Well can you tell Maxine and I are a little unsympathetic? This blog is for those who 'want it' without the 'work for it.' Our society is trying to be pushed into that kind of handout mentality. Sure Canada has healthcare for all but does anyone ever mention the long wait for all for procedures? Not hardly. Does your age matter whether you're considered fixable or put out to pasture in socialized medicine? Absolutely. 'Freeloader' used to be a negative term, has it changed in your mind? I fear Obama will get a second term because of this moocher way of thinking.
We begin teaching the 'work ethic' with chores for children. The 'entitlement' attitude will set in if they aren't required to pull their weight in some form. You can see the change in television. 'Little House on the Prarie' shows often made a reference to chores being done, before play I might add. I can't even tell you a show on air now that promotes chores for kids.
When I turned eighteen, I qualified, due to my disability, to receive a Social Security check. I never once thought 'hey I'm going to live off that and others.' I wanted more not only for myself but of myself as well.
Be a working example to those around you and hopefully they will see the benefit of it. 'Nothing is free in this world' is a lesson to be taught.
The craving of sluggards will be the death of them, because their hands refuse to work.
Sluggards bury their hands in the dish and will not even bring them back to their mouths!
Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!
