My good friend, Mark, sent this to me the other day. I thought it was good. Good enough to post and good enough to remember.
The food stamp program, a US Government run program, announced it is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, also part of the US Government, asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.
What has happened in the last 50-60 years? It used to be that people wanted to better themselves and were willing to work hard to improve their lot in life. Now it seems that the majority of people want the government to take care of them.
One of the best investments to make today might be to buy into a company that makes hand baskets. This country is going to need a lot of them if things don’t change.
