THOUGHT OF THE DAY FOR THURSDAY

Don't go around saying the world owes you
a living. The world owes you nothing. It
was here first.
~Mark Twain~

This is so true, and yet..., this country has set up an system of "enabling"(The Welfare system)that has given a lot of people the expectation that the government(if not the world) DOES owe them a living. It's a bit sad really.
I don't see how we can change this without a lot of people and children loosing their generational support system and suffering greatly.

Thank you Carol for your kind comment. Connie, I wish the welfare system could be changed so that the truly needy are helped and the dead beats are taken off the rolls and made to work for a living.
