Think About It Thursday July 12, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — carlawordsmithblog @ 2:58 pm

Let me first start by saying I am not a millionaire.  I am not even close.  I grew up very middle class in a simple but safe home.  Today I enjoy a good life thanks to hard work and a dedication to living within our means.  Still, it pains me that America used to be a proud nation whose people wanted to succeed and become rich.  More and more we are today a country that wants government handouts for everything.  Being wealthy is actually often considered a negative and failure is accepted and justified.  How did we get here?   What are your thoughts?

    We got here when people stopped spanking their children. We now fund the lazy. Failure is rewarded. We are a nation who says “everyone will succeed” and reward everyone with a trophy for participating. Lone star card? I’m confused.
