The Vanishing Class

     If you are tired of paying higher taxes, and having out of control government spending, then you are now, and will continue to be,  a part of “The Vanishing Class” of hard-working folk who are footing the bill for a give-away government.. Now, I am all in favor of assisting those in need, but I’m dead-set against the perpetuation of the “Welfare” seed.. It is time for more conservative government spending. It is a fact that when people work for what they have, they take better care of it, and vice-versa!  So to Congress we should say; “Create jobs not slobs!”

     Have a thought-filled weekend,


Sorry, I couldn't resist

The Vanishing Class

 Our country is on the brink

of collapse,

because of those who have the power

to tax,

have placed the burden on

working-class backs,

to provide for the lazy

and the lax.

    I don’t want to argue, but as someone who works with the poor and have family who work at the family services and food stamp office, I do not believe America has a welfare problem; America has a rich man stealing problem. Lost future millions in 2008 Bank failing. Peace, Love, and good post.

    • Thank you for your comment, and I won’t argue with your statement that America has a rich man stealing problem. However, I will say that I believe that the government is also stealing from the working-class stiff.. And as irony would have it, they’re all rich too.. I have stated that I believe in helping those in need, but helping others help themselves,(job creations) is a hundred times more beneficial to both the individual and society, than continued hand-outs. I think you might agree with that assessment as well. Have a great weekend and thanks again for your comment(s).
