Uncle Sam Freeloaders: Be Ashamed!
Pinnacle Digest writes: Frezza is at it again, calling out freeloaders and entitlement fiends from coast to coast in his latest commentary, titled, "On the Dole? Cashing Checks from Uncle Sam? Be Ashamed!"
Frezza begins with facts, but moves onto the mental psyche now present in millions of Americans that simply do not understand why they are not entitled to money for nothing.
The U.S. federal government is now the largest income-redistribution operation in human history. Fact. The latest government dependency index has broken all records, with half of U.S. households on one dole or another. Fact.
Frezza has a remedy for America if it wishes to escape the same fate and problems the EU currently finds itself in.
Simply put, he believes we must bring back shame.
Frezza asks the questions: Exactly when did we banish shame? Who told the government it was OK to run public relations campaigns encouraging people to take handouts? Why have so many of our churches stopped preaching against the vices that lead to dependency, clamoring instead for government alms as if they were a basic human right?
Frezza admits that, Republican candidate Mitt Romney completely fumbled his 47 percent gaffe, but not because he stated a false statistic about who pays income taxes and who doesn't. Frezza explains that Romney was correct when he pointed out that we have reached the tipping point where a majority of citizens have the power to vote themselves benefits at someone else's expense. It is a dangerous, uncertain time to call yourself an American. The choices Americans make in the coming months could have impacts that echo an eternity.
Frezza concludes his stance on shame by stating,
"Shame is the counterpoint of pride, and both play a pivotal role in keeping an economy working. Take away a man's pride of accomplishment and you will see a lot less accomplishment. Remove the shame of dependence and you will see a lot more dependency. Do both and you've got a recipe for disaster."
