We have many people drawing money for not working, why? These are able
bodied men and women who have no disabilities whatsoever. Most of these
people are individuals who have lost their jobs or means of employment
because of lay offs, or their places of employment have gone out of
This amounts to a large loss of manpower that could be put to better use
improving our country and possibly increasing their job skills so they
would be better qualified to gain employment in another field of work .
Since they are collecting unemployment from the taxpayers and getting
paid any way, why not put them to work doing public service jobs. There
is plenty of trash to pick up along our highways and byways. Our schools
and hospitals can always use extra help, and many other organizations
always need help as well.
It would be astonishing as to how many of these so called unemployable
could find a job in a very short time if they were required to work in
so called demeaning jobs. If they were required to work for their
unemployment checks and submit to drug tests many of them would find a
better job within a week.
It is way past time to stop supporting people who can and should work, too
many people in not only this country, but around the world as well have
come to expect handouts, they believe something is actually owed them,
the only thing the world owes them is a chance to make a living, it
doesn’t owe them a living.
Of course governments, and our present administration as well, want people
to be dependent on them , it is to their advantage to have people think

destiny, now the liberal and socialists politicians promise them a free
ride and all the perks that go with it.
They come here expecting handouts and the more we give them, the more bitter
and unappreciative they become. There is something to the fact that the
more one is given, the more resentful they become, look at some of the
Hollywood stars and public officials. The enjoy a huge amount of success
and fame, they then become resentful and turn against the very system
that made them what they are.
Many also have no spiritual foundation, they have nothing to believe in ,
the wealth and fame creates guilt because they have so much more than
others and when they strike out at the establishment, they are actually
striking out at themselves. They feel like they don’t deserve it and
unconsciously compensate by blaming someone else for their
The best way to give people a sense of worth is to have them work for what
they have , when people are given what they want and need with no effort
on their part, what they are given has no value to them because there
was no effort to earn it. The worst thing society can do is to give an
individual or group of individuals a free ride, it never works to any
