Once upon a time in the United States of America about twenty five percent of those who lived here had fathers and mothers who did not have jobs. NO, this does not refer to Hispanics or black people, but to good old fashioned white folks. During the Depression of the 1930s, one out of four people lacked work and how to depend upon the evil government to provide work and food. I am discussing the grandparents of this win
Congress today who nonstop decry the laziness of those who are without good jobs and seek government -handouts! The concept of government assistance was born in the Depression and those who were given this money were, for the most part, people whose skin was WHITE! These were people of European heritage who had been overwhelmed by the failure of BIG BUSINESS whose follies had created an economic collapse that was the worse in our history. In other words, the grandparents of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul and Sarah Palin were the people who demanded government -handouts. Actually, blacks and Hispanics received a lower amount of aid than those shiftless whites crying and complaining that GOVERNMENT should aid the poor.
Poverty sucks. It takes away the self concept of a man or woman who cannot feed their own children. It creates within their hearts and souls a sense of failure at being a man or woman. One does not LEARN from being poor other than it sucks! What is currently happening to millions of Americans happened to their grandparents decades ago. The only lesson one can derive from poverty is that it must end. Every member of Congress must be required to provide evidence that their grand parents never received government handouts if they are allowed to vote against aid to the poor!
