Blacks and Mexicans have dragged America down in various ways. They helped lower the bar so low that we don't even remember it wasn't always like this. work ethic, behaviour, ambition, victimization mindset etc........ not good.

The truth does hurt. We have created generations of lazy entitled people.
They are called liberals.

When time comes for Romney and Obama to talk without surrogates, I would like to hear the discussion about the influences of Paine & Mao.
And, if they ask why, neither should be elected.

They don't mind entitlements for "Too Big To Fail", or the wealthy 2%. They believe in white collar welfare.

If people are given "things" not earned in any way, first off, they don't value them and secondly, the grow to expect them. We all know how hard it is to decrease any so called "entitlement". The screams from the left at even not INCREASING one is called a cut. Right now at this very moment, the takers are equal to the payers. When more people are dependent on government for sustenance (and for some it's a very nice living for sure) than those supplying the means, we are headed for deep trouble. The American Dream is still with us, SOME OF US have just lost the will to do the hard work necessary. Instant gratification is NOT part of the dream.

That's a lie, creating jobs does not erase the fact that a person is owed a pension by contract.

An "entitlement" is a pension, or paid vacation, something that is owed to a person is an "entitlement". I'm entitled to my 4 weeks paid vacation because that's the agreement between our labor group and management, that is owed to me.

You idiots don't even know the definition of the word, you just like arguing about your silly feelings about things.

So true, you take the pain and value out of having to find a way to make it and you loose something in the character of the person. It has given us a nation of I want I want I want, instead of a nation of I did, I did, I did. I am convinced that if we were back to life it not fair, it is hard, very hard and it is harder if your stupid then as a whole we would be better off and not be suffering what we are suffering now.

And entitlements will kill more then the american dream on their current course, we are going down the path of Greece it will just take us longer to get there.
