Never having received any free hand outs here-ALWAYS having work (along with my spouse) for ANY and EVERYTHING we've ever had the blessings of being able to EARN, I agree with your statement about that.<quoted text>
There is plenty of evidence that ethics is in short supply in both business and Washington. There isn't ANY reason people should get free handouts just because they don't want to work, that's a no-brainer. It's also a no-brainer that it was top end lack of ethics that caused the economy to tank. At the same time, how is firing people who DO want to work supportive of the notion that corporations are AT ALL interested in building the economy?(It seems more likely that reducing labor costs is going to get that CEO his bonus at the fiscal quarter.) Isn't 47% more than enough? Nevada has 11.8% unemployment - isn't THAT enough?
I'll have to hold on response, till I recooperrate from the earth shaking beneath my feet....
