The Nobility of Work

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better look at the American Indian.”  Henry Ford

Reminds me of the story of the gullible gulls (true) who, for years, flew every morning and evening into the land fill to eat and when the land fill closed they flew around in circles looking for their free handout until most of them starved.  Government giveaways create a population of those so dependent on the daily handout that all incentive to better themselves has vanished. Nothing destroys the human spirit more than the philosophy that they can be taken care of by someone besides themselves.  I don’t know if it’s too late, but if this gimme, gimme, gimme attitude is not turned around soon, the producers will stop producing and the consumers will find themselves flying around in circles looking for something to eat.

A soul who willingly and knowingly, gets his sustenance from the sweat of his fellow man, when he could take care of himself, has neither self-respect nor character

God help us as long as Reed, Pelosi and Obama are in the government.
