of the population will ask in stunned disbelief........."how did THIS happen??"
