I am spitting mad that there might be another mail-out of checks!! Disguised as economic stimulus. Our family received the last one and this is not something we needed or wanted. It did not work, so what have the politicians decided????? It did not work so we should do it again. What a crock of bull. I am soooooooooo sick of this. Hand-outs don't help anyone EVER. If people are struggling with money they should work more and spend less. That is what we do. We certainly don't sit back and wait for the calvary. It isn't coming. The calvary is within us. We are blessed to live in the most prosperous country in the world. A country where the opportunities for success are EVERYWHERE. All that is required is the ability and desire to work.
***edited to add...I was not criticizing current government programs, I think they have been designed to be more of a hand-up than a hand out. Of course there are people who abuse the system, but for the most part I think our social programs work with the recipients to encourage them to do personal development and better themselves. I am not opposed to WIC, food stamps, or help with housing. Unfortunately, I think they are a necessary thing. HOWEVER, economic stimulus checks ARE NOT. It is just free money doled out by the government AND THE GOVERNMENT IS SO FAR PAST BROKE IT IS RIDICULOUS!!!
Can you imagine if I told you I was a trillion dollars in debt and then offered to give you some money to "help" you even though you were doing okay. Would you not think that was the stupidest decision evah?????
By the way Anonymous, who are you?
