Letter: Where is the responsibility?
When driving around Hampton, what do you see? I see dilapidated houses with brand new cars parked outside. That’s right, I said brand new 2010 sports cars parked outside houses that look like a good puff of wind could knock them over.
When I see this, it screams to me, welfare recipient. Well, why are welfare recipients driving 2010 cars? Where is the responsibility? That isn’t their money they are getting, so why care? As long as the government hands them a check every month, why should, I am ashamed to say, my fellow Americans care?
They spend money however they want. It doesn’t go to food or gas or rent. No, that money goes to their brand new car sitting in the driveway, supports their drug use, supports their addictions, their wants, not needs. So whose money are they throwing away on useless things? That’s right, yours! America, it is time to wake up.
To those of you out there working hard every day and putting your family first, I say "thank you, you are the backbone of the country." But to those of you out there who are on welfare and have 2010 Camaros or Mustangs in your driveway, I say go get a job and show some accountability! And finally to the government workers who hand out the welfare checks to people pulling up in brand new cars and don’t do a single thing about it, I say you should be fired. You are being paid to do a job, which you are not doing. Essentially you are getting free money too!
So America, what is to be done about this? For we cannot possibly continue to support so much of our population when they do absolutely nothing! I read a story in the Gloucester newspaper that they have started making their schools account for every dollar they spend because the schools were spending money on things like these 2010 Camaros that welfare recipients are buying. Well, what better idea? What if welfare recipients were required to account for what they spend your money on? That would not only help to motivate the lazy people who have found they can rely on the government for everything, but it would also create more jobs for them.
And then, perhaps a drug screen to promote personal responsibility as well as financial responsibility to help them get on the path to becoming a contributing American citizen. Hmmm … I don’t know about you, America, but this sounds like something that could have potential. So, America, I am done with this injustice and you should be too. Now what are you going to do about it? I am with you and there are many who agree with me, but we need to speak up. The government won’t change what they think is right. Speak up, America, we need your help!
