Dear Kisha,
Thank you for your insightful comment and call-to-action. You are so right! Sadly, the funds that so many need are being sucked up by some who feel entitled to TAKE without conscience. I, too, have numbers of friends, who remain on "Social Security" year-after-year, while they remodel, ski and seem to do everything, but WORK.

Our system seems very broken and the observation you've made is not a POPULAR one to share. At least, this has been my experience. It seems we are like a classic family ---- we are in denial and don't want to see our dishonest family members exposed.

Think lying and stealing just a little or a lot seems to have become acceptable, as long as we don't really say anything outloud about it.

In the end, the best we can do is set an example in our own behavior and pray that we will be blessed to honor others by not stealing and lying to take what doesn't belong to us. THEN, we have to use our voices to be part of change.

Thank you again for writing in. Your comment has me thinking.



Go to youtube & search FatboyDan. He claims a mental disabillity, yet he can do anything anyone else can (and more than some). He drives, hunts (which means he posses weapons) and fishes. He has no problems speaking. He is an OBVIOUS scammer who needs to be sued for fraud! Go see for yourselves, and if someone knows how, report him. It's unfair to those in need for someone too lazy to work to be able to get a free pass.

Dear "Ticked,"
It is disappointing to see examples like this. Unfortunately, I think it is more a symptom of our society that we all own, both those who violate the intentions of such a program; and those of us that sit feeling helpless to figure out how to begin to insist on something different for our country and from ourselves. How did we allow this to happen? I ask myself all the time. What has happened to our collective conscience? To doing what is right?

I'm always moved by Gandhi's warning about the traits most perilous to humanity:

Wealth without Work
Pleasure without Conscience
Science without Humanity
Knowledge without Character
Politics without Principle
Commerce without Morality
Worship without Sacrifice

I do think we have the opportunity to reform ourselves one-by-one to live more consciously about the impacts of our choices on others.

What do you think?
What possibilities do you see?
Where do we start from your point of view?
