Its true no matter who said it. Its the way Ive felt for a long time.

People used to have pride in America. My mom told me things they did as kids during the war. The kids would go around and collect rags, tin foil, and any other ting that would help the war effort. People would only go on public assistance as a last resort. Families took care of their elderly. People didn't have near the things we do now and they appreciated it more.

Now everyone thinks they are owed a living by the government if they don't want to earn one themselves. We have it so good and cant even see it.

The words are nice, BUT!
J.L. is an anti war,
anti Bush liberal.
I doubt they are his words.
