Laziness Is NOT a Virtue

Many lazy people in the U.S. of A. Are living off of the burden taxpayers pay, Living the dream, Me wanna scream Looney bin truck coming to carry me away. People who will not work drive me up a wall While good, decent folk are carrying the ball, Laziness is not a virtue, “A little work never hurt you!” My mama said so, as best I can recall. written June 16, 2021

When you realize those who go to work every day pay a third of their money into a system that pays others to NOT work you have to admire the governor of one of the Northeastern states who made a rule. If you were collecting welfare, you had to get up, get your children dressed, and report to "work" like the workers do every day. Those who did not comply did not get the monetary rewards. What happened? Freeloaders who milk the system and are capable of working moved to another state. Ha!

I didn't know about that, but I heartily agree with that governor. All governors should be so enlightened. I have great sympathy for the poor, but lazy people who won't work, sit all day watching TV, and buying munchies with food stamps make me furious!

Couldn't agree with you more!... Unlike those who go: 'They say that a little work might kill you. I don't want to be the first to find out if it's true or not.' Faith and Strength, my friend! ~ gw

On this one, gw, I stand by my words. One thing we were taught when I was a little kid...laziness won't be tolerated around here! Thanks for your affirming comment.
