I started working at age 14 with a paper route. With rare exception, I have worked for anything I have ever since. Much of the money I pay in taxes each year goes to helping the unfortunate. I don't have a problem with that, in spite of what liberals accuse me of. However, by ever increasing amounts, more and more of the taxes I contribute go to charlatans that take advantage, many of whom are elected officials. Overpaid Hollywood stars and athletes began to think they were smart because they have large checking accounts. They're just over paid. They have decided their wisdom is merchantable (higher admittance fees). That's very arrogant and elitist, however the real sadness is the number of people who believe them.
Our leadership, whether elected or self-anointed, did not get there by armed overthrow of the government. They got there because we elected, or let them. It is not their fault. It is ours. Remember the famous Pogo comic strip line? "We have met the enemy, and the enemy is us."
Folks, ya gotta think. We have elections coming up.
