For the first time in my adult life, I am disappointed in my country.
Just what low levels have we stooped to in America when a hard-earned paycheck is treated like a crime punishable by over taxation, success is a status worthy of suspicion, and the wealthy are considered guilty of greed without a chance to prove their innocence?
At the same time, downright laziness is rewarded with welfare entitlements as if it were a paycheck to be proud of.
We shouldn't continue to punish hard work and success in America because what goes around comes around. The lazy and envious want to bite the hand that feeds them but in their blissful ignorance will not realize they might soon be biting their own hand off.
